Hanging in a netherworld
21 December 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode of Law And Order is guaranteed to put you in deep freeze. For one thing the perpetrator in this case is more sympathetic than his intended victim.

Michael Rooker from South Carolina comes up to New York City to confront Dr. James Rebhorn at a medical conference. Things get out of hand and he winds up killing the wrong doctor. What makes matters worse is that Rebhorn, suspecting someone was stalking him gave his room to that other doctor who wound up beaten to death. Right there you lose a lot of sympathy for him.

What's the cause of Rooker's anger. Even in South Carolina there's some opposition to the death penalty and with lethal injection as the preferred method of execution you need medical professionals. Rebhorn who plays golf with the warden at Hilton Head, when he's down there he assists.

Only Rooker's cousin, a really bad dude everyone admits, had his execution botched and left the man hanging in a netherworld of a permanent vegetative state. Proving that even in this 'humane' method of execution there are problems.

One to think about.
