Cyrus Lupo: The bloods and the crips are not terrorists, and neither are a bunch of hardhats and day traders with anger issues. But it sure makes a hell of a sound byte when you're running for election.
D.A. Jack McCoy: [entering] I see. A few law school classes, detective, and all of a sudden you're an expert on jurisprudence?
Cyrus Lupo: Maybe not, but I do have one credential you don't. I spent four years chasing actual terrorists.

These guys, they're feeding their egos.
19 March 2018 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

After a date with an asian girl during lunch break, a white collar started feeling sick. Internal bleeding caused his death after few hours. Detectives thought at first he was poisoned, but after attending a street fight in Union Square, they realized he was beaten very hard during a "sporting event". The girl pointed out a construction worker as the opponent, maybe he kept on beating the victim despite he surrendered: even in this fight you must play by the rules. Negligence homicide was the best Cutter managed to do, but the victim's brother, a fireman (again Pablo Schreiber), was not agree with the plea and he started a feud in which he killed the defendant together with some coworkers. Even an innocent bystander died in the riot. McCoy took advantage of terrorism statute to prosecute the offenders.

Video posted on the internet helped detectives and lawyers throughout the episode. An episode that reminds me "Gangs of New York" movie staged on the new millennium. McCoy seemed to be proud of his second in command.
