DS Devlin and DS Brooks investigate the murder of a 13 year-old boy, Sean Monroe, the son of a fellow police officer, who was killed and put down a storm drain. A note found on the body points to the work of Andrew Dillon, who was sentenced for an earlier racial murder and is serving his sentence. The racial motivation for the killing seems confirmed when a second boy, Dev Desai, is found strangled with the same note in his pocket. However, their investigation leads to a security guard, Marcus Wright, who admits to having encounters with both boys at the shops where he works. He says the boys deaths were God's will and he was simply doing God's work. If Wright is to be believed, it means that Dillon was wrongfully convicted. The case becomes personal when James Steel is accused of having purposely buried a witness statement that would have likely exonerated Dillon. He finds himself in dock but the judge allows him to conduct his own defense. Written by garykmcd

James Steel. I'm arresting you on suspicion of perverting the course of justice.
25 October 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

Policemen were looking for a son of a fellow officer whose cellphone is located near the river bank. When the dead body fell down from a storm drain, the research sadly was over. At first detectives began questioning local people who belong to National Front, because of a note found in victim's pocket. Then they tried to know something more about the boy's life: he was a street dancer and his coach was previously accused of being a pedophile. Anyway, after another non- white boy (indian) was killed in the same way with a note, they cut the teacher loose. The killings are not racially but religion related, because a black man wanted sinners' death (one of the boy was addicted to pornography, the other was a two-bit thief) and he took credit of other murders happened in the past. Being the prosecutor, Steele sent to prison the wrong person years before, so he's the one who had to face Justice System this time. But he knows how to get away with it.

The argument occurred between Law (Steel) and Order (Brooks and Devlin) in this episode reminds me the debate that occurred inside a company between sales marketing and manufacturing: there could have been issues, but a power can't subdue the other.
