Minorities in the Crosshairs
7 May 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

A significant Muslim for peace is stabbed to death. Meanwhile, a high profile young woman acts as a drug mule. She goes to her mother's whom she hasn't seen in years. This leads to a meandering set of circumstances. The terrorist squad is out to get her. Nikki is being he bleeding heart again. Next episode should be enlightening.
