“The trial ADAs and the investigators from the DAu0026#39;s office are facing the toughest cases of all in this episode, that of police brutality. Hard to prosecute because the police never like informing on their own. Itu0026#39;s called the blue wall of silence.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eIn this case there was a disturbance at a gay bar and a young 18 year old kid was taken away. He resisted arrest and struck one of the officers. So Domenick Lombardozzi decided to give him a little payback and sodomized him with a nightstick in the tradition of Amadou Diallo. Only an artery was pierced in the victimu0026#39;s rectum and he died.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eEverybody wants a piece of this case. District Attorney Fred Dalton Thompson and Armand Schultz the US Attorney do a little legal jousting for jurisdiction. And Bebe Neuwirth and Amy Carlson have to contend with Investigator Scott Cohenu0026#39;s reluctance to get involved in a case involving his own precinct. In addition he knows one of the two cops charged Mike Colter who is Lombardozziu0026#39;s partner.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThings get a bit heated between Neuwirth and Cohen and frankly I canu0026#39;t blame Neuwirth because Cohen is making her job all that more difficult. When heu0026#39;s put on the stand she makes it difficult for him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTo see how everyoneu0026#39;s agenda is met, rent this Trial By Jury episode. Itu0026#39;s pretty good.”
