Arthur Branch: [to Cabot] Alexandra, did you do a deal with Joseph Blaine?

Arthur Branch: Man two. For double murder. I think you let that oily-tongued Tennessee weasel Barry Moredock outmaneuver you.

"Somebody has to pay"
14 May 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

A school shooting at a Junior High School of two popular jock athletes brings the SVU squad in. But just who is to blame is the question and as DA Fred Dalton Thompson says to Stephanie March, 'someone has to pay'.

March is not inclined after John Cullum gives a spirited defense of young Rory Culkin the guilty party. True the kid was picked on and an incredibly stupid janitor actually gave this kid a gun. But as it turns out young Mr. Culkin was taking psychotropic drugs that really messed with his young mind.

When I was his age this was something unheard of and in a way I feel unable to comment. I knew someone who lived in a group home who was given it and from what I know of his history that wasn't the way to go either.

As it turns out Culkin and mother Mare Winningham were part of a new marketing technique by a pharmaceutical company the details of which I won't go into, but corporate greed is not unknown in that industry.

Mother and son Winningham and Culkin stand out and the issue is still with us.
