I usually don't watch Law and Order (Special Victims Unit). I came home tired after a gig and flipped on the tube.

There was an hour-long program on apprehending a pedophile ring with connections to NAMBLA. Of course it was too cut and dried to be handled in an hour but it seemed to be informed and accurate in it's information and attitude toward the problem of boy sex abuse. I shed a bunch of tears watching it.

I was glad to see that even though it is rare, the media sometimes handles this subject. More programs like this would contribute to a better informed public about the matter.

Some of you on the west coast may still be able to catch it, unless it's a rerun. I was not able to find a program number for it.

I find that this was a rerun of a long - playing series of Law and Order.

Here is the Internet Movie Database reference:

It was originally aired: 1 November 2002 (Season 4, Episode 6)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0629610/

It is found as a Netflix offering (you have to subscribe to Netflix), either to be viewed instantly or as a dvd: Look for Season 4, disc 2, the first program titled: "Angels"

http://www.netflix.com/WiMovie/Law-Order...mp;trkid=438381

It is for sale on Amazon.com, both new and used.

http://www.amazon.com/Law-Order-Fourth-1993-1994-Season/dp/B000BGR1AK/

Robert F. Campbell & Jonathan Greene were the writers, and Arthur W. Forney directed.

I didn't realize there were so many episodes of this program. Make sure you get the right one.

I think that episodes like this can be healing because they can connect us with our emotions involved in the situation. I'm concerned that watching the program all the time might have a hardening effect on us, but maybe not.

Thanks a lot!
I think you are right about watching these kind of programs all the time... it is a healing thing, but overdose can corrupt the image of reality.

Yes, that was a very hard episode to watch. I also cried during it.

An episode called "Quarry" was also a very difficult one to watch.
