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

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.
