The Montagues and Capulets of Queens.
bkoganbing11 May 2019
Chris Noth and Julianne Nicholson from Major Case catch the murder of a young Pakistani girl who was filming a beating of some day laborers by some neighborhood youths. With that video it seems like a slam dunk for Logan and Wheeler. But there's a lot more to it than that.

The plot comes right from Romeo&Juliet with her seeing Jason Cerbone from the neighborhood in defiance of her parents who have a husband from the old country all picked out and of course she must remain a virgin.

Cerbone is also killed during the course of the program. What is there to do but figure out which members of these Montagues and Capulets do these awful crimes against young love.

Look for some nice performances from Patti D'Arbanville and Tony LoBianco as Cerbone's mother and uncle.

I tried to save our family from your dishonor
CeccacciPaolo197725 September 2017
A classic episode involving third world culture, that is so different from ours. Honor killing is something occurred a long time ago in my country (luckily only in the south), but right now not anymore. A young Pakistani girl born in stateside is killed and something is written in blood next to her with reference to 9/11. Detectives thought at first the murder was related to racial issue: an orthodox jew, with whom she had an argument because of a video shoot, was cut loose thanks to a rabbi's deposition; beside she was in love with an Italian American boy (whose family didn't approve the affair) and she was 12 weeks pregnant. But Goren and Wheeler had to dig a lot more to find the truth.

This episode shows the rage growth in Muslim population after 9/11 attacks. Anyway it's not easy to them to deal with eastern culture, I think people so radical had better stay in their country of origin (not all of them of course, only the one who can't integrate)
