24x12 - Blood Out

Post by bunniefuu »

In the criminal justice system,

sexually based offenses

are considered especially heinous.

In New York City,
the dedicated detectives

who investigate these vicious felonies

are members of an elite squad

known as the Special Victims Unit.

These are their stories.

I want confirmation that Oscar Papa

put the hit out on me.

I don't k*ll people, Captain.

No, you have kids do it for you.

I wanna show you something.

open rapes,
perpetrated by known BX recruiters.

Maria Garcia ID'd both
Bugbear and Sacrilege

as the guys who r*ped her.

Can we get her to testify?

So far, no.

Benny Barros.

My client has all his boss's
phone conversations on tape.

And he's willing to testify.


Oscar Papa, you're under arrest

for r*pe and attempted m*rder.

Everything okay?

Just found out my cousin's d*ad.

s*ab in Green Haven,
along with his friend, Sabo.

Oh, what happened?

The cops put them on the same block

in Green Haven as th Street.

After that subway thing?


Just trying to flip them.

This Duarte guy, he have any kids?


but that bitch from the news does.

- Benson?
- Yeah.

She got a son.

All right.

We're gonna make this right.


You know the rule...
Blood for blood.

Get some principiantes
to chop her little bastard son,

right in front of her.


You heard enough?

My client was in distress,

expressing frustration.

There is a difference
between intent and hyperbole.

Well, unfortunately,

this sick bastard's hyperbole

carries a lot of weight.

Benny Barros is an
amoral opportunist

who secretly recorded my client

in exchange for what?

Citizenship, and a safehouse,

about as far away from
your client as possible.

Benny, he's playing you.

I think you'll find once
your anger settles, that it is

the very man that you have
in witness protection

who ordered a group
of kids to att*ck you

and your son with machetes.

Captain Benson, as I've stated,

I'm sorry you were hurt.

But it pains me more that
your son was traumatized...

If you say one more word,

about my son,

it will be your last.

I think we're done here.

We'll be charging your client
with multiple counts

of r*pe in the first,
not to mention

attempted m*rder of a police
officer and her son.

That was a huge mistake letting
you go in there by yourself.

Counselor Swope
is gonna claim NYPD bias.

Promise me that he'll be convicted,

because I need to know,

that Noah is safe,

before I bring him home.

Oscar Papa, you are charged

with counts of r*pe
in the first.

- How do you plead?
- Not guilty, Your Honor.

And on the two counts of
attempted m*rder in the second?

Not guilty, Your Honor.

People on bail?

Oscar Papa is a career
criminal who ordered

the gangland style hit
of an NYPD captain

and her -year-old son.

He is the acknowledged leader
of BX ,

and he's guilty of participation

in at least rapes that we know of.

We request remand.

Your Honor, these m*rder charges

are up to interpretation.

The defense intends
to paint Oscar Papa

as some kind of local
youth advocate when, in fact,

we all know that he is the head
of a criminal organization

that could more accurately
be described as a death cult.

He has never been
charged with a crime.

Well, he is now.

Defendant is remanded
to Rikers pending trial.

Next case.

Must feel good.

You wanna clean up our trash

like the Italian cops did with the Mob?

Let's save the fist bumps
til this prick's in prison.

Well, DOJ's pulling out
of the Bronx.

You know what that means.

You got a whole crew
of new detectives

you gotta break in.

Hell no. I'm done.
I told you.

That deaf girl case was my last
piece of unfinished business.

What, you got some kind of monogrammed

hammock in Mexico I don't know about?


Believe me, a settlement like that

isn't as good as it sounds.

You expect me to believe that, right?

Uncle Sam took half of it.

My ex-wife, Rose, took the rest.

Poor Bruno.

So, thank you
for picking up the check.

You're not fooling anybody, Bruno.

All right, tell you what.

Let's put your
detective skills to the test.

- Let's go.
- If you can tell me what I have left

within one million,

I'll pick up the tab.


Judging from the way you threw
that Patek at that lab rat

like your wrist was on f*re,

I'm guessing,
you got at least half of that,

kickin' around somewhere.

Am I right?

- Close enough.

Just in time.

Phoebe wants me home.

So what are you gonna
do now, climb Machu Picchu?

- Surf the Gold Coast?

Ah, I don't know.

Probably sleep in for once.

Find Rose on a dating app,
and swipe right.

That sounds healthy.

Hey, yo, Orlando!

- Stop! What the hell?

For what purpose?

To show my brother
what they could do

to the rest of the women
in our family,

our mom, or our baby sister,

Were these the two men
who as*ault you?

Lindsay del Toro,
AKA Bug Bear, is now deceased.

Hector Suarez, street name
Sacrilege, is in Rikers.

Now, you heard testimony,

that DNA links both of these men

to Ms. Garcia's as*ault.

Ms. Garcia, did you tell
your brother what had happened?

I did.

He told me he had no choice.

That BX would target
other women in our family

if he refused to join.

Which is why you withdrew
your initial complaint

to the police.

I was afraid of retaliation
against Rodrigo.

But he was k*lled.

to protect him anymore.

Thank you.

I am...

I am very sorry for what
happened to you, Ms. Garcia.

But haven't the men,
responsible for your ordeal

been brought to justice?

One is already d*ad,
and the other is in jail,

awaiting his own trial.

Yes, but they were acting
on Oscar Papa's orders.

any direct knowledge of that?

Other than what the police,
and the...

- No, but...

Did your brother
implicate my client?

- No...
- You know Oscar Papa, don't you,

from around the neighborhood?

Everyone does.

He's a customer sometimes
at my family's restaurant.

You invited two NYPD captains
to that same restaurant

under false pretenses?

I had to do that.

♪ ♪

Captain Duarte,
can you explain what this is

to the jury, please?

A recruitment tool for BX ...

Undergarments of r*pe victims,
mothers and sisters,

hung from a tree,
to intimidate vulnerable teens

into signing up as principiantes.


That's what they call
new recruits at BX .

And how many women were you able to

associate with r*pe cases?

Through DNA
and victim IDs, about .

And what did your
investigations conclude?

Two mid-level recruiters, Sacrilege

and Bug Bear, of the Tremont clique,

were responsible for most of the rapes.

Now, do mid-level recruiters

for BX usually act independently?

In my experience, no.

BX is a hierarchical organization.

There are multiple levels
of the command chain.

And how do g*ng members
usually move up the ranks?

Through committing acts
of v*olence, including,

r*pe and m*rder at
the behest of their superiors.

Does anything happen without

the knowledge of the
head of the organization?

No, it does not.

Orders of v*olence

only spill down from the leadership

to the soldiers
and the principiantes.

And in your ongoing investigations

into the BX leadership,
who did you focus on?

That man right there,
Oscar Papa.

Thank you, Captain.

Captain Duarte,

you investigated BX for five years.

Is that fair to say?

Yes, that sounds about right.

Well, isn't it also fair to say

that you have a personal
vendetta against BX ?

A vendetta, no.
I'm just doing my job.

But you, you did own a vintage Mustang?

- Yes.
- What happened to it?

Two BX g*ng members followed
me home and set it on f*re.

And that made you pretty angry,
didn't it?

What do you think?

Well, angry enough to push
one of the boys off a roof?

As Counselor Swope knows,

Sleep's death
was ruled an accident.


But, one of your colleagues,
Captain Olivia Benson,

the boy, didn't she?

It was a misunderstanding.

Well, is it true that

Jose Cruz, Carlos Lopez...

You recognize them?

You should.

They're three of the five principiantes

that you ordered to
k*ll Captain Duarte,

and they're willing to testify.

Testify to what?

Well, unlike Fugazi, they say,

that they got their
orders to k*ll Duarte

- from a prison call.
- Which are all recorded.

You had to know that.

I'm not denying anything, Captain.

You got me d*ad to rights.

I need to confer with my client.

No, you don't.

Sit down.

We're listening.

I just wanted to say

I know how much you
respected Captain Duarte.

And that's why you k*lled him?

You know the rule.

Blood for blood.

He wanted to take
away everything I've built.

I couldn't allow that to happen.

♪ ♪

You knew that you could run
your organization from here.

Most of my crew is in here.

And like I said,

you can't k*ll an idea.

So you knew exactly
what you were doing,

when you made that call.

The question is...


The truth?

I got a soft spot for you, Captain.

I see the way you look at me.

Most women say they
would k*ll for their kid, but,

not a lot of them would go toe to toe

with a guy like me for them.

You are a better mother
than I've ever had.

We can talk about your childhood later.

What I need to know is,

is your client going to
plead guilty to m*rder?

But not the rapes.

♪ ♪

Hang on.

I need, you to assure me,

that my son is safe.

He won't be harmed.

I got what I wanted.


We're even now.

♪ ♪

for the attempted m*rder on you.

to life for Duarte.

He'll be eligible for
parole around .

And the five principiantes?

We're gonna go after them all.

- Noah headed home?
- He is.

s*ab's driving him down.

And I'm going to meet them at home.

I didn't wanna drive,

after the day that we've had.

There's nobody that I trust more,

to bring my son home in one piece,

than s*ab.

I'll give Amanda your love.

Please do.

Officer Churlish,

you're a long way from the Bronx.

I have something I wanted to give you.


I left my phone on,

when Detective Velasco
was talking to that recruiter.

Aside from it being a felony,

why would you do that?

You'll see when you listen to it.

♪ ♪

He's out, like a light.

- He's had a hard week.
- Yeah.

So did you.

Thank you, Elliot.

Thank you for picking him up.

You're family.

What are you looking for?

- Sugar?
- It's here.

I have some here somewhere.

Why didn't you call me?

Because I knew that
you would try to protect me.

And there's something wrong with that?

I care for you.


♪ ♪

Liv, look at me.

Here it is.



Elliot, I want to.

I want to, but I can't.

Why not?

Because, what if it doesn't work out?

And what if things work out?

Elliot, I'm not ready for this.

I'm not ready for this.

I'm not ready for this.
