| You need a license to drive a car, but they'll let anybody have kids.
Two black young kids found a dead body in a park right before going to school. He was stabbed nine times so it must have been personal. The victim was an old man from the neighborhood, where he used to press charges against molesters and robbers. A junkie mom used to boil in hot water his own kid was arrested with traces of blood on her vest and the DNA matched, so case closed. Unfortunately, she died on her cell that night while in custody, due to a birth control item placed in her uterus. Then another case turn up, the junkie's nurse (Stephanie Roth Haberle) wanted to prevent her from having further children and the death was accidental (she didn't know about a previous syndrome the victim had that was lethal for her): anyway the nurse practised the sterilization with other guinea pigs in the past, a technique she learned in Cambodia....

Paul Robinette played again the defense attorney at trial and he is really good in twisting witness arm on the stand. Anyway, many people (including victim's relatives) think the clinic where the nurse work played a public service to avoid unwanted children taking place in this world. The third millennium Josef Mengele on the screen.
