I never thought of a state mental institution as a place to be coddled.
28 November 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

Two mothers were taking a stroll together with their newborn babies when one was shot in the neck by a straight bullet. Detectives thought at first the woman as an innocent bystander and the real target was the owner of a Chinese restaurant for extortion matters. Anyway, another two people (an accountant and a man sit in a park bench) were killed right away by the same gun at long range, so there was a serial killer shooting from some rooftops in the neighborhood. When a four victims was killed far away from the others, police was in a dead end. Luckily they managed to trace the weapon down and thanks to notes left in the last crime scene, Briscoe and Green narrow the suspect down to a former marksman in the army (Ty Burrell), who had just been fired by the last man killed. He may have murdered the other three to put police off track, but there is something else: he had a son, who is not his real son because he kidnapped him ten years before....

A sad episode, in which we see a teenager totally brainwashed by his kidnapper. I feel pity for his original family that felt into despair for over ten years and he doesn't even recognize them.
