Law and Order: Organized Crime pushed the Black Lives Matter narrative again this week, claiming that police officers randomly kill innocent young black men without consequence.
In the episode, “I Got This Rat,” on May 20, Detective Elliot Stabler (Christopher Meloni) questions the woman who ordered the murder of his beloved wife. He discovers that Angela Wheatley (Tamara Taylor), who is black, wanted his wife murdered as revenge for her own son’s death because Angela’s ex-husband Richard (Dylan McDermott), a drug dealer, lied to her and said that her son was killed by cops. (Richard had actually ordered her son’s killing.)
Wheatley: Richard told me that it was a targeted hit by police as part of an anti-drug operation. Harlem Heat they called it. He said– Richard said, that this operation was led by a detective by the name of Elliot Stabler.
Stabler: And you believed that?
Wheatley: I did. Detective Elliot Stabler. One of those faceless officers who guns down young black men with impunity and expects never to face any consequences. Richard asked if I wanted him to die, this detective, and I said no. No. I wanted him to suffer like I’m suffering. I wanted… Him to feel…This pain worse than death.
Just before this interview, Wheatley tells Ayanna Bell (Danielle Moné Truitt), the black commander of the organized crime unit, “If you ever have a son, you’ll understand you’ll do whatever you’re able to to keep him safe, especially from the police.” The nephew of Bell’s lesbian “wife” was viciously attacked by evil officers in the previous episode.
Black Lives Matter’s paranoid lies about police officers have led to real police officers being murdered by BLM fanatics. In the fictionalized Law and Order: Organized Crime universe, it lead to the murder of a cop’s wife. I doubt the show’s writers have the self-awareness to realize the episode did not quite make the point they thought it was making.
