Background information and notes Edit
- This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Larry Davis case. Larry Davis was a New Yorker who, in 1986, shot at 6 police officers who were carrying out a raid. Davis later claimed the officers were out to murder him because of his knowledge of corrupt cops but the officers claimed they were only there to question Davis about the killing of four (suspected) drug dealers. Davis managed to escape and a manhunt was on for him; he took hostages and only sundered himself to the police when the news media showed up and he was promised not to be harmed. (Source: Larry Davis (criminal) at Wikipedia)
- In this episode we learn that Max Greevey lost a former partner because he was fatally shot during a traffic stop.
- Wendy Makkena also guest stars in episode 16 of the 12th season, "Born Again", as Janet Weston.
