A Miami woman visits her storage space and a male jumps out of the car and kills her. It sure seemed like it was for no reason whatsoever.
The woman was a mother of 4 who lost her house and job. When her family pleaded on TV that the community helped, I was getting teary-eyed. One relative was crying so hard, she had to be taken out of the press conference.
At first, the suspect and his peer admit to several robberies, but say nothing of the murder. This reminded me of "In Cold Blood" where one criminal just assumed he was in for passing bad checks and then gets the surprise that he's suspected of murder.
When the police confront one suspect here, he asks to speak to his girlfriend. He wanted to know if he could just argue that the guy on video was too blurry to be him. Instead of gullibly sticking by her man, the girlfriend said, "You know I have 5 kids myself," meaning, she sympathized with the victim, not her man.
The cop asks the suspect if he got anything out of the victim's purse and he replied no. The cop then explained that the victim was a mother of 4 who lost her job and home. The suspect bursts into tears. This reminded me of the final "Star Wars" prequel when the Emperor tells Darth Vader that he killed Nathalie Portman.
The suspect claimed that he shot involuntarily as the decedent pulled back and his trigger finger slipped. This case may be a good example of teaching folk about second-degree murder laws.
It just upsets me that real-life people went through this. The decendent may remind many (of us Black) viewers of their mothers, aunts, older female cousins, etc.

Wow! Just wow! I was expecting just some episode that would go in one ear and right out the other as a viewer. However, this episode shocked and resonated with me for many reasons. Before watching this episode, I saw another one where the crimes weren't solved until weeks later, far outside "the first 48 hours." Here, they solve both cases within 10 hours, but don't let that downplay the episode's significance.

This episode had the Black storyline and the rainbow flag one. Usually, I'd say the two storylines in the series are of equal length. The Black one was shorter this time. A man is knifed to death. His girlfriend refused to say whether or not her biological sibling was involved, but he wasn't. Talk about red herrings! However, the killer was a man who got beat up, went to his home, grabbed a knife, and stabbed the guy. Some may sympathize with him, but he had the time to call the police or let things go after he was in a safe space. In criminal law classes, they say it only takes a second to develop the mindset for murder. This storyline could be shown in criminal law courses. My family may choke me for admitting this: but my great-grandfather died when he and a policeman shot at each other. If my great-grandfather had just let things go and listened to his wife, he would have lived a long, full life. However, some men, and I purposely gender that, end up dying trying to "settle scores." Unfortunately, men may easily become these rebels without a cause and they end up paying with their lives for their stupid pride. One brothaman is dead and another will spend years in prison all for some mess that should have never escalated to that point from jump.

I will admit there is a part of me that is a bit embarrassed about being completely addicted to this show. It's easily judged by others as 'trash tv.' But it's not. I prefer to call it 'cinema verite' : ) it's true life, and to me each show is like a mini-documentary. A document of the people's lives, the investigators' lives, and how maligned individuals can become, in our society in particular. Over the years I've watched this show with a black and white view: bad guy, good guy. And on the surface, that's true. It's incredibly how little life is valued. Someone killed over $20?! Outrageous. But after watching enough of these shows, I've come to see that the tragedy is simply of these peoples' lives. The criminals, I mean. They are lost. They kill someone, cause tremendous suffering for those left behind, and can't comprehend it, because they don't know what it is to love or to value people or life. I'm amazed that these detectives can be called any time, night or day, and face such horrific stories. I would be very bitter and I think depressed to have this responsibility. It is huge. But thank goodness there are those who are called to carry out this work. I say, if you can drop intellectual snobbery, you'll see a great deal of meaning behind these shows.

Don't start watching unless you have nothing to do for the next several hours - you can't watch just one.

This is my review on "Life Snatched".

I opened my review with those few words because I don't know what some of these other so-called reviews are talking about. The most favorable review AND the most critical both talk of two cases here in this episode. There is only one case this entire episode centers on. In reference to the one reviewer who claims two cases were solved in 10 hours, I beg your pardon, but it took a full three days to solve this one single case.

I think the reason I enjoy this episode so much is because it's an extremely emotional and moving case on both sides of the coin. I'm an experienced screenwriter and feel I understand the elements a good storyline, emotion, and drama but I really don't. Fact IS stranger than fiction and this episode is a direct example of that well known phrase. This episode is one of the few that always pulls my emotional strings and brings a tear to my eye every time I watch it.

The victim is killed in one of the most senseless matters I've ever seen in this long running series and the person responsible didn't understand that fact until he learns of it later during his interrogation and subsequent admission of guilt. When told about the facts surrounding this woman's life and the reason as to why the stolen purse had no money, credit cards or valuables in it, the suspect is visibly upset, hurt and angry with himself. I believe his emotions were genuine.
This is one case I not only feel bad for the poor woman and her family but I feel just as for the man responsible and his family and friends as well. Nobody wins in homicide. Both the victim and the one responsible lose in the end.
