So the cop sabotaged the car? Could he be charged with any part of the murder? Even assuming he wasn't actively in cahoots with the two kids who actually killed the guy?
I was expecting the Queens ADA (or wherever she was from) to be behind the whole thing: She gets the kids to kill the guy for her, and she reaps the fame and fortune gained thereby. Especially since she railroaded the original victim into claiming it was rape *and* threatened to tack on a kidnapping charge.
