Drug trafficking from a foreign nation to a US military installation would be under the purview of the US Army Criminal Investigative Division (CID), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) or the FBI. The local police's authority would be solely any possible involvement in the murders, as the drug trafficking was both interstate AND international. See more »

I'm not in the position to expect anything, but at least I'm up here trying to take responsibility for what I did.
7 November 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

A chauffeur (Joseph Tudisco) was waiting downstairs for his boss when a laborer from a moving company complained about the parking space to deliver a living room set. They both went upstairs to realize the man and his wife were brutally murdered by gunshot; the man's left ear was also cut off. The victim is a Colombian national and a well- known drug dealer in the Big Apple. The investigation lead to a woman used to live above her means, whose husband is an army military officer stationed in Bogotà; she is a drug addicted (cocaine) and she was used as a mule for smuggling drugs: thanks to his husband's job, it was easy for her to take drugs from a military base in Colombia to New York City by chopper. Detectives manage to set a trap for the wannabe king of drug trafficking, but at trial all the witnesses are afraid to be killed by Mafia and refuse to point out the defendant as the killer. It's all up to the woman, does she have the strength to testify against him?

An episode involving drug: dealers are powerful and people fear their reactions over depositions at trial; without proper covering, your life would be forever at stake.
