No excuse
9 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

During the Puerto Rican Day Parade as in a whole lot of parades there are a lot of folks who take the celebration as an excuse for bad behavior. Sometimes it could just be public drunkenness or something of that nature. Other times it could be as serious as manslaughter.

The estranged wife of a millionaire is found in Central Park Lake near the rowboats. The investigation after a couple of red herrings including one that went to trial finally settles on young Victor Anthony who in fact was Brazilian, but he wanted to get into the spirit of the celebration.

Liquor sure is no excuse for what he did, but he saw his buddies disrespecting the women parade watchers and celebrants and got caught up in the moment. Maybe he did, but that was no excuse.

A tragic story because Anthony doesn't seem like a bad individual, just one who made a horrible mistake.
