411 Mania - "In the end, ‘Public Enemy’ is a solid action packed episode with its fair share of logic flaws. But I can ignore all of that since the writers took some genuine risks with their universe. By exposing Oliver and effectively shutting down the heroes, the cops make a clear statement about vigilantism. Of course, Roy eventually takes the fall, yet still plenty of damage is already done. At the same time, they either need to speed up the flashback storyline or just axe it altogether because, as of right now, it is simply a waste of space — the only lull of this extremely fast paced episode."
