» 8/22/13 2:40pm 8/22/13 2:40pm

Law and Order: Special Victims Unit doesn't shy away from crafting "ripped from the headlines" plot lines: last season, for instance, they aired an episode clearly meant to mirror Chris Brown's brutal assault of Rihanna and and episode that was just a monstrous agglomeration of various campus rape headlines (two rape… » 8/22/13 2:40pm 8/22/13 2:40pm
