60. SVU is about sexual assault.
Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 10:10 AM by Occulus
Always was, always has been, always will be. That's the premise of the show.

I've seen lots of episodes of SVU. They tend to follow news events of one sort or another. Given that there was a "protection tent" for the women of one of the OWS protests, and given that there were a couple sexual assaults reported at one of them, and given the current-events nature of any reference to OWS, it does not require a magic spell, flow chart, or cereal box dessert recipe for us to put two and two together to get to the most likely conclusion: the victim, rapist, or both would have been someone from their version of OWS (since OWS isn't a brand name, they may even have used the actual acronym).

Why am I so sure? Because that's what SVU does, in almost every episode. On both that and its parent show, the now-defunct original series, actual news stories are used as a backdrop for the crime du jour. In fact, not to put too fine a point on it, but one of the parent show's later episodes used members of a website very much like Free Republic.

I guess you just have to have seen the show to make the connection. Regardless, I'm about 95% certain OWS would not have been painted in a good light.
