158. Nonsennse.
A discussion forum is not about "getting involved." It is about spreading memes and the memes you seem to attach to tend to be anti-OWS. There is absolutely no way that LAW and Order was going to contribute a positive OWS story, particularly with their Special Victims Unit.

But let's think more about the theoretical nature of the show. It is yet another in a long list of crime shows that: Deals primarily with street crime or violent crime (rather than white collar crime). It suggests the police do not really arrest the wrong person, and when they do it is all cleared up within an hour. It suggests that the DA usually only prosecutes guilty people, and if they don't it is, again, cleared up within an hour.

And that is the typical of the regular show. SVU is all sex offense, all the time. I don't know how this is a "mirror" to the OWS movement as it has nothing to do with what the cause is. It has nothing to do with even the primary cause of injury or hospitalization of the people protesting. It isn't a damned mirror at all unless someone gets most of their information from Fox News. If the only story you are willing to tell about a massive, national, committed movement, is about a rape that takes place then it really isn't much of a story at all.
