Skip to comments.The Trayvon Martin/Paula Deen Episode of SVU Was Absolutely Ridiculous

Trayvon Martin, Paula Deen, Stop and Frisk and Assistant DA Raul Esparza? Dick Wolf was not kidding with this whole Law & Order/ripped from the headlines thing. Of course, if he wanted to be more accurate, the slogan would go "ripped from one headline, ripped from another headline, ripped from a third headline and then put in a blender with an added sprinkle of crazy," but maybe that's too clunky.
Last night's episode of SVU managed to combine so many hot-button current events (current=three months old) that it could make a gal's head spin. It began like all SVUs with a serial rapist attacking women on the streets of New York. None of the rapist's victims are able to give a good description of him all they know is that he's young, African American, wore a hoodie and would say "I know you want it" before committing his crime. (Is this a Robin Thicke reference? Let's assume it is.)
The spree leads the detectives to violate the constitutional rights of young black men all over the city by stopping and frisking them. Meanwhile, celebrity chef Jolene Castille (played by a comically evil Cybill Shepherd) shoots and kills 16-year-old African American named Mehcad Carter outside of her brownstone. She tells the detectives that the young man tried to attack her, that he's the rapist they're looking for and that she shot him in self-defense.
Unsurprisingly, it turns out that Mehcad was not the rapist and he was really just approaching Not Paula Deen for an autograph. The detectives then discover that Castille has a history of racism and quite possibly shot Mehcad solely because he was black....

If Jezebel finds it insane, that is saying something. Law and Order SVU has become the biggest joke in cop shows in decades. Season 12 broke tv records for laughable political correctness.
BTW, I did not know linking to Jezebel is allowed around here. They consider everyone who is not a far leftist statist Obama groupie to be part of the oppressive, white patriarchy that denies women the right to be free.
Maybe so, but as I stated on an earlier thread, whenever Mariska Hargitay is on screen its all good. At least that’s the opinion of this middle aged guy.
The most laughable part was that NYC would actually issue a permit to carry.
I shot my Tee Vee with double tap because “Mariska” face appeared on it and she spoke some human sounds.
Need I explain what “double tap” is?
Methinks the Tee Vee show is misnamed. It should be named “ Internationalist Law and Order”. With American NKVD bitches wearing hammer and sickle red stars on their badges.
Lenin would be a fan...
