20 Law & Order: SVU Episodes That Were Ripped From The Headlines
“PERSONAL FOULS,” SEASON 13, EPISODE 2
This episode of Law & Order: SVU is super strange, because of the fact that it wasn’t based on a real-life case. Hear us out: When a well-respected community member, football coach, life mentor, and trainer Ray Masters is accused of molesting his underprivileged players, it sheds light on a decades-long string of child abuse and molestation.This may sound familiar, as infamous Penn State coach Joe Paterno was caught covering up almost exactly the same thing. However, this episode of SVU came out before the scandal, showing just how disturbingly-common and systematic this kind of abuse can be.
