Law & Order: SVU recap and review. Law & Order has a ton of different spin-offs. Law & Order: SVU is one of their longest running, if not the longest. It stars the dynamic and gorgeous Captain Olivia Benson. Law & Order is about a New York police department, specializing in special victims, e.g. mainly women who were raped. And the prosecution of the rapists. Just as a side note, Detective Munch was also Detective Munch on a show called Homicide: Life on the Street. As in, the exact same character. I know, freaky.
Maureen’s Legal Bottom Line
The bias for the police and district attorney is real. This show casts them in a positive light, which is not realistic. Shows like this also portray the vast majority of cases that are solved. This is not even remotely true. Most crime does not get solved, and the police are not this good. And, I hate to tell you this, but lots of District Attorneys do not care about serving justice up in a dish cold. They care about their win ratios. In other words, they are like every other litigator.
