Sandusky Scandal to be Featured on Law & Order

Without a doubt, the Sandusky Scandal has entered the nation’s pop culture. From Halloween costumes to South Park, the child predator has inspired numerous people to use him and Penn State university for material. Next week, over Thanksgiving break, you might be able to share the pop scene with your family.

At the end of tonight’s Law & Order: SVU episode, viewers connected the preview for next week’s airing with the scandal around Penn State.

Decades of sexual abuse? Institutional cover-up? A spectacled man who wishes he could have helped them?

Is this enough to say that Special Victims Unit uses the Sandusky Scandal for “Lesson’s Learned” (The apostrophe is included in the official title)?

Interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time people made the connection between the show and Penn State. Last November, people wondered if the NBC show predicted the Sandusky Scandal when an episode from the previous month was about a predatory and prominent basketball coach.

If we learned anything from Law & Order: SVU last night, it is that Scott Bakula should play Jerry Sandusky alongside Al Pacino in the Paterno movie.
