In 2012, teacher Donald Barber of British Columbia faced allegations of rape and torture after a female student told police he had been sexually abusing her for years.

When police explained to the alleged victim that they couldn't press charges against Mr.Barber because there was no evidence to support the heinous allegations she had made, six weeks later she produced a hand written diary describing rapes, water boarding, being buried alive, etc.

After investigation, it was found that all allegations were taken directly from episodes of Law & Order: SVU. Mr.BArber had all ready been fired, his spotless reputation ruined, before these facts came to light. Mr. Barber is now suing, as he should.

My rant in this situation lies in the fact that this girls parents or guardians, what have you, had allowed her to watch fictionalize do accounts of rape, murder, torture, pedophelia, etc. Some might argue that since these things exist in the world, we shouldn't shield our children from them, but I do not believe fictionalized, dramatized accounts of horrendous acts do justice to victims, or do anything to educate people about justice, or sexual assault in general.

The child who accused her teacher in this case likely saw the attention afforded to victims of assault, and wrongly assumed she would get the same level of attention; and, in the influence of man made rape as entertainment, ruined a mans life.

What is the point of this show? It does nothing to showcase what real victims go through.
Also, who are the parents who take their children to an audition for roles on these shows? "It'll be fun, honey, all you have to do is pretend you were raped by a school teacher!" I can't even imagine.

This is a rant, so excuse any poorly made points. My main idea here is...Who decided that rape Sh ould be entertaining? Ugh.

I hope the girl in this real life case someday comes to realize just what she did to this man; for some reason I doubt she will.

Hollywood is paedosadist & rape central...


So it's highly likely they get a kick out of hiring child actors for these roles...


In turn influencing those who suffer from Pseudologia Fantastica into destroying lives...




SVU is a dream show for the paedosadists in Hollywood.

all the better to terrify you with


the opening scenes for these shows always seem to be the same..
..they stumble across some unfortunate corpse, examine it some, then make a wisecrack & the show begins

i don't know why people watch crap like this..
..probably similar reasons why people hang around alex jones sites & other pickle factories

I totally agree... I had someone who, from one of these shows (I don't know which one), tell me how they could kill someone with an icicle and there would be no evidence because the evidence/murder weapon (icicle) would melt. I do know for a fact this person was joking with the comment, BUT it is just SICKENING they would put this idea out there for someone who was serious about it.

There was a fictional story in 1953, called Lambs to the Slaughter, where a women murders her husband with a frozen leg of lamb, then cooks and eats it, leaving no murder weapon.

Somebody beat Hollywood to it by several decades.

Wow. Some people will believe anything they see on television. The likelihood that a person could be fatally stabbed with a wieldable icicle outside of Antarctica is laughable.

NOT by being stabbed, but by going through an orifice straight to the brain. NOT going into detail...

Without ratings, a show doesn't last. It doesn't matter if people think that it's there for the amusement of the top Hollywood brass or not, without the incoming revenue of viewership, a show will get cancelled. The bottom line rules.

Your take on this is understandable, but it's not the only one. What the girl did was wrong, but she is by no means the first or only one to do this. Countless others have done the same and without the influence of that or any other T.V. show or movie. Lives and reputations have been ruined by lonely girls for a long time. If you're going to blame Law and Order for this, you may as well put the Lifetime Network, the Saw series, etc. up to the fire as well. If Hollywood took every show/movie off the air/out of theaters that could influence a delusional young mind........Hollywood wouldn't exist. And if you think that's possible in this day and age............

Two positives can come from this: She'll find it very hard to get a date from here on out, and the teacher can be cross-trained to be a counselor for rape victims (In a twisted way, he's got experience in that now).........making a lot more money than he did being a regular teacher.

Despite your belief, that show has more redeeming qualities than not. And yes, I like the show so my opinion might be biased.

I'm only pointing towards Law & Order as the cause of this specific case.

I'm also biased in that I believe television should be consumed responsibly, and don't often partake.

*sighs* The girl should lay off the TV and go out and see the sun.

Thank you. I like online learning opportunities like this. For myself, I don't have much interest in creating television content. Are you working on something?

Yes, mainly documentaries for my personal efforts in creating for the TV and cable platforms; Currently working on one focusing on Women in Law Enforcement and a feature script about poker tournaments, hot rods, sex, drugs and rock and roll.

Also I am a proud SAG/AFTRA member and have worked on Breaking Bad, Messengers, Night Shift, Better Call Saul, Longmier, Crash, In Plain Sight, and many Indy and feature movies. All shot here in "Tamalewood"

Not just that show, there are many, many shows with a ridiculous amount of gore coming out of the US. I like the story lines of some, but I turn away at the blood every chance I get.
I can't help wondering what they're going to show when they think close up dismemberment isn't enough any more.
It's disgusting.

And the icicle thing, I knock them off my roof every year so that one doesn't come down on one of the dogs. Where I let them develop, they get really big, thick, heavy, and pointy. Not taking the chance.

There are maturity ratings for a reason ( at least in my country ), i wonder what rate actual show had.
Interesting is what kind of maturity ratings parents give to this show.
parents opinion
People have got blind to violence and it seems that they have got blind to sexual violence as well. Grade 8 in school, the child is about 13 to 14 years old. Girls do mature physically earlier than boys and also pretend to be adults, which they are not..
Parents seem to need schooling how to raise kids.

This kind of stuff happens much more than we know or think...and here on ats ive seen how quickly people throw around the word "kill" when there is a suspect in a crime without understanding how many false reports fly around. If the article read "Teacher Rapes Student" 90% of you on here would be like...lock that guy away forever, or kill him...etc etc.... It takes one accusation and everything unfolds. To every bad taste joke he ever told, or girl he ever hit on...anything he did will now be judged with question. Imagine if someone like the nsa pulled every text he had and submitted the awkward ones allowing them to not be in context. Luckily the police took their time on this one. This happens so much more than people know.
