Law(n) and Order: SVU (Sod Victims Unit)

"In the criminal justice system, lawn-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious waterings are members of an elite squad known as the Sod Victims Unit. These are their stories." DUN DUN

There was no body dump or AMBER Alert on a missing earthworm* to justify the crime scene treatment. Yet this carefully tended plot of land has been under investigation since it first sprouted up this spring.

Perhaps crime scene tape is the city equivalent to old men yelling "Hey, you kids. Get off my lawn!"

I know, non-New Yorkers might not think this qualifies as a "lawn." But trust me, this is prime real estate. I'm amazed they haven't turned it into a garden.


*A "puce alert" seems to more accurately convey the appropriate color.


  1. How can I watch Law n Order SVU if I Missed it?
    I missed the new episode and it was one I really wanted to watch. Does anyone know if there's anywhere online I can watch it?
