Replace Warren Leight as Show Runner/Executive Producer on 'Law & Order: SVU'

This petition was published by Anonymous on Jan 28, 2013

We, the undersigned, call on Dick Wolf and the National Broadcasting Company (NBC) to have current 'Law & Order: SVU' show runner/executive producer Warren Leight, replaced IMMEDIATELY.

'SVU' is not only the last series in the 'Law & Order' franchise, unlike most TV dramas, it is one that helps empower victims or rape and abuse in real life, it lets them know that they can seek justice and that their rapists and attackers see the inside of a jail cell for their horrible crimes. And until 2013, the series NEVER cast an actual rapist to the series for ANY reason, this show inspires the victims, it's about the victims, and it's for the victims. And the casting of Mike Tyson is just a spit in the face to the actual victims out there who see their attackers glorified on television.

True, Mr. Tyson deserves a second chance, like anybody, but 'Law & Order: Special Victims Unit' is not the place for it. 'SVU' needs a show runner who will listen to ALL and not be picky and choosy -- and Warren Leight is not that person.

It's time to make a change, and it's time to make it TODAY.
