You see how people so often unwittingly allow cops to search their vehicles in situations in which they are within their legal rights to not consent to a search.
Over and over, you see how the drug laws are used to incarcerate people who aren't hurting anybody except maybe themselves. My wife didn't always agree with me about the evils of drug prohibition but, after watching all those really sad busts on Cops for a little bit of pot or coke, she changed her mind.
I wonder what kind of reaction those people would have to a show which featured cops killing people, instead of just arresting them.
Would they get the same kick? "Oh look ! Dumb fuck got shot. Guess he learned his lesson for what he was doing."

It's my belief that broadcast television has been obsolete for years now.
Why does anyone still watch, let alone pay for, the most obnoxious re-runs of commercials, interrupted sparingly by the occasional drama or news program?
Youtube and netflix have more interesting things to watch than anything I could find on 300 channels of satellite crap.

The majority continues to speak, and it says what you think is interesting is crap. Shit, you probably hardly ever even watch a youtube video that gets to six digits on the view counter. You're a freak, and much that is valued by others will almost certainly be despised by you.
