One of my favorite shows is Law and Order: SVU. It’s a hard hitting show that explores the depravity of the human conditions and the police officers who do their best to rid the world of the lowest of the low scum. With memorable characters such as Detective Elliot Stabler and Detective Olivia Benson, who go the extra thousand mile to get the perp put behind bars. Then, when they trap the perp, now they have to work with the DA’s office to make sure all the evidence they obtain is presented in court so justice can be served. An important fact that the show taught me though is that if you’re guilty, pray for a really bad prosecutor or pay well for a good defense attorney.
What is important to note in shows like Law and Order, CSI, and others, is the evidence. What does the evidence say? And where does it lead? Part of the problem in today’s society is that people are swayed by popular opinion, or emotional connection instead of weighing the evidence and following that evidence wherever it leads. Even it the evidence smacks dead against how we feel or what we want to believe.
