1. Getting away with a crime in a poor neighborhood when drugs are involved is way easier than shows like CSI would have one believe.
2. If one does not get away with a crime under these circumstances, it is often because of sheer stupidity.
3. This idea that anyone can be a target of random murder is also highly exaggerated by tv shows. Not that it's impossible that someone you've never met nor seen could jump out of the bushes and attack you, it's just extremely unlikely.
4. A lot of crimes are solved because of crimestoppers' tips and not detective brilliance. So that means luck.
5. Often I feel that first degree murder is too harsh a sentence, especially for young Black males (since 90 percent of the time they are the demographic charged.) I guess that's why I would make a horrible cop, lawyer, juror, or judge. I am just too willing to believe/have too much empathy for their stories.
6. Whatever happened to the right to an attorney?!!! Hardly anyone invokes this right. I guess that's also why I would be a horrible investigator- the outright lies they tell the suspects to get confessions make me pretty bilious.
Okay, those are my observations... for now.... I still have about 90 episodes on Netflix to go, ha ha.
Soon to come, as soon as I feel like writing it, "To Pre or Not to Pre: What's the Deal With Pre-School?!!!!"
