Anyone else watch shows like Law and Order, CSI, Cold Case, NCIS, Bones, etc and look for them using improper police work or laughably accurate science? I tend to do this a lot with L&O. I just watched the SVU episode "911". In it a little girl calls 911 and has been held hostage by a pedophile. Det. Benson talks to her. The cops can't track the phone because of some high tech device that makes the signal appear in a different place. Well at the end they finally manage to figure out where she is after the pedophile found the girl with the phone. Well they figure out she is in an electronics store across from a burnt down burger joint. They are waiting for the warrant when Benson notices a man fitting the vague description given by the girl (Brown hair, silver glasses in blue case) and stops his car. He is then ripped out of his car and tossed on the hood. She and Finn search it (illegal search?) then when they find nothing they smash their way into the electronics store and find the room the girl was in only she is not there. She questions the man. When he doesn't give the answers she wants to hear she tosses him an the bed and has him by the throat (assault). He says he wants a lawyer. She lets go. a moment later she notices dirt on his shoes and grabs one off his foot (again illegal obtaining of evidence). She [in a kinda madness] scoops the dirt into a pile and says they will use the dirt to find the girl and tries to get him to confess. He kinda lunges for the dirt or to escape and she elbows him in the face (Assault or self defense?). Then Finn finds a tiny piece of charred wood deduces the girl is buried in the lot across the street. Cop cars smash down the fence (Destruction of property, and illegal search of premises (Warrant wasn't for lot too). They dig and find the costumes (more illegally obtained evidence) he made the girl wear and the girl who with a quick CPR is alive. So all in all the girl is alive, but all the evidence seized is now unusable due to crappy police work. Any cop members out there that can confirm my legal proceedings? Also gotta love when they enhance a picture from 300 yards away, take a small pixelated area and enhance it to a high def picture of a license plate. anyone else notice stuff like this?
