‘Lessons that the police state wants you to watch and absorb’
The writer is describing ‘CSI’ which I don’t watch but this also describes why I like ‘Law & Order’ less now. (That and the opening scenes, I understand like ‘CSI’, have been turned into music videos.) It’s like a middle-class version of ‘Cops’; watch the police push people around especially if the latter try to use their rights:
...federally empowered characters threatening recalcitrant individuals — if you ‘lawyer up’ these days on TV, it’s accepted as proof that you’re guilty, and if you mention the Constitution, you’re some kind of neofascistic cultist — with the Patriot Act, DHS and ‘Gitmo.’”
From Rational Review.
