We had a long and heated discussion on the morality of this TV show awhile back. Here is the latest
: a court has ruled that NBC can be sued over the suicide of a former Texas prosecutor who committed suicide after he was caught by the show trying to hook up with a 13-year-old boy. The court agreed that there is merit to the lawsuit:
Rather than merely report on law enforcement's efforts to combat crime, NBC purportedly instigated and then placed itself squarely in the middle of a police operation, pushing the police to engage in tactics that were unnecessary and unwise, solely to generate more dramatic footage for a television show.
This doesn't mean that the court agrees with the suit, just that the legal action is allowed to proceed and won't be thrown out of court.
