Video of Bank Robbery Chase
My question is this. Do you think there is any value in showing things like car chases or crime scenes live on TV? The TV networks argue that covering car chases live helps in keeping people safe because it allows them to know what is going on as it is happening. I would personally say that while covering what is happening is good, showing it live can put more people at risk then keep them safe. Take the bank robbery for instance, if they hadn't shown the chase live on TV I'm betting half the people you see scrambling for money would have never known what was going on, or in the case of them using a delay would be going out after the pursuit already passed them, thus minimizing the risks to civilians.
