Meth

Recently I’ve been reflecting on why I like certain TV shows that make a spectacle of being poor, or criminal or addicted to drugs.  Some examples:

  • Cops
  • Gangland
  • America’s Scariest Police Chases
  • Locked Up: Inside America’s prisons
  • Forensic Files

I think to some extent it’s to discourage myself from doing these things.  But there’s probably also a lack of empathy, because if I was really empathizing, they would be very uncomfortable to watch.
