  • A very unentertaining and frequently meaningless show.

    When I was a kid a guy in his teens liked to harass me. He liked to throw rocks at me and poke me with a long branch had broken off some dead tree. One day I let him have it. I was not even ten years old & he was not mentally ***ed. Instead of being called a 'hero' I was brow beaten for several months by several adults who worked at a school who claimed I had made an unprovoked attack on this teenage person who was Those adults were not cops. That kind of thing is around & this show is a bit like that. Real teen criminals don't care if they get yelled at. Innocent people don't appreciate getting yelled at. The real hard core is something to be feared. I find tis show means little.moreless

    They should have Charles Manson scare the bejesus out of these kids before he croaks. They should also have Phil Spector possibly do the same thing. I'd be very surprised if "Saturday Night Live" doesn't spoof this show, with Obama possibly sending his surviving predecessors into a "Scared Straight" program to confront them about their leadership failures.
  • Great show
