The New "CSI" Effect

Some prosecutors and detectives think "CSI" and its ilk may assist and perhaps encourage criminals to try to get away with murder. Read more in Joe Milicia's story here. I wouldn't be surprised that perps are picking up pointers, but I would hope that such stories don't fuel the argument that the media folks involved are indirectly responsible for the crimes. After all, on "CSI", the bad guys also get caught.
