There are hardly any White criminals highlighted on these shows. The rationale is that the producers concentrate on predominately Black communities. Then, why do they CHOOSE to go into mainly Black communities?

Because that is where the concentration of crime is! AAs commit over 52% of the Murders in this country , even though they are only 12.8 % of the population. An inner city Homicide Detective need only wait a day or two for a murder to take place in the inner city.

Contrast that with all the small communities in the U.S. or in the suburbs of major cities you would have to wait weeks and months or years to see a Homicide.

Recently, they started showing more crime in caucasian neighborhoods. They murder people too.

Crime is NOT a black problem. The poorer the neighborhood the more crime.

I agree. I wasn't trying to say that it was just a black problem. Whites and Hispanics commit there share as well. I just saw a couple of episodes of the First 48 here in Tucson where I live and the victims and offenders here are majority Hispanic, but they showed a White getting taken down for murder on an episode. I saw a couple of weeks ago a White guy from Dallas get taken down as well for murder.

The very first episode i ever saw in Detroit , a white guy murdered a white guy and a black girl. The shows highlight Homicide Detectives, White , Black, Hispanics, etc... And they are all very good at what they do. That's why I watch it when I do.

Not really.

I think the reason that The First 48 Hours seems to air more crime involving black suspects is because many of those crimes are easy to solve. Usually, they get solved in the first 48 hours, because the defendants are without legal counsel and don't know their rights.

Not surprised; I've watched these shows once or twice. Not surprised though, I used to feel the same way about "Cops"; I hate that TV show too.

LOL, who are trying to kid? Every suspect is read his or her Rights, before any interrogations begin and are asked if they understand their rights.

Are you implying that inner city blacks are stupid and don't know the system enough to not know the difference? I have seen many times on that show where they tell the Cops
that they reserve the right to remain silent and request a Lawyer and Counsel.

Dude, people in the hood are not stupid and they know their rights more than most people do. lol

These programs are about homicide and the investigation that follows. They film in the locations where they are most likely to occur.

If making a program about , say , Bigfoot , you'd probably film in Washington state. A program about cod fishing would probably be shot in the Atlantic off the New England coast. The places most likely to produce the subject of the show.

These programs don't make Blacks look bad. Inner-city , homicidal young Black thugs make Blacks look bad.

Yea I noticed that also and that's probably why I don't like either shows.

It's just always about some minority(mostly black males) being murdered or being murderers.

I can recall one case where the murderer was a hispanic man.

I believe you can blame the film makers who seems to participate in murder when the film maker is just an observer. They are purely cataloging what actually occurs in the inner cities of our nation.

Unless of course you could show that the film makers are choosing to disregard the white murderers in favor of featuring black murderers. I believe the opposite would be true. The film maker would much rather show white murder investigations as the white murder usually involves a whole lot more then the MO of 'he 'dissed me so I shot him'.

I think that The First 48 is an important documentation of what actually occurs in our nations cities. It serves as a warning to nieve outsiders that our cities are dangerous places that good people can live without. To me, the lesson here is: Smart black people get out of the city if they want to live well and long.

I didn't say anyone was stupid. YOU implied that.

It is true, however, that many people (not just in the hood) don't know what their rights are. One perfect example is when suspects allow police to search their vehicles without probably cause. No, they just don't know their rights, and statistics prove this.

I have watched the programmes and i would say its a very racist programme.It gives the impression tht its only blks in the US who commit crimes and sometimes ppl who live outside the US and watch these programmes would fall for this bs.They have switched to showing crimes commited in the latino community in the FIRST 48 programme but they are yet to show crimes commited by caucasians in this programme.Its a racist show.

I hate to sound paranoid, but I think that maybe the sole purpose of producing the show is to promote a racist agenda. You can no more trust so-called liberal Hollywood than the conservative end. So many people in this country are lemmings and refuse to think for themselves; easily led. That's why shows like this are dangerous.

Well the problem is, is if the film crews were to go to places such as Boise Idaho, they would be waiting around forever, waiting for a homicide. They go to high crime places, such as, Dallas, Memphis, Detroit, Miami, etc.

The show just reinforces negative stereotpes of AA for the most part...they could go to boston and ny nj and get plenty of action..but the crooks on their are ignorant for speaking to the cops anyhow w/o legal counsel.Ive seen plenty of shows where they could have gotten free(not that I hope they would) ..If they knew someting about the law

THE FIRST 48 - For homicide detectives, the clock starts ticking the moment they are called. Their chance of solving a case is cut in half if they don't get a lead in THE FIRST 48™. Each passing hour gives suspects more time to flee, witnesses more time to forget what they saw, and crucial evidence more time to be lost forever.

I don't care anymore! If Criminal Black Men did not commit crimes. Then we would not see them. I mean, expose the criminals so people can be aware and get them off the streets. So Black Men and Women can be safe!

The crimes they commit are senseless and it does'nt make any sense.

And they have shows.. showing crimes that whites commit. They have....

20/20
Dateline
60 minutes
Cops
Snapped
Captured
Body Of Evidence
Investigative Reports
City Confidential
American Justice
Autopsy
Infamous Murders.......And more!

If you have cable all you have to do is browse your channels........

It should'nt matter what color they are.....but they are all criminals. And they need to be taken off the streets white or black.
