12 Hilarious Stories About People Who Believed What They Saw On Crime Shows

| Right | February 24, 2021

Dear readers,

We’ve all seen those shows where simply saying “zoom and enhance” can get the perpetrator captured before the episode is up. Crime serials can be thrilling, but they are also wildly unrealistic when it comes to what is standard procedure for real life, instead choosing to max out the drama with supercomputers, impossible image correction, and even dangerously simplified medical procedures.

We’ve rounded up twelve stories that prove shows like CSI have a lot to answer for!
