My favorite Friday late night show, SOCO, has now moved to Saturdays, 4pm, to reach wide viewers. It aims to solve crimes with the help of investigators and police. SOCO = Scene of the Crime Operatives is a documentary reality TV series anchored by Gus Abelgas. Some of the cases involving the convictions of the suspect were resolved because of the dna testing from the crime scene.
This kind of science testing is done for criminal and non-criminal investigations. For non-criminal case, it is used for paternity testing while for criminal case, it is done to solve a crime. While viewers of the show can be a part of solving the crime by providing information leading to the suspect, this kind of science testing made it easier for the authorities to solve the crime, even for the high profile cases.
