There is some intense chatter going on around the VOF water-cooler regarding a true crime story scheduled to air on the Investigation Discovery (ID) network this week. During the conversations, several folks mentioned how much can be learned from watching crime stories on ID. One person hinted how viewers can learn to be more alert and on the look-out for certain specific events that normal civilians might not perceive as threatening. It was also said that the crime show will generally reveal real statistics and probabilities to educate their audience on how to prevent an attack.
