Drug Intervention: Should Documentary Film Makers Report the Crimes They Witness?

Question by rabble rouser: Should documentary film makers report the crimes they witness?
More specifically: When TV shows like “Intervention” and documentaries about drugs are being filmed, why do the film makers get to destroy people’s chance at anonymous recovery and not be held accountable for what they have been a part of?

Best answer:

Answer by vietlawyer
The “film-maker” must not incite or assist the person commit the crime. If so, depending on the situation, he can be charged with assessory or conspiracy. If he does not assist or incite someone, then he has NO obligation to report a crime. Most jurisdictions do not require a person to report a crime, unless he is part of the organization and wants to refute from committing that crime or being charge as a conspirator. Therefore, film makers do not have to report unless, as I said, incite or assist someone to ocmmit the crime. That was why the 3 dummies who filmed drunks fighting and beating each others were charged with criminal conspiracy.
