Investigation Discovery, Discovery Channel
Encouraging violation of the law

Complaint / review text:
I just watched an episode of "Blood, Lies & Alibis" regarding a family consisting of an elderly, disabled woman, her son and her granddaughter/his niece who were the heads of an atheist organization based in Austin, Texas. The family was kidnapped, robbed and murdered. During the show, FBI agent Donna Cowling felt the need to express her personal views regarding the organization's goal of encouraging the government to uphold the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Ms. Cowling disagreed with this goal, despite her role as a law enforcement officer and her pledge to uphold the laws of the United States (which includes the Constitution), though she admitted at the end of the show that despite their heathen views, the family "still didn't deserve to die." REALLY!?! I am so sick of this sort of intolerance being tolerated!!! I am quite sure that had this been a family in a Christian organization and had the views expressed by an FBI agent been degrading towards Christianity, ID Discovery would have edited the agent's comments out of show. Worse, it is an FBI agent's job to uphold the laws of this country, and, like it or not, the Constitution is the pinnacle of United States' law. Why is she still an agent if she publicly denounces the law in her capacity as an agent? Why is this channel encouraging her behavior?

All our family & friends are fed up with "most" of your ID episodes. It's becoming dragged out as if it's a TV Series or Reality Show. Then some shows like DEADLINE & several others, you put music over Interviews, talking etc..that you can't hear what they're saying. Ridiculous. The stories as FACT are good so Producers don't have to dramatize it to the point you drive people like us away...We have family in the Media that can't even watch it anymore. They start watching "oxygen" station that have better "to the point" stories without putting all the loud music, dragged out actors performing to fill in your time of 1 hour. OXYGEN has better Shows like Snapped and much more with REAL PEOPLE interviewed most of the time & not dragged out boring. Your ID should leave well enough alone that made your station successful in the beginning until your "over the wall" Marketing actually pushed many Viewers away. .. Don't touch what made you successful in the beginning. You're station is "overkill".

Hey IDHD when are you going to start showing new episodes of your shows. You keep showing the same tv shows, reruns, reruns and more reruns all the time. If you are not going to post new material then it may be best to advise your viewers as I suspect you will lose many of us. How about you start showing new shows instead of the same old reruns all the time.........not sure why this channel even exists now since there isn't any new material. I love IDHD and want to see new shows, series etc.......new stuff please.
