Reverse COPS

there is a reality show where a film crew stages a "suspicious" plant growing setup in a residential house so that the local cops will use illegal techniques to detect it and then raid the house without legal precedent.  said film crew is waiting inside with a lawyer and cameras to bust them. 

i am imagining this show, Kopbusters, will not last very long... but it is about time someone started trying to police how out of control home raids have become.  good story at Boing Boing about the show with links included... 

Kopbusters- reality show that busts cops for conducting illegal drug raids

on that note, a bizarre story from the UK: Cops raid house because flowers smelled like pot
