A dubious reality show on Swedish TV

A new programme entitled Inlåst (Locked in) has started on the private Swedish television channel TV4. The show brings juvenile delinquents together with so-called mentors, who themselves were once criminals. The whole thing's completely wrong, write seven experts in the daily Göteborgs-Posten: "The head of programming at TV4 has repeatedly said that at least her channel is doing something. In other words she thinks a method considered detrimental by the social welfare office is better than nothing at all. We are of a different opinion. We believe youth crime is far too serious a matter to go against one's better judgement and fly in the face of research by experimenting on young people and calling it TV entertainment."
