Capturado - Venezuela turns drug baron deportation into a TV reality show
Forget Survivor or Dancing with the Stars -- Real reality TV shows convicted drug dealers being deported on state owned TV. The first criminal on the "deportation show" promotes the deportation of Dutch drug lord Merk Anton Herman, wanted by Interpol. Scroll forward to the 5:20 mark to see the awesome scary music and some special effects, along with the vital statistics of this drug dealer.
The government had been under attack for its relatively limited amount of effort put into capturing drug traffickers, so this bit of live TV drama is probably their way of showing that they mean business.
