Ok so I’m watching this part two of the episode and I find myself getting frustrated. I feel like this episode has really crossed a line.
I think what happened to the poor boy that died that day is a super tradgedy. I also feel that this episode is wrong, setting these kids up to take a test and interrogating them infront of this boys parents and an audience.
Why is Dr. Phil suddenly a homicide detective??
Where are the parents of these kids?
Don’t these kids have a lawyer to protect them?
I could hardly stand to watch this, especially the part of Dr. Phil revealing the lie detector test results.
The whole idea of this episode makes me sick! I believe the parents of Jake do deserve a better investigation in to their sons death. This shouldn’t be around to entertain people.
The whole episode was pointed towards getting these kids confess to something. I feel like it’s unfair to everyone. How can Dr. Phil tell them he isn’t trying to incriminate themselves but at the same time set them up with a lie detector test and pushing them to admit something they “know”.
I feel so badly for the parents of Jake, I can’t imagine the pain they have for unanswered questions for their sons death.
Very frustrating. What do you think bees?

@Katrina117: It’s Dr. Phil, I went to school to be a therapist (Master’s degree) and Dr. Phil was held up as the example of what not to do. I used to watch just to see how bad it was, but I would get so angry at him that I just couldn’t stand it anymore.

Dr. Phil is a dickhead. I remember back in the day, when he first started his show, he actually gave people tools, advice and guidance.
Now he just insults people, allows them to bicker back and forth for the whole hour, throws in a few “clever” comments and that is it. He CLEARLY takes sides and spins the whole show to support whatever side he has decided to take.
I didn’t see the episode you were talking about,but I saw the previews..I can’t even watch him anymore, he just upsets me….and throw in the whole “twitter comments” segment that he adds..I want to kick the TV….

@Katrina117: I haven’t seen the episode you’re referring to, or any other for that matter, in years. I think, that Dr. Phil became a jerry springer long ago. Whatever education he received and whatever good practices he perhaps once adhered to ceased to exist about the time the ink on his tv show contract dried.

@renwoman: Yes! I can see why he would be a bad example for your profession.
@urchin: He used to be so different! I remember that! Argh! I also hate the twitter comments!!! especially when he reads the hashtags! The Worst!
