American Idol is about making dreams come true but on Wednesday night's show producers not only cut some dreams short but they also humiliated a contestant when they put his criminal justice history on blast. "The fact is we are not allowed to have anybody that has an outstanding warrant on the program -- and you have four of them against you," one of the producers told 25-year old Jermaine Jones. Seems like it was an obvious decision that had to be made but did they have to parade him around and broadcast his business to [17 million]( viewers?
