Unless you have been declared by a court as his legal guardian, YOU can't sue anyone. If you have, you NEED an attorney just to determine IS you have the proverbial snowball's chance in the lake of fire of succeeding in a lawsuit.

Update: I just read your ABSURD claim the FIVE cars responded to calls about him yelling. There is NO WAY that happened unless he has a DOCUMENTED history of EXTREME violence. Your story was REMOTELY plausible before the PURE BS.

you need an attorney. and I suspect that since the episode happened in ordinary public view and that since arrest and jail records are public, you're not likely to win

Talk to an attorney. I hope you have a good chunk of money for a retainer.

How does any of that forgive his behavior?

Some adult in your family gave written permission to the TV crew to do that. Look around and ask. Blame them, not the PD or the TV crew.

Are TV shows like Live PD allowed to film people without their permission?

There are many circumstances where people are “newsworthy” and are allowed to be filmed with out permission. Example: Being detained by police gives you rights not to be filmed. As soon as you start to fight the police … you instantly lose the right.

But these legal questions have been worked out over the years and studios abide by them

YOU? No you can't sue, nothing has been done to you.

Your brother might be able to.

If no releases were signed then your brother probably could sue the show's producers.

Yahoo Answers legal advice is worth what you paid for it, with that in mind contact a lawyer and consult them in person.

Someone signed a release waiver before the filming was aired.

They can film all they want, but public broadcast mandates a release.

that little crayon eater should have known better, put him in a straight jacket an keep him in cellar

Technically, no you cannot sue. When it comes to shows like LIVE PD and Cops, thats all legally allowed to be publicized. However, since he does have a mental issue, i think you can get the episode banned, as well as consult a lawyer about suing.
