KC is the American Vigilante - A hugely complex, intelligent, contradictory man who could save your life but end it too. Who leads a group of violent men standing on the blurred line between right and wrong, between revenge and redemption. A man you want on your side when it all falls apart.
American Vigilante is true crime, but so much more. It’s saving abducted children, it’s stepping beyond the law. It’s rescue missions, assassination attempts and last-gasp protection. It’s all the stuff you hope never comes to you, until it does.
Former BBC Journalist Sam Walker presents this Crowd Network original. She’s been speaking to KC for months and has recorded everything he’s told her. You’ll need to listen to make your own mind up, but you might never be the same again.
It’s shocking, inspiring, frightening and thought-provoking. It’ll change how you see the world, and it might change how you move within it.  
Everyone thinks they’re safe, until they aren’t. Everyone thinks they know how they’ll react, until the darkness comes.

Unique, intriguing and (whether rightly or wrongly) heartwarming

KC is a fascinating individual and such a character. At times I felt sorry for him because he feels he has had to take on such huge moral and social responsibilities . He has incredible empathy towards those in society that he feels are being treated unfairly. He acts pro-socially in his own way. Also loved Sam and KC’s relationship development and connection. Unique and brilliant podcast ⭐️

Probably not real

I got to episode 2 and then gave up. In this episode KC states his family don’t know what he does and then precedes to tell a story about how his daughter didn’t want him to leave a family barbecue to find a little girl that had been kidnapped but when he explains the situation his daughter says for him to go and find the little girl. Therefore I concluded its not real. No doubt it’s an entertaining podcast regardless but not for me.
