The terrifying reality of the American legal system.

I have just finished listening to the third season of Serial and found myself shocked, angered and terrified on the day to day running of Clevelands police farce, court and prison systems. Broken is an understatement and it resonates throughout this podcast as you hear story after story of often the poorest people in society treated horrendously by the law enforcement community who hand down un deserved beatings, which go un punished, Judges that dish out sentences that vastly out-way the crime and a system that protects and rewards brutality on and off the street by its police force. And to hear the system believes its one of the best in the world is hilarious! Great listening, even though it’s completely disturbing.

Addictive!

I love this show. I really like the way it’s produced and presented. Despite the in-depth information provided, I still find myself hungry for more.
Great work, please keep producing this podcast!!
