A waste of an interesting story...

Interesting, but the interviewer is terrible. The questions asked are said in such a way that it’s almost insulting to the intelligence of the listener and the person interviewed, in particular the father of the accused. I wonder the “journalists” motives as the questions are often patronising and said with such disbelief. There seems to be an element of bias that makes for poor reporting. I would recommend looking elsewhere for information on this polarising topic.

No Black Hands

Shallow reporting lacking in-depth analysis of the facts, arguments and reasoning of the Justice system. In field interviews are one dimensional and leading questions to extract emotion and conflict...tough to listen to

What a strange review you write. Is it meant to be ironic or something clever?

During the police investigation Scott’s sister Sandy did a secret recording for the police where she asked Scott about Ben & Olivia and at the trial this recording was played to the jury. I have never been able to find this recording again but for me it was very telling and was the only time the public had heard Scott talk about the pair. Is it possible for this to be included in a future episode?
