Informative and interesting 👌

Very well done! I’ve been of the belief that the way that the police system is set up is horribly wrong. Our government is setting people up to fail and allowing tyrants to abuse their power over the public. I hope shows like this continue to shed light on such a serious issue in our country.

What happeened??

I thought this was a well done podcast and took a unique look at true crime. However, I guess this show is no more. No shows or even updates since 12/24 of last year (2021). I recently unsubscribed.

Intriguing

For such a current issue this is a relevant and intriguing podcast. It is neutral and shares the facts in a respectful manner.
