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.

Compelling

Once I was a few episodes in, I realized KC has to be a bounty Hunter which lends a lot of credibility on his part to what he’s said. I wish there were a lot more people like him doing good works. Sam should stop being so very offended that America has the 2nd Amendment. Criminals shouldn’t be the only ones that have guns. Perhaps Sam would feel more comfortable back in the UK.

Incredible!!!

I choose to believe that KC is really what he says he is (mostly bc I know people who are like him) and I LOVE this podcast! It’s far more than entertaining- it’s also educational, emotional, FASCINATING, funny, and, sometimes, heartbreaking. Whether you believe KC’s stories are true or not, you will be on the edge of your seat through every episode!

1000% false

I have listened to this twice as of today. It is immensely entertaining and entirely made up. If you listen to the details you can see that it doesn’t add up. The Journalist does a good job warning of the uncertainty but should have come to the conclusion in the end that it is a story, albeit, a good one. What you should takeaway is there are bad people in this world, and hopefully people like KC but this isn’t a true story. Just a good storyteller…
