Cafe Studios presents Doing Justice, hosted by Preet Bharara. Justice is about doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reasons. And it's about making sure that no one is above the law. Doing Justice is CAFE's new narrative podcast, based on host Preet Bharara's bestselling book. In each episode Preet explores the key elements of a case from the unique perspective of the prosecutor whose job it is to grapple with urgent moral and legal questions. Should we allow an elected official to run for re-election while he’s under investigation? Can we prosecute a police officer for planning to kidnap his victims? Preet is the host of the hit podcast Stay Tuned and is the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. It is not always clear how justice works, and he is the perfect person to take us through each investigation, unravel a mystery, and ultimately show us how things can be made right again.

    God Forbid

    God Forbid

    In this third episode of Doing Justice, Preet Bharara's six-part adaptation of his bestselling book, Preet tells the disturbing story of former NYPD Officer Gilberto Valle. People who work in law enforcement learn to have a special sense of impending danger, like a little voice in our heads that goes, “God forbid.” God forbid somebody should be planning a terrible crime, and no one steps in to stop him. There have been a lot of those moments in Preet’s career. This case was one of the worst.

Very interesting!

More stories please.

This is excellent. I sure hope for future seasons.

Fascinating episodes

Looking in hindsight, these analyses are truly helpful in understanding what the law is supposed to do. It’s gotten so convoluted, it seems, and subject to tricks, performance, foppish disgusting behavior.

I can only hope that Preet et al. will present the fall of tRUmp, the kids, Barr, Stone, Flynn, Bannon, and the GOP in similar future episodes.
