Excellent

These are excellent in-depth discussions by professionals. I never worked in LE however my BA was in Experimental Psychology and MS is in Computer Science and Information Systems so i can relate to most of these discussions.

Justice but at what expense?

Thanks for the interesting podcast! Some of them are fascinating. Sometimes the sound quality is challenging to stick with.... Please don’t mess with the speed of your voice, why do you do that? Anyway, it’s nice to know that the FBI doesn’t just kill Native Americans. Lennard Peltier was most likely framed & even if not he was imprisoned for way too long. The land we live on is cursed and no law will truly be upheld until the treaty rights are honored and there is modern recompense for that, and slavery. This underpins all crime here as no law can be truly respected when the government that makes the law has made immoral laws unapologetically, and breaks its promises. & What about the FBI’s framing and illegal persecution of the Black Panther’s? Is this OK to you?
