You let them off the Hook

I really liked the podcast until episode 7. At this point in the story one high profile person has been sentenced to just 14 days in jail. This would have and should have been the episode to analyze the inequality and racism in the justice system. There is ample evidence and cases that could have been used to illustrate this phenomenon. Instead, episode 7 spent the majority of the show explaining how Singer is a con man who played upon the fears of these poor exceedingly wealthy people. We all know nothing could be further from the truth. I have no sympathy for rich people rigging the system in their favor. What this podcast could and should be about is to give details on what real gangers do. Commit horrendous crimes and barely get punished. You guys blew on this episode but you can still get it right and make a show that can really educate people.
