Shocking behavior by local and state officials

This story is well told, but it is an infuriating look into a justice system that could care less about true justice. From the judge to prosecutors to local cops who couldn’t be bothered, man does this make me depressed for our country.

Intolerable

It’s difficult to listen to a podcast with such a negative slant, and so much weight given to someone’s feelings.

They infer a lack of physical evidence in the car means that the convicted was not guilty....

These hosts should do themselves a favor and present the facts of the case. The facts of their investigation. Show the holes they find, but don’t disparage people saying “the DA later went on to become a BOAT SALESMAN” as if that’s an unnoble profession. Podcasts done in this vane are so much better crafted when it’s done with no bias and professionalism.
