Awesome show. Must listen.

And don’t read any of those so called anti cop crap reviews.

Important piece of the criminal justice puzzle

I had no idea a show like Cops existed because I haven’t watched network TV for at least 50 years. I have become interested in criminal justice reform through several podcasts and recent documentaries. I think Taberski has hit on a subtle but important piece to the CJ reform puzzle. His stories, especially in the 6th episode, and his conclusions (that the TV show is actually influencing people to become cops and also influences how law enforcement plays out in the US) is compelling. I’m glad Dan has turned his talent to this important issue. His previous podcasts have been fun and well told, but Running From Cops is socially relevant and a critical piece in understanding our broken justice system and what’s needed to fix it.
