Sad!!!!!

We need criminal justice reform.
This can’t keep happening on any level. It’s happening to everyone but much more to minorities and lower income individuals.

Losing your freedom is the worst thing that can happen to anyone it’s like being a erased from your life but you’re still alive.

I hope he can get on with his life. I know it will be very hard.

He’s so fortunate to have such a great wife and mother for his kids. She did such a great job with their kids.

NYS should PAY dearly for this.

Was Decent until Lester Holt did Prison Reform

The 13 alibis story was decent and caught my attention. However, the moment the incompetent Lester Holt posted two episodes on prison reform I completely lost it and unsubscribed. L.H. had the audacity to bring in Loretta Lynch to talk about reform and helping people when we all know how crocked she was with Hilary and the infamous tarmac meeting with Bill. Plus, they talk like prisons are only for blacks and then they said women should NEVER go to prison because they’re parents! 🤣🤣🤣. That happens to be the most ignorant thing I’ve heard today. Maybe this year. Dads are parents too. The issue they are not mentioning are the victim impacts. They brought one guy in each episode, but L.H. is pleading for a man to let a man who killed a woman out while stealing a car because he’s a parent. What about the woman that he killed? What about her child? I’m not saying I’m against prison reform, because I’m not. I’m part of the ripple effect with several members of my family being in prison. Also my dad was in most of me growing up, so I’m not against it. But to bring prison reform through this spectrum is not only impartial, but cognitively dishonest. I only rated because of the crap this podcast is now putting out.

Hooked Since the Intro

My heart is breaking more and more with every episode. Thanks for shedding light on situations like this! It really helps show people how lazy police officers can be and how broken our system is.
