Great podcast

This is a well-researched podcast. Season one was slightly disorganized in the telling of the story, but season two was organized and absolutely riveting. It is a disturbing story but an important one. It shows why capital punishment is inherently unfair. Highly recommended!

Propaganda bull crap...

My original statement is no longer valid, I now give this podcast one star and if I could I would give it zero stars because they are standing up for child abductors/pedophiles rights that they do NOT deserve.
These people ruin lives (if their victim is allowed to “live” and are not murdered) and this podcast wants them to be able to go back into public and live amongst our children.

“I am only giving 3 Stars because they keep pushing a podcast called “Uncover” which is a BORING, go no where podcast which makes it annoying.

But this PC is actually really good, could have a better rating but yeah. LOL!”

Enjoyed except chapter 6

I have no sympathy for child predators/molesters. The reporter speaks with “Marcos” in chapter 6 and seems like its a chapter trying to conjure up sympathy for predators. Marcos was over 21 and trying to have sex with minors. Boohoo he got caught. Thank God for these laws and i’m thankful i can now c where the perverts are in my neighborhood and city.
The law that desperately needs changed is the statue of limitations of prosecuting these pervs. That limit of time should b eliminated and there should not be any limit of time period!!
