You be the juror.

I appreciate the approach of this podcast. They give you all the arguments I’d both the defense and the prosecution, and let you come to your conclusion. It’s good practice, considering most jurors don’t seem to understand what ‘reasonable doubt’ means.

Way too many questions!!!!

Is this the end for both cases?
The judge is dirty! So why not let the jury decide? So what’s the common denominator... hummmm

Solid Podcast

This is a solid podcast. It is slanted to examine only the widow and at times seems a bit tunnel visioned. There are also times the older men speaking sound like old town gossips which isn’t evidence. The entire case is built around conjecture and opinion. Also there is no way any of those prosecutors would have been okay with the judge deciding their case if they were the defendant. Also the biggest problem is the missing will. Who had the most to gain from that will going missing? That same person also had access to the gun. The disinherited child. That’s who I think did it.
