Great show

Fact based and informative.

PaulCombeta ,

I can’t stop talking about Police Unions!

If you’re confused why police are allowed to keep their jobs even after clear, unambiguous murder caught on tape; this will not only answer that, but tell you what you can do it about it. I truly believe the contents of this podcast contain the answer to desperately needed police reform.

gfgfhjjgfcvh ,

Factual.

Negative reviews are either incoherent or angry at the content of the podcast.

The production is high quality, the guests are experts in their fields, and the conversations are ALL fact-based and research-centric. I’m learning a ton of indisputable information about the topic.

I would say this podcast is 95% facts on police unions and accountability and 5% dramatic/emotional individual stories of persons who’ve suffered/died from police negligence.

Also, I’m a liberal snowflake. I know for a fact that if you are a Blue Lives Matter person this show will trigger you as much, if not more, than those of us who want to see police reform. And yet, facts are facts. You’ve been warned.
