    Wrongful Conviction with Jason Flom - Jamal Trulove

    S11E12: Jamal Trulove - In the summer of 2007, Jamal Trulove was an aspiring rapper from San Francisco’s Sunnydale projects. He had hoped that scoring himself a role on a reality television show would help his music career. Instead, his appearance on television would help police pin a July 27 murder on him. Over 30 witnesses, including Jamal himself, would not snitch, but someone had to go down for it. His most momentous mention on television yet would occur during the 2020 Democratic Primary debate.

    Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science - Bite Mark Evidence

    Introducing Josh Dubin, civil rights and criminal defense attorney, and Innocence Ambassador to the Innocence Project in New York. On the debut episode of Wrongful Conviction: Junk Science, Josh explores bite mark evidence.

    Like other forms of junk science used in criminal trials, bite mark evidence does not benefit crime victims or their loved ones. So why is it treated like credible science?

    It turns out that the charade of bite mark evidence is actually older than the United States.

Today’s episode was incredible

After hearing and listening very closely to today’s episode, I came away with two questions. Why and who are they protecting the police I mean who are they protecting? And what did they have against this woman that was a victim.? If she’s such a high-ranking individual in the community why would they handpick jurors that I did not have her best interest at heart? Are they punishing her for something or punishing her husband‘s business or the husband? I would think that if she was such an asset to the community which everybody is that you would want the right person caught for the crime. Because she may be sleeping well thinking this man is in jail but the real perpetrator is out and probably doing it to other people. Just blows my mind. That’s all I have to say about that. Thank you again for bringing this to our attention.

Thank you for awaking me

These stories leave you so gutted yet you give me the opportunity to do something (anything) by writing governors, judges etc.. I pray for all of you fighting this fight.

Eye opening

Not sure how I stumbled upon this podcast but I’m a true fan. I’ve learned a lot of new information regarding out justice system and how real life this can be for some families. I love this podcast, but I wasn’t a fan of the false confession series.
