    If someone you love is diagnosed with cancer you want them to get the best treatment from the best doctors. In 2013, patients in Michigan thought Farid Fata was that doctor.

From Wondery, this is the story of hundreds of patients in Michigan, a doctor, and a poisonous secret.

Wes Darkling ,

Compelling and chock full of errors

When overzealous prosecutors choose a suspect and then whittle away the evidence that doesn’t fit their narrative they can and do convict an innocent man. This is not just shoddy police work, it is an injustice. There was so much that suggested this man was not the murderer, and by shoving this man into prison, they effectively gave the criminal years to go about being free and continued offending.
We don’t want a solve rate at the expense of fair play. When will what prosecutors and cops do when they are this bad, when will that be the crime of the century? When will we lock them up and take away their rights when their professional behavior is so egregious?
