It's crazy to hear how little records they keep or statistics they have on how the system is working and on what works to keep people from recommitting. I suppose if they did have them the institutionalised racism would be a little too obvious though.

I thought syed’s friend said they buried the body in a really shallow 6” grave. How would the body have been so hard to spot if it were in a 6” grave?

This judge has a God complex. It isn't his job to cull the population problem nor judge women for being pregnant. I can barely listen to this episode due to his rascist, mysoginistic views and how he wields his power.

The thing is that regardless of what someone may or may not have done, regardless of where they live or the color of their skin no one deserves to be beaten my those the are sworn to protect. The justice system has a responsibility to treat citizens with a calm hand. It shouldn't be a question of if the person had been in trouble before or looks shady and even if they should commit a crime it is for the court to decide a punishment not the cops or so called street justice.

hearing his guidance counselor read about his accomplishments already at his age breaks my heart if he is not guilty, which I don't think he is. think of what he could have given to society over the years as an engineer or the like, instead of what his life has been.

the lawyer is very annoying to listen to. I would be annoyed with the defense as a juror.

the phone call to nisha. Jay had the phone all day. let's assume he's setting up things timeline all day... call someone you don't know on his phone to make it seem like he was with you at a specific time

Had to skip the Bergdahl stuff. After serving 20 years in the Army myself, I'm not going to listen to a "deserter" tell me a story.

I laughed out loud at the county prosecutor's assertion that we have the best criminal justice system. Spoken like someone who knows very little about the world and has no interest in thinking outside of his little box. Keep twiddling your thumbs while the country burns, man. Must be nice in LA-la land. 🙄

Wow, Loomis looks and sounds like a caricature of a bad cop. He's so cartoonishly evil, it's almost funny. Almost.

There's a lack of personal responsibility all right... on the part of this reprehensible judge!

ABR I totally agree! It seems so high-handed of the judge and he seems to pontificate on issues that have zero to do with the case or defendant in front of him. I would have a hard time keeping indignancy from boiling over if I was in his court room.

If the system worked, the people who assaulted Anna would have been charged and convicted. So maybe things could have gone worse for Anna, but they certainly didn't work out overall.

Whether or this man is a criminal and whether or not they glassed over his criminal al history. The fact remains is that the police here have treated at least 2 individuals as if they don't have basic human rights. Hell, the ASPCA gets upset when we treat animals like this.
