Anna got screwed. That sergeant was an ass hole & should never have taken her to jail. He knew what happened because that lady said what happened to her. Anna was sexually assaulted & also an officer calling her sweetheart is inappropriate. no officer should EVER call a woman sweetheart.

what a disappointment. Compelling characters and stories reduced to simple PC analysis: race and gender. The narrator never misses the opportunity to squeeze issues and conflicts into one or both of these two boxes. Tedious and predictable.

Lyle Jenish Why are people so uncomfortable with this? Race and gender are a huge part of the equation. Can you honestly say that being black in this situation would have no impact or help the individual? You can't.

Bar Fight. Thank you! My dream in life is to expose. I am a convicted felon. I have been through the system. I am from Columbus, Ohio and I see the sisterhood in the close county court systems. As a matter of fact, my fiance has been hazed by Cuyahoga county. I have recently been scared into yet ANOTHER plea bargain....except this time I caught the wrath of a bank robbery. Ever heard of 3 years probation for a crime of that Magnitude???? Ask me how you can achieve probation for ROBBING A BANK AT GUN POINT! My point exactly😢😢😢😢😢

it's so sad that you chose to try something different for season 3..... maybe cause the lack of good stories...dont know.But it seems to me that season 3 dont fit with the title 'Serial' . There is no suspense anymore and no reason for me to wanna listen to the next episode. In the last 2 season , I was craving for new episodes to arrive... but now, there is just no reason for me to listen to the next. ...

S2's basic premise: military dude gets kidnapped by Al Quaeda b/c he wanted to be the Bourne Ultimatum/Legacy/etc. I really tried to get into it... After a few episodes, I rage quit the rest of S2, lol! Onto S3. Hopefully not quite as boring. BTW, shouldn't this podcast be about serial killers?

Stan se·ri·al /ˈsirēəl/ adjective 1. consisting of, forming part of, or taking place in a series. "a serial publication" The first season wasn't about a "Serial Killer" what makes you think any other season would be about serial killers?

I'm halfway through episode one and am so upset by the female prosecutor who said "if she just stopped fighting ...." I am a supporter of the guys in blue, but as a female myself, I can understand why Anna kept fighting - she was getting beat on and regardless if she could hear the police officer or not her adrenaline was probably so high from fear that it would take a moment for that command from the officer to register. However, she was in a "fight or flight" scenario, so her brain was only thinking about staying alive! I understand the prosecutor has something to prove, but for Christ sake, choose your battles and have compassion!

I can't help but getting upset when I hear the talk about pursuing trial is an "obstructionist". This is peoples lives! Even in the first episode how broken the court system is.

Lauren Hebrank You're not supposed to feel anything. You're supposed to want a justice system that is actually just. It has nothing to do with your feelings or anyone else's.

You go to a bar, mind your own business, get sexually assaulted my multiple people, and, in a physical altercation not instigated by you, you accidentally punch a policeman. There are multiple, excellent video/audio recordings of everything that happened. Result: you're apprehended and narrowly avoid going to jail and owe >$1k to the government, and this is largely considered an example of the system working. God, sometimes I just want to see the American criminal justice system be burnt to the ground.

I worked next to the Justice Center jn Cleveland for a year as a valet. Then about another year as a clerk for an attorney where I was in the Justice Center somewhat regularly. The way she describes the building and system is astoundingly accurate.

MrJohnnypantz unfortunately criminal justice affects only a minority of people in such a direct way that they understand what is going on on the inside.

Why is playing loud music in a public and fairly formal setting a race issue? I would think it's more of a politeness issue, I'm listening to my serial with headphones, because I assume not everyone wants to hear it.
