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. 🙄

Thank you thank you thank you. I am a white female. I have been subject to the bully shittery of the Justice system for almost 10 years. I am not from clevland. I think this is a nation wide problem that definitely needs delt with. I love the ending of this season, Sarah pionts to everyone involved, and says we all are responsible to do something about it.

I live 40 miles east of Cleveland and hearing all of this has been truly heartbreaking and completely disgusting. I can't believe how terrible the crimes are that go unreported and how crooked most of our cops and judicial system have become. so very sad, all around

As a British white guy living in the UK I'm a bit shocked as how unfair the system seems to be in Cleveland, it seems the system unfairly penalises the poor with these multiple misdemeanors.

Paul Coulthard yes, that is exactly what is happening across the US. I have personally witnessed this kind of bull shittery in my town of Guthrie Oklahoma. it's not just Cleveland

Ouch. This one really hurts to listen to. Ugh. S/O to Sarah for giving us this experience. I can only imagine how hard it must have been.

How interesting the very stark differences between the comments made by white people and comments made by black people on these episodes. What a PRIVILEGE it must be for these white folks to sit on their high horses and not have to empathize cause none of this effects them.

Joe Young That's bullshit and a total abdication of responsibility. Some people are beyond saving, sure, but most are not. Speaking from personal experience here.

Tatyonna Jordan "Calling out" people does nothing but reinforce their beliefs.

there is one absolute sure way to not have to deal with all this - don't break the law!!! They always start with "he didn't really do anything" only to follow up with a list of actions the vast majority of us would never even consider doing. It really is as simple as follow the law.

Greg Neumann If you knew how untrue and naïve that statement is, you wouldn't have said it.

Greg Neumann this entire series about examining the institutional policies that perpetuate a system of inequalities, racism, and oppression. this includes inequalities of general access to resources, living in poor environments/neighborhoods, leading to greater chances of being stopped and frisked, involved in violence as a necessary part of ones world to protect oneself, etx... I hope that examining the process is the lens folks are having.

unfortunately, our criminal justice system preys on people like Joshua because they are easy targets that don't have the resources to challenge it.

Joshua had no business joining a gang and committing armed robberies at age 16. There's no getting around that. He dug his own grave in that regard. Having said that, he got fu**ed by the Feds. Once he gave the Feds intel on the Heartless Felons, he should have been placed in a juvenile facility far away from Cleveland where he could have quietly done his time and moved on with his life. The Feds fu**ed Joshua. No question about it.

ns520az What were his options? Both parents in jail...surrounded by others committing crimes...few positive role models...on and on. He was set up to fail in life and the criminal justice system failed him even further.

We all make mistakes and most of us pay for it one way or another.

justmydeals At the risk of being insensitive, you have more opportunity to get the help you need than he does. You are not trapped in a broken system. This is coming from a fellow victim of a violent crime.

michael palmer as a white woman who has been the victim of an armed robbery, the sympathy for this guy -- who committed three of these vicious crimes -- breaks MY heart. The aftermath of this crime keeps ME up at night, not him. He's just worried about what's happening to HIM, not his victims. Excuse me for being as selfish as he's being.
