Such an amazing podcast. It seems unimaginable that this could happen. I hope that your coverage can make a difference to Curtis and his family and that those people in public office who have clearly broken the law are made to pay for their terrible, racist, discriminatory behaviour.

This podcast is wonderful. Thank you so much for the investigating on behalf of Curtis. Doug Evans..... rot in hell!!! What a sorry white man you are. You are the reason we as white people are hated by blacks. Please know that you will reap what you sow. Curtis.... God bless you and your family. I loved the singing of you and your dad!

I feel like most people angry with this episode didn't listen to it carefully. Not everyone on the Sex offenders database are child molesters or real Sex offenders. No one is defending pedophiles. It just wants to show how the system fails to do anything effective against them. Before getting angry, listen carefully.

Is there anyway that we can get the DA changed through a petition? This case is obviously been found guilty because of race... Good Luck Mr Flowers!

Richard Ruper race clearly plays a role in this case, although I'm not sure Curtis was targeted solely because of his race. I don't think he is guilty but he had a motive (being fired) so I think that's why Evans went after him. in Evans twisted mind he might truly believe flowers did it. There are many other documentaries and podcasts of clearly innocent white people being screwed by the system so it's not just a black problem. Breakdown season one podcast is just one example. Flowers had motive so he was the target in a case that had to be solved no matter what. Evans should be locked up for life.

I enjoyed your podcast so much. you explained everything in such detail. and at times you made me feel like I was right there with you. as I heard the case I wondered about how the justice system in the states can make a murderer out someone who has no evidence to indicate that he committed the act. but part of me also thinks that the prosecution has a dug a whole for themselves so deep that there is no way they will retract. they have already started down a path of six trials where they have convicted this man. backtracking now may not be actionable. your podcast and journalism was captivating from start to finish. Wonderful job!

It seems foolish to think that the sheriffs office would be better as an appointed office instead of elected. I can't see the decision being taken from the hands of the many and left to the hands of very few. Unless you oddly think that a few county board members are somehow gifted with more intelligence than the people who elect them or are infallible. The valuable service you provide by bringing the absolute and total criminal incompetence of the sheriff's office in this case, is what we have always depended on. Investigative reporting to bring to the populace. Knowledge to make these decisions can be the catalyst in great change. You can remove a sheriff from office for gross incompetence just like any government official. Having to go through multiple elected officials to do it increases the risk of corruption and keeping someone in the office, not the reverse. Keep up the fantastic reporting, I very much enjoy your show.

this podcast makes me feel deeply in so many ways, one of which is a strong feeling of anger towards these clearly incompetent people being allowed to practice law and stand as jurors. so frustrating. I'm just deeply, deeply sad and heartbroken for Curtis, who has to sit through time and again, unable to stand up for himself in any way or manner. my heart goes out to him and his family, who are going through heart-wrenching times they do not at all deserve.

A detective told me that if you are ever accused of a crime to hire a private investigator. They have so many cases too many cases to handle things are not done properly.
