whats up with all the missing audio? I keep thinking its a streaming error, but no, I can go back and the time is just missing. fantastic reporting, the first season was very interesting, although kinda felt repetitious by the last couple episodes until getting to the statistics of solved cases, but anyhow, very good and very dark material. listening to the last couple guys was quite disturbing. I'm halfway through second now, and the reporting seems to have matured even more since the first, but I dont find the material as compelling, just as a case anyways.

I would love to hear y'all investigate the case of the kidnapped women in Ohio by a man named Ariel Castro (sp?). I can't even begin to imagine how he was able to get away with it for so long.

I guess I'm wondering... we can agree that Curtis Flowers did not commit this crime, but someone did. Has the defense done anything to investigate and find the real killer?

Kymmjellybean It's not the job of the defense to find the real killer. That is the job of cops and prosecutors. If they put away their egos and actually cared about justice, they'd do their jobs instead of rail roading this person.

Its painful to listen to how incompetent the law enforcement was in that area at investigating and protecting children from that predator.

these people think someone, a sane person would get so angry to kill 4 people after only working for the company for 3days? and not having any criminal background? I knew he was innocent when they said this was the motive. it's completely insane.

Pedophiles lost their right for privacy in this matter. They wouldn't be on the list if they hadn't done such a disgusting act in the first place. I say put their face on billboards so that children know to stay clear and parents can protect their children in today's times.

so I have a question. do you believe that the case of Curtis Jackson and Steven Avery have a similar undertone that once the law has put in extensive work to make someone guilty despite viable potential evidence that they could be innocent but it would be detrimental to the courts and the justice system to spend more time and energy to catch the actual guilty party?

THERE SHOULD BE A PRISON CONSEQUENCE FOR ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER/LAWYER THAT KNOWINGLY FRAMES AN INNOCENT PERSON OR ALTERS EVIDENCE.

don't just blame law enforcement. what about the people who never said anything when they saw or felt something suspicious. if they all went to the police station to report, it would have been solved easily. Don't just sit at home discussing the issue, GET up.

iM HoU While I absolutely agree with you about reporting it isn't as simple as it sounds. 1. As a victim it is absolutely overwhelming to report that someone you know has hurt you. Yes I realize in this case it was a stranger that was the offender but I am a survivor and I understand why I felt like I COULDN'T report. I am also the mom of a survivor.. We did report and despite the fact that multiple times we have been to the police about the same person and the fact that her cousin was also raped by the same person. It has torn our family apart and still we have been told multiple times that there is no evidence and because of it being my daughter's father she had to go to him every summer for 11 years with her older siblings. When she hit 14 she finally understood the situation. The reason the #MeToo movement became so big was that the pendulum has swung from a point of view that assumes victims are lying to assuming that they are telling the truth. 3. There were multiple reports about the pedophile and murderer in this case. This failure lies squarely on the shoulders of law enforcement. While I understand that computer systems were not linked to each other there was no excuse for not holding him. They launched a NATIONWIDE campaign and still fucking let the murderer walk out of their custody.

The most sad thing about these snitches...is that not only did they not get paid the money promised, but that they were willing to testify against a man who's facing death for $30,000. I guess that me personally... I have a conscience and there's no amount of money that would make me take somebody else's life especially if I didn't know if they deserved it
