In 1980, a sixteen year old white girl named Cheryl Dee Fergeson was raped and murdered in a high school auditorium in Conroe, Texas. Suspicion immediately fell on the only black janitor, though three other white janitors were present. A Texas Ranger looked Clarence Brandley in the face and said “One of you is gonna hang for this. Since you’re the ni**er, you’re elected”. What followed was more than just a miscarriage of justice. The police, prosecutor and three judges colluded to frame Clarence Brandley with nothing but pure racism in their hearts.

In October of 2001, Traci Cooper was brutally murdered by her abusive ex-boyfriend, Alan Ruff. He went on trial an unprecedented eight times before he was finally convicted. Some were mistrials due to technicalities. Others were hung juries, usually split down racial lines. Traci was white and Alan is African American. Was justice finally served? Is it right to try a man eight times? Would a white man have faced eight trials?

In 2003, eighteen year old freshman, Katie Autry, was raped, beaten and set on fire in her dorm room at Western Kentucky University. Two suspects would soon emerge. One white, from a wealthy family. The other mixed race, from a poor family. The case would consume WKU, Bowling Green and the rest of Kentucky, with loyalties on both sides. To this day, many locals believe that one of those boys got away with murder.

to start off. I really enjoy this podcast. binge listening to all the episodes. is there any possible way to volume control the advertisements? I'm agree with them being there. but I have to crank your podcast to hear it properly, then screaming in 6 times louder then the podcast is the ads. I'm trying to get in the habit to turn down, but I do forget and it scares the crap out of me. just a suggestion if possible. thanks for a great listen
