This story makes me so angry. Not just at the rapist but the total utter incompetence of American police departments and their absurd bias towards women stemming from a male dominated work culture. Fire those cops, fire them all and parade their abysmal record all over the internet so no one will ever forget what they did and will never hire them again. I want their kids to be reminded of what their father did every time they go up on the internet and be ashamed of being related to him for the rest of their life.

Thanks for finally raising awareness to what's going on in brazil. Please keep doing it, please go through all the scandals and what was revealed in the recent leaks of public prosecutors and judges messages. The Intercept BR lead by Glen Greenwald is doing an amazing job along with others unveiling one of the biggest corruption scandals in our judiciary.

It's like yelling "but Hillary" because you can't defend him. The bottom line is that you can't defend him.

The Real Skynny Podcast

this Podcast is yet another example of the Liberal Democrats & their BULLSHIT! THE SQUAD by the way are racist & they've proven it. if you are white, straight, Jewish, Republican or conservative or even a man, they openly hate you, but amazingly none of you say anything about that! If you can't see where you are wrong folks then you are certainly part of the problem & ya'll can't say you're not racist if you only ever condone them & further drive the division. Omar is a hateful racist person & we don't need that in Congress period!!!!

I'm so hurt over this. I want to apologize to people of color for how they've been treated and how they must be feeling. And I want the rest of the world to know that we don't all support Trump. Such scary times! I am overwhelmed and sad and feeling hopeless.

Andi-Roo Libecap Stay strong. As a non American, we know the electoral college and gerrymandering has gutted your democracy.

I can't help but feel that this is the end for us. For the US, anyway.

Eric Larsen I still have hope. hopefully this will turn off the general electorate in 2020 although this is really far out. this white nationalism we're seeing is a cry for attention because society is changing and becoming more inclusive. they're scared how much is changing and I'm optimistic that despite this dark time we'll progress just like we always have. unfortunately we have to drag these people kicking and screaming but too bad for them.

I used to like this show a lot but over time it has lost its ability to bring up interesting topics. Whenever listening the only thing that i hear is the electric toothbrush ad. I think this podcast has become a better advertiser for the toothbrush than a good discussion platform.

This is an idiotic analysis because you have just ignored the restrained manner in which Mueller operates and expresses himself and therefore makes false deductions about his reasoning. He clearly is not a millennial New Yorker and should never have been evaluated out of context. This was irresponsible.

It is important to evaluate, not just what Mueller did say today, but the climate or context for doing so. It seemed evident that making a public statement within in the DOJ and in effect, counteracting what his superior, Barr has stated was in itself a loud rebuke.
