Interesting that the detective develops a speech impediment the instant you ask about police on the scene. Exactly the kind of suspicious choke-up that if the roles were reversed that the detective would hone in on as an indication they've got the right suspect.

I feel for this family. We lost our daughter 2 years ago to an overdose. She was dumped ina hospital ambulance bay. Police have truck playe and all its info but wouldnt look into it. Was this a bystander helping or the person who gave her drugs and watched her die? Congrats on the strength to do this podcast

Their defensive is exactly the problem with police departments. They won't acknowledge there are bad cops. They won't acknowledge racism is a problem in the police department.

I sympathize with everything this family went through but at no point during the podcast did they recognize the ungodly number of murders the city of Chicago deals with every year. I believe that should of been mentioned for context.

Maybe they have to literally say, "The 2 shootings in BMW'S are related BECAUSE it was said by Elma's neighbor (otherwise picked out of the lineup as part of the trio in Grand Marquis) that "Courtney may have been shot in a case of mistaken identity". THAT IS WHY THEY ARE RELATED, POLICE!

These cops are assholes to her. Most cops are to everyone really. They are NEVER told they're wrong they are NEVER policed themselves, so any time they are called out they are so angry. Police lie, they are told to lie, they are trained to lie. Just like they lied when they said it's illegal to record their conversation!!!! That is our ONLY power over them and that is the ONLY way we can get the police force as a whole to change- to work for the people as they're supposed to. We need policing of the police. It's so unfortunate. It is so sad for this grieving mother.

Oh please, those cops are so full of it. There's a reason why the Chicago Police have always had such a terrible reputation, even among those who haven't been directly affected by their corruption and violence.
