Everyone complaining about how this is "Biased" is just revealing how out of touch they are with reality

Lousy "journalism." Aramis is named and personalized from our first encounter; "the police" isn't given a name till nearly the last sentence. We are led to infer that this cop represents them all.

This episode just is getting worse by the second! What the hell does white people "in charge" have to do with it? Maybe you should be asking why black people are not seeking these positions "of power." Where are the minority voters? Where is the increase in electable minorities with the alleged increase in minority population? Wouldn't it be expected that such an increase in minority population result in an increase in minorities in these positions?

Jeffrey Riddle All your answers are in an American history book. I And I think she was only stating facts. she was not stating judges being white like a cause for injustice in these peoples cases

Arimus HAD drugs! Currently, he was breaking the law. We can discuss how it escalated, but I think that only those who were present would/could actually know the force required to get his arms behind his back. Also, you complain that the police are talking shit when Arimus was HIMSELF! "Not an arrestable charge!?!" Who do you think you are?

I am sad that this podcast has slipped into the assumption that all police officers and judges are racist. Where is the proof of such nonsense? My assumption is that there are more white police simply because of the culture of the minority communities. Less black police officers results in merely the appearance of racism and is not necessarily the cause of the issues discussed here.

Jeffrey Riddle You're attacking a straw man. She never made this suggestion. No one did. The simple truth is this. Police have power. As much as they claim otherwise, there is an enormous power imbalance between police and civilians, and the poorer and less white you are, the worse that power imbalance gets. To not mention this is to basically be driving on a sunny day without sunglasses on: you'll miss a lot.

This whole season is so one sided and biased as hell. The previous seasons were good, but definitely leaned. This type of reporting is exactly why police and prosecutors won't talk to you. Not all the cases mentioned are defensible. Tamir Rice definitely could have been handled better, but report both sides. And 10 years for murdering a baby? Seriously? That's justice to you?

Was there a conclusion to this case? You hear the recording of the police officer beating some motorist and it turns out to be the policeman who beat up the guy outside his friends door. The guys lawyer is overjoyed and? Then what. I can't find an end to this case??? So annoyed....

OF COURSE the police won't correct themselves! To do so, they'd have to admit they were wrong in the first place. "The Thin Blue Line" came out in 1988 showing how police protect themselves. There's also a video on YouTube where a Florida news station did one of those "undercover investigations" where a person would walk into a police station and just ask what the process is to file a complaint against an officer- "can I do it anonymously? can I take a form, fill it out and bring it back?"- in most cases the person asking "what is the process" the person is bullied, threatened and stonewalled. It's called something like 'Proof cops are corrupt' or something- I was skeptical when I first clicked and absolutely disappointed and appalled the more I watched. If we don't hold police accountable for abuse of force there's absolutely NO CHANCE they'd hold themselves accountable. Good cops will be good cops regardless, bad cops will be bad cops.

Good listen but I feel that she is pretty much taking the blame off of anyone who gets arrested. His gf had a warrant so she was arrested...

wow why would anyone want to move to Cleveland if that's how the police act. yes you did not sign up to be shot at but you are there to maintain keep the peace. not go out of your way to cause it as well. You signed up for this job potentially getting hurt while on the job is to be expected. people are crazy if you dont know that beforehand you shouldn't be in that field

If the guy in the apartment block hadn't had an illegal narcotic, and didn't resist, wouldn't that have worked itself out? Even if he didn't understand why he was being arrested, in Ohio he just needed to understand he was being arrested to complete the offence of resisting. He clearly indicated he did. I'm not excusing the actions of the officers, it sounds like no-one is innocent based on the podcast, but he could have avoided it by not having the narcotic, and not resisting.

Tony Rickman Naive much. Im white and have been caught with heroin and drove away with a summons I got a cwaf on. Youre delusional if you think that was appropriate police behavior. also its standard procedure to state the arresting offense when you arent just hassling harmless civilians.

proper training by family and school, people should obey police orders like a parent or teacher.

Gabriella Arroyo No thanks. I have enough evidence here: https://www.thoughtco.com/systemic-racism-3026565 that "systemic racism" is merely a theory and has yet to be proven to exist. Maybe you should look at the fruits of racism to see if they exist. Civil rights lawsuits based on race? Where are they? Where do they exist in THIS instance? They don't and you can't say that racism was a factor in this case. Instead, a high crime rate, possession of drugs and the testimony of a criminal (possession is a crime) is all you have. When will you liberals understand that no one wants to be racist? Most of us do want crime eliminated.

Jeffrey Riddle you're really trippin on this page. i dont remember the details of the podcast anymore but i don't think I was referring to Tamir Rice when I was talking about a kid getting beaten. If you're looking for evidence of systematic racism in US police forces, instead of attacking us all in the comments, just keep listening to the podcast series with an open mind this time.

"Tamir Rice did not come from a loving home" SHAME ON YOU!! I hear a caring mother living to see the justice of her stolen son! Ms. Rice, my prayers are with you.
