Step up and do something other than marching and having slogans. Only if its against each other though. Only speak up if its crimes against each other. Not if it's a cop beating you

The whole "no snitching" culture is so destructive.

Sometimes Sarah just get to sweet with the defenders and puts down or criticise the police or the judges for their supposed "racist remarks".. "I like Devon..." she says. She giggles, and laughs at his cynical statements about not being sorry or feeling sorry for any of the people he may have hurt in the past. How can you like a guy that has no remorse of the crimes he has committed and talks about stealing from teachers and others like he is talking about going to the movies? More black people died on the hands of black people than police or any other race. They are their worse enemies. And yes, they should worry more about working on educating their kids and managing their social inadequacy instead of blaming everybody else for all their problems. Is not about skin color is about how you build an honest life and pass example to your kids. I love this postcast for all the work you guys put in it.

Ana Vidal-Guardia ...what does this have to do with the CASE AT HAND? I feel like most of the commenters here have no idea how the criminal justice system is SUPPOSED to work. Regardless of Devon's past, this shouldn't make him a suspect when the evidence isn't there. Even if he is a shitty person who's probably a sociopath (or shaped by a difficult home/community life in a very tough part of town) that doesn't mean he should be cast as the perpetrator of this heinous crime if the EVIDENCE ISN'T THERE.

This guy psychologically is confused for sure. I'm curious why he can't see himself to experience remorse? His concept of snitching is so messed up!

This episode gives a huge part of the issue - a refusal to help or cooperate but want police to trust them. This obviously doesn't work.

When the police refuse to talk, things are going to get one-sided. That's on them, and there's an obvious reason they don't want to answer questions.

Jane C I tend to disagree. I hear her documenting pretty deep reporting, with lots of interviews, lots of document review, and lots of additional background sourcing -- certainly a lot deeper than we can expect to see from the vast majority of coverage of the criminal-justice system. If a listener doesn't like the subject matter or the conclusions that the reporting suggests, that's one thing, but I don't see how that implicates the newsgathering techniques.
