Description

Tom was a cop; Jason was a teenager in a gang. One night in 1997, they had a violent encounter that Tom describes as “inevitable.” In our season finale, Tom and Jason relate the story of that night, and the series of events that unfolded in the years afterward.

Justin's story is really powerful but i don't hear Tom doing time or having his life messed up or asking forgiveness for the guy he murdered while he was running away. at least i can understand Justin feeling like it was kill or be killed even though that's messed up he wasn't going out of his way to kill anyone. Or his wife being messed up that her husband murdered for his job. Again the moral of the story for me is ACAB

Thank you everyone involved in this episode. The transforming power of compassion, forgiveness and love displayed by Christy and Tom moved me to my core. Jason, letting yourself be loved like that allows the rest of us to so the same. Youre all beautiful and I feel so much respect, admiration and reverence for you all. Words dont do justice what you bring into the world ❤
