  1. The remarkable thing about how legal system is just how well it works in terms of convicting the guilty.

    Less than a small fraction of 1% of convictions are unsafe.

    Yet true crime has degenerated into click bait crime.

    Was it a suicide? Yes.
    Was there a wrongful conviction? No. It’s called “reasonable” doubt for a reason.

    True crime podcasters have become voodoo victim hunters in search of magical injustice.

    If you can’t find a victim. Make one. And while you are at it blame someone else. Preferably a white male.


  2. It seems remarkable to me that this prosecutor, Roger King, who had many notable cases throughout his long career with the Philadelphia DA’s office, does not have a Wikipedia page.
