Drift Compatible Episode 4-3-18

Back at it again. This episode is actually a bit shorter than usual. Only 90 minutes instead of the normal 2+ hours. It’s the culmination of Alex’ High Holy Days, after all.

This week Alex and I touch again on the topic of….issues….within our judicial system. First looking at the story of a Chicago man wrongfully convicted of rape and murder 26 years ago and then moving on to a brief discussion of the not guilty verdict for the wife of the man who shot up the Pulse nightclub. We also somehow made it from institutional problems in our judicial system allllll the way over to race relations and identity politics. How? You’ll have to listen to find out.

Then on to the screeching and yelling and flailing and cursing about Civil Asset Forfeiture, the DEA specifically, and the DOJ more broadly.
