Description

Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We're a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows.

In May 1991, a bank robber walked into a bank in Irving, Texas, and without speaking handed the teller a note that read, “This is a bank robbery. Give me your money. No marked bills or dye packs.” Witnesses reported that the robber was wearing a cowboy hat and a brown leather jacket. And then it happened again. And again. But when FBI agents finally got a lead, they discovered that robber wasn't who they expected at all. Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.

Sgt. David Mascarenas was the Dive Supervisor for the Los Angeles Police Department. He’s been diving his whole life, and prides himself on never refusing a dive, no matter how treacherous. At least until the summer of 2013, when a murder investigation led him into the unusually murky waters of the La Brea tar pits. We first spoke with Sgt. Mascarenas in 2015. This week, we’re adding to the story, with information about the crime he couldn't tell us before. Criminal is a proud member of Radiotopia from PRX.

They should come over legally and they wouldn't have to worry about being separated from their family. My grandmother is from Honduras. Her whole family come to the United States legally. I don't feel sorry for them. 🤷🏼‍♀️

What a cute, feel-good episode! Put such a big smile on my face. Jessica's little giggles were so endearing, and you gotta love the little details a kid finds important to include in a story. A great episode!

I have no problem with Tony being there. He's got a big enclosure, water, grass, shelter, good food, vet care, not being abused, kept clean...why is this a problem? Tony sounds happy and well taken care of. 🤷🏼‍♀️

The police don't decide your gender, your chromosomes do. You can your physical appearance all you want, but it doesn't change your bones, DNA, or your actual gender.

Where were the ghosts from? Were they previous inhabitants? Did we miss something?

I am glad that "Tunnel Vision" didn't prevail in this case.

Appalling that this case ever got taken to court, let alone that he was imprisoned. The whole justice system is systemically flawed. Willie is an amazing, beautiful, honourable man & I hope his case helps shine a light for others #innocenct
