50k people is a small city, not a tiny backwoods town. also, spanking - telling your kid you love them, then hitting them because you can't figure out another way to make them understand you; an act they potentially carry into relationships... Anyway, these people suck. love the pod.

These 2 ppl make me sick. what a waste of space on earth. I think some medieval punishments should be brought back for them, like having hot lead poured down their throats.

a whole lot of kink shaming and fat shaming in this one. Two things that have nothing to do with murder.

the Sam dude is not good, and probably should be in prison for *something*. But him being in prison specifically for this crime, in my eyes, means the case is unresolved.

listening to other coverage of this case, Ashley was not portrayed so kindly by the others. Sometimes it verged on slander and character assassination even though she is the victim of something horrible. Sword and Scale did right by Ashley, and brought more of her truth into the telling of her case.

Mike is kind of a dick and a little full of himself but he makes a deeply insightful intriguing podcast and often does some profound narration. I agree with the caller at the end of this episode but it won't stop me from listening. Not that Mike or anyone reading this give a shit....just throwing my two cents into a sea of loose change.

I live next to Greenwich and have spent plenty of time there. Couple things I can explain here 1. That dispatcher had never received a call like this in her life and her rude responses came from years of calls that someone's cat is stuck in a tree. 2. That verdict was straight up old money white male privilege.
