I am in the process of editing this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show.
Because I have begun a humble podcast endeavor that has some great surprise guests in store for next month--I got to offer something extra fun and cool during fundraising month, as that is how I roll--I also like to share and listen to other interesting online shows whenever possible.
I have spent a good amount of time talking about thug killer cops here on WARN and in my work elsewhere. One of my recurring questions is, "how and why do the supposedly 'good apples' in America's police turn so bad?"
Of course, there is a culture of violence, authoritarianism, and white supremacy among America's police departments. But, how does one cop explain his turning to "the dark side?" And what does he or she do when they fear being caught?
The great podcast series Snap Judgement has the answer--at least to how one cop became a rapist crook and then fled into the woods for 20 years in order to avoid arrest.
"Unforgiven" also chronicles his amazing road back to society and some type of partial redemption.
Good stuff here folks.
A bonus, and a podcast that I have been listening to repeatedly for reasons of personal inspiration and also entertainment.
Whatever happened to "Gorgeous Dre" (government name "Andre Taylor") from the great documentary American Pimp? Apparently, he is now a motivational speaker.
He is a wise man who has learned a new hustle.
