I'm obviously in support of innocent until proven guilty, but in defense of the police, it has to be so frustrating when they are certain someone committed a crime, especially a murder, and they can't find clear evidence.
I agree with that long post you made on the previous page. That's exactly what it was, a guy trying to spend seven episodes cobbling together the next Serial that everyone talks about on social media, blah blah. What also pissed me off, as I've complained about here and there, was the shitty and contrary editing. They edited out all the wrong parts. Interviews went like this:
Voiceover: I talked to Ted Smith, a man from John's past.
Host: "...Uh, hey, you got a second to talk?"
Guy: "I think so... uh... just got to... uh, interesting that we're having an interview, right?"
Host: "Yeah... totally... [empty air] ...this is really cool."
Guy: "So I got this great story. One day, me and John-"
Voiceover, interrupting: He told me a great story with highs and lows, some really poignant parts, and a really funny anecdote about penguin mittens. We talked for nearly three hours, the words flowed from him like honey. Not only did I learn insightful things, but it tickled my soul in only the most edifying ways.
Guy: "So that's basically what happened."
Host: "Wow, thanks for the interview, man."
