Three cases that directly impact the rise of vigilantism in America were decided this week. The lynching of Ahmaud Arbery shocked the world but only when the public got to see footage of what took place. The place saw the same footage and were content not to act. Jarlath asks Marion about what this says to the public on the other side of these convictions. Marion takes us through the trial step by step and attempts to join the dots between Arbery, Rittenhouse and Charlottesville. Justice was served this week but how it came about was miraculous. How many similar cases have been buried? Marion and Jarlath also offer their weekly recommendations for what to watch and read.
