This weekend has been a mixed bag of bullshit. We’re discussing the completion of two trials that, on the surface, seem unrelated but after digging a bit, there are some threads that connect these two cases. The case first we discussed was the Philando Castile (murder) trial. Officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty for shooting Castile seven times after CastileĀ told the officer he was licensed to carry a weapon and had one in his pants pocket. Castile was shot while reaching for his ID after telling Yanez he had a gun permit and was armed. The second trial was the Bill Cosby case in which it was declared a mistrial. We saw the reactions splinter between people that were disgusted by the Castile verdict but simultaneously delighted by the Cosby verdict and wondered how that made any sense. We discuss it in detail in this episode.
