Regarding our 10/5 Episode: Who Is Jane Hanlin

BTYT 10/5 Episode: Who Is Jane Hanlin

There were some comments made by some in another page that last nights broadcast may not have had new info on the case to some listeners. This is understandable and felt there are maybe some here who may have felt the same way and wanted to offer the same response I gave the others:

Whether intended or not, the common criticisms and frustrations about the case’s progress or lack thereof seem to have roots in the city’s social and political structure. The intent is to offer that background to offer context to help people better understand seeming odd decisions, statements or references made by those inside and outside the investigation. Understanding these underlying influences MAY help people answer their questions about how in less than a decade one can become a partner in a law firm, an assistant prosecutor, etc. Most of the more experienced and/or educated locals know all this intimately while some have hints of it but couldn’t quite place their fingers on specifics.

Apologies to those who may have to endure some redundancy but it has become quite clear to me that until I make this obvious close knit network more transparent and the obvious increased potential for unintended conflict of interests or outright abuse of authority this presents then many people there who have raised questions long before me will continue to be unjustifiably discounted as paranoid or ignorant by the very people they are publicly scrutinizing and/or their friends.

As I said before, I want a whole picture to be presented and give a voice to all sides of these complicated issues. It’s important and key to speeding up these investigations now and those in the future.

No matter where you are, accountability of the few always begins with and relies on the awareness of the many.
