Like the rest of the Internet, I’ve been thoroughly engrossed by Serial. Since the podcast has ended, a whole bunch of activity has happened that has launched a whole new round of speculation.
- The Intercept: Exclusive: Jay, Key Witness from ‘Serial’ Tells His Story for First Time, Part 1
- The Intercept: Jay Speaks Part 2: ‘Hae was dead before she got to my house. Anything that makes Adnan innocent doesn’t involve me.’
- Rabin Chaudry: Is there still a case against Serial’s Adnan Syed after Jay Wilds’ interview?
- EvidenceProf Blog: The Serial Podcast: The Possible Legal Implications of Jay’s Interview for Jay & Adnan
It’s been fascinating to hear about the different viewpoints and stories from a single murder trial. It’s also, the more I read about it, like a real life episode of Law & Order. Is this a good thing? Part of me thinks that it is:getting people interested in the criminal justice process is a good thing. If someone’s guilt is confirmed or reversed in the process then that’s an added bonus. Another part of me thinks that this is all really just rubbernecking. Surely there must be a less callous way of serving justice?
In the meantime, I’ll continue scarfing down all the Serial tidbits I can find. Hopefully the 3rd part of Jay’s interview with The Intercept posts tomorrow.
