In our season finale, Dennis shares some final thoughts on Christian’s case from various inconsistencies to how poorly this case has been handled. Throughout working this case, we have learned that Meridian is plagued with much bigger issues of crime that span beyond the death of Christian, and Dennis discusses some of the problems the city is facing. Rae and her brother Chris expand on this and talk about the effects Christian’s case has had on the community, and what changes need to be made in Meridian in order for the citizens to feel served and protected.
In this season 1 finale of Culpable, Dennis shares some final thoughts on Christian’s case and all of its inconsistencies. Throughout this investigation we have seen a bigger problem at play here in Meridian, problems that lie beyond the botched investigation–problems with the city government and law enforcement that pose a much bigger problem than incompetent law enforcement.
We hear closing thoughts from Rae and her brother Chris on the effects of Christian’s case in the community, and we discuss the changes that need to be made in Meridian in order for citizens to genuinely be served and protected. We also hear from Michael Grace, who is running for DA and hear his thoughts on what needs to be done in Meridian as well as with Christian’s case.
We also share practical ways that you as the general public, can help make change happen for Chrisitan’s case and for the City of Meridian. And finally, we share a big announcement at the very end of the episode–stay tuned to the end!
