Ep. 126 First Them, Then Me

Updated: Jun 27, 2023

Often we hear of mass shooters taking their lives in the wake of a rampage to avoid being killed by cops or going to jail. But far more often, instances of murder-suicide are intimate and personal. In this week’s case, we discuss the murders of Mitra Mehrabadi, James 'JJ' Hurtado, and Lisa Stevie Haynes and the deaths of Jim Morgan, Kenneth Valdez, Jason Huston, and Terry Daniel.

يذكرنا الجو بفيلم رائج عن كازينو، حيث تكون المخاطر هائلة وكل رمية نرد لديها القدرة على التأثير على نتيجة اللعبة. خذ في الاعتبار قصة تتفاوض فيها الشخصيات في عالم مثير للاهتمام مليء بالأفراد الأقوياء والسرقة المخادعة arabcasino والتحالفات الغريبة. إنها ليست مجرد لعبة بأي حال من الأحوال. رحلة سينمائية عبر مشهد مثير من الخطر والمكافأة هو ما يدور حوله هذا الفيلم.
