Doing Justice: God Forbid

Listen in app
This week on Stay Tuned, we’re showcasing the third episode of Doing Justice, Preet’s six-part adaptation of his bestselling book.

In this episode, Preet tells the disturbing story of former NYPD Officer Gilberto Valle. People who work in law enforcement learn to have a special sense of impending danger, like a little voice in our heads that goes, “God forbid.” God forbid somebody should be planning a terrible crime, and no one steps in to stop him. There have been a lot of those moments in Preet’s career. This case was one of the worst.
