Are U.S. Marshals Getting Away With Murder?

Tested Podcast logo

Host Charlie Shelton-Ormond examines the protocols of U.S. Marshals and how the federal agency is able to sidestep transparency.

Shielded by a safeguard of federal protection and policy, the U.S. Marshals are able to skirt past law enforcement standards aimed to hold local police accountable. Host Charlie Shelton-Ormond talked with Tannya Jennings, the sister of Charlotte resident Frankie Jennings who was shot and killed by a deputy Marshal, and Simone Weichselbaum, national law enforcement reporter for the Marshall Project, about the tactics of the U.S. Marshals Service.
