    AN EYE FOR AN EYE -- A special edition of Yesterday’s News exploring the criminal justice system at its most extreme: Inflicting the Death Penalty... Two Doomed Fugitives Episode 211 is truly a historic case, the story behind the first execution under the Lindbergh kidnapping law, which called for the death penalty in cases where a kidnapping victim is taken across state lines, even if they remain unharmed. So when a pair of fugitives takes hostage a pair of small-town policemen in their own car... Well,  you know that’s not going to end well. This is also a historic episode because since it’s a federal case, we have our first guest appearance of a President of the United States, except for that time we tried to steal Lincoln’s body in episode 59. *** For more information about the Lindbergh Kidnapping, give “A Ladder At The Window”, Episode 113, a listen. *** Hosted by Wondery. @wonderymedia Member of the BombPod Media Network. @bombpod It’s time to step up your watch game.
