And Justice for All?


SPOILER-adjacent:

Wow, Netflix -- that was tough to watch. If I had wanted to listen to a bunch of people who lie and make up shit as they go along (detectives, prosecutors) and have no critical-thinking skills (jurors), I could gave saved eight hours and just watched one of the Republican presidential debates. I'm not even sure this series constitutes "entertainment," but I do wish it were mandatory viewing for all Americans. I think one of exonerated attempted murderer and rapist turned accused murderer again Steven Avery's lawyer put it best when he said: “We can all say we will never commit a crime. But we can never guarantee that someone will never accuse us of a crime. And if that happens, good luck in this criminal justice system.” #addictive #fascinating #heartbreaking #infuriating #FreeStevenAvery 

UPDATE: If you're done watching, you might find People's latest on the principals HERE.

UPDATE (01/01/16): The more I learn about this, the less convinced I am of Avery's innocence. I do believe evidence was tampered with. However, it seems like a case of framing a guilty man, which is incredibly corrupt, but not as wrong as framing an innocent man. The nephew, without question, deserves a new trial. His defense team was WORKING WITH the prosecution, for crying out loud!

Amazingly riveting and one of the most disgusting displays of improper use of authority and misjustice Ive ever seen. I binged the whole series yesterday and feel like i need counseling and a hug.
