A great documentary on Netflix. After watching it, you will never trust the US "justice system" again.

Didn't see the documentary but from the trailer the problem is not the justice system, but rather the scum bags that handled the guys case. It is a logical fallacy to say something true of the parts is true of the whole, while there are plenty of down right [expletive] that are cogs in the justice system but the system itself is structured in a way that is for the benefit of the people imo.


Seems like an interesting watch though.

I urge you all to watch the whole thing. I will never venture into the state of Wisconsin. Just sick. The near ending where steves lawyer says he now hopes he is guilty because if he is innocent he just can live thinking that this could happen to an innocent man. It truly is a scary thing. There is a special place in he'll for that whole counties justice department.

You know most of the time im very skeptical of stuff like this but ive looked into it more and I truly believe there is a major conspiracy. It is scary that stuff like this can happen.

Definitely worth to watch the whole thing.


I couldn't imagine being in Steven Avery's shoes as he went through all this - seeing the justice system fail him time and time again. I gotta give props to Avery's defense lawyers. They did a fantastic job considering what was in front of them. They definitely would have swayed me if I was on the jury.


It's sad that some of the jurors had these preconceived beliefs that Avery was guilty. For that, I put part of the blame on the media. The media has power. It has the power to make the guilty look innocent, and to make the innocent look guilty.


edit: the prosecution also put forth bogus evidence (false testimonies, coerced confessions, etc.), and even though some of that were dismissed, there's no doubt it still lingered in the minds of the jury.


Manitowoc (apologies if i spelled it incorrectly) county should have never been involved in the first place. They were involved in falsely convicting Steven Avery of rape before this murder took place. Avery lost 18 years of his life because of the rape charge, which, again, he did not commit. Now he is losing even more years of his life for, in my eyes, another crime he did not commit.


The system is not well set up to fund the defense side. The prosecution is funded more generously than the defense. The presumption of innocence was not present in this case. The prosecution did not prove beyond reasonable doubt that Steven murdered Ms. Halbach. This case, at the very least, reveals some systemic weaknesses or things we should try to improve in our justice system.

This whole documentary was pretty depressing.

Currently on Episode 3 and it simply disgust me how they're taking advantage of an innocent young boy who clearly is so naive and clueless to the point where he can't even remotely speak for himself...


I mean neither he nor his mom knew the meaning of the word "inconsistent"...
