  • View Poll Results: Is Steven Avery innocent?

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys!
    I just watched the documentary 'Making a Murderer' on Netflix and found it very thought provoking. I would recommend anyone who hasn't watched it to do so.

    The documentary has been accused of being quite biased and I do agree to some extent because they left out some vital details such as the calls that Avery made to Halbach and other evidence on the scene which linked Avery to the crime. I think the series should have shown a more impartial portrayal of the case. There were a lot of issued covered such as corruption and issues with the justice system which I believe was a positive aspect of the series.

    The documentary left me feeling very conflicted because, although it showed the flaws within the investigation, the defence failed to disprove the prosecutions theory and prove their own theory that Avery was framed. My overall opinion is that Avery DID kill Halbach, but there was some police corruption involved. But regardless of whether or not Avery killed Teresa Halbach, he nor his nephew (Brendan Dassey) were given a fair trial. I think they should both be given another trial where police actions in the original investigation are further scrutinised.

    Please let me know what you thought of the show and your opinions regarding Avery and Dassey's innocence.

    Thank you
