the danger of Making a Murderer


Netflix’s Making a Murderer has swept the nation and shedding light on a scary part of our law enforcement.

How easy it is to be framed for something and how shockingly long it takes to correct that mistake but the other scary part of this documentary is how easy documentaries can sway you into thinking something that may not be 100% unbiased.


Sure Steven Avery was convicted of a sex crime he didn’t commit and that’s a travesty. I’m glad that we are being told of such things BUT when a documentary roots for someone or something it can lead the audience to believe something which may not be right. I AM NOT SAYING I THINK AVERY SHOULD HAVE BEEN FALSELY IMPRISONED!!!!

I’m sure its extremely difficult to do a completely unbiased documentary, especially when you are talking guilt or innocence but it is extremely easy to leave out key facts to make the conclusion you are trying to get your viewers to come to that much easier.  I am not saying the people that made Making A Murderer have done this but evidence is out there that is suggesting just that!

My point is this, watch something then do your own investigating online(NOT on conspiracy websites and try to find more than one site with information you do find!)

You can find a lot of false information online but with just a little bit of investigating you can also find corroborating evidence from multiple sources that usually means you have found genuine information. Just don’t sit back in your chair and be spoon-fed any information ever.


UPDATE: from Yahoo news:

Here is his email to us, in its entirety. It begins with the Calumet County district attorney responding to our question about whether he believed the docu-series left out any evidence:

Examples for you to consider:

1. Avery’s past incident with a cat was not “goofing around”.  He soaked his cat in gasoline or oil, and put it on a fire to watch it suffer.

2.  Avery targeted Teresa.  On Oct 31 (8:12 am) he called AutoTrader magazine and asked them to send “that same girl who was here last time.”  On Oct 10, Teresa had been to the Avery property when Steve answered the door just wearing a towel.  She said she would not go back because she was scared of him (obviously).  Avery used a fake name and fake # (his sister’s) giving those to the AutoTrader receptionist, to trick Teresa into coming.

3. Teresa’s phone, camera and PDA were found 20 ft from Avery’s door, burned in his barrel.  Why did the documentary not tell the viewers the contents of her purse were in his burn barrel, just north of the front door of his trailer?

4.  While in prison, Avery told another inmate of his intent to build a “torture chamber” so he could rape, torture and kill young women when he was released.  He even drew a diagram.  Another  inmate was told by Avery that the way to get rid of a body is to “burn it”…heat destroys DNA.

5. The victim’s bones in the firepit were “intertwined” with the steel belts, left over from the car tires Avery threw on the fire to burn, as described by Dassey.  That WAS where her bones were burned!  Suggesting that some human bones found elsewhere (never identified as Teresa’s) were from this murder was NEVER established.

6.  Also found in the fire pit was Teresa’s tooth (ID’d through dental records), a rivet from the “Daisy Fuentes” jeans she was wearing that day, and the tools used by Avery to chop up her bones during the fire.

7.  Phone records show 3 calls from Avery to Teresa’s cell phone on Oct 31.  One at 2:24, and one at 2:35–both calls Avery uses the *67 feature so Teresa doesn’t know it him…both placed before she arrives.  Then one last call at 4:35 pm, without the *67 feature.  Avery first believes he can simply say she never showed up (his original defense), so tries to establish the alibi call after she’s already been there, hence the 4:35 call.  She will never answer of course, so he doesn’t need the *67 feature for that last call.

8. Avery’s DNA (not blood) was on the victim’s hood latch (under her hood in her hidden SUV).  The SUV was at the crime lab since 11/5…how did his DNA get under the hood if Avery never touched her car?  Do the cops have a vial of Avery’s sweat to “plant” under the hood?

9. Ballistics said the bullet found in the garage was fired by Avery’s rifle, which was in a police evidence locker since 11/6…if the cops planted the bullet, how did they get one fired from HIS gun?  This rifle, hanging over Aver’s bed, is the source of the bullet found in the garage, with Teresa’s DNA on it.  The bullet had to be fired BEFORE 11/5—did the cops borrow his gun, fire a bullet, recover the bullet before planting the SUV, then hang on to the bullet for 4 months in case they need to plant it 4 months later???
