Default Making a Murderer - NetFlix series

Not sure if anyone else has been watching this - just burned through the first 4 episodes of 10 and man what a roller coaster ride. Whoever put this documentary together did a fantastic job. Haven't been this addicted to a show since Breaking Bad

I was waiting for this to be posted. I spent my Christmas watching this too. It's a great way to burn a day away watching TV.

Whether he did it or not, there were sure some suspect actions taken by the local cops, judges and lawyers.

I had to stop it a few times to look it up and make sure it is a true story. It scares the #### out of me how shady the justice system can be.

I did too about half way through. I know the film makers show the case from the defenses point of view, but there are just so many things that make you shake your head. I don't want to discuss it all in case I spoil it for others.

Watching it now, about 4 episodes in. Pretty interesting, but these people's accents makes me want to put my fist through a wall.

I get kind of a Janeane Garofolo vibe.

Loved this series and I hope they follow it up, but I have to take it with a grain of salt. I'm thinking the film-makers left out a lot. With a lot of things in life, the truth is somewhere in the middle.

No valuable input to add as yet, so here, take this joke I found on the internet instead!

Ken Kratz, the creepy sexting DA who's now a defense attorney in Wisconsin (incredible he wasn't disbarred for sexually harassing victims he was helping). Google and yelp reviews are hilarious as anticipated. My favourite:

Quote:
Are you a victim of a sex crime in need of some self-esteem-enhancing sexts from an older affluent (by Wisconsin standards) mustachio-ed lothario?

Are you a vindictive dirty cop who needs a charismatic prosecutor to help you put an innocent man in jail?

Are you a developmentally disabled teen who needs some help fabricating a confession inflammatory enough to get you life in prison?

Do you feel like the criminal justice system needs more perversion? Or even just more perverts?

If you answered "YES" to any one of these questions, then Ken Kratz is your man! With a proven and documented record of obsession with his own penis and vindication of corruption, Ken Kratz can help you perpetrate your evil deeds - he might even join in the fun, because if he's anything, he's a people person.

Ken Kratz - because he's never met a work of fiction he thought was too sweaty to repeat. Or embellish.
