A New Netflix Show has Courtlin Fired Up
I've been seeing so many people post about the new Netflix show "Making a Murderer" on social media lately, I had to jump on the bandwagon and find out what it's all about. It's safe to say I'm totally hooked!
If you've seen the name "Steven Avery" floating around Facebook a lot this past week, you can thank Netflix for that! "Making a Murderer" is a Netflix original series that also serves as a documentary. It's about the life and crimes of convicted "murderer" Steven Avery. Avery spent 18 years in prison for a sexual assault crime he did not commit, and was released after DNA evidence proved him innocent in 2003. He was then involved in a lengthy $36 million lawsuit for several years against the country and a few of its employees.
Then, in 2005, Avery was charged with another crime - the murder of Teresa Halbach. This is where things get tricky. I'm only 3 episodes in, so I don't have an opinion yet, but so far he looks pretty guilty to me. Will my opinion change? Probably. I was told it will change about 20 more times! Was he wrongfully convicted yet AGAIN? Or did he do the crime thinking he could get away with it because I don't know, but I'm definitely interested in finding out!
So many additional topics have surfaced online about the documentary, some claiming that it's too bias, some showing evidence that was left out, and there is even a petition calling for Steven's release that has over 200,000 signatures! I'll be interested to see how all of this plays out.
If you're hooked on "Making a Murderer," I'm interested to hear what you have to say about the show. Is he guilty, innocent, or is the documentary too flawed to tell? Let us know below!
