If you’ve been paying attention, you know that the Netflix documentary series ‘Making a Murderer’ has become fairly popular over the last couple of weeks. It follows the most recent legal troubles of Stephen Avery, an exoneree out of Wisconsin. After serving 18 years for a rape he did not commit, Avery was released and then convicted of the rape and murder of another young woman.
The series focuses on the antics of the justice system and how Avery was convicted; it’s a welcoming intro to the justice system for a lot of people who otherwise may not have gotten involved. I have yet to see the series myself, but it’s been recommended very highly. If you have Netflix, check it out. If not, the news media is covering it at an unprecedented rate, so just googling it will bring up a ton of information.
