Making A Murderer


I’m never one to talk legal things on my blog or anything like this but I just couldn't help myself with this one. I’m officially finished watching the Netflix Docu-Series Making A Murderer and I have to say in completely obsessed. And I may have stayed up until 2:30 AM (DON’T TELL MY MOM!) to finish it. 
I have watched about 10+ hours worth of footage and am seeing how flawed some of the systems are and am in complete shock. I’m not going to say anymore in case someone is behind me or planning to watch but ITS GOOD. 
It shows you the real lives behind court cases, specifically the Steven Avery/Brendan Dassey ones but I'm sure other people can say they have faced similar experiences with the court systems. 
I literally sat in my room watching the last episode and I actually cried, one of Steven's family members was saying that if things happened like they did last time for him, he would want his mom and dad there for it. And I just realized, damn, Steven's parents could both pass away knowing/thinking that their son is innocent and sitting and rotting in a jail cell. And its like that’s when it hit me, no matter if he is actually guilty or innocent people in prison could have loved ones pass and not even get to say goodbye. For me that’s when it got even realer then it was before, because yes both Steven and Brendan are in jail, most likely not getting out for a questionable crime and then on top of that to have a loved one die. It absolutely opened my eyes just a little bit more when that was said. 
Anyway, its an absolute much watch for anyone who is even slightly interested in these types of things and even if your not its extremely informative. I cant say enough about this series all I can say is you need to make 10 hours of time to sit down and watch this! It’s been everywhere lately and it’s nice to know what’s happening in the world and what’s the real story behind some news stories. My warning is, once you start you cant and wont stop so BEWARE!

Have you watched? What are your thoughts?
