Not so fast, DetectiveHe did it.
I think he was part of it, yes. We watched it all. I get your point, but almost 20 years in prison will turn a man into a criminal. As for stupid? Haha! Did you watch the whole series?I am way late to the party, but this is a pretty incredible series. And 'he did it'? I think that's a pretty easy drive by - did you actually watch the entire series Brian? Maybe he did - but if he did, he's the most incredibly stupid criminal in the history of stupid criminals. The almost complete lack of forensic evidence placing the victim at the location of the *supposed* site of the crime (the one they put his nephew Brendan in prison for) alone seriously calls the truth into question. Some of the other obviously questionable police work - that the Manitowoc Sheriff's department was even involved in the investigation (while being sued by the accused), the victim's car being found within 10 minutes of a search of a 40 acre lot with thousands of junked cars by a novice searcher, key damning evidence suddenly 'showing up' in Avery's bedroom only after said humiliated Sheriff himself conducts a search - I could go on and on.
Just the body language and tone of the 'law enforcement officers' who testified is alone enough to make me question their integrity.
And that the judge acknowledged that the 16 year old's 'confession' was obtained under duress and without the presence of legal representation - but still allowed the confession in as evidence - that judge should be impeached.
If you ever want to be disgusted with our honorable criminal justice system - watch this series.
