ANOTHER "MAKING A MURDERER" UPDATE: WAS STEVEN AVERY FRAMED TWICE BY MINNESOTA'S POLICE AND JUSTICE SYSTEM?
'Making a Murderer': New Filing Details How Steven Avery Was Framed
NOTE: For those of us who were dedicated Netflix "Making A Murderer" documentary watchers, we all knew that the conviction of Brendan Dassey was about as rational as Donald Trump building a wall at our Mexican border and having Mexico pay for it. With the overturning of Dassey's conviction, the immediate question was: "Well what about Steven Avery's conviction since it was Brendan's testimony that basically convicted Avery, at least in the minds of the jury if not with us viewers. Sure, there was tons of "evidence," all circumstantial and much of it sketchy at best, but somehow the prosecution's narrative didn't seem to add up. So is it possible that Steven Avery has been railroaded by Manitowoc County authorities for a second time? Seems impossible doesn't it that some guy could be wrongfully convicted of crimes he didn't commit (rape and attempted murder in 1985 and murder in 2005) twice by the same judicial system. Yet, I have yet to hear from anyone who watched Brendan's "confession" on Netflix who actually believed it for a hot second. And given the complicated (some would say circuitous or even tortured) circumstances surrounding the murder of Teresa Halbach, it very definitely seems within the range of possibility and perhaps even "likelihood."
So as egregious and as damning as a second fame-up might seem, I'm willing to bet that this is exactly what's going to happen. Here's the latest chapter in this embarrassing saga of American justice:

Today, Kathleen Zellner, attorney for Steven Avery, filed a motion requesting access to a long list of evidence so that new advanced forensic testing can be conducted in order to prove that her client, as well as his nephew Brendan Dassey, was framed for the murder of Teresa Halbach in 2005. Avery’s case was the subject of the Making a Murderer docuseries on Netflix. Zellner also filed a motion asking the appeals court to essentially press pause on the proceedings until testing is completed.
Good Day To You And May You Never Be Wrongly Convicted Rape, Attempted Murder and Murder!
