One place we will never, ever visit — the most evil, vile, vindictive, disgusting community/county in America, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. We spent the weekend binge watching the 10 part documentary series, Making A Murderer on Netflix and it was stunning, depressing, and horrifying. Like watching the most terrifying train wreck one could possibly imagine. One Steven Avery’s life was ruined, and that of his 16-year-old nephew (Brendan Dassey) and family, by Manitowoc’s law enforcement, DA, judges, juries, the FBI, the state of Wisconsin, etc, et al, and these two men are serving life in prison and 43 years in prison respectively for a murder, rape, and other crimes they most certainly didn’t commit and for which they most certainly were framed by the police. It was simply stunning how deep the corruption and conspiracy reached, how much circumstantial evidence and actual evidence the defense lawyers presented, how on Day One of Avery’s jury deliberations, seven people voted not guilty, three voted guilty, the rest were undecided, then one had to step down for a medical emergency, then after an alternate juror was found, bam, guilty! The nephew, with a 69 IQ, dumb as a rock and with the cops and his own lawyers telling him what to say in confessions he was forced to write, had no clue what he was doing or saying. These people were dull idiots, but they were not rapists and killers just cause they were simple rednecks. We felt really sorry for them and their families, who were harassed constantly by the police and the county. They were arrested in 2005, convicted in 2007, appealed, were turned down, appealed to the state supreme court, were turned down, lost their lawyers, are totally screwed, and as of this month, Obama has told Avery he can’t help him because Avery’s case is a state case and Obama just has federal jurisdiction in pardons, sorry, and I can’t help but think that the president of the US, if he really wanted to, could do *something* somehow, but this guy and his nephew and his family are outcasts and are totally and completely fucked unlike any people I have ever seen or heard of in my life. This, after Avery spent 18 years in prison for a rape he was proven not to have committed, and was released from prison in 2003. This alleged murder in 2005 occurred three weeks after three sheriff’s deputies were deposed in his $36 million civil lawsuit against the county, DA, and sheriff. Coincidence? I think not. We think not. We think he and his nephew are 100% innocent and we’ve never seen anyone set up so obviously and so blatantly and this is scary as hell. The evidence was obviously planted several visits after the original visit to his place, and in the case of a “damning” bullet fragment, four months after people had searched his garage numerous times. All of this damning evidence found after numerous searches was found after these two same cops accessed these locations and in fact they themselves “found” some of it which it seems they most obviously planted at the time they “found” it. Stunning. In fact, I got up at 11:30 tonight after spending an hour trying to go to sleep and being unable to do so because I was obsessing about this documentary and this poor family, this family of dullards and inbreds their own original defense lawyers called evil who needed to be wiped out as they worked for the prosecution. Fucking unreal. I’ve never seen a documentary like this and I used to like Wisconsin, until Scott Walker, but even then, I still thought the people in the state were still somewhat decent. Now I know better. That is one fucked up state with some serious fucked up people and I know there are a number of fucked up states out there, notably Texas and Kansas, my own Tennessee, etc, but now I seriously fucking HATE Wisconsin and having been there several times before, I never want to go back there again and certainly never want to go near that fucking evil county or town for fear of being locked up for life if I breathe the wrong way, those bastards. If you want a wake up call to true injustice, watch this documentary. It’s engaging, enthralling, frightening as hell, and a real eye opener.
