Thanks for posting up that Making a Murderer doc, watched the whole thing last week.

Had to keep pinching myself that it was real life and not the Wire etc

America is fooking bonkers

'After over 20 years on death row, a convicted murderer petitions the court asking to be executed. But as he tells his story, it becomes clear that nothing is quite what it seems.'

Superb story told by the man himself. Incredible.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_First_48

Amazing US doc series. Follow the homicide detectives…. and you've got 350 episodes to binge on.

There's also "after the first 48" that updates the cases often including the trials and sentencing.
