'Making A Murderer' Makes A Movement (Spoiler Alert)
The Netflix original series has sparked a movement aimed at righting perceived wrongs in the U.S. criminal justice system.By Cody LaGrow | December 30, 2015
By now, you may have seen someone on social media spouting off about Netflix's hard-to-watch show "Making A Murderer."
It's a true crime series centered around Steven Avery, a man who spent 18 years behind bars for a violent crime he didn't commit in 1985.
After DNA evidence exonerated Avery in 2003, he filed a $36 million lawsuit in 2004 against Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, for his wrongful conviction. It was that lawsuit, Avery said, that led police to frame him for murder so the county could escape financial responsibility.
