Judicial murder made by inequity legal system

In the month after “Making a Murderer” premiered on Netflix, more than 129,000 Americans signed a petition to pardon Avery and Dassey for their convictions to the murder of Halbach and in the book ‘in cold blood’ written by Truman Capote, the two murderers were treated by ignoring the mental problem influence of theirs, they stayed in prison for five years and were finally performed death penalty. After reading the book and watching the TV show, I think these crimes sufficiently prove that there is a fundamental inequity at work in countless branches of legal system.

Firstly, the judicial system didn’t try hard to avoid the unfair punishment to the suspects. In the Clutter’s crime, Perry leaded a vagabond life and he was always had a violent temper. He had an abusive childhood, which left him with some childlike behaviors such as wetting the bed and sucking his thumb when he cries in his sleep. To add injury to insult, Perry also had got into a motorcycle accident.

Another charge of Avery after he was finally free in 2005 was the police thought he murdered Teresa, however, the evidences of the crime were mostly fake, parts of Teresa’s burned bones were found in Avery’s yard and her car key was found in Avery’s room, but the bones had unusual fracture and were separated located in another two places, and there was no Teresa’s finger print on her car key. That might be someone transferred the bones and the car key to frame Avery. The police also found bullet in Avery’s garage, however, there were no blood in the garage and when the investigator determine the DNA of the bullet, they made a mistake, which removed the DNA on the bullet.
