A critical look into some true crime cases where American law enforcement made up for lack of actual physical evidence by using devious psychological tactics during interrogation in order to extract confessions from naive suspects.

| Very disturbing
Netflix has come with a new series where people confess a crime they didn't do... At least that is how Netflix pictures them. I really wan't to believe that these sentenced didn't do the crime, but I have to keep in my mind that Netflix also can show what it want's me to believe.

The second episode was the most disturbing so far. It left me in tears and after watching it, I really wanted to sign a petition or at least do something.. But something also tells me that Netflix doesn't show me the whole context. If Netflix can make me believe in one episode that these people are innocent, how come that the judges don't believe it? I assume and really hope that the American judge system is not as corrupted and naive as Netflix pictures it.

If I have to believe that these people are innocent, the more disturbing thing is that the real perpetrators still aren't behind bars.

So to keep a long review short... - you don't know what to believe - These episode's will leave you angry and confused - Very disturbing stories

Last but not least... I have to give Netflix a big thumps up for creating a platform that doesn't show how great the world is and how heroic people are.. not every story has a happy ending.
