What she means:
Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey are innocent. What was the jury thinking? Why did the prosecution change their location of the murder from the trailer to the garage? There was no evidence of Teresa's DNA in Steven's garage, bed, or room. Why didn't they test all 6 samples of Steven's blood they found in the RAV4? Why did the judge allow the bullet to be used as valid evidence even though it had been contaminated by the lab tech? Why didn't they investigate the shady ass boyfriend or the creepy brother? Why did the search take more than 2 days? Why did the courts allow the police to go back 4 months after the crime was committed to search Steven's property again? Why was the key to the RAV4 not found in the first or second or even third search? And for gods sake, Brendan Dassey! That poor child is intellectually hindered, he never stood a chance! It was CRIMINAL to interrogate him with no parent or lawyer present! Why couldn't they find any DNA evidence linking Dassey to the crime? Why didn't they call his mother up to testify? Why couldn't they corroborate his alibi of being at home during the time of the murder? Why was Brendan not given a retrial after his confession tapes PROVED the police coerced a confession from him? The US justice system is grotesquely corrupt, and the Manitowoc County can go suck a big bag of dicks.
fun facts: my town has a metal ring in the middle of the road on 8th street because part of a russian artificial earth satellite crashed there in 1962. they celebrate it every year with a thing called sputnikfest. yeah idek.
who else is watching the netflix program Making a Murderer?
is it just me, or does anyone else feel suspicious about the brother, ex boyfriend and roommate of the victim? those 3 definitely have something to do with her disappearance & murder. the way they “guessed” her voicemail password and knew by themselves to check her phone records is odd to me. the roommate didn’t report her missing at any time, and he lives with her so he should know when she was supposed to be home. i’ve got this feeling that the 3 men somehow blackmailed or threatened the nephew, Brendan, into confessing to the murder and also blaming his uncle.
anyone else watching, feel free to share with me what you’re thinking!!
i want you forever (right here by my side) - chapter one
summary: “Phil Coulson. Thought you might like to know before we begin. I promise I won’t twist your arm… too hard,” he says with a smile which widens as she returns it. “Melinda May,” she responds, accepting his handshake. Her hand is small, her fingers slim, and her grip is unsurprisingly firm. “You wouldn’t dare. I’d whip your ass.” Phil Coulson and Melinda May. Their story, from the very first day.
notes: my take on a phil/melinda origin story inspired by theories from the philinda chatroom. please let me know what you think :) thank you to @agentsphilinda for beta-ing this one for me!
The streets are still littered with red, white and blue streamers the day Phillip Coulson is born, in a small town in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. His father is a history teacher, his mother a homemaker, and he is their first and only child. He weighs eight pounds and two ounces, measures twenty inches and lets out quiet cries of protest as he is dragged into the world by a none too gentle doctor.
Phil grows up an average boy.
He is of an average height and average weight, and attends the local elementary school with all the other regular boys and girls. He plays baseball in the little leagues, does all his chores and homework and spends time with the neighbour’s children in the front yard in the afternoons, supervised by his mother who often presents him with treats as rewards for good behaviour.
His favourite in summer is her Apple pie, with a golden and flakey crust, wrapped around a piping hot filling of caramelised apple slices. It’s not too sweet and not too sour, and she always serves it with a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade; the lemons picked from a little tree in their back garden.
In winter, his parents make hot chocolate from scratch, and the family of three stay warm huddled by the fireplace, trading stories about their day.
They’re an average family, with an average house and an average life.
But the first eight years of Phil’s life are safe, and happy.
