Her name was Teresa Halbach: What Netflix Missed with “Making a Murderer”

Thank you for writing this. I have been disturbed by the fanfare around this and similar forms of entertainment (Serial…) over the past couple of years. My aunt was murdered in 2011, and the murderer was finally convicted in 2014. I can only imagine how horrifying it would be to me and my family if we were to find her death turned into entertainment for the masses. Yes, our justice system is broken in many ways. Yes, we should acknowledge that. But it shouldn’t be sensationalized, and it shouldn’t be consumed for pleasure, and it shouldn’t be consumed at all without acknowledgement of the victims involved. I am glad to hear about Teresa, and I think she deserves our memories and concern. Her killer does not.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
