    I'm just now watching this, and I am so disgusted at how they manipulated Dassey. One point I noticed was neither his mom or he knew what inconclusive meant.

    Quite sad, isn't it?

    First watched the series last year sometime and had lengthy discussions with workmates back then about Brendans treatment and the general feeling was that he is completely innocent (a view which I still hold 100%)
    Rewatched a couple of weeks ago and I physically hurt watching Brendans court case especially when he takes the stand and is being questioned...it hurts to watch. The injustice of it all makes me so angry and frustrated and is heartbreaking
    Just trying to understand why people do terrible things...

    I started watching Dream/Killer...it is a documentary about Ryan Ferguson. He was wrongly convicted and got released. About 6 minutes into it is a police interview with Ryan.

    Paraphrase:
    Cop: I'm only here because I have a son your age, I know you're hurting.
    Ryan: I can't talk to anyone, not even my dad
    Cop: I know, I can see your pain. Let me take his place for a moment, tell me what you would tell him. I'll tell you, when I'm looking at you, I'm looking at my own son.


    Huh "Pretend I'm not a cop right now" must be a staple of shoddy police work, this case relies heavily on a false confession, Ryan's friend Chuck confesses to a killing and says it was Ryan's idea. So far, that seems to be the only thing they have, though admittedly I am not very far into it.

    The Ryan interview is followed by an interview with Chuck, the guy who initially confesses.

    Direct quoting here:

    Cop:"How many times did you think you hit him altogether?"
    Chuck: "Just once.'
    Cop: Just once? Well the only problem I have with that is, I know he was hit more than once-
    Chuck interrupts: Yeah
    Cop continues on without stopping:-With the tool.
    Chuck: Well I just hit him once
    Paraphrasing again
    Cop: I have been holding back on what he was strangled with. Do you want to tell me what that was?
    Chuck: I think it was a shirt
    Cop: It was not a shirt.
    Chuck: I think it was a bungee cord. Or something from his car. I don't know why he would have rope in his car
    Cop: We know for a fact that he was strangled with his own belt

    Here is a wrongful conviction overturned where the police were supplying information during a confession, and helping to shape and change the confession. Does any of this sound familiar?

    One thing that bothers me about this thread is that the title implies TH was raped and tortured. AFAICT there's no evidence of those crimes having been committed. It seems unfair to the family to have to imagine such stuff happening when it could very well be speculation on the part of authorities.

    It's because that's what he was convicted of. Even if we know there is no evidence of it, unfortunately, he was convicted of it. The SA poll thread just says 'guilty of murder' because that is what he was convicted of.

    I agree that there is no evidence of it.

    The way the Dassey-case was handled is just so wrong. I sincerely hope he will get out soon.

    There is absolutely no indication or evidence that a rape/torture occured. No hard evidence of a murder. That was all, every bit, fed to him by full grown educated and experienced men, some of whom were supposedly working on Brendans own behalf.

    Let Brendan go--let him have his life.

    I believe that Brendan is hiding something.
