Did they frame him?
The filmmakers of the documentary never tell you to believe it, but it's evident it's implied. It seems as if every viewer of this documentary is against the Manitowoc County law enforcement, including some of the people living in that county. This documentary added some definite damage to that department, and it will not go unnoticed - especially with a season 2 of Making a Murderer coming out soon, working on his post-conviction.
You can see here, a testimony of one of the officers where he is blatantly called out for lying. But, since the end of the documentary series ended with a "life sentence with no parole" for Avery, this obviously wasn't investigated thoroughly. There are a plethora of questions unanswered, and the filmmakers wanted you to know that.
ME AS A VIEWER
I am very persuaded. After watching this documentary, I strongly believe that a man convicted of disgustingly evil acts and still serving prison time for it is innocent. And even though of initial thought it's a long thought, I am made to believe that this small town police framed him, and that's all thanks to this documentary and how it was produced. This documentary is a brilliant learning experience about not only this story but the law and corruption and I am 100% sure of my persuaded view. This fiction-seeming story was a nonfiction nightmare.
"It's a very interesting world, there's a pretty broad cast of characters, and we applied our own narrative filmmaking techniques to ensure we were able to show the organic arcs of all these people as they were experiencing this story." -Director Ricciardi
