Korean Law Demystified!

Food for Thought: What We Say/Mean…

If you watch the final episode (Season 1) of Making a Murderer, Avery’s defense attorneys reflect (now) on the case they lost.

During their discussion, Atty. Dean Strang says: “I gotta tell you, I mean, if I’m gonna be perfectly candid… There’s a big part of me that really hopes Steven Avery’s guilty of this crime… because the thought of him being innocent in this crime. Um, and sitting in prison again… for something he didn’t do, now for the rest of his life, w/o a prayer of parole. Um, I can’t take that…”

It sounds to me like he (now) believes Avery to be guilty. And this is his way of saying that? Because is that something to say, really. (Whether he can stomach the situation is immaterial, really.)

What do you think? 🙂

    I think you may be right! But at the same time, I feel the same way as the attorney, and I’d feel that way even more if I had defended Avery. If Avery isn’t guilty, then he’s been unfairly convicted twice, and this time he’ll be in prison for the rest of his life. That’s just too unfair for an innocent person to have to endure, so I hope he’s guilty. So I guess can interpret the lawyer’s comments either way. It’s interesting to think about. 🙂

      Hi Jen, I think I would feel that way too. But I would never say it so publicly (?). That’s why I am thinking it may be his roundabout way of saying he now knows better. I would prolly say something like: “Unfortunately, this is the world we live in. But still, we must try our absolute best to free these people…” I dunno… Btw, the weather here is nice now! 🙂

        Oh, I’m so glad to hear it! But it makes me wish I were there right now! The weather here is warm, but we’ve had a lot of bad storms. :/
