      Yes, tons of evidence planted by the COPS!!!

      Not even looking at other suspects tells me they were out to get Avery because of the lawsuit.
      Colborn and Lenk obviously planted the evidence. Manitowac County is a disgrace. I hope all of these lowlife officials go to jail and get the crap beat out of them every day for the rest of their miserable lives. Horrible people who don’t deserve another day of freedom.

      These two attorneys are amazing men. I believe they did the best job possible up against a compromised judicial system in Manitowac.

    The strategy of distraction–
    The primary element of social control is the strategy of distraction which is to divert public attention from important issues and changes determined by the political and economic elites, by the technique of flood or flooding continuous distractions and insignificant information. distraction strategy is also essential to prevent the public interest in the essential knowledge in the area of the science, economics, psychology, neurobiology and cybernetics. “Maintaining public attention diverted away from the real social problems, captivated by matters of no real importance. Keep the public busy, busy, busy, no time to think, back to farm and other animals (quote from text Silent Weapons for Quiet War ).”

    I think the mushy brown stuff has clouded your mind’s eye….for you sir or madam are in serious denial. Get your head out of your arse and see the truth. There is tons of evidence linking SA to the killing of Teresa Halbach. You are what’s wrong with the justice system making you a guilty contributor to her cold blooded murder by a sociopathic monster.

      You should eat your advice. The fact that you believe so called evidence which was ALL compromised, tainted, botched, nonexistent for the first several searches, doesn’t make sense when it’s found or when you put it all together and ALL clouded by deception and total misconduct…is disturbing. The only thing their “evidence” proved is how corrupt they are and operate by their own rules. Really think about all of the “evidence”…think about the hatred these officials had toward Avery and really think about who was hacking into and tampering with the victims voicemail before she even arrived at the Avery property or went missing. Anyone had access to put that car on the outskirts of that lot in such a convenient spot for an outsider to get in and out without being seen. Avery and Dassey are not very bright but no way Avery is dumb enough to not crush & incinerate that vehicle OR dumb enough to burn the victim right next to his house. Even if all that did make sense the states “evidence” does not stand without being disputed or deemed unreliable…that’s a fact. Bullet casing with victims DNA found in the garage yet none of the experts found one trace of blood and the defense experts said the so called DNA was so inconclusive it couldn’t even be recorded as DNA which they gathered from the states report! Also, there is no such thing as “sweat DNA” …that is legitimately known as transfer DNA of unknown source. Who transferred the DNA to underneath the car hood? Avery couldn’t have done it without defying logic of all the other so called evidence in the vehicle. If Kratz is capable of violating his professional & moral conduct sexually “victimize” a victim of domestic abuse whom he is supposed to help, isn’t it reasonable to think he’s capable of much more scandal…like framing someone. All of this is only a snippet of what doesn’t add up. Really put it ALL together and tell me this case was proven beyond a reasonable doubt and without corruption and that it was a fair unbiased trial. Exactly.

    This whole thread like many others, is designed to sell advertising, salaried professional trolls are hired, to “stir the pot”” inciting controversy, and making $$ for the con artists that initiated this site. Folks open your eyes
