The two filmmakers were on NPR this morning. When asked about whether they thought Avery was guilty, they unapologetically said they didn't know. But they'd like to believe in the system, and trust that the system is better, that the system should work.
And I agree that this is what bothers me most about this case. The fact that were able to railroad an innocent man into jail the first time, and then having a strong conflict of interest the second time, being sued by him at the time. Even if he is guilty, it just doesn't seem like the system has changed much and an innocent man could still be sent to jail since there's been no real reforms.
