    This is a perfect example of why you never answer any questions without an attorney, especially if you are innocent. The lawyer is there not to determine guilt, they are there to protect the truth from police that are under no obligation to tell the truth or act with any morals whatsoever.

      Unfortunately he’s also mentally handicap and underage, he shouldn’t have been interviewed without a parent present. The fact that this whole interview wasn’t thrown out is jaw dropping.

      not everyone realizes that- the law should be police can’t talk to people until they’ve spoken to a lawyer because there’s literally never a good reason not to.

      @Kim Morgan there were two wrongful convictions, what exactly is one sided?

      It's extremely one sided in favor of Steven Avery. It should be unbiased and let the viewers decide for themselves.

    it's an absolute disgrace that Brendan was imprisoned based on this blatantly false confession. There was no evidence other than this and another forced confession when he was pressured by his lown lawyer to write it down along with a picture of what the scence looked like. He was then told to call his mother and tell her. these 3 key things sure what was used to convict him. A minor with learning difficulties that was led and pressured all the way with no idea about what he was saying meant. Those det are despicable!

  • adoredpariah
    adoredpariah 5 days ago +12

    This is definitely one of the most unethical series of interviews that I’ve seen. To think they could just manipulate and lead a kid with learning difficulties into a confession is sickening. They better hope karma isn’t real.

    This classic railroading in a police interrogation and why you NEVER EVER talk to the police without a lawyer present.

      @Alex B yes I agree. If you tell me they need to do that to get conviction than OK. But they don't right that's the part hard to understand and God for bid person innocent and one those people that admit to anything . Now the real bad guy out there to do same shiuu . This actually happened to this family already, which what makes it so interesting.

    This was so wrong he has a minor with no lawyer or guardian and he has a disability like wtf...this wasn't right at all

  • Father AxeKeeper's Archives

    the amount of lying, manipulation, and pretending to be the good guy the interrogator does. "honesty will set you free," yeah right, more like "honesty" will get you into a permanent cell faster..
    Man, Am I wrong for disliking these people?? Even when they are talking to actual criminals, they do the most scummy tactics to get confessions. I just can't get behind them.

    • twilit
      twilit 3 days ago +1

      imagine lying to someone by saying “honesty will set you free” knowing it’s against their own best interest to say anything guilty or not and will likely put them behind bars for the rest of their life.if they so much as say something the police think they can use against you.

    • Paul Clancy
      Paul Clancy 5 days ago +1

      I hear ya and being friends with killers just to get them to talk , I know they feel it's there job but you have be two faced any way you slice it and who likes 2 faced people . Either you're sympathetic towards pol youyou dispise or your not being able to be on both sides isn't possible while being a good person ..they don't even need the trickery most of the time but do make more money and accolades 👏 to get them ultimately convicted for most as possible true or not . Isn't being a good detective spending that time to get the facts regardless what the perp says
      Anyone capable of heinous crimes aren't going be honest even with themselves humans lie and it's OK if the system supports it. Not for me .

    Every time he says “we already know” or “are you sure?” when they don’t like how the story is going I want to throw up. And the “I have a feeling” comments. This kid was so manipulated. This is a travesty of justice.

    Confessions seem like the best way to avoid having to do actual detective work. 🤣

  • KimmieDawn
    KimmieDawn 5 days ago +32

    Them 2 investigators were really questioned by many of the attorneys on how they questioned him! And led him to say things! They lied to him and told him that Steven was going to blame everything on him! That’s one of the first things you can hear them tell him! You can tell by the questions that he asked that he wasn’t mentally capable of answering questions like that! He should have had an adult/guardian or attorney well maybe both with him during this!!! They just wanted a conviction!!! Just like they did with Steven! I really liked watching both seasons on Netflix! This poor boy, well man now, is innocent!! 🤷🏻‍♀️

      I do agree they want conviction mire than anything , it's like humans and money 💰. We manipulate our minds to justify why it's OK to be dishonest. They only want Brendan to be honest but yet thier not honest themselves is a perfect example.

    • Paul Clancy
      Paul Clancy 5 days ago

      Well I agree some what but they beileive their guilty and if think about poor girl no one would care. Problem is everyone has reasonable doubt due to Steven's first conviction. Kind makes sence Steven Brennan done it , hard prove otherwise

      They’re rabid dogs, cornering him, edging closer and closer every minute, impatiently writhing their hands, almost drooling, then pawing at him as the insufferable clock ticks and Brendan’s face draws a deeper shade of red.
      It’s such a hard watch. Truly the stuff of nightmares.
      I swear the county wanted to dismantle this family to take their land.
      Bless this young man and the whole family 💜

    OMG, I was just talking this morning about the oversized jeans that kids used to wear when I was in highschool (and I'm just 1 year older than him lol).. Even weirder, I literally had those EXACT same jeans when I was 16 (the exact same year that this was filmed). They zip off at the knees to become shorts. They must be the same jeans (since I've never seen a pair like them, before or since LMAO 😹)..

      Totally agree. It is sad, he seems like a kid with Down syndrome. There so sweet and not violent in any way. I don’t know how the cops or judges can sleep at night. I honestly think they sacrifice Brendan to have a stronger case against Avery. Don’t forget they had 30 million reasons to make sure Avery was found guilty. ( even though I believe HE Is) . Brendan was sacrificed,

    They were both wronged so badly. If only they would have played the taped confession in its entirety during the trial. They stopped it just before what would have made it very clear Brendan was coerced into a confession. Which would have also put serious doubt that Steven had anything to do with it.

    If they are innocent, then who killed her? How does anyone in this comment section know what’s true or not? Did anyone read the public documents? A woman was murdered and burned and seeing some of these comments having sympathy for two men that nobody here personally knows makes me wonder. The interrogation wasn’t great AT ALL, I agree. Innocent until proven guilty I understand. But this woman was brutally murdered and I haven’t seen one comment about the murder victim. Only sympathy for these two guys. Documentaries can tell stories however they like to get views. Some ppl in these comments are biased from what they’ve seen in the doc. IMO!

    It’s crazy because the police are totally lame but the information he’s saying is pretty detailed. It’s not like they’re telling him what to say. It also seems like the cop is getting off on it, he’s turning all red and sounds like a pervert. I’ve seen this long ago but rewatching it now I have a different perspective. The tapes don’t stop so they’re not feeding him a narrative. Ugh this cop is a sick freak. Most cops are, but this one is over the top.

      because the scummy interrogator tricked him into confessing to something. it's pretty much their job to do so. so much trickery in their words, making people believe they will be safe from any harm or prosecution if they confess to a crime.
