Netflix Documentary The Staircase – Michael Peterson, harmless or responsible? : TrueCrime


So I do know the documentary got here out in 2018, and I am unsure if others have posted beforehand or not, however I simply completed this documentary and I’m STUCK. *SPOILERS

As I am watching this, I first thought – responsible. He must be, there isn’t any attainable approach somebody falls down the steps and THAT a lot harm is inflicted. And the truth that his earlier spouse additionally died in the identical method. I imply COME ON. However then I proceed to observe and it is fascinating that she already had medical circumstances that will of made her extra prone to expertise extra blood loss than most. The kids, who’re from the primary marriage, are simply so positive he is harmless. They again him from the primary day up till the final. You may see the prosecution attacking and utilizing his sexuality towards him and it is infuriating…..however then in different scene’s I take a look at his face and I am like “He is a psychopath. He is only a actually good liar.” There’s something creepy simply not real about him that makes me suppose he could possibly be responsible. Alternatively I additionally suppose part of me thinks he is harmless and I feel loads of that stems simply from his kids and his lawyer David. Davis is wise, fast, and a go-getter. He actually has a battle in him and his persistence sticks with you. The youngsters are simply so torn up. They love him they usually put him on this pedestal and also you virtually really feel responsible for pondering a household man may homicide not one, however two of his wives.

I cannot determine if I feel Michael Peterson is responsible or if he is harmless and I’ve simply watched too many crime documentaries that now I feel I am an professional at figuring out psychopaths. Ideas??
