I just saw a trailer for a new Netflix documentary and though it relevant to share.

Its about mass incarceration and how it is exploiting a loophole created by the 13th amendment. It points out a lot of thing so we’ve covered in class, and Netflix is such a powerful medium – as seen by the events that happened after Making of a Murderer was released. Maybe it will actually make a change? Who knows.

The link to the trailer is here, for anyone interested: Netflix Trailer

    This show sounds really really interesting, and important for people to watch. I feel like people don’t know just how messed up the criminal justice system is, and it’s awesome that a big company like Netflix is covering such important topics. We’re a society that really likes visuals, so I think this will definitely open people’s eyes towards the issue

    This trailer looks really fascinating! And I find it interesting that more than any other network, Netflix takes a strong interest in incarceration. It features a lot of shows, movies and documentaries on the subject whether it be approached as a comedy or drama.

    I’m really interested both in seeing this and also in seeing what the reactions are to it. Hopefully it will open people’s eyes to the issues of mass incarceration and the loophole to the 13th Amendment.
