typical logical fallacies of conspiracy theories
28 July 2019 | by random-70778See all my reviews

First of all, yes racial prejudice exists in the criminal justice system (often in both directions as we saw with OJ Simpson).

But this "documentary" is just one sequence of red herrings, (many) strawman arguments, appeal to ignorance, circular argument etc etc. In fact you could use this documentary in a logic class to illustrate every commonly deployed logical fallacy.

Were aspects of this case bungled by this small town police force and prosecutor? Yes. But lots of persons who have studied the case on the outside of this small town still make a compelling argument that Hillary is very likely guilty as do persons in law enforcement. I agree in holding the constitution paramount even when guilty are let go if fourth or fifth amendment violations occur, or if it is not beyond a reasonable doubt -- but that causing a finding of not guilty does not make the person innocent in reality

We know Hillary lied about substantive and material facts. Contrary to what is implied in the documentary he did NOT have an alibi for the full window in which all the experts agree the murder could have been committed.

Lastly Hillary was not the prime suspect because he was black. he was dating and cohabitation the mother of the children -- and he got along VERY badly with the 12 year old victim and blamed that 12 year old for the break up with the mother by his own admission. And he himself made many inconsistent statements. That is why he was the suspect.

There is NOTHING that excludes him from this murder and nothing that points to anyone else
