Netflix viewers have shared their anger after watching the streamer’s number one documentary. Crime Scene: The Texas Killing Fields.
The series examines how dozens of bodies have been found on a strip of dirt about 25 miles southeast of Houston since the early 1970s. Most of these bodies belong to young women, and despite support from the FBI and local authorities, the vast majority of these cases remain unsolved.
Many viewers of the show have taken to Twitter to express their outrage at the police’s failure to bring the killer – or killers – to justice.
“Looked Texas Killing Fields That was F*** HOW DID YOU LET THIS HAPPEN FOR SO LONG,” one person posted.
A second wrote: “Good Lord!! who saw Texas Killing Fields on netflix? What the hell was that? Why was the PD so cool? Oh man, my heart goes out to all parents. Lately my emotional side has been shut down and buried somewhere but I was way too overwhelmed when I saw it. And angry!!”
“Just started Texas Killing Fields on Netflix,” added a third. “And once again, cops aren’t doing their jobs.”
“The new Netflix documentary about the Texas Killing Fields is very, very good,” tweeted a fourth. “But once again, the true crime genre reinforces my belief that cops don’t suck.”
In conversation with The IndependentThe documentary’s creator, Joe Berlinger, said: “The level of indifference and incompetence and dismissal was actually particularly surprising given the era.
“You have to remember, from 1969 to 1992 … it was something like the ‘golden age of serial killers’.”
