The Netflix documentary series, 'Making A Murderer,' has been nothing if not a productivity-robbing, cultural sensation since it dropped in December.

If you're one of those cave-dwellers who resides under a rock you should know that the documentary focuses on Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man, who might've been framed for crimes he didn't commit a few times.

The frontman for The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach, and his new blues-rock band, The Arcs took the global bingeing efforts to a new high with their recent released track, "Lake Superior."

The song references the Steven Avery criminal case, and the perverse, if not corrupt way the police and the criminal justice system considered as an entity, handled it.

Auerbach's vocals, as usual, don't disappoint; and manage to carry through song, the full emotional depth of this emotionally-riveting case.

This latest bailout brings the total sum of funds Marie Holmes has dished out for her drug-trafficking boyfriend Lamarr McDow, to a whopping $21 million.

She's a multi-million dollar enabler who got lucky with the lottery, won a grand lump-sump payment of $181 million, and has since spent her winnings in the seemingly most irrational and symptomatically insane way possible. See McDow below.

Holmes has bailed her depraved and ungrateful boyfriend out from behind bars three times since March 2015. Someone close to this lady needs to talk some sense into her, and quick.

A Chicago police officer shot and killed 19-year-old black man Quintonio Legrier, and 55-year-old black woman Bettie Jones this morning, while responding to a domestic disturbance call, officials said.

As officers were called to the scene this morning at 4:25AM they were informed Legrier was seen brandishing a baseball bat, and in an evolving confrontation with his father. The officers described the young Legrier as a "combative subject."

Legrier's mother told the press his son was dealing with mental issues and was prone to loud, but never violent behavior.

"My son has seven bullet wounds in him," Cooksey told WLS-TV. "That's too much." Police disclosed the shooting is under current investigation, and has been referred to Chicago's main police oversight agency.

Two men, Herbert-Gumbs and Mark Soto were arrested with enough blow last Thursday to frost a fu**ing ski slope—136 pounds to be exact. According to drug prosecutors the drugs seized could've been resold for as much as 3 million dollars.

Perhaps even more shocking than the sheer amount of cocaine discovered, was the decision by the two crooks to stamp some their product with "Messi," as a shoutout to their favorite famous Argentinian soccer player.

Herbert-Gumbs and Mark Soto each face four felony drug possession charges that combined could clock out at 100 years in prison.

This Facebook post advertised free cell doors for pickup and became a funny message to remind citizens out there to stay on the right side of the law. This is the whole post:



They didn't stop there though, it looks like Sergeant Colin Taylor stuck around to answer a few questions as well:

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has a stern message for train passengers:

Silly rabbit—seats are for passengers!

The transit authority tweeted out a photo of a rabbit chilling on a train seat while its carrier was clearly seen underneath the seat.

But have we stopped to think about how the rabbit feels? It was just trying to get back home from a hard day's work like the rest of us.

Clear case of bunny discrimination.

Pink handcuffs to support breast cancer awareness will be used in a Massachusetts police department.

Getting handcuffed while promoting breast cancer awareness. That's the dream.

Well, that's the dream of the Greenfield Police Department in Greenfield, Massachusetts. They are getting all pinked out for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and thought that should extend to their handcuffs.

Seriously.

They're really excited about it and posted it on their Facebook page:

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same.

Many of our community members, including some of our own friends and family members, have been affected by breast or other types of cancer.

Officers of the Greenfield Police Department have "gone pink" in order to raise awareness for the disease! All of our officers have changed their collar pins, which were blue and white state seals to pink and white pins which states "ARREST BREAST CANCER - UNLOCK THE CURE" surrounding a pink ribbon and a pair of handcuffs. Some of our officers have even replaced their on duty silver handcuffs with pink ones and will be using them during the course of their work day.



Hmmm. It seems like it could be hard to unlock the cure if they need to use those same locks on criminals.

Surely it's well-intentioned, but using a method of detainment to promote early detection and cancer research seems damn strange.
