Prosecutor Jeffrey Dahmer discusses new series on Netflix
Netflix’s new series ‘Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story’ is making headlines around the world.
But former Milwaukee DA Michael McCann doesn’t seem to be impressed with the show. For the ignorant, McCann personally prosecuted Jeffrey Dahmer in the ’90s.
He recently sat down for an interview with TMZ, where he shared his thoughts on Netflix’s latest crime drama.
During an interview, McCann said that the character of the Milwaukee Police Department in the series was ridiculous. He was referring to police depictions of the show, ignoring obvious clues because the incident involved gay and/or black people.
McCann also admitted that he hasn’t seen the series yet. But he thinks streaming platforms are most likely to portray the show as anti-police.
McCann added that episodes will lean more towards perceived racial and homophobic biases.

During an interview, Michael McCann denied the character of a police officer in the Netflix series. He argued that neither race nor sexual orientation influenced the police’s decision to investigate Jeffrey Dahmer’s case.
McCann also noted that if the police had known of Dahmer’s heinous crimes, despite the victim’s background, they would have taken immediate action to prevent it.
He further explained that Dahmer’s motives did not allow the truth to be revealed sooner. Moreover, he added that Dahmer covered his tracks well and the police did not leave much evidence to suspect him.
How was Jeffery Dahmer caught?
In July 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer met 32-year-old Tracy Edwards at a bar in Milwaukee. He insisted that Tracy be modeling some of the photos, so he invited him to his apartment.
But the stench from Dahmer’s apartment put a red flag on Tracy’s head. After that, he somehow managed to escape the place.
Fortunately, Tracy was able to catch the two officers and tell the story. The police also accompanied him to Dahmer’s apartment.
Upon investigation, they found a disturbing polaroid on his amputated body. Therefore, Dahmer was immediately detained.
He later confessed to killing 17 men and boys. Dahmer was sentenced to 16 life sentences for rape, murder, amputation, and cannibalism.
