Netflix has a new series called I Am a Killer.
I’m not sure because it’s a hard show about hard subjects, but somehow when watching I feel tenderness. I see behind the crime to the people who committed them. I see the tragedies in their own lives. I see a system that failed them in so many ways. I see the victims, who didn’t deserve their fates. I see prosecutors hardened by years of seeing things most of us never know. I see forgiveness and I see redemption. And I see people who have become better people behind bars. I see heartache and hope. And dashed hopes.
