Unbelievable depicts the story of a young sexual assault victim who isn’t believed by police. The mini-series is an adaption of a 2015 investigative piece from ProPublica and The Marshall Project.
Netflix’s great miniseries #Unbelievable is two shows about sexual assault in one: the story of a young victim (Kaitlyn Dever) mistreated by the system, and a propulsive buddy cop thriller starring Merritt Wever & Toni Collette.
An internal review found that from 2008-2012, Lynnwood police deemed 10 of 47 rape claims reported to them “unfounded”—21.3 percent. Five times the national average for agencies covering similar-sized populations in that period.
Based on actual events; how rape claims are investigated, or not believed, by different kinds of cops. Brilliant, devastating, searing indictment of the “System.”Unbelievable Netflix
People are posting angry about the season knowing how bullshit cops treat victims of sexual assault. So many women don’t report their assaults because now they are treated by these men (and sometimes women) that are supposed to “protect”.
If you want to face how women who report sexual violence are treated by law enforcement, how they are humiliated, antagonized and abandoned by the legal system, and how sometimes it takes women to bring justice to women, then do watch Unbelievable Netflix
