Plaintiff who set Jeffrey Dahmer Behind Bars counters the narrative that Netflix puts forward in its new show — that is, the cops ignore the obvious clues because the case is about gay and/or black people.
Previous Milwaukee DA Michael McCann — who sued Dahmer personally in the 1990s — told TMZ… The notion that MPD officers turned a blind eye to Dahmer’s victims because of their race or sexual orientation is absurd, despite what “The Beast: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” depicted.
True crime dramas are getting a lot of buzz right now, and while McCann says he hasn’t seen it yet… he’s aware of how Netflix and its partners are doing. They play things – very anti-cop and tend to be racist and homophobic throughout the episodes.
McCann categorically denies this characterization, saying that neither race nor sexual orientation influenced how police investigated Dahmer. He insists that if they had known they had a serial killer in their midst, they would have immediately moved to put an end to it… regardless of the victims’ backgrounds.
He explains that MO Dahmer simply didn’t allow them to discover the truth any sooner than they did in 1991 – when one of his victims escaped and brought the cops to Damer apartment.
McCann notes that Dahmer did not leave much clear evidence about him, and he covered his tracks well.
He also thinks there is something to the fact that Dahmer’s victims were men – he says the women who went missing at the time were investigated assuming the worst. On racism and homophobia in general, he admits that it has historically been a problem with law enforcement…but he still insists that it played no role in how officers dealt with Dahmer.
Of course, not everyone will buy what they’re selling here… especially knowing how Glenda Cleveland – played before Niecy Nash Milwaukee alerted PD to Dahmer’s behavior several times before he was eventually caught. Several police suspects crossed out her because she was black.
Most of Dahmer’s 17 victims were also black, and the show portrays policemen as angry at the gay lifestyle. According to McCann, this is a Hollywood fantasy. 🤷🏽♂️
