Interview With 'Making a Murderer' Prosecutor Ken Kratz Shows How Cray He Still Is

Making A Murderer's prosecutor Ken Kratz seemed like a pretty big d*ck in the true crime series, but here he is, almost a decade later, admitting to being a d*ck -- back then. The problem? He still seems like a d*ck to me. 


Comedian Jena Friedman sat down for a one-on-one interview with Kratz for Gothamist. In the interview, he admits that he did not come across as the most likeable human in the Netflix series:

I was a d*ck. Some of that was bravado that was necessary for the presentation of the case but some of that was me. And I think it's important that people understand that I'm not that person anymore.

Really, dude? So let me get this straight. People's lives, mainly that of Brendan Dassey (because I think we can all agree that Steven Avery probably isn't innocent), are hanging in the balance, and you act all Law & Order ... but now you wanna play take-backsies? Let's remember that Dassey was charged with first-degree intentional homicide and is serving a life sentence. 

Kratz also states that if he could do anything differently, he wouldn't have read Brendan Dassey's criminal complaint on March 2, 2006, after Dassey was charged.

The entire interview is just weird, and not only because Kratz blames some of his d*ckishness on his astrological sign, which he says has changed -- just like him:

For the first 35 years of my life, I was a Leo, and then they decided that July 23 was really in Cancer instead of Leo.

But when Friedman attempts to play a game of "F**k, Marry, Kill," that's when the whole thing gets super creepy, with Kratz accusing his interviewer of having a crush on Dean Strang (one of Avery's lawyers who is also featured in the documentary). 

Friedman than asks, "If you were to sext me, what adjectives would you use?" Kratz replies: 

The respect that I have for all women doesn't allow me to go down that road at all.

Kratz repeatedly sexted an abuse victim while prosecuting her ex-boyfriend. (That's why he had to step down as a prosecutor and become a defence attorney.) In the video, he seems almost creepily insincere about the respecting-women bit.  

Kratz also says he isn't as charming as Ted Bundy was.  

Still a d*ck? I rest my case.
