Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer, popularly known as the Milwaukee Cannibal or the Milwaukee Monster, was a sex offender and serial killer who murdered and dismembered seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Many of his later crimes involved necrophilia, cannibalism, and the long-term preservation of body parts. Netflix’s latest crime drama series, “Dahmer-Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” is based on his heinous crimes.

TMZ reports, that the prosecutor who placed Jeffrey Dahmer behind prison is speaking out against the narrative presented in Netflix’s new program. They stated that because the case involved gay and/or Black people, cops ignored obvious clues. In the 1990s, former Milwaukee District Attorney Michael McCann personally prosecuted Dahmer.

Despite what “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story” shows, he told the outlet that the idea that MPD officers turned a blind eye to Dahmer’s victims because of their race or sexual orientation is ridiculous. The true crime drama is currently generating a lot of discussions. While McCann hasn’t seen it yet but he is aware of how Netflix and others are playing things.

Throughout the episodes, he claims they are anti-cop and tilt toward alleged racial and homophobic bias. McCann flatly denies that characterization, claiming that neither race nor sexual orientation influenced how police investigated Dahmer. He argues that if they had realized they were dealing with a serial killer, they would have moved in quickly to put a stop to it, regardless of the victims’ backgrounds.

He argues that Dahmer’s method of operation simply did not allow them to learn the truth any sooner than they did in 1991 when one of his victims fled and led cops to Dahmer’s apartment. McCann observed that Dahmer did not leave much clear evidence and did a good job of covering his tracks. He also believes that the fact that Dahmer’s victims were men has something to do with the fact that women who went missing at the time were investigated by assuming the worst.

On racism and homophobia in general, he agrees that it has historically been an issue in law enforcement but remains adamant that it played no role in how officers handled Dahmer. Of course, not everyone will buy what McCann is selling here, especially after Glenda Cleveland, played by Niecy Nash, repeatedly warned Milwaukee PD about Dahmer’s actions before he was eventually captured. As she was Black, many suspicious cops dismissed her.

The majority of Dahmer’s 17 victims were also Black, and the show portrays cops as disgusted by the gay lifestyle. That, however, is Hollywood fiction, according to McCann. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
