'Zero to life' attempts to answer the question of how 21-year-old Lisl Auman was sent to prison for life for a murder committed by Matthaeus Jaehnig, a crazed skinhead whom she barely knew. She was handcuffed in the back of a police car at the time of the killing..... it became clear to (the reporter) that when a policeman is murdered, justice goes out the window. At least two police officers lied about Auman's actions; the district attorney repeated and amplified their lies in court... This is an example of prosecutorial malice and dishonesty..."
