Murphy has put an enormous focus on the police department of Wisconsin as well as the justice system. Questions have been asked to know the reason for the freedom of Dahmer after the murders. Moreover, this show emphasizes more on privileges enjoyed by the whites. It also shows how Dahmer took advantage of these privileges for convincing the police as well as the judges. Moreover, he makes them look from a different perspective when gets convicted for crimes. Hence, they are setting him free for committing such dreadful murders.

Moreover, the series will depict the entire story of killer Jeffery Dahmer until his arrest in the year 1991. Thus, it will begin the story from the 60s and will go on with the 70s and 80s.

However, as mentioned earlier that Murphy always stays loyal when it comes to depicting true-life stories. Nevertheless, we can expect some drama to happen in Monster. Somewhere things might also be fictional but in a decent way. Moreover, a little bit of new material will be able to put the entire story together.
