The Story of The Central Park Five

The 1989 sentencing of five black and Latino teenagers to years in prison for a rape and assault that they did not commit is one of the most infamous miscarriages of justice in modern history. This is the story of the Central Park Five.

    Add it to the list of reasons I'll never vote for Trump. What an arrogant and heartless human being.

    President Trump has repeatedly commented on the Central Park Five — before and after they were exonerated. Here is a timeline of what he has said: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2019/06/19/what-trump-has-said-central-park-five/1501321001/

    In all cases, in his view, there are people on both sides. Mostly good people on his side. And then the ''stuff'' hits the fan and it becomes the role and job of the press secretary to come up with some type of story, lie, fiction, alternative truth, ....to clean up the mess.

    This orange haired buffoon never apologize for nothing. He once stated, when asked by a reporter, that he never had to ask God for forgiveness, about anything. Yet, these delusional, so call christian, followers of his still support him but dislike Obama. And they say it's not about race?

    How did THIS turn into bashing our President? He didn't accuse them, he didn't incarcerate them, he didn't force them to say they did it. Grow up, and if you dont like our President, get the fuck out of the country. MY country doesn't need self serving, ass hat, opinionated cry babies. EVERYONE makes mistakes, does and says things they shouldn't have. Go ahead. Say you're perfect. I'll wait.....

    Trump is just a creep. We all make mistakes. We grow when we admit to them
