The Netflix thriller by Ava DuVernay, When They See Us, has sparked an outraged against the prosecutor who was lead in the Central Park 5 case. Where 5 innocent black males were forced to lie on each other, accusing the other of committing a rape in central park of a woman who was jogging, raped, and brutally beaten.
Once another man by the names of Reyes confessed to the crimes, and evidence back his confession, they were released, and awarded $41million. The prosecutor in the case, Linda Faristein had no evidence against the 5 boys, none at all. After serving in the law for years, she became a novelist, and no there are protest out against her books.
No evidence and still found guilty of a crime they did not commit, that is insane.
