The Central Park Five//Movie Review
I was watching Last Call with Carson Daly, and he interviewed 2 men out of the 5 that were wrongly accused of, and sentenced, to prison between 6-13 years. The Central Park Five is a documentary that examines the 1989 case of five black and Latino teenagers who were convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After having spent between 6 and 13 years each in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime.
If you are interested in documentaries, I would say to take a look at this one. Our legal
system is one that has always interested me and puzzled me at the same time.
Rules and mandates made by men centuries ago that are still followed in law, but
to me, cases then, are not, nor have the same predicaments that we do now.
It's astonishing that these 5 young men got bullied into
confessing to a crime because they were the scapegoats. Not because they were guilty.
But because they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
If you think justice was not served, wait until you hear what happened.
Remember this always: In the end, truth will always prevail and light will always be shown
in a dark place.
