Generally in jail or in prison is where people who commit crimes belong.

that reminds me of this case where this child, I believe he was 12 at the time or around that age, killed his pregnant mom .. they held him as a juvenile for a little while and then released him .. years later he raped and killed this lady who he knew .. I think it was a family member .. an aunt but I'm not sure .. that little boy should have never been let out into society after he did that to his mother ..that little fker had the devil inside him and it never left

If you look at the evidence of this case, it’s clear that these guys were obviously guilty. The one guy whose DNA they actually had decided to say it was only him. Typical “don’t snitch” shit.

These guys were in the park that night attacking people. They beat the shit out of the female jogger and held her down and groped her while their friend raped her. They knew details about the attack that only the people involved would have known and they confessed and some of them even snitched. The jury that saw the case convicted them due to them clearly being guilty.

Anybody who thinks these guys were innocent didn’t look at the case at all.

I agree.

But have them go to jail for those crimes, not for something they didn't commit.

If you do the crime do the time.

But they did commit this crime. They attacked and sexually assaulted this woman. They didn’t leave semen because only one of the attackers actually had intercourse with her, but the others also beat her up, sexually assaulted her and held her down as the other guy raped her.

The only reason these obviously guilty guys got out was because the guy who left his semen on her followed the “no snitching” rule by lying to the police, saying that he acted alone.

The documentary, and now this mini-series are both quite powerful and incredibly depressing. Definitely worth the watch, but it's not an easy watch. It's difficult to see these young men imprisoned for something they didn't do, and unfortunate to see the persistence of lies and misinformation even after they have been exonerated.

They knew details about the attack that only the people involved would have known and they confessed and some of them even snitched. The jury that saw the case convicted them due to them clearly being guilty.

Anybody who thinks these guys were innocent didn’t look at the case at all.

Having read, watched and listened to evidence from both sides, as well as accounts from the prosecutors, police officers, judges, the five, their parents, their lawyers and others who were invested in the case, it's quite obvious that the Central Park Five did not beat, drag and rape Trisha Meili in April of 1989. It's also obvious that their confessions were false and coerced. Not only were their accounts wildly divergent, but they all placed themselves in a completely different area of central park from where Meili was assaulted.

The individual who confessed to the attack knew details of the attack and scene that he should not have been aware of, the drag pattern and footprints at the scene indicate that there was only one attacker, and investigators were able to find DNA on the victim at the scene that matched only one person... the attacker.

Lastly, the attacker confessed well after 4 of the 5 kids were released from prison, and confessed before he was identified. It was only until after he confessed (which apparently was a multi-tiered process in itself) that his DNA was compared to the case. The truth of the matter is that he had gone on to commit several more rapes and even a murder after his attack on Trisha Meili until he was caught in August of 1989. His MO during his other attacks mirrored his attack on Trisha Meili.

Is the focus on court case itself or what?

Does it get graphic? I don't like rape scenes. I watched Clockwork Orange, and I will never forget the rape scenes - they are like glued in my head. I can deal with them but I prefer to be ready for them if they are real graphic so I can fast-forward a bit
