    Kevin was and is a rapist thug. What is it like to hug a rapist? Watch the interrogation tapes, when did they tell him that if he confessed, that he could just "go home." Also, he has two "sweet little girls." Does he tell them that they should go jogging on the park?

    If you watch the interviews with the boys and then watch the Netflix special you will see all the nonsense. That Netflix special is so full of lies and untruths it's sickening. I can't believe people think these guys are innocent. It just goes to show that nobody reads or does their own research.

      freethinker3161 You’re assuming too idiot! And second, I’VE DONE MY FUCKING RESEARCH ALL THE DAMN WAY!! You’re are a total jerk. If I were to meet the EXONERATED FIVE, (yes they are called that now AND with RESPECT), I would give them a chance to tell me their stories. Unlike YOU. You would listen to people like Linda Fairstein, Elizabeth Lederer, and our current was-always-a-racist POTUS Donald Trump, and other law enforcement officials. So yes, I can believe what I want. And so can you. People like you can be a waste of the men’s time. 🙄

      @Grace Kincade yeah there's no evidence to suggest they were coerced. They recorded all of the interviews. Their parents were there for every interview. They were read their rights, and the only reason they found out about the jogger was because one of the idiots with the scratches on his face told them about it.

      @Tpring Banks they did not question them without parents and if it was a bunch of white kids who had beaten up a young black girl the precinct wud hav been flooded with blacks screaming for justice. Ur treating these street thugs like victims and ignoring the rape victim who lost 80% of her blood those idiots are lucky she did not die. Plus the defence that they were beating up joggers but not the female jogger is pathetic as it was in the same park. And Yusef Salam took the witness stand and admitted walking around with a pipe but he did not hit anyone do u believe that bullshit. Also do u that they had the viciousness to beat up John Laughin a adult former marine but as soon as they get into a police station and they are questioned by a female DA they wilt and become terrified kids

      @Jay Blair Why do yo believe it was so cut and dry and so easy. Reading rights to a bunch of 14 ,15 year old teenagers is like reading the ingredients from a snickerdoodle!! Reading rights to you, yet questioning you for several hours before your parents arrive should not have happened. NYPD knows the truthand again it cost them 41 million dollars. They did not so their job correct. I hope they learn their lesson. This is not the first time this has happened. The. Public would have seen much more of the truth but the city settled.

    This was good to see. There was no DNA match to these guys and no evidence to support. The attorneys knew this going into trial. It was said for the jury to hear. I don’t comprehend for the life of me how these guys testimonies even made any type of sense as the jury watched. I watched all of the testimonies. They are contradicting each other on these confessions. They make no sense. I’m mad at that one juror who did t stick to his gut about the discrepancies of the confessions. Everyone needs to go back and dig deeper. See the truth.

      @jay63811 : And you are a real racist bastard. Those guys did not rape that woman and there is no proof that they committed any crimes. DNA does not lie. I guess that it was okay for the white guys who killed others in El Paso, Dayton, Stoneman Douglass, Charleston, SC, Kroger's in Kentucky, the Pittsburgh synagogue, Las Vegas, Aurora, Colorado, OKC Bombing, and these killings were done by white terrorist thugs, many who are racist. That is a fact about these guys. And I guess this does not matter to you, huh? These guys are white and you will defend these devils no matter what. Multi killings are done by these guys with automatic weapons. Who the hell are you to say the black culture has no work ethic, asswipe? There are real bad people in all races and cultures, shithead. There are just as many white people by percentage as many black and other races of people who have kids out of wedlock. Taking about a worse enemy? Ever since you came onto this thread, you just really exposed yourself as a real foolish little man. You will defend the indefensible. If the CP5 were white and the rape victim was black, they would be doing a background check on the victim and the white guys would be called guys who have mental health problems instead of thugs. What evidence do you have that these guys were gangbangers? They were never in trouble with the law until 1989. I also guess that you forgot about slavery and segregation. It is folks like you that is the reason why racism and bigotry exists. So do us all a favor: Stop exposing yourself as a complete idiot!

    • jay63811
      jay63811 2 months ago

      @Candice Yates that is absolutely not true it all. The way the so-called Central Park five or trade in the movie was completely false. These boys are straight-up thug gang bangers. Two of which were arrested prior to the rape. They stated we didn't rape her we just held her down and touched her breasts. That's what got them on the radar. we keep forgetting that there were several other horrific crimes committed by them that night, that would have put them away for a long long time. The thug korey wise, the one you guys pretend he's retarded, went around bragging about what he did. some of the people he bragged to testified against them in court. But it just doesn't matter to you. They are "black" and for that reason alone you will defend them no matter what. It's disgusting and it's racist of you. You want them to be innocent so badly for that reason. if these boys were white in the victim was black you would still be on here, and you would be defending the woman that got raped. Stop pretending everybody's out to get black people. You are your own worst enemy. Your culture is killing you not your skin color. Stop having kids out of marriage, stop telling your kids their victims from the day they're born and instill a strong work ethic in them. If black people are such victims then why do African immigrants come here with $2 in their pockets and prosper

    I implore everyone to take the time and listen to ALL of the confessions. There is no way all of those confessions are false.

They were never exonerated

      @The Outhwaite3: Lederer also said that a hair sample on Raymond Santana was consistent with the jogger. When that sample was retested with the rest of the evidence, it was not a match with the jogger. All of the clothing the jogger wore was retested and it only matched one guy. Reyes. That sixth person stuff was bullshit. If there was a so called 6th person, then why in the hell did they stop looking for him? This so-called 6th person, which I do not believe Reyes is, was a lone ranger. He raped one woman 2 days before the he raped the jogger and after that, he went on to rape 4 other women, one of them he murdered while that women's kids hid in another room in her home. Now, to show you that the DNA spoke volumes, why didn't anyone of the CP5 mention Reyes in these bogus ass confessions? DNA does not lie. Those damn sorry ass cops did the lying. Understand this: DNA is more advanced now and it can test very small specs of blood, semen, saliva, and so on. Want really pisses me off about you CP5 haters is that you have not condemned the known rapist who raped at least six women and murdered one of them. Reyes is a sociopath and should never be let out of prison. You guys can stay in denial with your silly ass gymnastics trying to twist the facts. The truth came out and if you cannot deal with that, too damn bad!

      @GreenLife 4Eva you are either a liar or just severely ignorant, white people do not commit crime at the same level is black people. That's just the way it is, it's not the skin color it's the culture that causes it. You're not having 70 white shootings every night in the city of Chicago, you are in the black neighborhood.
      as for blacks being punished more harshly for the same crime that is an old lie, in fact, it is quite the opposite. Let's say John is white and lives in the suburbs, he has a crack rock on him and stabbed by the suburban police. HE WILL GO TO JAIL. Now let's say John is a black guy in the inner City same situation, nothing will happen to him. The officer will confiscate the and he will be let go. The police in the city don't have time to deal with petty crime because of all the other crimes being committed.

      Dan 123 The evidence and research you’re looking up is false. Look at the confession tapes. And try to watch Ken Burns’s documentary The Central Park Five. The confession tapes shows that they don’t know what they were talking about, they said that she wore blue shorts with a tank top. SHE DID NOT. She was wearing long black tight running pants with a long sleeve white shirt. They said they hit her with a brick or a pipe. IT WAS A ROCK. The DNA evidence was conclusive because it was ONE PERSON BY HIMSELF AND IT DOESN’T MATCH NONE OF THE FIVE MEN!!! People like you and the police and prosecutors that just swept them under the rug need to SIT DOWN AND SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! 🙄🤬

The DNA did not match the CP5. It matched one man and one man only. That man raped 6 women, one of them was the jogger. This son of a bitch killed one of them while her kids hid in another room in her home. This is the M.F. you should be pissed off at. The CP5 did not rape this woman. Mattias Reyes did. The DNA broke this case wide open. I trust forensic science. DNA locks up the guilty every damn day as well as exonerates the innocent. I am pissed off at the prosecutors and the cops who railroaded these guys. The DNA told all. I hope that those prosecutors and those cops involved in this case catch pure T hell from the public for years and years to come. I do not believe a damn thing that is coming out of their lips.

I swear that you guys are some real sorry ignorant ass screwballs. Please stay away from Fox News and Trump rallies. Both tend to rattle and fry one's brain. The DNA told all. It matched only one person. There were also one set of footprints at that crime scene. And yet, you believe this laughable idiot cop who has been caught into at lease 3 or 4 lies in this interview. You damn fools should be pissed at Mattias Reyes who not only raped the jogger, but at least 5 other women as well. He murdered one of those women while her kids hid in another room in her home. You really need to get into reality instead of being stuck into fantasy land. DNA does not lie. #Exonarated 5: #Railroaded by Crooked Cops and D.A's!
