    He didn't falsely confess, he confessed, and now is lying, pretty simple, they did it, then they pretended they didn't in order to be freed and get money from the State, which they did.

      And you said they did it to get money from the state? Yes, someone went to jail for fun to get raped and beaten up every day to get money from the state. You see how dumb you sound? They were literally you understand how bad being registered as a sex offender is. You can’t even get a job. If that guy didn’t confess, these men would’ve never had a future. So everything your saying is bs.

      are you dumb? Nobodies confessions matched, the dna didn’t match, there was no evidence. Where did they even decide it was 5 people? Do you know how often people are falsely convicted of crimes? Especially teenagers because most of us don’t know what else to do. And even if he didn’t confess he would’ve went through the same shit just like Kalief Browder. Confessions don’t mean shit. By your logic, a serial killer can lie and say he didn’t do it and then they should let him free even if his dna matches. That’s why people like Ted Bundy were able to become serial killers.

      Dan 123 I actually don't have the energy for you. I know their innocent, 99% of he world know their innocent. If that's not enough to make you think that you're actually in the wrong then nothing I say will make you think nor will you listen. Fuck you sir, have a shitty life.

      @Jack P "They test her hair and blood", duh, if they test her hair and blood of course it wouldn't match their DNA, you don't know what you're talking about, now you're just making stuff up, there are mentions of semen testing in her cervix, I read everything on this case there is to read, from 1989 to today, they never mention testing of under her nails or anything like that, hair, squat, you're lying to support criminals, it makes me sick, fuck you.

      @Rebelecca A Today there would be, it was 1989, they looked for semen inside her cervix, as per their own confessions, there was no semen in her cervix since they didn't ejaculate inside her. Nowadays they look for hair, skin cells under nails, etc. They would've found lots of DNA.

      Joy Hasan believe all women? The women never said they did it. It was the fucking detectives. Y’all say believe all women but allowed Brett Kavanaugh to be a Supreme Court Justice. What kind of bs
