The Central Park Five ò A riveting in depth account of one of New York City’s most notorious crimesOn April 20 1989 the body of a woman is discovered in Central Park her skull so badly smashed that nearly 80 percent of her blood has spilled onto the ground Within days five black and Latino teenagers confess to her rape and beating In a city where urban crime is at a high and violence is freuent the ensuing media frenzy and hysterical public reaction is I watched this documentary a few months ago and just finally got around to reading the book Sarah Burns goes into great detail into what actually took place in 1989 While I don't believe these kids were angels by any stretch of the imagination I do believe it is absolutely disgusting how NYPD could coerce these minors into confessing to a crime they did not commit I can see how you could jump to conclusions seeing as how these kids were running around rampant in the park that night but when you have DNA evidence that does not match any of the suspects as well as just arresting another man who committed the exact same crimes around the park numerous times before I mean come on I also don't understand how as a parent you would not have an attorney present before talking to detectives let alone allowing your children to confess to a crime they did not commit just because they wanted to go home The District Attorney was no better trying to make a name for herself with such a high profile case It's stories like this that make people lose faith in our judicial system everyday To those detectives as well as the DA I say shame on you Ebook Ñ The Central Park Five ä Sarah Burns

Sarah Burns ä The Central Park Five Reader Olice officers the district attorneys the victim and Matias Reyes Sarah Burns unravels the forces that made both the crime and its prosecution possible Most dramatically she gives us a portrait of a city already beset by violence and deepening rifts between races and classes whose law enforcement government social institutions and media were undermining the very rights of the individuals they were designed to safeguard and protect In the time of the Black Lives Matter movement this book about the 1989 case against the so called Central Park Five is tragically relevant Because of racist prejudice five boys are convicted for the horrible attack on a female jogger The book is interesting and very sober It tells the story clearly and without too much fuzz I read it after having watched When They See Us on Netflix about the case and it was good to get a bit deeper in the story Luckily all five men are free today Unluckily they are scarred for life Hopefully this is the time where we will understand the value of human life and that it’s value is not dependent on the color of your skin
