When They See Us- Movie Review

Movie Review: When They See Us (Netflix)- The Central Park Five

One night in April 1989, a young white woman who had been jogging was bludgeoned, raped and left for dead in Central Park, New York, United States. The evidence suggested that the crime had been committed by one man, but Linda Fairstein, head of the sex crimes unit of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office ignored credible leads and insisted that, even though the timeline and evidence did not match, it had to be 5 of the 30 black teens that had been in the park later that night.
