Central Park 5 The role of Donald Trump VideoCentral Park Five prosecutor under fire again after Netflix series
The five were arrested after a year-old woman, Trisha Meili, was raped and beaten in Central Park, being found clinging to life in the the park in the early hours of 20 April Melli, who had been jogging in the park, survived her injuries but was in a coma for 12 days after the attack and spent seven weeks in hospital — and had no memory of what had happened to her.
Despite their confessions being inconsistent and there being no firm DNA evidence linking them to the crime or eyewitness accounts linking them to the assault, they were convicted, spending between six and 13 years in prison.
Getty Raymond Santana Jr. The Central Park Five — Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam and Korey Wise were all teens under 18 when they were convicted of raping Central Park jogger Trisha Meili.
In , they were exonerated after Matias Reyes confessed to raping Meili, which was confirmed by DNA evidence.
This is the ad Trump placed over the Central Park Five. I don't see anything wrong with it pic. At the time, Trump was a rising real estate businessman.
You can read the full text of the ad here. Then, there were numerous details that he seems to not recall. Her style of hair is one that really sticks out to me.
He claims to have been running behind her for so long. How could he not know her hair color and length? But he claims he attacked her alone.
There are multiple other issues with this story, as well. He claims that it was a SECOND chance meeting with Korey Wise, who he felt bad for since Wise was still incarcerated.
Their first meeting in jail was a coincidence. A second meeting years later is suspicious and highly unlikely.
Another question is this… Why would he feel bad for Korey Wise and not his victim Patricia Meili? He never reached out to her. He never apologized to her for having raped her.
Why is Wise more important than the victim? Perhaps because Wise knew Reyes was there that night which is why when they first met they got into a fistfight.
Reyes was known to some people as Rudy. So Oprah Winfrey decided to name these guys the Exonerated Five and wipe away the name the Central Park Five.
Many people love the name The Exonerated Five. The issue I have with that is that these guys were NEVER exonerated.
Their cases were vacated. There is a huge difference. What a vacated case is is when the convictions are erased due to newfound evidence.
This often leads prosecutors to retry the case with the new evidence. It simply means that jurors would be shown the new evidence alongside all the older evidence and would make a determination based on it all, together.
They had already served time for the worst of their crimes which means they did all the time they were ever going to do regardless of what the jury decided.
Remember there were at least 6 other victims that night. Several of them were beaten badly. Moreover, there was plenty of evidence to tie them to those beatings as well.
There is always a healthy amount of politics being played in the background of high profile cases.
The Central Park 5 case is no different in that regard. In fact, when they were trying to get a payout from the city of New York in their civil suit, they were denied by the Bloomberg administration because they knew that the case was nonsensical.
They knew what the case being vacated meant. As their story became part of the national conversation thanks to the popularity of the Netflix series, the Exonerated Five received a standing ovation at the BET Awards in July The Central Park 5: Where Are They Now?
