    Ken Burns does it again with this story of one of the worst miscarriages of justice in the history of New York and the USA. The racism and corruption of the police department that did this and then took accolades for their horrendous lies to the accused boys and to the court under oath says it all!

    Stunning and shocking re how far the police will go to "solve" a high profile crime. Its very sad that the 5 had to fulfill the sentences which ranged from 6.5 - 13yrs, as the truth came out afterwards. They truly deserve a settlement from the city/police force.

    An outstanding documentary. The hatred, the corruption. unbearence of the people. non-importance of both lives -victim and so-called victims-. laws of jungle which happen everyday, Still not happy of the end of the case but nice realisation and efforts to contribute.

    Brutal. Sad. Frustrating. Irritating. Simple evidence was completely ignored all for a very racially-charged indictment and prosecution. There aren't enough Law & Order episodes to compare to something this repulsively true. While longer than I believe it needed to be, it's still very well constructed and told.

    Expect to get frustrated as hell watching this, the interviews with the men involved are emotional, frustrating and just show how powerful vigilante style justice can be, and how many years it stole from these young men in the primes of their lives. a great watch.

    A detailed documentary showing the how the lives of five innocent black and Latino teenagers were damaged by the US criminal (in)justice system.

    For fans of Making A Murder, Serial, and those interested in the flaws of the American law and justice systems. Genuinely made me sad at several parts but I was uplifted by the ability of the human spirit to stay true through the toughest trials and tribulations.

    In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers were arrested and charged for brutally attacking and raping a white female jogger in Central Park. News media called the case "the crime of the century." But the truth about what really happened didn't become clear until after the five had spent years in prison for a crime they didn't commit.n
