The 'Central Park 5' Were Murderous Thugs

Despite the Left’s attempt to make them martyrs
By John Perazzo

Filmmaker Ava DuVernay’s new Netflix series, When They See Us, is being billed as an important exposé of the American criminal justice system's racist underbelly. As a review explains, it is the “riveting” story of how that system coerced and intimidated five innocent “teenage boys of color” into confessing to the highly publicized “rape and vicious assault of Trisha Meili, a white investment banker,” in New York's Central Park on April 19, 1989.

We are told that the boys - Kharey Wise, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, and Raymond Santana - tragically had “their youth snatched from them” by the false convictions and the subsequent prison sentences that they served. In a similar vein, another review lauds DuVernay for her success in “humanizing” these same “innocent young black and brown” victims of institutionalized “abuse, mistreatment and manipulation.” A New York Times headline depicts DuVernay's series as “The True Story of How a City in Fear Brutalized the Central Park Five.”

It's a story we've all heard many times before. And it is a damnable, disgusting lie.

Ava DuVernay’s racist propaganda film targeting whites, characterizes them as “disgusting” expressions of anti-black racism. DuVernay's interpretation of Trump's words, along with her whitewashing of the Central Park Five’s horrific crimes, demonstrate just how morally sick the modern Left has become.
