The theory and evidence that did not support this case at all is crucial, especially for the innocence of the group. Elizabeth Lederer and Linda Fairstein, along with all the police officers that participated in this act should be held accountable for the youth years they took from the 5 man who were wrongfully convicted of the rap and assault of Trisha Meili . 41 million spilt between the 5 men of 8 million does not heal the abuse they experienced and the life tooken away from them! They deserve justice still and that's holding every person who wrongfully convicted them ACCOUNTABLE! Including the judge who let it go that far in the court room without any evidence whatsoever!

This has affected me on so many levels to which I never thought I would ever be. I am even more disgusted at the way the policing and politics are shown in its true form. No evidence but yet only to convict on the statement from a minor without the presence of a guardian. This is how we know the law is the first source of corruption.

A group of kids judged and sentenced based on their ethnicity. A case guided by people like Lederer and Fairstain who instead of defining the meaning of justice with actions through the position they had, let themselves be led by the racist history of society even when there was no actual prove on the case relating the kids to the crime scene. And they continued to live life accepting awards and getting promoted only until it is pointed out to them. A public apology from them should've been given to Richardson, McCray, Salaam, Santana, and Wise. Not that it would mean a thing now that that also had to be addressed and not genuinely given.

Because I have children who will grow up here and need not face injustice like these young people suffered and still are affected by - and no human being should ever be taught by these corrupt, unjust people insensitive to truth , setting up people for horror and failure , unable to show human kindness and compassion . Love is in need of Love ❤️

These 2 women showed poor judgement and acted unethically. They should be held as examples of the way the justice system can fail when ethics are not maintained.

She is not a role model! She should be banned from Earth! She is the reason why 5 innocent kids were wrongfully convicted and she has the audacity to call the docuseries a lie! Well you were wrong anyway and do not feel any remorse for that
