Donald Trump continues to brutalize the Central Park 5, years after they were exonerated, and another man conclusively identified as the perpetrator of the horrific crime.
The underlying crime was shocking. As CNN summarized:
“A 28-year-old banker who had been jogging at night in Central Park was raped, bludgeoned with a rock and was found hours later, tied up, stripped and suffering from hypothermia and brain damage.A group of five teenage boys who were in the park at the time and who may have been involved in committing other crimes were arrested for the assault. After extended questioning over two days — during which the suspects claim they were deprived of sleep and food — police say they confessed to the crime. None acknowledged actually raping the victim, instead pointing fingers at the others.
“They admitted they were guilty. The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same.”
