The Central Park Five.

These were five Black and Latino kids who are now adults, who were arrested in 1989, and later wrongfully convicted of the rape of a white woman in New York’s Central Park.  I saw a documentary about these brave individuals a few weeks that definitely moved me, and shows just how flawed the justice system is in America.  These kids who were in their mid teens at this time, spent between 6 to 12 years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit, and was  later confessed by a serial rapist, later having the conviction overturned. New York City owes these brothers for what they took away from them.
