    This is a great production and I can feel the pain of these men every day. It is hard to imagine the grief and lifetime of pain these guys will carry for the remainder of their lives.It's frightening to understand that this happens and could happen to any black man in America today. I can't imagine that the United States government can make horrible mistakes time after time when it comes down to being black in America.
    Freedom is important to some, but everything to Black Americans, because we seem to have to always and forever watch our backs and fight to protect our freedom based on how society SEE'S US. It's hard to live in an environment where your freedom is always attacked and stands in question as if we're under some sort of bounty like slaves in the market place.
    I think that the District Attorney Linda Fairstein and the Manhattan District Attorney's office including the judge should be brought up on charges criminal charges for what they did and allowed to happen to these men.
    This should be a powerful message to all District Attorney's around the globe, stop trying to win cases an seek the TRUTH. The time they lost can never be paid off or returned to them. Being Black is NOT a crime in other countries so why is it a crime in America?

    That brother on the far right is gone. He was in Rikers as a child. God only knows what happened to him, our minds can imagine. That's why he has that look in his eyes. He's got some serious brain damage that can't be repaired with money.

    20/20 running this couple weeks ago showing how that nite in Central Park was terrifying n to put a false confession on somebody n roll with that knowing the evidence, the truth pointed away from the five just showing how corrupt n immoral our justice system can be onto a skin color, these are the moments I am terrified for our country that they can go off a lie n take ur entire being away n throw away the key is something I will NVR comprehend ever!

That nite in the park was crazy, but them getting a lie, a false confession put on them cus they were scared n wanted to go home, n even though all the evidence was there that they did not do this, that one person could literally lie about u n u can get falsely accused n locked up, is one of the scariest n worse crimes lawyers n cops corruption could do, the damages they betrayed on too a skin color is immoral n disgusting as America could get! Innocent til proven otherwise is a crock of shit!

    They should have refused to do this with Oprah, after she signed of LG on the MJ doc that should have been her done, these guys are the perfect example of being wrongfully accused of a sex crime and that is the same in the MJ case. She’s now “saved face” in the Black community because they did this interview with her.

    Corruption is still real. If you are black, poor, or disabled. Free attorney’s don’t help. I am in tears when I see what was done to the men. I want to know how anyone lives with themselves setting up children and destroying there lives. Karma is a bitch. The police , the prosecutor, everyone involved will face Reaping what they sew ten fold. But it can never change what was done. Sending healing ❤️ Love 💗 to these men. Is it too late to hold people accountable.

    So........I haven't watched TV or Netflix in years but my mom highly recommended this to me and I'm glad I did. First of all, my respect to those guys, being able to survive and then even making something out of their lives. Second of all; at the end of the movie it doesn't say anything about prosecution against the officers who lead the case and abusively (and I'm not completely up to date with American law, but it seems illegaly as well) have coerced these children at the time to sign their own sentence. Anyone know anything about that?

It is crazy that ppl can do what they want like this and no one gose to jail. It is unbelievable. Kory out of all of the 5 that did not do this crime i feel his pain and suffering the most. I wish all of them the best and a happy life. But we worried about immigration and everything else but cases like this supersedes anything that we have to think about. Because at the end of the day this country won't get better that falsely putting people away for crimes they did not commit.

I remember back then she believed they were guilty now she wants to give them a platform and pretend like she cares please? I am on to this skinny fat bitch. Nope Oprah your still not invited to the family cookout in the black community. Girl bye we still haven't forgotten how you tried to bring down Michael Jackson's legacy with that shitty ass interview you did with those lying shitheads. With that said Oprah gets no love from me ever.
    I pray for those brothers healing especially Kory's but Oprah dont care about you brothers at all.

    I didn’t like this interview with Oprah, she was asking non relevant hurtful questions specially to kory and Antron when he got a bit emotional Oprah was just pushing him like to get more emotion but he was clearly having a hard time and she didn’t show any respect. Ava on the other hand, wonderful human being and she also saved him from one of Oprah’s morbid questions.

  • Ana Druzijanic

    Here is an example how Oprah is guided by lust, greed and money. She would do anything to get her story sold. Anything for money.
    In 1993, she interviewed Michael Jackson. Interview was the most watched interview in history.
    In 2005, during Michael’s trial, she made a tv show about pedophilia.
    In 2009, when Michael died, she sympathized, interviewing Lisa Marie, his family including his mother and children.
    In 2019, she “changed” her mind again by promoting LN lies.
    One word: Shameless

    Does anyone know which gang Korey Wise was with while in prison? Was it a more well established gang like the Bloods or Crips or was it only a prison gang? I'm writing a paper on the Central Park Rapers and I'm including a paragraph about Korey Wise's gang that threatened to kill Reyes if he didn't confess to the rape and not mention he saw the Central Park Five also sexually assaulting Trisha Meili in the park. I'm finding very little information on their lives in the penitentiary.

    I think she's trying really hard to try to distance herself from the backlash she's gotten from leaving Neverland from her wiping Harvey Weinstein's ass. That she's getting from Michael Jackson fans and the African American Community abroad. She needs to just take her huge stack of moldy money and go away and retire. She was always putting down shows like Howard Stern and Jerry Springer back in the day but she's basically doing the same thing. only difference is her audience doesn't chant out her name or flash her!

    What is wrong with everyone?? Why so many hateful comments about Oprah?? This is not about her, it’s about these 5 men & giving them a platform to tell their story for once. For so long, these men didn’t have a voice. So many pple jumped to conclusions & falsely wrote & accused them of things they never committed. Instead of making this about something else, can we please focus on their story??
    This series highlights so many injustices in our legal system, & it has the power to make real change. Our prison system is designed to criminalize pple & make it nearly impossible to get ahead in life once an inmate is released. Kids are being tried as adults & places in adult prisons, where they fear for their lives. Many kids have to stay in solitary confinement to protect them from the other inmates - and solitary confinement can make anyone lose their mind. It’s not a place for a child. It does not help them reform & become productive members of society.
    There’s also a real problem in our country with the way police work with the District Attorney’s office to create a case. There are numerous cases where police have coerced false confessions because of pressure by the prosecutors & DA, who are incentivized on their convictions & being “tough on crime”. Prosecutors are basically immune from lawsuits, so there’s no check by the law system on their prosecutorial abuses. They receive all of the evidence from the police, & they can choose whether to disclose some evidence or not - which is bad for the defendant if that evidence proves their innocence. The defense attorney & prosecutor are supposed to be equal, but they’re not. Prosecutors hold all the power & make all of the decisions regarding cases, & if that person really needs a high-profile conviction to get re-elected, they can & have abused that power. It’s a messed up system, & this series exposes it. These boys deserve a good life. They have a right to freedom. Let them have it. Thank u Oprah for making this series! It is a necessary film!

    • B-Dub

      Jim Creek what are u talking about?? They weren’t proven money grabbers. Where did u get that from?? If anything, this entire experience has almost ruined their lives. Wade Robson is one of the most successful choreographers in the world. He’s doing just fine financially. So, plz don’t give me that.
      If u watched Oprah’s interview with them, u would see that the only reason she did it was to discuss this incessant evil happening every day with our kids. That film showed what child molestation really looks like & how it affects everyone involved. She also said that the film is bigger than MJ & it shouldn’t be about whether u think he did it or not. It’s about those men telling their story. It also helps parents & others be more aware of what predators look like & how they seduce the family & child. Child sexual abuse doesn’t typically involve violence, & it’s very subtle & can be difficult to detect. It’s about seduction & that is something she’s been trying to explain to her viewers for 30yrs. She knew she was going to receive a lot of hate from doing that interview because MJ is a global icon. But that is what makes the entire situation even more complicated. Is celebrity above criminality? Can an icon be a con? Nobody knew the real MJ. We only knew the pop star, & I get it, we all have a special place in our heart for MJ & his music. But that is his music, not him. Think about it. If those men said someone else (who was not MJ) did those things to them, would u feel different? I bet u would. Did u even watch the film??

    Do you need to be stupid to believe the garbage about these evil, violent thugs being railroaded? Absolutely you do, but being stupid and black would make it almost irresistible. These thugs beat their victim so badly, they thought they had beaten her to death. When arrested one cried how he didn't mean to kill her, and said he didn't fuck her, he just fondled her unconscious body, what a charmer, definitely a poor victim of racism. These guys were black youths, out to terrorise, beat and steal, they were not innocent kids going for an evening stroll. These angry, violent young men targeted their victims like a pack of jackals looking for weak prey, and the guy who owned up to raping the woman, the one who, said he ran towards the sound of a woman screaming, to get in on the fun, the one whose semen was recovered from her body, only made his admissions when he was moved to an area in the New York prison, where one of the "Exonerated" (what an utter lie) five, just happened to be the the head of the Black Gang in the prison, (strange role for an innocent child to find himself in) so to not go along with anything he demanded would mean one hellish nasty death. That these five attacked and beat the woman was never challenged, and throughout the trial it was always stated that the semen found on the woman was not from these five, so the fact that the person whose semen it was eventually came forward, changed nothing about the actual facts of their trial. The whole sorry saga is a massive indictment of the insanity of modern PC, social justice warrior lunacy, where these animals receive celebrity status, and massive compensation for nearly beating a woman to death. "But I wasn't the one who raped her blood soaked body, so give me millions of dollars for only beating her mercilessly." Sounds reasonable if you are an idiot liberal that believes the ridiculous lies of the fantasists that made this load of garbage for entertainment of the gullible.
