I watched 2,5 episodes last night. I was so angry, especially whenever Linda Fairstein was on screen, the lead attorney for the prosecution, Elizabeth Lederer, wasn't much better.

The boys were so scared, they said anything the police wanted to know because they believed them they'd go home, I cannot believe the cops and prosecution got away with this considering no DNA found at the scene matched any of them.

I just finish series last night and damn, Korey's episode got me the most since he got it worst than anyone else since he was put as adult to go to jail.. Plus those detectives and whoever involve, I hope that they got fired or know their name.. ugh..

Also, can I say, I don't like Raymond's stepmom and his father since he never stand up for his own son.. Ugh..

I'm emotionally preparing myself to finish the show. I'll probably watch the rest tomorrow.

I heard Korey's episode is the toughest.

I think Raymond's father just didn't know how to handle the situation, neither did Tron's. It was too much for them. My heart broke for Raymond's grandma, she must have felt so guilty that she left her grandson alone with the police officers.

Yeah, Korey's episode was really tough to watch, but damn..

Actually, it seems that Raymond's grandmother who did all the things more than his own father since the mother is out of the pic.. But yeah, his grandmother mention about how she can stand up and all that if she knew how to speak English.. But ugh.. I hate how they stole their childhood/teenager hood like that..

Yeah. nothing can ever compensate what they've been through. They ruined their childhoods, traumatized and put them through hell. Kevin Richardson was only 14 when they arrested them.

There's a great article on The New York Times from a few days ago and Richardson said this

Quote:
PTSD is real and I go through that. People might think on the outside looking in that I’m doing swell because we got the settlement. That doesn’t erase the time that I did. We always say we have invisible scars nobody sees. And no matter how you cover it, the scab will keep coming off.
The Central Park Five: ‘We Were Just Baby Boys’

In it the real Raymond also talks about his father.

I know since I think that both of them were 14 years old since I look up on the innocent project site, but damn..

I agree about PTSD since I dunno why some act like it wasn't that big deal and they need to get over w/ it..

Ahh, thanks.. It sound like it was his grandmother who practically raised him more than his father even tho they have good relationship, but still not the same..

Yeah, both Kevin and Raymond were 14.

Yeah, some people seem to think all pain and trauma has been erased because their verdict was overturned. It doesn't work like that.

It does and the step-mom wasn't supportive either quite the contrary.

I've finished two episodes and the episodes have brought out such conflicting emotions, both so much anger/frustration and also sadness for these boys. They were thoroughly robbed of so many years of their lives, had their family lives shattered just because a ruthless/heartless bunch of lawmakers were racist, had their own political agendas and didn't give a damn about them.

Yeah and the most frustrating thing is that we know this injustice is still happening today.
