Those 5 teens were up to no good in Central Park. They were a wolf pack, predators looking for a victim.
Just as Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, and Mumia Abu Jamal, they had no solid alibi; meaning, they were right THERE at the scene of the crime.
'Nuff said about these hoaxers.

In the 1930s, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't have been grounds for excluding the evidence. Sweating confessions out of people with a bit of violence only became a troublesome political issue in the mid-30s and the Supreme Court took a few years to react.

It gets results, and as you can tell from this thread, lots of people are more interested in getting a conviction than in seeing justice being done.

For anyone interested, I recommend this excellent webcomic - this would be the start of the chapter on the Reid technique, but it's cool throughout.

As luck would have it, US law doesn't operate on the "up to no good, guilty of something" standard.

The point was that Trump didnt call for the executions of innocent children but whoever did it.

As for the CP5, they were subject to even cruder versions and rougher methods- but hey, we got a conviction and that's what counts.
No he is asking how police coerced or manipulated information out of the suspects which contained information the police didnt know and only someone present at the crime scene would.

"Oh, we totally didn't know about that. Pinky-swear. Besides, why add other suspect that we'd have to go out and look for? We have 5 perfectly fine suspects in custody. We can easily score a conviction and move on, and isn't that what police work is all about?"

He's been doing that since the 1970s since he was sued by Nixon's DOJ for refusing to rent to black people.

The small-government advocates in this thread sure like their government when it comes to forcing down the right sort of people. Including their great white hope.
Were the friends and acquaintances also "coerced by violence"?

I don't. Heck, I've trained with law enforcement back in Europe - for decades. But I intensely dislike police misconduct. You should, too.
