No doubt, but Trump was the arrogant one who paid for full page ads calling for their execution.

The rest of us can say 'we were wrong', and 'thank God we found out the truth' ... not Trump.

I like how lack of an apology over an event that happened decades ago (prob before many of you were born) is now the thing that makes Orange Man Bad. But I guess when everything else is debunked you gotta reach for something.

They were wrong, hence Trump was wrong. You answered your own question.

I could see if Trump had his way.

"I'm going to reinstitute this beautiful death penalty. I'm going to start next week. I have a plan that I will let you know about when the time is right but it's a beautiful plan to rid us of these kids and everyone is going to love it".

No, there are many things. This simply adds to it and helps explain his issues.

The crime in NYC was out of control at that time. Everyone was sick of it, regardless of race.

You can thank the media and the police and the DAs office for that.

They should be the ones apologizing.

They are the ones who did the CP-5 dirty.
Never let facts get in the way of a good Trump bashing. The whole Netflix series that brought this case back out of history was just a big ant-Trump commercial.

We can go into stuff about crime rates, but it still wouldn't matter. If you confess to a crime you didn't commit so you don't have to go through the agony of court to prove your innocence, there is a problem here.

I've never been to New York City. Not yet anyway.

Someone said that stop and frisk cleaned up New York City. What no one considers is that the murder rate was dropping before S&F even took place. Gentrification chased alot of people out.
They were attacking people in the park. Yes, they deserved prison. Crime was out of control. A group of multiracial police, detectives, jurors, and others thought they were guilty. The media and activists are the only ones who made this about race.

14 year old's don't go to prison and for a good reason. One can understand why you would want to deflect from Trump's desire to see them dead.

Attacking random, innocent people is good enough reason for me.
