”CENTRAL PARK FIVE” = “THE EXONERATED FIVE”

This is a ‘must watch‘!

The story of stolen innocence, childhood and youth due to an entirely flawed system associated to bias, racism and inequality.

=======================================

🙏🏽 … ‘They’d already spent years of their lives incarcerated for a crime they didn’t commit.

Yuseff Salaam was released in March 1997 after serving seven years and 11 months, Kevin Richardson was released in June 1997 after serving eight years and two months, Antron McCray was released in September 1996 after serving seven years and five months and Raymond Santana was released in December 1995 after serving six years and eight months. By the time Reyes confessed, Korey Wise had spent 13 years and three months behind bars.

It’s now known that the true perpetrator was Matías Reyes, a serial rapist who was in prison when he confessed to the crime in 2002.

As ‘When They See Us‘ masterfully illustrates, the Central Park Fiveare a tragic example of the flaws in our justice system and the manner in which prosecutors and detectives exploited these flaws and used the city and country’s racial tensions to their advantage.

As a result, five children spent the majority of their teen years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit, and it’s important to remember that they are victims as well.’ … 🙏🏽

Does the sex with the most empathy always lose?

We have learned that backlash follows backlash. But have we lived through a time of backlashes actively fighting one another simultaneously?

 

One official says that you can’t be a victim after 40 years [oh yeah? How about 70 years?] I understand this regime scores low on knowledge of history and even reading, but surely they must have soaked up something of women being afraid to report rape due to negative response and treatment, and a blemish on her reputation.  For underage children there’s something called the Child Sexual Abuse Syndrome, in which when children do report, family pressures them to recant. Now at the same time that mysogynism has raised its head in daylight from murky waters again,  even sitting on its own throne,  a good many women are responding with alarm to the additional loss in dignity and rights they have lost and are continuing to lose.  At times I can’t figure Betsy DeVos out, with her greatest concern about perpetrators. I guess she can see which way the president is pushing. Good girl, a pat on the bottom for you!

VIGNETTE for d’Verse

LOOKS DON’T MATTER

She stoops, sags a little and has a mole.

NOR DO THOUGHTS.

Murderous fantasies overwhelm her at times.

BEHAVIOR CAN BE CHANGED.

Old patterns of obsequiousness remain.

SEX ISN’T EVERYTHING.

She was raped, at eleven, by her uncle.

IT IS THE SPIRIT

Alive, under an imperfect breast:

THAT DEFINES

The woman.
