Central Park Five, PBS, Wrongful Rape Conviction

Extreme case of wrongful conviction for rape in New York City.  This is being broadcast on April 16th, 17th 2013. Government abuses by elected officials can be observed to some extent. The abuses of the criminal justice system are less open to scrutiny. This three-hour feature reveals some of the most serious problems with the criminal justice system. Race and class is one part of it. The refusal of police and prosecutors to act rationally is another. False confessions is a third.Watch this feature with the Independent Lens feature In My House and you can see how f***ed up the courts are. It begins with the politicians who write laws and appoint judges and prosecutors. Add bureaucrats who obey misguided directives and you have an opportunity for serious abuses.
