Review: Devastating 'The Central Park Five' details injustice
New York Mayor Ed Koch didn't shrink from calling it "the crime of the century." A TV newscaster talked angrily about evildoers who "blazed a nighttime trail of terror" that culminated in the horrific beating and savage rape of a Central Park jogger on the night of April 19, 1989. The event became an all-consuming national sensation, but, as it turns out, everything everyone thought they knew was wrong.
