    Anybody watch/watching this? Im half way through the first episode & shit has me so pissed, I gotta pause every 5 minutes just to chill out.

    P.S. for those that don’t know, the series is based on a true story. Central Park 5.

    I heard it gets harder to sit through as the show goes on. Astonishing to me how the prosecutors/law enforcement involved in this just got away. No justice.

    I watched all 4 episodes in one sitting. It was very well done. I agree w/ you though @Enigma seeing this made me so f--king mad.

    i thought the first two episodes were way more captivating than the back half..was also really strange how they jumped in time and skipped the actual trial where they got sentence..unless i missed it

    Only one episode left. First 2 were great, third one was okey. Fist episode made me so angry, and you know stuff like this still happens today.

    I thought the 4th episode was incredibly done too though. Korey’s story is the most f--king heartbreaking.

    When the prison guard gave him the chia pet.....

    Lmfao. Just stop with the shenanigans, man. There's a time and place for your absurd lack of logic and skepticism.

    Are you really against the death penalty whenever people like YNW Melly shoots 2 of his personal friends in the back? And confirms it in a song. Those kind of people need to go away and we need to set an example with the death penalty. It’s just we’re paying a ton of tax payers money just to feed them everyday in prison while they watch tv and play cards or whatever all day. Same with the school shooters, they should also get the death penalty. Just because I could see your response trying to bait me into a race topic. Those illegal immigrants the last few months who raped and killed multiple women should get the death penalty. There’s no hope for evil minds like that.

    And remember, the majority of those Netflix shows try to persuade you into believing something and is mainly controlled by the liberal media. The government wants your eyes glued to Netflix, instead of what’s happening in the real world. You’re opinions will change once you actually have to work someday.

    Am I against death penalty? Morally no but in practice yes. The death penalty is only morally defensible when someone commits a heinous crime. The Central Park 5 were children of color that were coerced by law enforcement to admit to a crime they did not commit. No DNA or physical evidence & they locked these kids up. Trump wanted to kill these kids. Even after they were exonerated, he maintained they should have been given the death penalty. Never apologized or admitted his wrong doing.

    Doesn’t shock me you support the murder of innocent kids of color.

    Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster.
