    I watched this story without knowing what happened to the boys in the end. I am glad they are all alive and well today. And it breaks my heart to see how a system that is built to protect children like them had failed them completely. Thank you for making this series, for those who have never heard of it, it truly shows the sheer injustice that exists in the system in the past, and to this present day. I wish nothing but happiness to all five of them.

    okay. the main issue i have is why didn't this series talk about the 15 boys they rounded up? they rounded up 15 boys that were involved in series of assault on people and robbery that happened that night. and it's also insane that they didn't mention that they were involved bashing in a biker and a runner in central park that night which they were convicted for.

    There's a lot of discrepancies with the actual case and the films they portray this series. and people are eating it up like this is the bible. this is insane

    Amazing mini-series, as objective as it could be, really told the untold story from these kids perspective, seen this story when I was growing up and the way they painted them in the media was horrible, always felt something was off about the story and finally a human aspect has been given and a voice, well done ava and the cast an crew, and also the central park survivors, because thats what you men are, survivors. Thank you all.

    To everyone who see this:
    If someone says this to you, "of course they did it. why would someone confess to something they didn't do?"
    this is what you say:
    Children are molested and abused every single day in this world. They hold it in. Their abusers tell them no one will believe them, better not tell, etc. (anyone who denies this occurs, you are fucking stupid and not worth addressing, this is reality).
    But anyway, I bring this up because would you say to those abused children , " Of course you were NOT abused/molested. If that was true, why would you keep it to yourself all this time? you're lying".
    why is it we can understand and accept that children are easily manipulated and vulnerable to being physically abused , but not abused white supremacy via the criminal justice system.

    Another movie about racist police. How about the white guy who was convicted of raping a black girl and was abused in prison by black inmates but years later was found not guilty. I feel bad for these kids but let us stop demonizing the police. So many news, shows, and movies portraying them unfairly. Most of them are not evil. Yes there are a few racist cops (of different ethnicity/background and not just whites) but a huge majority just wants peace and order to reign. The thing that bothers me the most is it's the news where white police officers shoots black dudes that gets the most coverage, even on cases where the police officer was justified to shoot. I used to believe these reports and even joined rallies and protests condemning the police but once I started doing research on my own, the stats doesn't back up these claim. More white people have died in the hands of police officer than black folks. More police officers are victims of mauling and shootings by black folks than the other way
    around. And black folks are more likely to be hit by lightning than being shot by a police officer. How many movies and t.v. shows have come out about police brutality the last ten years? Now how many movies have come out about police being harmed by black folks? This is insane. Stop dividing this nation with your self serving propaganda.

    When black people disregard what other race think about them and restore functionality and self validation to themselves, they will take their rightful place at the top of food chain. This woman Ava Duvernay is paid by non-blacks to depict her own kind as victims and bottom feeders.
