Central Park Five Prosecutor Pens Op-Ed Amid Backlash, Calls Netflix Series an “Outfight Fabrication”

Describing When They See Us as “so full of distortions and falsehoods as to be an outright fabrication,” Fairstein outlines in the WSJ what she claims are the “most egregious falsehoods.” “When They See Us, repeatedly portrays the suspects as being held without food, deprived of their parents’ company and advice, and not even allowed to use the bathroom. If that had been true, surely they would have brought those issues up and prevailed in pretrial hearings on the voluntariness of their statements, as well as in their lawsuit against the city. They didn’t, because it never happened,” she writes. – Abid Rahman, The Hollywood Reporter » http://bit.ly/2IDJe6f
