Donald Trump Says Central Park Five Are Guilty, Despite DNA Evidence

Source: NBC

Wading into a racially-charged case from his past, Donald Trump indicated that the "Central Park Five" were guilty, despite being officially exonerated by DNA evidence decades after a notorious 1989 rape case.

"They admitted they were guilty," Trump said to CNN in a statement.

"The police doing the original investigation say they were guilty. The fact that that case was settled with so much evidence against them is outrageous. And the woman, so badly injured, will never be the same."

The five men were convicted as teenagers after implicating each other under intense questioning over a brutal sexual assault on a jogger that dominated the tabloids. Defenders said they were coerced into confessing and all five were later cleared by DNA evidence and a separate confession in 2002 from another criminal who took credit for the assault.

DNA evidence and separate confession mean nothing to him. Why? Because back then in 1989 he took a stand that they were guilty and should be put to death. Going so far as to take out full page advertising in several newspapers at a cost of $85,000.

He ignores the obvious bias which was taking place in NY back in 1989. A bias which he went beyond embracing to actually help spread and fuel.

Trump is truly deranged. That he's the actual Republican candidate for the WH boggles my mind on a daily basis!
