I have just watched the film “When they see us,” which is the story of five innocent children who were convicted of a rape in Central Park and spent from 6 to 12 years in prison before being exonerated.
All I can say is watch this very moving and true story, I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I won’t spoil the story by giving any details except to mention that Linda Fairstein the detective who was head of the Manhattan District sex crimes unit who prosecuted these boys went on to become an award winning mystery fiction writer.
Having said that, she was awarded the Grand Master Award by the Mystery Writers of America in 2018 but the award was rescinded after many members became aware of her involvement in the case of the Central Park Five.
On a personal note I never buy the sort of books that Linda Fairstein writes and I would suggest to all my readers to do likewise.
