I just finished watching the entire series, and there is sooo much to unpack. I was familiar with this case, but seeing what these young men experienced had me seething with anger.
So basically Fairstein and her crew was so desperate to apprehend the somone---anyone, they threw any BS theory against the wall hoping it would stick, and when it didn't, they coerced confessions from all--except for Yusef--whose mother thankfully, wasn't having it. They were all collateral damage as a result.
Despite a confession from Reyes, and solid evidence--including DNA--that he acted alone, they were too delusional to admit any wrongdoing, and still insist that they were guilty, and they have the chutzpah to get salty after the five men received their much deserved settlement. Despicable.
Fairstein is trash, and I'm disgusted that she is out here living her best life as author, knowing that she ruined these kids. I'm not going talk about that orange, corrosive slime who's currently squatting at the White House.
I wanted to hug Korey during the incarceration scenes; I immediately thought of Kalief Browder as he was the same age as Korey when got locked up. The fact that he made it 12 years and is still around to share his story is incredible.
Once again, Ava came through. She can do no wrong. Give her all the awards.
Jharell Jerome needs to go ahead and prepare his acceptance speeches. Yes, I'm claiming that one. Give him all the nods and awards, too.
