  1. True villain Fairstein. Absolute disgrace. Should be locked up honestly. For example if a project engineer messes up a structure and it results in the death of many they'll be locked up. Same should apply to these officers.
    Messed up the case- resulted in 5 boys being wrongly accused. She should be locked up.

  2. The only way out is to change the system so the Linda Fairsteins in our society don't ever get the chance to create pain & suffering again.

  3. I heard of "whitewashing" but clearly when that Cy Vance guy states "..there's no finding of any wrongdoing unprofessional behavior by any of the prosecutors involved" ..is what's called "washing whites" of it's finest at best ..

  4. linda fairstein, i’m glad that you resigned from the board of trustees but i’d MUUUUUUUCH rather you resign from life.

  5. 2:30 did she not fail to properly research the case that can ruin 5 innocent black Boys lives🤦🏾‍♂️ racists are so ignorant hypocritical and always contradict themselves

  6. 2:30 did she not fail to properly research the case that can ruin 5 innocent black Boys lives🤦🏾‍♂️ racists are so ignorant hypocritical and always contradict themselves

  7. Son of Sam laws prohibit criminals from profiting from the writings of their crime. That same standard should be applied to this woman retroactively.

  8. the serie is amazing i just got hooked up, and this has to take all ppls attention! i have never seen something like this… we never think that someone can be convicted by corruption like this

  9. Did they really have the nerve to speak of a disservice after what they done to these boys!!! This lady has issues, narcissism, sociopath, SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH HER!!

  10. True evil, she needs to be put behind bars to manipulate the case, i am sure there must be a law like that to put her behind bars for life.

  11. He is a horrible, horrible individual. And now he won't even apologize. He was calling for the death penalty. His day will come and not a tear will be shed.

  12. She knew what she did was wrong,her pride possessed her to the fullest extent!those cops played a big roll in this too!no guilt,no conscience,no heart and no remorse pathethic
    cops!

  13. She should go to jail… GO… You can't put a price on the time they lost… It was her responsability to check the facts and not be racist, she failed to do so and now she should pay the sum of the years the boys spent in jail

  14. She's as fiction as her books, she derived from her imagination that the five young men were guilty and changed the true events to make it stick. She handled this case like she was writing her next fiction novel.
    They were not young men in her eyes they were characters.
    I hope her next novel titles: Waking up to reality in a 4 x 6 cell.

  15. if this could cost the next election to dumb trump the worst US president ever had …i will more than glad

  16. All this tragedy and these ruined childrens' life are due to this racist zionist female pig linda fairnstein , the fake prosecutor with no pro skills
    Fairnstein must be personnally charged now to having submit this case with racist motivation

  17. The truth will always reveal …no matter how long … I wonder if she had any kids of herself at the time her and all her team of animal detective who handle this case should be all get lock up for triple life in jail animal make me so angry.

  18. This is such a disgraceful shame the prosecutors and detectives they act like they have no guilt what they have done to these boys have scarred them for lives while the boys are in prison being brutalized and assaulted the prosecutors and detectives are living their best lives,this is cruelty the prison system is modern day slavery.

  19. If they did it. Why are the getting 41 million dollars and let out of jail . There must have been just a little bad business going on the Prosecution side. . But as they all say there never wrong.

  20. I understand how she may not like how she's been portrayed, but that statement is SO tone deaf whatever sympathy she may have garnered has been burnt. She clearly has no idea of the world she lives in now. Bye, Felicia.

  21. Essa puta loira com falta de rola ajudou a acusa os garotos filha da puta dessa deve ser doida para cair né uma pica preta cadê ll a racista é tão feia que deve pagar um negao no Brasil para te come com esse presidente de merda

  22. She was able to eat off her Novels for the last 15 years over the innocence of others… Just think about that.

  23. The real question is what is white society doing in society about racial oppression in society???

    They'll type comments that seem as though they do something I guess.

  24. now Netflix … exornerate Michael Jackson and expose Harvey Weinstein and rest of Hollywood and you'd go down in History

  25. Am only 11 and i watched when they see us and it made me depressed as a young black male it makes me feel like a target to the police

  26. They were released pretty much because the real culprit confessed , so a criminal showed more sympathy and compassion to those kids than the judicial system

  27. this should be bringing Donald Trump down it shows him as an investor in death and injustice and a promoter of it today why are you not exposing him to he lives by fake news so if you don't say anything he will make something up

  28. Linda ferinstein, however her name is spelled. I don't care it's not important is a disgrace. Duvernay should be ashamed of herself. What!???? You put them behind bars, and have the nerve to say this. You a wolf in sheep's clothing. The devil never wins. She's trying to save her but now that why she tried to get in action with this series. Really, what did she think duvernay was going to say "yes"? 🤔. Foolish of her. But deaf, dumb, and blind ppl have no understanding, no intellect. Wicked system. The devilish sustem. How does she sleep at night knowing what she did? I can't fathom it. But, she is sleeping at night cause the she has no heart. Your one big part of the reason they were charged. How dare you. She knows what she did. She will take that to the grave with her. After all is said and done all these men, still have good hearts, and Allah (god) knows best. Good fighting evil. The rality. My heart breaks for them all especially Korey😭😭😭. Man!

  29. Great, u'd just ruined their 10 years of precious time where they could have build their future and could become someone we know off.
