The Central Park Five


De Blasio said that the “40 million settlement offered to the Central Park Five was necessary  to correct the ‘injustice’ done to the five men who were wrongly convicted  of raping a woman jogger.”


For an anti-capitalist man who hates income inequality he seems to place a lot of value on money.  The Five wasted years of their lives in jail and De Blasio wants to buy them off.  There is no restitution for injustices.  No matter what De Blasio pays them they will never get their lives back. De Blasio feel that he can make it good with a few million?


You can’t make bad good.  You just have to suck it up and live with the bad.  You have to accept your jail

 sentence and live with it.  I did a measly two years in jail. I liked it.  I didn’t feel I should be paid for it.

Maybe I was guilty; maybe I wasn’t.  I didn’t care.  I just don’t want some giant, simplistic, progressive

-minded politician paying me off  for what I did wrong in order that he can get votes for his false

 compassion.  And if I didn’t do something wrong, I did other things illegally that never came to the



And where does that few million for the Five come from?  Should I have to pay from my taxes for a misjudgment that a judge made under difficult circumstances?


The Five deserve nothing.  Nothing comes from nothing.  Their responsibility is to rediscover their lives not to hold up innocent people for recompense.


If De Blassio feels that the moral issue is quite clear why doesn’t he contribute his whole income to the Central Park Five? Why doesn’t he give something more significant than his whining?


The dimwit has decided that “An injustice was done.  And we have a moral obligation to respond to that injustice.”


Not “we” Lone Ranger, “you.”  I wasn’t there.  I had nothing to do with it.  I do not want to pay tax money for governmental mistakes.  De Blasio, you are part of the government.  You pay.


And don’t make an excuse like, "It's not my place to try to go into every detail of a case or talk to everyone involved.”  You are condoning a substitute payment by people who were not involved.

It is your responsibility.

David, Thanks for bringing us up to snuff  as to what the Central Park Five were.

This was't big national news outside NYC. There had to be substantial reasons

that involved there getting accused, and convicted. $40.Million is a substantial

sum to pay for a possible error. Every attorney in the city must be making quite

the haul on this case alone. The vast majority going bac to re-election campagns

of DeBassio.and other crooked members of the council and staff. Thats why here

in NYC we have the best politicians money can buy.. You the taxpayers are footing

this bill, and lining their pockets. Thats rape of the tax payers.

Well, David, that's the unsweetened unvarnished truth.

It's good to remember that there are a couple of innocent people in jail, it helps to keep the public from turning a blind eye to things like prison rape.

But DeBlasio is full of beans.

The kicker is that only Progressivism's housepets qualify for settlements.

Every other day, DeBlasio and his leftists are all for riding roughshod over the good citizens of the USA.  Especially if they're conservative and white and male, but they'll exploit everybody sooner or later.

Sounds like the Cuban five to me. Is anyone sure that they didn't take a side trip.
