On the evening of 19 April, as 28-year-old investment banker Trisha Meili, who was white, jogged across the northern, dilapidated section of Central Park, she was brutally attacked – bludgeoned with a rock, gagged, tied and raped. She was left for dead but discovered hours later, unconscious and suffering from hypothermia and severe brain damage.

But who did it?
The New York police department believed they already had the culprits in custody.
That same night, a group of more than 30 youths had entered the park from East Harlem. Some engaged in a rampage of random criminality, hurling rocks at cars, assaulting and mugging passersby. Among the group was Salaam, along with 14-year-olds Raymond Santana and Kevin Richardson, 15-year-old Antron McCray and 16-year-old Korey Wise. The teenagers – four African American and one Hispanic – would become known collectively as the Central Park Five.
Note the races of the boys.
The five boys were coerced by the police into signing confessions.
Donald Trump took out and signed ads demanding that the boys be executed.
But thankfully, nobody listened to racist demented Trump.
Because the real culprit eventually came forward and confessed to the crime, and DNA evidence apparently supports the confession.
But here's the scary bit : Trump still believes the boys were guilty and should still be executed!!
This reminds me of the Deep South, when men of colour were lynched on a whim.
And yes, that's the same Deep South that Alex Jones' Confederate ancestors fought for..
Seriously, do you honestly want this racist, demented product of the fascist CIA/mob network that assassinated JFK and RFK anywhere near The White House?
With all that worrying pro-Israel, pro-military bullshit coming out of his mouth?
And has Trump come out and demanded that the white bankers of Wall Street be executed?
