Even though the Central Park Five have been cleared of all charges, Donald Trump is pissed they reached a financial settlement after each spent up to 13 years in prison. The forty million dollar settlement means each wrongly accused man receives eight million. I did the math and eight million bucks divided by 13 years is 70 bucks an hour. That’s more than I make but I wouldn’t trade my desk job for ass rapes, prison gang beat downs, and only MSNBC on the community room TV for a decade. Trump lobbied for these guys to be executed. He’s still talking shit about their guilt associations even after they’ve been found innocent.
“What were the men doing in the park, playing checkers?”
No, they were fucking around trying to buy-up booze like every other delinquent teenager in the borough. Not every kid can order Sea Breezes on the family tab at the club. I’m not a big death penalty guy, but if some thugs brutally assault a female jogger, I’m open to talking firing squad. But the punishment probably should be less than death for drinking forties and goofing around in the park and looking not-white. Trump is a proud man who doesn’t want to admit that he’s wrong. I bet he’d become more open to self-reflection after 13 years in prison. The experiment couldn’t hurt.
