In April of 1989, a jogger was brutally assaulted in New York City and the police chose to arrest a group of teenagers for the crime who became known as the Central Park Five. The documentary about the incident details the various individuals who made claims about the young men and how the police subsequently treated them as a result. Poor investigative practices and a general lack of attention to detail spun a very difficult web for the defendants to escape. This event has since become known as one of the worst examples of misconduct and coercion by law enforcement.
