Recommendation: Spend Some Time With ‘The Central Park Five’

With all the serious talk on the blog this week about the future development of Yankton, I wish I could say I was going to lighten things up today.

I want to make a film recommendation, but it’s a very sober topic. However, I think this is a really powerful documentary and deserves to be seen.

It’s called “The Central Park Five.”

The film aired on PBS earlier this year, and I just caught up with it via DVD.

I was really taken in by this story of race, media hysteria and poor law enforcement that ultimately resulted in five boys spending time in prison for a crime they did not commit.

I think you will be, too.

If you’re looking for lighter fare of the crazy kind, may I suggest “John Dies at the End”? It’s streaming on Netflix. I’ve watched it three times now. I’m nominating it for cult classic status.

I’m still trying to get my hands on some “soy sauce.”
