Donald Trump has electrified the Republican Presidential Campaign with his bombastic remarks and quick jabs at the press, women, Mexicans and well just about everyone. This isn’t the first time Trump has been electrifying.
In 1989 after the vicious rape and beating of a white Central Park jogger, there was a huge public outcry to find whoever did this heinous act. The NYPD responded quickly and soon paraded 5 Black & Latino suspects before the city as the culprits of this crime. The term “Wilding” was thrust into the public vocabulary as a simple way to describe the “animalistic frenzy” that is often attached to the ever dangerous, criminally inclined Black & Latino males in America. The city was fuming and wanted these 5 young men charged to the fullest extent of the law. One person, took it upon himself to create a true high tech lynch mob by placing a full page ad in the NY Daily News calling for the death of these 5 young men.
Years later, when it was found that the Central Park 5 was innocent and actually framed they were released from prison and sued the city of New York. In true Trump style, rather than apologize and acknowledge that these young men were innocent, he doubled down on ignorance and wrote a special piece for the NY Daily News condemning the $40 million dollar lawsuit, calling it ridiculous and a scam.
