Lynn, with all due respect, the tragedy is these boys got railroaded at every step of the way and the media was happy to support their presumption of guilt based on their skin color. The tragedy is that even to this day, people insist on smearing their character as men. The tragedy is that even when Black and brown people are completely innocent, there is a presumption of guilt.
The tragedy is that most of the people in this world still won’t believe the lesson this whole thing teaches us. Crime is not based on skin color and cops are not here to protect or serve children of color from poor communities. I applaud the men I have come to know a bit. In spite of all the harm our racist system inflicted on these kids, they became pillars of society and great role models. The system took their youth, but never their integrity. Can’t wait until all the files are unsealed.

What follows reveals a venial sin/omission compared to a mortal sin/omission (catechism from Catholic schools still resonates slightly). It also could be merely a mistake.
