Netflix's 'When They See Us' Explores Central Park Five Case
It's the case that further polarized an already tense and divided New York City. In April 1989, a young investment banker went for a run in Central Park. Her vicious rape and beating was splashed across the headlines.

They are the subject of Netflix's new limited series "When They See Us." InsideEdition.com's Stephanie Officer spoke to civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson about the effect the case had nationwide.
