The Central Park 5 gets their settlememt $40 million!

Yes, yall remember the 5 young boys who went to jail for the 1989 beating and rape of the central park jogger.  Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana, Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam have agreed to a $40 Million settlement from the New York City after being wrongfully convicted 24 years ago in the sensational Central Park jogger case that whipped New York into a racial frenzy — have reached a $40 million settlement with the city, a source familiar with the terms said Thursday.

Now middle-aged, the men were teens when they were arrested in 1989 amid a wave of corrosive and polarizing outrage over the savage rape of a 28-year-old woman. Convicted in 1990, Antron, Kevin, Raymond and Yusef were in prison just shy of seven years, while Kharey served nearly 13.  The men, known as the Central Park Five, had been locked in a bitter battle with the city since filing civil rights lawsuits following their exoneration in 2002. Their convictions were vacated after career criminal Matias Reyes confessed to the brutal crime and DNA evidence backed up his claim. Is $40 Million enough???
