Oh the Central Park case was different. This is when a group of teenagers, age 14-16 were suspected of murdering a jogger in central park in NY. He put out full page ads wanting their execution before it went to trial. I don’t think they were Muslim, just a bunch of kids who were black and because of heavy-handed 80s police tactics, got confessions forced out of them. But, in the end, they didn’t do it. A prisoner who was on the loose did it. But Trump still kept on about it for years afterwards. It was weird.

My main point in all this is due process. As messed up as our system is, I believe in due process. After due process? Well, depends on the kind of blood the people want to see I guess but I prefer not doing archaic punishments.
