Central Park Five Detective Dies Of Cancer

The lead detective who helped put “The Central Park Five“, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, Korey Wise, Antron McCay and Kevin Richardson in prison for multiple crimes that they didn’t commit is dead.

According to PIX11, 71-year-old NYPD cop-turned-news-reporter Mike Sheehan died at New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital after a years-long battle with cancer.

Obviously, Ava Duvernay’s hit Netflix series “When They See Us” has once again shined back an intense light on all those involved with wrongfully taking the freedom of five young boys in 1989 and Mike Sheehan is no different than Linda Fairstein as far as we’re concerned.

We get it. There are people who liked/loved his guy for whatever reason, but his role in knowingly pushing a narrative that was obviously a lie makes him a piece-of-s#!t. The adulation they have for him as someone who “would always take the time to tell it right” is beyond laughable. It’s offensive.
