    When They See Us

    ★★★★★

    My initial reaction was tears. The last 45 minutes of part 4 were grown man tears, tears of anger, tears of fear, those tears should have turned into happy ones but I couldn't make myself smile.

    What happened to these 5 young men Antron, Raymond, Kevin, Yusef, and Korey was possibly the biggest modern day form of injustice you'll ever see.
