  3. Why didn't you mention that one of the most active, vocal participants in the messaging frenzy that branded these young men as a "wolf pack" and "guilty" was Donald Trump? Why didn't you note that Trump has NEVER apologized for his role in helping to convict these innocent men?

  4. This is disgusting!!!! These young men were robbed of their youth. So sad that man's father made him lie.

  5. Besides the money I hope those 5 men heard the words "I'm sorry" from the people who helped put them in jail. We know racist trump didn't.

  6. This reminds me of the Karina Vetrano cased that just recently went down… I know the cases aren't exactly the same but I think the case may be worth another look…

  7. Heyyy CBS SUNDAY MORNING, you forgot to mention how your president DONALD J TRUMP took out a full page ad in the New York Times condemning these young boys!

  8. This story must continue to be told, because the same bigoted mindset that put these gentlemen behind bars exists in this country today.

  9. Joe biden said when he was vice president quote (" They want to put you back in chains") unquote…cautionary tale to whom…oh its the judaic/trinitarian union that wants to do it

  10. Trump took out a full page ad in the N.Y. times to call for their execution, even after they were exonerated, Trump still wanted those men executed. If anyone should be executed it should be Trump for the deaths of those two innocent refugee children of color he hates so much. A girl, who died of thirst and a boy who died of the lack of medical attention.

  11. I see they didn't mention our great President Donald Trump 🤬🙄

  12. We've been watching CBS Sunday Morning since its beginning and are deeply disappointed at the omission of Donald Trump's involvement in the story. The fact that he is our current president and used his position as a public figure to label these young men as animals and criminals. To go so far as to publicly call for their execution is symptomatic of his ingrained racism. The omission of this obvious and relevant aspect of the story cannot be coincidental. CBS – you are capable of better journalism than this. Be better CBS.

  13. You see the pain on these gentlemen's face. No amount of 💰 can erase the pain they've endured. Their story must be told over, and over again. Otherwise there's no justice. It's JUST- US…

  14. So disappointing! I watch every Sunday morning and I expected much better! No mention of Trump who called for the death penalty on these INNOCENT boys???? Shame on you!!!!

  15. You can't allow cops to lie to people during interrogations because it fosters false confessions.

  19. Commenters are right–Trump should apologize for his role, just like Al Sharpton apologized for Tawana Brawley and Crown Heights and Freddie's Fashion Mart. …no, wait…

  20. They are guilty of at least assaulting the woman and should still be behind bars. Lookup the Armstrong Report, there is a reason by Bloomberg refused to settle.

  21. Trump was wrong AF for accusing these young men without having any proof and even after they were found innocent, he never apologized to them!
