Juxtaposing two Central Park cases
15 November 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I well remember during the 80s the famous Preppie Killer case, how a drunk Robert Chambers lured a drunk Jennifer Levin into Central Park and killed her during what he described as rough sex. His inebriation led to him being convicted of manslaughter and he did a stretch in the joint. In real life Chambers proved to be an unrepentant jerk and is currently doing another stretch on a drug charge.

This case is juxtaposed with another crime, that of the Central Park wilding case where a bunch of black youths were convicted of rape after what was described riotous behavior for this episode.

Here and in real life mothers stood by their sons. But here mother Christine Jones is killed and son Adam Storke is looking good for it.

This one belongs to Vincent D'Onofrio who just has a gut feeling that Storke didn't kill the mother. But Jones before she died was looking into a wilding case in which four black youths were convicted for. Turns out Storke might just be the perpetrator there. All highly embarrassing to the criminal justice system.

Two really stand out here besides those already mentioned. Mike Starr as the original lead detective on the wilding case and Terry Conn as Storke's new girlfriend. As long as I live I will never understand groupies for murderers even one as good looking as Chambers in real life. Some go through life without being too tightly wrapped.
