"And the second thing is finally after they've been on the case and they've been making the podcast. It occurs to charles. That true crime is true for someone and their podcast that actually be exploitative and i'm just thinking like finally someone has said it and i'm not here to judge anyone who loves true crime like i've listened to in watch plenty of two crimes so that your thing no judgment but we should always bear in mind that you crime is not just entertainment right. It's people's lives. And i think the fact that it says that about true crime that it's at least exploring that side of true crime. I think it's far more important than the murder mystery of it. Well we want to know what you think about. Only murders in the building find us at facebook dot com slash p. c. h. and on twitter at p. c. h. That brings us to the end of our show. Thanks to both of you for being here thank you. Thanks for having me in the building before we go. I wanted to take a moment to remember the incredibly talented actor. Michael k williams who passed away earlier this week at the age of fifty four like many people. I was first introduced to him through the wire where he played the dynamic swaggering stick up. Man omar little luke mug game. Take some kid you play the safest way you can but in about in ohio forever your frankly been as long as me into the on your name. Anyone gonna come after omar. They're gonna know mars coming after him. Indeed it doesn't seem to hyperbolic to deem omar one of tv's greatest characters ever wanted. Just performance was multifaceted sensitive and groundbreaking coaxing audiences to love and respect a shotgun wielding robber. Who also happen to be gay. Omar was the heart of that. Show a man who lived and died by a code and never wavered but williams was so much more than omar and he proved it. In many of the other roles you took on in front of the camera. And in life after the wire who played a different more urbane kind of gangster albert chalky white in the period drama boardwalk empire. We should pull to be protected from these. Oh phase look. I can't look Done with a family. And i got my people. Your people thousand platfo make this home busboys. Trash collectors police. He has got to flex his comedic chops in a recurring guest role on community. Which i loved later this month he might win an emmy for his work. On lovecraft country he even got well-deserved. Emmy acting nominations for bessie. Tonight of and david do veronese. When they see us where he portrayed. Bobby mccray the father of one of the young boys wrongfully convicted in the nineteen eighty nine central park. Jogger case.

"The campus and they think you're that and I don't have that at home I don't have people coming up to me thinking that I'm a freak because of what somebody said the week before so you have to compensate for the person that came out. You know the week before. Explain that you're not them and it's just A. It's an uncomfortable feeling and I'm saying in the van. I'm comfortable after bill and I'm thinking well now I have to go out of my. You know as ray would say the comfort zone by the grace of God thankfully we ended up doing it so I I've been in similar situations and and you know you mentioned not having a problem telling someone put on your jacket as opposed to put on the Lord. Jesus Christ and with me. I've had to work through a lot. What issues concerning the fear of man? I was raised in a home where not even beginning to think about religion. We were just very private. We were personal. We didn't talk a whole a lot about much. That can be considered confrontational. And we're just a very private family and then in church. I was in the Catholic Church before I was saved and in NAT church. People just didn't talk about religion. It was just something you did on Sunday and it wasn't something even when church folk would get together. They wouldn't really be talking about church stuff or the Bible or anything. Nothing like that and so when I became a Christian that was one of the things I started seeing about myself that that wasn't a good place to be if I was going to be talking to people about Christ and so in my own life I had to basically deal with a lot of issues concerning the fear of man. You know. We don't WanNa look stupid. We don't want to be thought of as weird. We don't WANNA be Awkward and anyone is a Christian living the Christian life in a society that hates God. They're going to be seen as weird. They're going to be seen as different. And so I believe it's just a normal normal part of being a Christian that you're gonNA feel super different from the rest of the world and the fear of man is going to come into play on that. So have you ever thought about those kinds of things concerning the fear of man and how we as Christians are to deal with that somebody sent me an email. I think it was about a year ago now. And they're writing a book and they wanted to no. They wanted a short quote from me as to why more passengers don't go on the street and I said I can answer that very simply two reasons. Fear and pride and the reason that I can answer that. That question is because I battle it every time that I go out now. One of the questions. You're asking me how do I push through that and you're not going to like my answer. Find Find Yourself in eighty Roman. I know you chuckle at that. But the thing is you need like we were working living waters all week and and it was grueling. You know you're doing on this thing where we're asking all these questions and we were both tired. You're tired from your work. I was tired from. I mean you get up at four in the morning to fight through that traffic to get to work and Eddie says let's let's go to oceanside and evangelize. I wouldn't have gone. I wouldn't have done it. I need Nettie Roman. So here's the thing and the thing is you know you think while you would have done it with your son on or maybe you wouldn't have gone but the the thing to get through this is to get like minded brothers and to share you know your fears to share your reluctance to go and do it and then I think the Lord does that through team or do we encourage each other to go out by yourself. I think it's probably it's not wise anyways because if something happens you need somebody to you. Call Nine one one but find church where there's people that are interested in vandalism and go with them and I think that if people love the Lord they love the lost I and they love you that they're going to help you with that because I think that too many times people go out on the street and they think well. I have to be the guy to be the front runner after answer all all these questions but I would encourage people just to go find someone like an Eddie Roman and go with them and just watch and if the person loves you they will let you just watch and and then it might be that you might reduce scripture verse the next time or then you might actually talk to somebody. But that's what encourages me to do it to go out with people like Eddie watched and do it. And I'm thinking okay now I I want to talk to somebody so that's what I would encourage you to do. That's what helps me push through. It is to go with people who are going to do it despite their reluctance despite their fear and and despite the pride that is weighing all down while I was very happy to find a site Tinbergen K.. To God evangelizing today. So yeah I yeah I can tell you relate the first time I ever went out evangelizing. I actually didn't evangelize it all I I was in Vegas and a friend of mine said. Hey you gotta meet this Guy Bobby. He's is crazy. He goes out and hands out tracks to people and I remember just walking down the Strip behind this guy and just being in awe as he's Handing Out Gospel Tracts. You know it's the simplest thing in the world now but looking back it was just amazing you know and you can. You'll you'll sit in church for many years and you learn great truths truths and great theology. Hopefully if you're a good church but nothing can replace finding someone who is out following Great Commission in Evangelism wherever they're at and just just watching and learning by example you know for the most part. It's going to be very simple stuff that anyone can do whether that be handing out attract or starting a conversation as simple simple is that is. It is really hard when you've never seen anyone before when you're intimidated when you're always having all this influence of the world telling you don't do that. You can't do that so all of us definitely need an example and it definitely doesn't need to be someone like cy who is Expert in in taken apart arguments. And it's just someone who is just going to do it and so I totally agree with you there that you just got to find someone who is willing to go out and just tag along. was that Bobby. McCreary you were talking about one was talking about you. haning attracts at the Fella named Bobby was McCreary. Now this was this was another bobby. I have no idea what he's doing now but no it wasn't bobby mccray. What but that wouldn't have surprised me Maybe it was. Maybe he didn't know but one thing I did share with you. Is that that up until this year. I never looked forward to evangelize but tony me and a friend of yours breath brothers used to work with the living waters. He invited me this year to go a to a law enforcement memorial outreach back in May in Washington. DC and in that group was Tony and it was bobby and it was myself and there's a few other dear brothers and for the first first time in my life I was looking forward to going out. I was excited about it and I really don't know why but I think it's because over the years that Tony Bobby and myself that we're really on the same same page and I love the brothers evangelized within the past. But I think that you know we've had certain differences in our approach. And I think that discomfort might have been sub-conscious subconscious but the law enforcement outreach. I loved it and I love to even before we did any preaching there but something very interesting in the law enforcement outreach. To for the first time I've ever seen it. Is that the people that we are vandalizing. Were actually happy that we were there because the law enforcement community gets a lot of opposition and we had signs that said law enforcement lives matter and they love doesn't they're they're very friendly with us but even before that I think it's you know finding like minded brothers who are out there to love the lost and I really enjoy doing it and I enjoy being out here here with you and You know I think it's important of course to pray before we go out. I remember One time I was evangelizing with a group and it was a crazy Z.. Crowd and this this one fellow. He's getting a whole bunch of hecklers and I love heck was I love dealing with hecklers and he was a little bit flustered. So you know. He encouraged me to go in the box. EASTEP down and I got on the box and it went all right but it was different and it was different this time because I didn't have anybody pray for before I got up and I said at that point I will never do This again that I don't care how many people leave in the crowd that I will not step on that box without somebody praying for me and I think that's very important to do before you go out and evangelize get Sony's Tony's like-minded pray about what you're GonNa do and trust at the Holy Spirit will lead you in your work. I still remember. I mean one of the things I like to encourage my brothers before we go out and do something like this is when Alisha was with his servant and they were surrounded and they were in you know about to go into battle and Elisha servant was was afraid and Elisha pray to God that God would open his servants is and this is what he said in I kings six for sixteen he said do not be afraid for those who are with us are more than those who are with them and I think when you go out and you see you know a bunch of hostile people a bunch of people who don't want you there but when you recognize that you're representing being the king of kings the Lord of Lords and those are with us are more than those who are with them and I think that's very encouraging and that helps you when you're out there you know what can they do. What can they do? You know. We're representing the King. You bring up the the king of kings and Lord of Lords and one of the things. I've noticed in your videos in your debates and this is when you're you're both when you're teaching Christians and also when you're talking to unbelievers you refer to the fact that Jesus Christ is Lord you that's that's that's one of one of the common phrases that people will hear when they're listening to you. Jesus Christ is Lord. How does the the Lordship of Christ how how does that motivate your evangelism efforts? It seems like there's a lot of people in churches and they would agree with Jesus Christ being Lord but in reality. It's not like they're they're submitting themselves to the will of Christ on a regular basis so when you think about the term Jesus Christ as Lord how would you say that affects your evangelism efforts. Now I I was looking at that question because he did send them two minutes before we went on air here. And you know I would like to say that the Lordship of Jesus Christ affects every aspect of my life. Not Just my evangelism that he is Lord he is king and I want everything that I do in my life to be a representation of his Lordship of his his kingship and I tried to honor him and doing that. None of course we fail. We're sinners but the Lord. Jesus Christ it should affect everything that we do and I like to quote proverbs three five and six to lean not on your own understanding all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your Pat Straight and.

"In front of me I think about him so much would become close and he's very are you he's got a brilliance about him when you sit and talk to him you know most people are patient enough to sit there and talk to him but when you do you get rewards and so you know I tried to take all of my conversations with Cory which was so heart expanding for me you know he really teaches me a lot of my own life and it's helped me a lot of my own life and to take all of that and somehow put them into the final piece of this or part from the series to just explain it to share the heart of this man I mean he it is a is a is a real hero in terms of being able to look at someone and say he is he is battled something greater than most of us ever will and it's come out on the other side to tell the story so Ken burns documentary was made before the city awarded forty one million dollars to the five in the settlement of the fives lawsuit against the city and also when the burns documentaries made president trump was not you're just Donald Trump he wasn't president yet so first I want to ask you about trump what what it's like to see the role that he played in being a megaphone for finding the Central Park five guilty before they were even tried you know just like days after they were arrested and charged he took out full page ads in all of New York's for major newspapers saying bring back the death penalty bring back our police and this was an argument for the death penalty basically for for children I mean there were fourteen fifteen and sixteen years old so I'm just interested in what it was like for you to see his role in the Central Park five yes we played a very famous role in the case you know with the taking of the ads but ultimately you know he's not the story ands so it does it and I made the decisions to keep it very you're using very sparingly in use in them you know with his own words in his own footage and we do it a couple times and there's a couple mentions you know when you really research this time he was one of many prominent voices that were out saying all kinds of crazy stuff I mean Pat Buchanan basically said that Cory why should be lynched it should be hung in a public park this is the climate of the time and it was all seen as acceptable and it was this all happening without much of a second thought certainly not on the thought about the humanity of these boys and their families so so yes as we as we went through just make decisions not to lean too much into trump that's one of the reasons why I want to change the name from Central Park five two when they see us I thought that the Central Park five had become so kind of synonymous with him and him asked adding in talking about a particular around the documentary as he slammed Ken burns and tweeted against him that I just really wanted to to to to change the perspective in which we were thinking about this case can you tell us something about their lives now there are great people I love them a lot you know they're really mean I could cry just thinking about them all that good good guys you know three of them live in Atlanta it's funny because you know antrum acquainted Craig is the first to leave he goes for Atlanta he finds this beautiful black oasis in Atlanta where you you know FOR dominantly black town with you know lots of people from a lot of different parts of the country and he knows a certain certain prosperity that happens in some parts of the city and lots of activity and things to do and so he goes out there by way of Baltimore in a couple of their cities that he'd stopped in and lived along the way any fines Atlanta and Raymond comes to visit Ramos the person he's closest to they're the really best friends and may even comes to visit him he was like yo what is this you've got grass in the back well now wait what and so shortly after Raymond picks up when he moved to Atlanta and then a few months after that use of picks up and moves to Atlanta so three of them live in Atlanta and then Kevin lives in New Jersey just got married when I first met him he was not married he was dating this really wonderful woman and I remember him thinking maybe she's the one and I'm like you see the wind was going to happen now he's married and they live in New Jersey with their new daughter and and and and his step daughter and they are the cutest little family and then Corey is in Harlem and he has tried to live other places and just loves Harlem you know when he moves out of the city he longs for Harlem I mean he will he will drive back in the Harlem just to to be there he goes to al Sharpton's weekly meetings every Saturday in Harlem community meetings he's a real part of the community I walked the streets with Oprah before it's similar it's people love him they respect him they look out for him they give him a lot of love there and that's why that's why he likes it it's home so that's what the five of them are doing you know in different in various places you know with their own emotional reckoning you know but but my hope is fan and I've seen it a bit that the that the film is is Philip therapy in some ways they're able to talk about it but the main thing is now people know the story Cory's really really Adam it that people know his story he said to me early on is what's not the Central Park park five it's four plus one I had a different story and he wanted people to know and we we we did everything we could to tell his story it's a very singular story it's different from the other guys and so does the fact that now when people walk up to him they know him they know his story they respect what he went through I think is I hope and I pray that it it has a positive effect on him in on all of them it would do Renee thank you so much for talking with us thank you so much I appreciate it thanks for having me even do Rene directed co wrote and produced the Netflix series when they see us which is nominated for sixteen Emmy is including two for duvernay best writing and best directing for limited series after we take a break we'll hear from Michael K.

"AIR resignation leaves the Federal Election Commission would just remembers they're supposed to have at least four we can continue to do investigations that I've already been authorized but we can't authorize any new investigations can't issue any rules we can issue an advisory opinion what this means for twenty twenty next time on the take away weekday afternoons at three on ninety three point nine FM this is fresh air and if you're just joining us my guest is ava duvernay she produced directed and co wrote the new Netflix series when they see us which dramatizes the story of the five young men who are now middle aged man who became known as the Central Park five after they were accused and then based on false and coerced confessions a convicted of raping and assaulting a woman whose jogging in Central Park when about twelve years later when the convictions were vacated they sued the city of New York and years later won a total of forty one million dollars in a settlement and you know after making these coerced confessions they recanted their confessions and they never backed down from recanting even after they were in prison and some of them were offered no parole if they just you know took responsibility for the crimes that they committed they said we wouldn't commit those crimes the that's right even Corey wives who thirteen some years in prison and the worst prisons in New York state never wavered from the truth which was that he didn't do it and lying had gotten him to that place he believes that lying got him into prison you know following the the coercion trying to please being told that he would be allowed to leave if he said certain things those with the regrets that he lives with as a as a man you know decisions that he made you know trusting authority figures as a as a boy he never intended to lie again so yeah you know you know they never wavered they never lied again after they all connected they never went back on their word a lot of the final episode is devoted to the story of Cory and he kissed or is it just like particularly heartbreaking he was charged only because he agreed to accompany his friend who is being picked up on the park by the police on the night of the attack in Central Park and of course name wasn't even on the list of people who they were rounding up he was just the cop said to him once you come to the station house with with your friend and so to be loyal to his friend he came along ends up making a false confession ends up getting convicted and ends up being the only one of the five who's tried as an adult and is sent to adult prisons where he is repeatedly brutalized and assaulted and also I think what makes hard it harder for him is that he either he can't read well or he can't read it all I I wasn't quite sure like if you take if you could read it all but that makes it harder for him to figure out what's going on sometimes and also he was born or early in childhood had a hearing impairment of his speech is a little bit slurred and and like I think all of those things must've added up to make his years of just especially difficult and I'm wondering having met all of these men when they were in their forties if you feel that he is still like suffering a lot because of all of these extra things that he was exposed to yeah I mean it's definitely suffering he did thirteen years this child his youth was stolen from him right he did more years than and then the others so yeah I mean he's definitely affected by all of that and it was trying to make his way through a new life you know we always says life after death life after death this is what he is trying to navigate how to be here on the outside in the world having gone through you know a type of darkness that you know is it is this really almost impossible to describe what you see in the film is not all of what he endured email is even worse than you depict there was more they want more heating there there there was more damage done to him more darkness more or more trauma and so whenever he's in front of me I just think he's Americal even when he's not in front of me I think about so much we've become close and he's very he's got a brilliance about him when you sit and talk to him you know most people are patient enough to sit there and talk to him but when you do you get rewards and so you know I tried to take all of my conversations with Cory which was so heart expanding for me you know he really teaches me a lot of my own life and it's helped me a lot of my own life and to take all of that and somehow put them into the final piece of this four part film the series to just explain it to share the heart of this man I mean he it is a is a is a real hero in terms of being able to look at someone and say he is he is battled something greater than most of us ever will and it's come out on the other side to tell the story so Ken burns documentary was made before the city awarded forty one million dollars to the five in the settlement of the fives lawsuit against the city and also when the burns documentaries made president trump was not you're just Donald Trump he wasn't president

Do you Renee balances the stories of five separate families and the challenges of having a child in prison? Thanks to gutting performances from the on samba cast. One of the stories that have Anton McRae's incarceration is one of bitterness and guilt intron is bitter because his father Bobby didn't do more to protect him and guilt. Eats at Bobby McCray.
