Publisher's Summary

Brooklyn North is the true story of how four black men were wrongfully convicted of murder — nearly all connected to a once-legendary NYPD homicide detective, Louis Scarcella. Jonathan Fleming, Sundhe Moses, Jabbar Washington and John Bunn were among dozens of innocent New Yorkers, who spent decades in prison — guilty until proven innocent. This Original documentary follows their relentless fight to unveil an insidious pattern of police and prosecutorial corruption in Brooklyn at the height of the war on drugs and a historic peak in violent crime in the 1980s and ‘90s.

Scary

How wrong and unjust that you can be sent to prison for a crime you did not commit because of your colour.

The amazing thing is that these men do not feel bitter, but have gone on to help others.

What kind of thought process let's the guilty go free , and feel happy about it. Shame on them.

Shocking and Tragic

This a truly shocking indictment of the American legal system exposing the depths of corruption and racism in the late 20th century. Thank heavens there are still a few good honest people who fought the system. Even the machinations of the law over the last two decades are deeply disturbing as block after torturously slow block is put in the way of those seeking justice.
This is a deeply researched heartfelt podcast.

A Brilliant Listen

I would recommend this listen to everybody.
The facts were presented without fluff, making this listen better than a movie.
In fact this will make a brilliant true live drama.
A very very sad story, I cried alot I must admit.
Thanks to everyone involved for making this audiobook and shedding light onto the subject of discrimination and inequality.

A must listen.

This was incredible well presented and made for an incredibly engaging listen. The realities of the American justice system through the lives of these men has left me with a clearer image of a fraction of the social issue facing the black community in America. At times, this was heart breaking and difficult to listen to but that is why it should be listened to. Would highly recommend.

Fascinating and so disturbing

A brilliantly curated podcast that shows the utter scandal and wrongful punishment that so many people face due to crooked criminal justice, corrupt law enforcement, and systemic racism.

Shocking

I was totally enthralled by this. So many shocking injustices, I was constantly shaking my head in disbelief and anger, how does this happen?! So sad and frustrating that these poor men lost so much of their lives. How would you even come to terms with all that?

an eye opening look into the justice system

there is so much id like to say but I'd have to write a novel. The deep dark world of corruption inside the justice system. There was definitely an agenda behind what was done to the innocent. I highly recommend this novel to everyone.
