“Bunch of wise-asses out in the park last night.  Hassling bicyclists, beating up people.  They’re only 13, 14 at most.  Parents are coming in for family court tickets.  What’s that?  I don’t know.  One of them said it.  Wake up.” — Detective Farrell

“Soon, right?  That’s all he’s gonna be talking about.  How long you been at Imperial?  That’s a good job.  Good benefits, good pay.  Your supervisor know about your past, Bobby?  He knows you did time, right?  Maybe not, huh?  Why don’t you talk some sense into your kid?  We both want him to go home tonight, right?  Right?  Get up!” — Detective Hildebrandt

Linda Fairstein, When They See Us, Netflix, Harpo Films, Tribeca Productions, ARRAY, Participant Media, Felicity HuffmanLinda Fairstein

“It’s bad?  Uh-huh.  Any press here yet?  Still alive?  What the fuck was she doing here? Uh… time of discovery?  Could… ah-ah!  Could you… let’s make sure to get these drag marks.  He dragged her in.  Just like… right there.  Look, clear as day.  His footsteps.  Her body.  Fucking hell.” — Linda Fairstein

“I gotta get this statement out.  There are a few reporters out there.  The assault on the female jogger occurred in the North Park at approximately, um… let’s say between 10:00 to 11:00 p.m.  The jogger is believed to have been running on… the East Drive when she was struck on the back of the head, dragged into the brush, severely beaten, and raped.  Sheeha, who’s here?  Did you pick up any gays or homeless or anything?  You know, maybe somebody saw something.  Oh, yeah?  Okay, what is this?  ‘Willing?’  ‘Wheeling–‘ what is that?  What’s ‘wilding?'” — Linda Fairstein

“Detective Farrell.  What happened to that one?  What’s ‘wilding?’  You said on your report here they were ‘wilding.’  What’s that mean?  Hey.  What were you doing in the park last night?  Did you see some bad guys out there doing some bad things?  Um… who were you… who were you out in the park with?  Mm-hm.  Yeah.  Out ‘wilding’ with Tron, huh?  No?  Is Tron here?  No?  Okay.  What’s Tron’s name and address?  It’s okay.  Uh-huh.  It’s cool.  That’s cool.  Thank you.  So you were just gonna let possible witnesses to a rape go on a family court ticket?  Wake these kids up and start getting some information.  We’ve got a lady raped and clinging to life here.  I want their interviews on my desk immediately so I can put together a timeline.  Let’s work.” — Linda Fairstein

“Multiple attacks.  9:00 p.m., confirmed.  110th… okay.  9:10… okay, bicyclists confirmed on East Drive.  9:15… first walking patron confirmed assault on East Drive.  Hey.  Farrell’s interviews with the boys are in.  All this is happening in the park… and it’s not connected?  They’re not witnesses.  They’re suspects.” — Linda Fairstein

“Put a call into the DA’s office and ask Elizabeth Lederer.  I want her on this.  This is a sex crimes unit.  It’s not a homicide.  What happened in Central Park is a sex crime.  When you gave me this unit to run, Robert, it was for exactly this kind of case.  Well, I got there before you.  I’ve had precinct guys here interviewing suspects… …in custody.  And beating up joggers.  A public school teacher’s at Metropolitan with a fractured skull.  I’m about to get Rosario to the hospital to interview him.  Right now, these kids… these kids were on a rampage.  Before you decide, Robert, just… just hear me out.  There were 3,412 rapes reported to the NYPD last year.  3,412 times someone was assaulted, held down, threatened, degraded… forced.  This has gone way beyond problematic.  This is an epidemic.  We are not in control.  And we can be.” — Linda Fairstein

“These males terrorized bicyclists here.  They put two guys in the hospital with head injuries here.  A 50-year-old man they attacked here, and a public school teacher jogging at the reservoir.  And way up here… they brutally raped a woman and discarded her like a piece of garbage.  Left her for dead.  Bleeding, bound.  Naked.  And to think we were gonna release these animals to family court and put them back on the streets.  I got a question.  For all of you.  At 9:30, they’re terrorizing folks here.  At 10:00, one of them is raping the female jogger here.  What happened in the half-hour in between?  What did these animals do between here and here?  Hm?  Are there other victims still in the park?  I need that whole group.  I have some of them and descriptions of others, but I need all of them.  Every young black male who was in the park last night is a suspect in the rape of that woman who is fighting for her life right now.  I want units out strong… come on, guys.  What did we miss?  Let’s get an army of blue up in Harlem.  You go into those projects and you stop every little thug you see.  You bring in every kid who was in the park last night.” — Linda Fairstein

“We’ve got suspects, we’ve got kids in custody.  Interrogate.  Make them name their accomplices.  This is not business as usual.  The press is crawling all over this.  No kid gloves here.  These are not kids.  They raped this woman.  Our lady jogger deserves this.” — Linda Fairstein

“That’s a 45-minute discrepancy.  No, it’s still out of whack.  How can these same kids be raping her at the same time they’re jumping bicyclists way over there?  Sheehan, what do you think about the, you know, ‘I got lost in the ball field’ bullshit we keep hearing about?  Yeah, me neither.  If there’s no ball field, they have plenty of time to attack and rape her.  Yeah.  Well, it happened, so obviously there was.” — Linda Fairstein

“We still gotta tape ’em.  Those are grass stains?  Be sure to get that, okay?  Ms. Salaam, it’s too late.  He waived the attorney.  His legal ID says he’s 16.  Can I see the birth certificate?  You’re gonna call the Times?  You can’t stop us from interrogating a suspect.  Who do you think you are?” — Linda Fairstein

“Counselor Lederer.  Morning.  Here’s the latest on the new case.  I’ve been working on this all night.   Yeah.  Then they all start lying.  Our case… is they’re all guilty.   Each of these boys assaulted Patricia Meili.  They all raped her.  And we know this because in each of these boys’ confessions, they all bear eyewitness against each other.  You think it’s weak.  All we need is for one of these little shits to tie this whole thing together.  Mike, we still got one more, right?  Mm-hm.  He’s the one.  He’s the glue.  We’ll make sure he sticks it together.” — Linda Fairstein

“Hi.  Okay.  When these kids are given the facts of the first bicycle assaults, we see moments where their stories actually align with each other.  When we arrive at the rape– lying?  Try five different versions.  Okay, you’ve got Raymond saying, ‘it wasn’t me.  It was Kevin.’  Kevin saying, ‘not me, it was Antron who did it.’  And then Antron goes… ‘oh, wait, it was some mysterious tall black guy who assaulted her.’  And then he doubles down and has the whole cast of characters raping her.  Except for himself, who pulled out his penis and only pretended to rape her.  I’ve gotta face a judge and prosecute this, Linda.  What is your case?  I’m imagining myself walking into that courtroom armed with a stack of wildly conflicting statements, no physical evidence, no weapon.” — Elizabeth Lederer

“This kid is a dumpster fire.  He says he didn’t rape her.  He says he didn’t actually witness it.  You’ve lost Yusef and Antron and you don’t have a location.  The biggest issue isn’t that their statements don’t match.  It’s that nothing these boys state matches the central facts of the crime.  So, Meili was found raped and beaten by a muddy area half a mile north of the reservoir.  All of them say the attack happened beside the reservoir.  So, did they rape her there and then drag her half a mile?  Where is the physical evidence to support that?  Well, make sure this kid knows where he actually was.” — Elizabeth Lederer

“Korey, I have been informed by the detectives that you wish to make a statement.  You wish to say something?  Okay, before you say it, let me just stop you and let me say what I need to say.  Let me give you your rights again.  You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer any questions.  Do you understand?  Anything you say may be used against you in court.  Do you understand?  You have a right to consult a lawyer before questioning and have a lawyer present during questioning.  Now that I’ve advised you of your rights, are you willing to tell me the truth about the woman who was assaulted in Central Park on the night of April 19th, 1989?  And who is ‘we?’  Was Yusef there?  Okay, when you say… you… they were raping her… um… how did they get her down to where you found the blood?” — Elizabeth Lederer
