The five boys were falsely convicted of the rape of a white woman, Patricia Meili, in Central Park in the spring of The five boys were paraded in front of the media after, they say, they were intimidated by NYPD officers into falsely confessing their involvement in the assault — despite no DNA evidence linking them to the scene of the crime. These videotaped confessions would later go on to secure convictions against all five boys in one of the most closely watched trials of the decade. Michael K Williams was 22 when the incident took place, living in the neighboring borough of Brooklyn.
He recalls that period with anger. Seeing them failed, and feeling like something was not adding up.
Williams, now 52 and best known for his role as Omar Little in The Wire, plays Bobby McCray , father of Antron, one of the five boys falsely convicted. Some of the most moving sequences are the intimate moments between parent and child as the adults are forced to explain the brutal realities of policing to children of colour.

Four ball was added to the tournament beginning with the Ryder Cup. As for the biggest amateur team international tournaments: The Walker Cup does not use four ball, the Curtis Cup does.
So how does scorekeeping work in a four ball match? On the first hole, all four golfers tee off, and all four golfers in the match play their own golf balls until holed.
The partners compare scores: Which of them made the better score on the hole? And Side 2, in this example, wins the first hole, 3 to 4. In a stroke-play four ball tournament, the two golfers on a side mark down the lower of their two scores on each hole, then tally it up at the end of the round and compare that total to the field.
