To the Editor:

Re: “Fairstein on Flip Side Of Rush to Judgment (June 21 column),” I don’t get the headline.

There has been no rush to judgment about Ms. Fairstein’s actions. The judgment that her actions were wrong and unjust has been years in the making and backed up by evidence.

Had she been even a little self-critical or offered some kind of apology over these many years since it’s been clear that the Central Park 5 had nothing to do with what Ms. Fairstein prosecuted them for, I don’t think the verdict against her would have been nearly as harsh.

The reaction comes from her now knowing the truth and doubling down on her position to prosecute. That won’t cut it; not in New York City anyway.
