Life Netflix show When They See Us again under fire By weekster Posted on October 16, 2019 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ A Chicago company has sued Netflix and program maker Ava DuVernay (47) for statements made in the When They See Us series. The company demands that the “Central Park Five” series be removed from the streaming service until the statements are removed from the show. John E. Reid & Associates came up with the so-called Reid technique, a form of police interrogation. In the series about the five wrongly convicted minors, this technique is exposed. When They See Us is a drama series based on the five true stories. In the fourth episode of the show, someone talks to a New York police force investigator about the use of the technique. “You’ve decrypted them statements after 42 hours of questioning and pressuring, without food, without toilet breaks, without any parents,” the character says. “The Reid technology has been rejected worldwide.” The company sees this statement as a reproach, and in addition to removing the passage also demands an unknown amount of money. Netflix and Ava DuVernay have not responded to the charges on Monday night.
