Skip to comments.Redemption for Falsely Accused Rapist in the NFL
Posted on 08/12/2013 9:58:36 AM PDT by swampthang77
In 2002, Brian Banks was a successful high school football player, looking forward to playing in the NCAA, and eventually, the NFL. But while he would eventually go on to play for the Atlanta Falcons in 2013, that future looked impossible in 2002 when he faced a sentence of 41 years to life, after being accused of raping a classmate in high school...

She went through the money and went on welfare.
Ghetto-rat skank. Gee, what a surprise.
She should face his original sentence.
I hope this young man makes a zillion dollars as a NFL player and gets first nod Hall of Fame when he retires............
That would be justice. Maybe she should get worse, but at least that.
Wanetta Gibson — A heart-warming story of an Obama supporter “working hard” to care for herself and her family by any means necessary — The story will leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling in your gut all day.
Agreed. IMO, there should be a law for theft of freedom through false accusation.
f'n evil whores
Banks enemy now is age. He will be lucky to play two full seasons. The first major injury that he suffers will end his playing days.
Assuming he was 18 in 2002, he would be 29 now. He could probably do at least five seasons depending on his health and stamina. I hope he kept up his exercise regimen while in prison, and apparently did. He has been given a second chance, and I predict he will succeed very well..........
Should she not spend a few years in jail for what she did?
The headline is calling the innocent guy a “Rapist.”
IQ of around 85. "Gimme 'Dat" mentality.
Seeing this more and more, and not just on FR. I'm thinking that some sort of rubicon has been passed, only no one is talking about it. Or, maybe they've just not noticed, yet.
The Wannettas and tire-necked Rachel’s from Da Hood, are now largely shown as victims of bullying or economic class oppression. The Victim Card has largely trumped the fading influence of The Race Card. Both ‘Cards’ used together can produce mucho milage and lucrative benefit, for a while, till you overplay your hand. A lot can happen in your 15 minutes of infamy if you grab that brass ring and brandish it own ones’s knuckles while fighting ‘the system’.
Average career for an NFL running back is 3 years. That is at the age of 22 or 23 just out of college.
If he gets injured, NFL teams will consider him too old to recover and they will move on.
Banks signed with the Falcons on April 3, 2013, and will participate in Atlanta’s offseason workouts, which begin on April 22. He is competing for a spot on the team at inside linebacker. On August 8, 2013, Banks made his NFL debut in a preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals, where he picked up two tackles.
He will be making tackles, and hopefully a lot of them..........
If I was his Dad or his manager, I would advise him to go into Motivational Speaking. It takes incredible self control not to dump rage on this woman when he met up with her. I wouldn’t trust myself to stay that cool. Today’s football players get Mega-Huge, some close to 7 feet is not unheard of these days. No place for a near 30 year old. Get some endorsements, or offer a good line of products, like George Foreman did to re-invent himself.
Yeah, not nearly as much contact as running back...
