Re: Brian Banks

DNA wasn't necessary - he admitted he had sex with her. He just asserted it was consensual.

Re: Brian Banks

The prosecutors were faced with a he said/she said rape case. Sure, in this instance they were wrong. In many other instances, if such cases aren't pursued, more than one or two rapists walk free. You want things black and white with no grey? You're living in the wrong universe.

No matter how hard we wish it didn't - sometimes bad things happen to good people and evil goes unpunished. Right now, society owes this young man a debt it can't repay. Hopefully, steps will be taken to right as much of the wrong as possible.

IMO being free is being free.

Re: Brian Banks

The problem I have with the system is now that we know she lied she is not getting prosecuted for any crime. WTF is that all about. That little bitch should rot in jail for the 40 yrs he pleaded down to 5. I hope for him he makes an NFL team and can live out his child hood dream and that little bitch rots in hell.

Yeah I'm a little unclear on that myself. Are you saying being under house arrest or being constantly monitored/not allowed to leave the state is being free? Or having to register as a sex offender thereby limiting career options is being free?

100% correct. Had he decided to go to trial then the Prosecuter would have had the burden to prove there was some form of sexual encounter. But partially his lawyers fault, presented his client with the fact his case didn't look good and if he takes it to a trial and loses he would be looking at 40 yrs in jail. Instead the young man took the plea agreement (basically saying he did it or that there was enough proof to possibly find him guilty) and got the 5 yrs jail, 5yrs home monitering.

The weird fact is apparently all they did was go behind the school and kiss, but she stated they had sex. He was admitting they had sex (consensually) even though they did not. One would think that if he was getting arrested the same day it happened then the detectives would have taken her to the hospital to determin if she had had sex earlier that day. Unless all the evidence was inconclusive. Which would be weird. Nothing adding up but believing her story?

In any case he basically admitted it happened and took the lesser punishment. Hopefully his civil suit works for him cause I'm wondering if the fact he took the plea would wash the gov from any wrong doing. If he denied and went to trial and was found guilty then I could see him winning this case.

He has a better chance of going after the girl with a civil suit then he does the gov. I'm shocked the public is not putting pressure on the prosecuters office and the school board to go after this girl and or her family for the false police report and to have them pay the county back in some way or fashion. I'd be pissed if my local gov made this mistake and was not going to right the wrong.

If she has kids we can do them a favor either give them to their fathers or put them in foster care where they won't grow up to do the same stupid crap learning from her.
I laughed my ass of that you put fathers with the s!!!!!

Yes! That is the problem. The decision to let her slide is just.....incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial.....

According to Banks and his private investigator, Gibson refused to tell prosecutors that she had lied, so that she wouldn't have to return the $1.5-million settlement her family won in court after suing the Long Beach Unified School District.

Re: Brian Banks

Prosecutors are oftentimes so hungry for a conviction, that they'll send the wrong man to jail for a crime that he didn't even commit. It's twenty years later after Mike Tyson's rape conviction, and I still doubt very seriously if Tyson raped Desire Washington. Women have a way of playing the victim and getting everyone to sympathize with them even if they are telling a damn lie.

I don't know all the facts either, but unfortunately you really don't need evidence to get a conviction. Just enough of the jury to believe her word over his. Would you roll the dice for 41 vs. 5 years?

Re: Brian Banks

Brian had a solo tryout with the Seahawks today and was so impressive that he has been invited to train with the rest of the team next week.

I wouldnt say, by the reports, that he was "so impressive" but he has been invited back.
