Wherein the Criminal is Innocent and the Victim is Criminal

Posted on

Humble. What triumph over tragedy looks like in person.

 

“I’ve had my moments where I was very angry and very vengeful but I know it was best for me to try and move forward in a positive manner for the betterment of me,” he said. “It hurts no one but myself to hang on to that type of negative energy.”

This is one of my few serious posts. I read this story on msnbc of Brian Banks, a young man with the prospect of a professional football career ahead of him, wrongly convicted of rape by an accuser who later admitted to lying, but when was asked to give an official statement refused, because “she was worried she would have to return a $1.5 million payment from a civil suit” following the criminal case. Her greedy, reckless lie has forever changed the life of this man, and also has done damage to real survivors of sexual assault. That is disgusting. But in the face of such horrific behavior, Brian has maintained a remarkably positive attitude and is appreciating the opportunity to freely live his life, and still hopes to try out for NFL teams. Sending well wishes his way!
