Brian Banks Deserves 2nd Chance With NFL & Restitution Like Michael Vick (FORGIVENESS)


Its NOT enough for Mr. Banks to just be FREE after being Wrongfully Convicted & Imprisoned for a Rape Crime he NEVER Committed.

His Attorneys are also preparing to Sue the State of California for Restitution due to Wrongful Conviction & Incarceration.

I Concur with this Legal Action against the State of California 100%

According to his Attorneys he is Legally entitled to receive $100. Per Day for Wrongful Conviction & Incarceration from the State of California.

Considering he lost 10 Years of his Life due to NO Fault of his Own, I say He is entitled to that Money and Much, Much MORE!

TROY DAVIS was Executed by the State of Georgia NOT because he was Guilty but because they did NOT want to Pay Him Millions of Dollars for Wrongful Conviction & Incarceration.
Thus they MURDERED Troy & Stole his Organs.

As it relates to Mr. Banks' situation, No Amount of CASH can reverse the Damage done to His Life & Reputation, however a large amount of CASH will most Certainly Help him to move Forward.

Furthermore if the State of California had done their job accurately, Mr. Banks would NEVER have served one day in jail.

But since they did NOT, now its time to PAY Him in CASH!!

In addition California Law Enforcement Authorities should Prosecute his Accuser Wanetta Gibson & her Family for FRAUD & Lying to Law Enforcement Authorities because they Sued his former High School and Won a Huge Settlement based on LIES!

Has anyone notice that whenever a BLACK Citizen is Wronged by the American Criminal Justice System, Society & the Media just wants Us to FORGIVE, Forget & walk away as if NOTHING ever happened. aka "The Happy Slave" Attitude!

But Whenever a WHITE Citizen is Wronged by the American Criminal Justice System they receive a boat load of CASH, Movie & Book Deals!

While its True GOD Does want Human Beings to FORGIVE those who have Wronged them, he also Instructs Us in his Word (1 Samuel 30:8) to Pursue & Recover ALL after we have Forgiven.

So to Mr. Banks, his Family & his Attorneys I say YES Definitely SUE the State of California for RESTITUTION!


And YES Wanetta Gibson & her Family Should be Ordered to Repay the Money they STOLE from Mr. Banks High School Years ago.

Thank God He is FREE & Still ALIVE to Experience VICTORY!

Are there any NFL Teams Still Interested?

I believe BRIAN BANKS could be another Michael Vick!

So YES by all means please FORGIVE those who Wronged You but also GET YOUR CASH because you are Legally Entitled to it.

1 Samuel 30:8


Even the Bible Agrees with the Premise of Restitution.

Brian Banks Deserves Another Shot At The NFL & He Deserves Restitution.
The State of California Must Pay!
His Accuser Must Also Pay!

"But if it is actually Stolen from him, he shall make Restitution to its Owner."
Exodus 22:12

“If the sun be risen upon him, there shall be Blood shed for him; for he should make full Restitution; if he has nothing, then he shall be sold for his Theft.”
Exodus 22:3

“When the Savior returns, He shall ensure "the Restitution of all things,"
Acts 3:21

"Eight generations of African-Americans are still waiting to achieve their rights - compensation and restitution for the hundreds of years during which they were bought and sold on the market."
Cynthia McKinney

“We want Full Restitution ... so Black Farmers can move on with their Lives.”
John Boyd


Exonerated football star to NFL: Give me a chance

Now that Brian Banks has been exonerated of a rape conviction that put him in prison for five years, the one-time prep football star has a message for NFL coaches: Give him a chance.

After Thursday's emotional court hearing during which Banks broke down in tears, the 26-year-old said he wants to pursue his interrupted dream of playing professional football.

Appearing Friday on NBC's "Today" show", Banks said he just wants a chance from an NFL team.

"I think that any team that gives me an opportunity will be really impressed with what I can do despite all of what I've been through these past 10 years," Banks said.

It was the plan he left outside a prison door when he pleaded no contest to a childhood friend's false accusation of rape in 2002, a claim she has now recanted.

The hearing that changed Banks' life took only minutes. Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Brentford Ferreira said his office conceded the case should be dismissed. Superior Court Judge Mark C. Kim concurred and quickly announced it was over.

One of his first moves was to report to the probation office to have the electronic monitoring ankle bracelet removed — a felon no longer.

Banks said he is ready to move forward and is trying not to be angry.

"I couldn't ask for more today," he told reporters after Thursday's hearing. "But there is always the question of why did it have to happen in the first place? Why wasn't I heard with the truth of what happened when I was 16?"

Even after he was released from prison, he could not get work because he was a registered sex offender and had a felony record.

Before the charges, Banks was a star middle linebacker at Long Beach Polytechnic High School and was attracting interest from college football powerhouses as the University of Southern California, Ohio State University and the University of Michigan, according to the website, which tracks the recruiting of high school football and basketball players.

He verbally agreed to a full scholarship at USC.

Then, a teenage girl he had known since childhood claimed he had raped her. He was arrested and, on advice of counsel, pleaded no contest to rape and an enhancement of kidnapping in order to avoid a possible life sentence if tried by a jury.

According to CBS Los Angeles, Banks said his defense attorney told him, "'When you go into that courtroom the jury is going to see a big black teenager and you're automatically going to be assumed guilty.' Those are her exact words."

His story is a triumph for the California Innocence Project which took up his case and illustrates the growing trend toward taking a new look at convictions. But Justin Brooks, head of the program at California Western University in San Diego, said this was the first case he had championed for someone already out of prison. He felt it was not too late to right a wrong for Banks and turn his life around.

The key, said Brooks, was the woman's admission she had lied. And it came out of the blue.

After serving five years and two months in prison, Banks was released, and a strange thing happened. Wanetta Gibson, the woman who claimed he had attacked her on the high school campus when she was 15, contacted him on Facebook and asked to meet with him.

He recalled being stunned. "I thought maybe it wasn't real. How could she be contacting me?"

He said he knew that if he became angry when he met with her it wouldn't help, so he struggled to keep calm.

"I stopped what I was doing and got down on my knees and prayed to God to help me play my cards right," he said.

In two meetings, she said she had lied and offered to help him clear his name, but there was a catch. She did not want to return a $1.5 million payment from a civil suit brought by her mother against the Long Beach schools.

She refused to repeat her new story to prosecutors but they accepted the account which had been secretly videotaped by the defense.

It was uncertain whether Gibson will have to return the money and unlikely she would be prosecuted for making the false accusation so long ago.

Gibson did not attend the hearing and she could not be reached for comment. Prosecutors and defense attorneys said they were unable to find her recently.

At the press conferences that followed the court hearing, Brooks appealed to NFL teams to give Banks a chance. He said Banks has been training six days a week to get in shape for the career he wants.

"He has the speed and the strength. He certainly has the heart," Brooks said. "I hope he gets the attention of people in the sports world."

Gil Brandt, an NFL draft consultant, said Banks would be eligible to sign with any team that might show interest. However, his years away from the game will be hard to overcome.

"History tells us guys who come back after one or two years away when they go into the service find it awfully hard," Brandt said. "And this has been much longer a time."

Brandt compared the challenge to someone who has been out of high school for years trying to get an A in their first class in college.

Banks said he is ready for the challenge.

"It's been a struggle. But I'm unbroken, and I'm still here today," the tall, muscular Banks said, tears flowing down his face.

Outside court, Banks donned a sweatshirt that read: "Innocent."
