Football player sodomizes black disabled teammate with wire hanger, walks free {VIDEO}

The white football player who was the ringleader in a vicious sexual assault on a black mentally disabled teammate will not be put in jail or have to register as a sex offender. Idaho prosecutors allowed him to plead guilty to a lesser charge.

On Friday, John R.K. Howard pleaded guilty to a single felony count of injury to a child after he and two other teammates violently attacked the 18-year-old victim.

The horrific incident happened on October 23, 2015 when Howard, Tanner Ward and a third football player who cannot be named because he is a juvenile, pretended to give the disabled victim a hug. That is when they held him down and sodomized him with a coat hanger.

According to reports, the juvenile attacker then “kicked the coat hanger several times, forcing it farther into the victim’s body and causing rectal injuries that required treatment at a hospital.”


The sexual assault came after months of race-related bullying and discrimination against the victim. He was called “Kool-Aid,” “chicken-eater “ and the N-word by his fellow teammates.

Howard who has been called the ringleader “also posted a confederate flag on the plaintiff’s computer and demanded he learn and recite a racist song titled “Moonman Notorious KKK.”

Thanks to the plea deal, Howard will serve no jail time and chances are he will be able to have his conviction dismissed once he has successfully completed his probation.

Prosecutors have recommended he get at least 300 hours of community service for the rape committed. They also allowed him to maintain his innocence even though he pleaded guilty.

According to Deputy Attorney General Casey Hemmer, the behavior of the attackers was “egregious” it didn’t constitute a sex crime.

“We don’t believe it’s appropriate for Mr. Howard to suffer the consequences of a sex offender,” Hemmer stated. “But he still needs to be held accountable.”

The victim has a $10 million civil lawsuit pending against the district for its “deliberate indifference” towards the victim and his safety.

“Mr. Howard is a relative of prominent individuals in the community and, at least in part due to his athletic ability and community connections, the Defendants ignored or were deliberately indifferent to the behavior of Mr. Howard which included aggression, taunting and bullying of The Plaintiff and other students in the District,” according to the civil lawsuit. “With deliberate indifference, the Defendants did nothing to curb the vicious acts of Mr. Howard who brought with him from Texas a culture of racial hatred towards the Plaintiff.”

dumplins okay i hear you but since you put it like this with you and others who have not been so militant how many flies have you people catch, what have been the outcome, i mean not only me, but make the rest of us understand, all you people do is put together march that have not done nothing, you have a guy right there in NC dillan Ruth who assassinated 9 church members he admits to the FBI it was a hate crime and hated black people yet he is still alive, if he was black he would of been dead, you know why because white people have the balls and negros dont mean nothing to them, but all you people do is make excuses let me know when any one of you is ready to fight and i guaranty i will stand with you, i have enough weapons to form my own army i have been collecting weapons since i was 25 years old, i learn how to make self defense weapon since i was 28 years old, let me share a little secret with you i can say these things for two reasons i fear no men, two i know the FBI is all over the net let them come after me i will be the first black man on the news to not go to jail, even if i tell you people why you would still not have any balls, many of you sleeping with cowards who calls their selves men if you walk in your house and tell those cowards that a black man was messing with you they would grab their guns and go kill that black man, but they wouldnt even walk over to confront a white man they would make all types of excuses, this is what separate me from negros, i used my guns to kill white people a negro to me is just a distraction, my life would really have to be threaten to kill another black man, i hate you niggers with all that talk and preaching if you are weak and dont have the heart to fight stand on the side or sit down and wait to serve that white man in the morning but dont try to convince a black man like that there is no reason to fight when i have plenty and some more

Mr1stroke you dont have to be so militant all the time, you catch more flies with honny than with salt. You need balance with everything that is why there was a Malcom X and a Doctor King operating at the same time

and while they are using God as an excuse, they say the Jews are the people of God but every time i look at the news they are killing the Palestinians, bombing kids and in retaliation to what is being done to them, how come they are not relying on God alone, why are they fighting back, or are negros are just cowards and always have been afraid of the white men, white people are in church just like you but they are all have guns and always willing to kill only you not each other
