Earlier today we wrote about the Clinton High School basketball player who was arrested at CHS for beating up his girlfriend, and still played in his team’s loss to St. John’s later that night.
Well, we’ve got a couple updates on this winner, Heriberto Rojas. For starters, we have confirmed with multiple sources that on the day he was arrested CHS Principal Jim Hastings and CHS head boy’s basketball coach Tony Gannon both went to Clinton District Court, vouched for the kid, and had the judge release him into their custody so that they could drive him to Fitchburg District Court, where he was once again released to them and allowed to play that night. No bail was required. But the mere fact that the only thing that the principal and coach could think of during the school day after finding out their star player beat up a woman, was “we need to get this kid in the lineup for the game tonight” is pretty terrible. Heriberto was quite pleased though:
Free my boi!!
This is also Tony Gannon’s final season in a 30 year career at Clinton High School. His team did very well last season, and winning seems to be the only thing that matters to him right now. Sad.
Let’s check out what Heriberto “Junior” Rojas had to say about the victim recently on social media:
All I want for Christmas is a hoodrat to English dictionary. Some of the things these geniuses write are absolutely painful to read. But from the looks of it this upstanding future Ivy League student is mad at this “hoe ass bitch” because she went home with his best friend from a party and “drive up and fuck him in his car.” Naturally instead of becoming upset with his “friend” who apparently has no regard for their friendship, he turns his anger on the girl, threatens to “swing” at her, and offers to inbox pictures of “this hoe” to anyone who wants to see him “expose” her.
Yup. This is the student that coach Tony Gannon and Principal Jim Hastings went out of their way to go to bat for. Such a fine and upstanding individual. I’m sure there was no truth to the domestic violence charge. It’s not like he’s ever shown any signs that he’s capable of that on social media. Definitely not.
He wasn’t done though. The comments on that post were even better. Next he started accusing her of being a “had ass hoe” who had “a train ran” on her:
When someone wisely pointed out that it might be ill advised to brag about taking a swing at a woman on Facebook, he agreed to tone it down. LOL. Just kidding, he told her to close her legs so that “more n words” won’t “get her prego again”:
Because degrading females just seems to be his specialty:
It’s cool though, because it was her fault:
Sounds like someone’s got a case of the Dindu Nuffins.
And when someone mentioned his brother’s similar arrest, he handled it the only way he knew how – by challenging the other guy to meet him at the projects presumably to exchange fisticuffs:
But most of his friends seem to support him and have piled on the victim:
And as you can see, the 100 emojis were flowing like cheap wine:
Free my boi!!
Oh yea, and the principal and the coach should probably be keeping an eye on their star player’s social media account if they want to gauge his character. Because he flagrantly posts about violating MIAA rules, like getting wasted:
Pictures of rolling blunts:
Posing as the international symbol of drug dealers everywhere by pretending to talk into a phone made of hundred dollar bills:
Covering himself in ice and tattoos
And even rocking the manbun
All of this information could’ve been easily accessed by the coach and principal. They knew it was all there, and they knew the type of person they were going to bat for. But they did it anyway because basketball was more important than protecting women from domestic violence. The crazy part about this is that the principal left the school for hours on end, all for this kid. Ya got that? The guy who is in charge of running the building ditched his responsibilities so this asshat could play basketball in a game in which they had no shot at winning against St. John’s.
Not sure how many classes Tony Gannon teaches, or even what subject, because the district’s website just lists him as “teacher”:
But faculty members shouldn’t be leaving school during school hours unless they’re taking a personal day. But I guess neglecting the hundreds of other kids in the school who don’t beat women is less important than making sure this manbun dooshnozzle gets to play basketball.
