    Yeah, the criminal justice system values women :lol: It's so pays to be rich and white

    Widespread outrage has erupted over a California judge's decision to give a former Stanford University swimmer a six-month jail sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. Critics are blasting the decision as far too lenient.

    Prosecutors had asked that Brock Turner be sentenced to six years in prison for the January 2015 assault.

    The controversial sentence was followed by the release of two dueling letters to the judge about the case that have been widely shared and sparked further outcry: one from the victim, who described her ordeal in 12 searing pages; and another from Turner's father, who dismissed his son's crime as "20 minutes of action."

    Turner, 20, was convicted in March of the intent to commit rape of an intoxicated/unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person.

    :facepalm:

    In justifying Turner’s sentence, Persky said that Turner’s age and lack of criminal history factored into his decision.

    “A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” said Persky. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”

    As a lawyer, you're not aware that a person's history is a factor in sentencing? :confused:

    I of course am aware, but when a person is convicted of a felony, say like murder or rape, the punishment is supposed to fit the crime, it's a "justice" system. We aren't supposed to get a free pass because it's out first arrest and conviction.

    I bet Brock is going to be very popular in county prison.

    ...does he have to register as a sex offender? i would think so. i didnt follow this story but 6 months for raping an unconscious woman sounds like a light sentence to me unless they throw him in the womens jail and let them beat the shit out of him for 6 months. fucking low life asshole.

    Even women don't get it--this was a letter of support from one of his female friends

    a letter from Turner’s childhood friend Leslie Rasmussen to Judge Persky. In it, she includes a photo of Turner smiling and says there’s no way Brock could ever be a rapist, because “he was always the sweetest to everyone,” going so far as to call “the whole thing a huge misunderstanding.”

    She blames accusations of campus rape on political correctness, writing:

    I don’t think it’s fair to base the fate of the next ten + years of his life on the decision of a girl who doesn’t remember anything but the amount she drank to press charges against him. I am not blaming her directly for this, because that isn’t right. But where do we draw the line and stop worrying about being politically correct every second of the day and see that rape on campuses isn’t always because people are rapists.

    Rasmussen also says that alcohol-fueled sexual assaults perpetrated by young college students are not the same as when a woman is abducted and assaulted:

    This is completely different from a woman getting kidnapped and raped as she is walking to her car in a parking lot. That is a rapist. These are not rapists. These are idiot boys and girls having too much to drink and not being aware of their surroundings and having clouded judgement.
