Rich White Rapist Gets 6 Months, Serves 3

02 Sep


Three months after he received a lenient punishment for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman at Stanford University, Brock Turner left the Santa Clara County Main Jail on Friday morning, having served half of a six-month sentence that drew a furious public response.

Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky was widely criticized for levying a six-month jail sentence rather than the six-year prison term prosecutors had sought. And the judge’s comments that day — he said of Turner, “A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him. I think he will not be a danger to others.” — fueled talk of race and privilege both in America’s criminal justice system and on its college campuses.

Persky, who’s a Stanford graduate, was later removed from a new and unrelated sexual assault case; last week, his request to be reassigned to civil court was granted.

America deserves a Donald Trump presidency.  I think I’ll vote for Trump to hasten the inevitable.  Just tear the bandage off all at once, as it were.  Justice in America is well and truly dead.
