I haven't said anything about the sentence of this particular case. Only of the attitudes of those who look at him like an non-human animal.

This is 'Murrica. The real issue is not about "privilege." It's about what color you are.

http://www.rawstory.com/2016/06/wrongful...-sentence/

Quote:Brian Banks, a black former football star who spent five years in prison for a rape he didn’t commit, said he was flabbergasted by the six-month sentence handed down to a white former college swimmer.

Brock Turner — an All-American swimmer with Olympic aspirations — could have been sentenced to a maximum of 14 years in a state prison for his conviction on sexual assault, and prosecutors asked for a six-year term.

But Judge Aaron Persky imposed a lighter sentence — which could last only three months with good behavior — because he worried about the “severe impact” prison would have on the 23-year-old.

RE: Father doesn't think son should get 6MO for only 20 minutes of rape.
The victim herself has spoken about this.

I am in awe. She has not lost her humanity, she hasn't become bitter, she's not even vengeful. Read it. It's worth it. For someone who has been through hell to be this together... wow.

Something fairly notable is that she herself does not wish ill on her attacker. She addresses the unfairness of the sentencing but with logic and common sense. This is an amazing woman.

The real loser in this *is* Brock what-is-face. She has come back from this ordeal stronger. He will be a small man all his life. A whiny, entitled shit who cannot accept responsibility for his actions. He might even live a good life, full of money and power, once he's out of jail... but... he'll never in a million years match the worth of this girl.

I don't want the state to kill him. So that means we have to do something else and at the end of the day he will be back in society.

Passive aggressive. Look it up. That's talking oppositional without trying to take any responsibility for an indefensible position.

You know, posting, "I shouldn't have even posted" while all the time you're posting exactly what you wanted but without any ownership.

Sure let's not forget that he too was once a bright, bouncy, baby boy. That he too loves his mother. Cries when he's sad. Rapes unconscious people when conscious people don't heed his cries for help in the form of drunken attempts to seduce people.

Thanks for that link, Morondog. I cried, reading it. She is an amazing woman.

True. So we want to make an impression on him that rape is not anything he wants to do. It's not necessarily an addiction like some perversions, it's probably a crime of opportunity , lack of empathy and thoughtlessness. We can remove the opportunity and wait for some thoughtfulness regarding such situations to kick in.

With a father like that, and such a short sentence, I doubt he will learn anything from it. He needs to want to avoid this in the future.

*sigh*, don't worry, I've been long aware that you don't like how I conduct myself on here. While I'm pretty sure the passive aggressive characterization is mis-attributed. I own my words in that I try not to say anything I don't mean. However I'm not interested in conflict, nor do I care if you want to argue about my opinions.

I simply wish to express myself without being attacked. You can call that whatever you want.
