Ladies, gentlemen and gender non-conforming individuals,
Our justice system has failed us.
Brock Turner aka The Stanford Rapist (no not the Stanford swimmer, call him what he is; a rapist) was released from prison yesterday.
He did 3 months. Ironically he got out early for “good behavior.”
Half of what the judge actually gave him. But let’s be honest, 6 months wasn’t enough. Not when the recommended minimum sentence was a few years.
But the judge believed that prison “would have a large impact” on poor little Brock the Rapist. Interesting that he cared so much about Brock – who is a rapist- but clearly didn’t give a damn about the woman who’s life Brock (the Stanford Rapist) ruined forever.
A young woman in her early twenties who was forced to relive some of the worst moments of her life in front of a full court room with cameras. A young woman who wrote a heartbreaking letter – one that will bring any person with a heart to tears – to the man who ruined her life. A young woman who just wanted to have a good time with her little sister and instead was taken advantage of. And what did the judge do for her? Nothing. Not a damn thing, except proved that the justice system of the United States of America is severely and disgustingly flawed.
Caught in the act of raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster and only served 3 months in jail.
This is the world we live in.
