Stanford Swimmer Who Raped Unconscious Woman Gets Remarkably Short Sentence

Brock Allen Turner, 20, who was discovered raping an unconscious woman on the Stanford University campus in January 2015, got sentenced to six months in jail because a longer sentence would have had a ‘severe impact on him’, according to the judge.

Turner, who is from Dayton, Ohio, was discovered raping his victim behind a dumpster outside of a fraternity house. He assaulted a 23-year-old woman he allegedly met at a campus party. The woman had no memory of the incident, and was reported to have a blood alcohol level 3 times the legal limit, according to New York Magazine.

#ItsNotHerFault: Rape of 16-Year-Old Girl by 33 Men in Brazil Sparks Outrage Worldwide

The perpetrator was tackled by a group of students that witnessed him raping her, and handed him over to the police. He should have faced five different felony charges for this single crime: one count of raping an unconscious person, one count of raping an intoxicated person, two counts of sexual penetration with a foreign object, and one count of assault while attempting to commit rape.

Prosecutors recommended that Turner receive a six-year prison sentence.

However, Judge Aaron Persky determined that Turner's age and lack of criminal history warranted him a much shorter sentence.

"A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him," Persky said at Turner's sentencing on Thursday. "I think he will not be a danger to others."

Turner has voluntarily withdrawn from school and has been forbidden to enter the campus.

Those 3 lifetime sentences and 40 years of solitary confinement must leave our sons and relatives jumping for joy!!! You folks can lock everything up for breathing forever and a damn day; your pale asses can only serve six months for trauma. You pale fuckers are like 2 legged polar bears. Our entire lives are in your hands and heaps of you are battier than Ronald McDonald. You fuckers suffer from Severe Cave Syndrome. Too damn many bats shit on your ancestors. Gave all of you Bat Shit Sickness of the entire Brain. Maybe they had too many interactions with the dogs or drank too much blood from all that raw meat they ate. Where'd they wash their hands or anything else?  Wonder if they just spit on them.

Something's wrong with you; seriously wrong with all of you. Only God knows what transpired with  the genitalia. He's still suffering from shock about that. Your ancestors probably had Him calling on Jesus Christ every 5 minutes for the crossing of His eyes and non-stop regurgitation.

It sure would be cool if someone on this planet had balls big enough to give you a taste of your own hateful medicine. Like to see one of you locked up for 3 damn lifetimes and another given 40 years of solitary confinement. If you were ever set free, you'd slaughter everything breathing on the planet in retaliation.'

White people like to lock everyone up in cages. The ones that should be locked up are them and the keys thrown in the Ohio River alongside Muhammad Ali's Gold Medal.

America's (IN)Justice System; the best "Justice" Money Can Buy

Some old dude from Germany says in about 100 segments on YouTube that white folks aren't human. Must be related to Squirrel Head. Something's definitely wrong with him.

We've never found out what kind of folks "white" folks are. They might be some kind of extra terrestrials from some other planet. I can't stay interested in ole German homeboy to find out what his explanation is. Something's wrong with people whose skin turns into crepe paper and they have to slather eighty slabs of makeup on to look either presentable or scare your ass half to death.

Brigitte Bardot had men doing everything all over themselves back in the day. Take a look at her today, she'll cure all intestinal problems one has ever had. Of course she's an elder, but so is Betty White, and she's still pretty' the only one. If you don't know who I'm talking about, Google. I can go back to remembering Pope Pius the Twelfth, vaguely. Strange looking Italian dude is why I can still remember him.

If he was BLACK?  He would have gotten life.  They just don't like it when black men get that booty.  But white men?  Can have it alllllllllllllllllll day and night only get a slap on the hand...when they violate another person's body.  THAT IS ENTITLEMENT...and PRIVILEGE.  I dunno why ain't no media saying anything about this.  Already they are attempting to put the woman whose son fell in the gorilla site in jail.  When white people do the SAME action...always given different OUTCOME.  We need to confront them on this....otherwise they gon keep doing it.  But!

14-Year-Old Anti-Trump Protester Charged as Adult for Allegedly Throwing Rock at Cops

When protests outside a Trump rally in New Mexico turned ugly last month, a 14-year-old got in on the action, allegedly hurling a rock at a police officer. Now, the youngster, Marcus Griego, is being charged as an adult, hit with two felony counts of aggravated battery on a peace officer, KRQE reported.

“The commander actually witnessed Marcus throw a rock directly and hit the sergeant that was standing next to him,” Celina Espinoza, spokeswoman for the Albuquerque police, told KRQE, adding that “Marcus kinda laughed it off and kinda just pretended it wasn’t a big deal.”

Griego’s attorney, Tom Clear, believes that prosecutors are going overboard with the felony charges, and with treating his client like an adult instead of a juvenile. Currently, Griego is being held at a juvenile facility on $10,000 bail, after the district attorney’s office asked for $20,000. Police appeared willing to go easier on the kid, saying they’d be willing to have Griego go on police ride-alongs or work in the horse stables as punishment. “We don’t want to make an example out of a 14-year-old. We want to be able to guide and lead him in the right direction,” Espinoza said.

Police say 30 suspects attacked officers outside the event, but so far just three have been arrested.

This Trump shit's Satanic. There's no leniency with anything done these days. There's always a lock up pending. I feel sorry for Marcus Griego, but had he been black his parents would be planning his funeral. There must be something in the food or the water, but people in America have lost everything that used to make America fun sometimes. That's ALL GONE!!!!!

  @  Brotha RR.  Excellent point.  Absolutely.  So.   Where in the fock are our black attorneys?  And how come a layman can see this....but!  The brotha representing this black man can't?  I mean there are many cases like this brotha....all dude had to do was pull a couple of files to make his point.  So to me?  Those representing black men are dropping the ball...PURPOSELY.  Cuz all you needed was your father to write a letter to a judge during sentencing?  Well...I'm sure there are black family members who would have done the same for black men who now are sentenced to more than 10 years or life sentences in prison.  What happened?  Just askin'.  But!

Let’s Not Ignore The Importance Of Brock Turner’s Whiteness

If Turner was black he wouldn’t be serving a six-month sentence.

“His life will never be the one he dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve.” - Dan Turner, father of the accused.

The narrative surrounding Brock Turner, from day one of his arrest, has been all about his “potential.” A Stanford student, a champion swimmer with Olympic aspirations, only 20 years old with no prior convictions — the concept of Turner’s potential has been at the center of his defense.

It’s Turner’s potential that kept the police and most media outlets from sharing his true mugshot from the night of his arrest in 2015, a mugshot quite different than the clean-cut, wide-eyed, innocent photo from his sentencing that has been so widely circulated in the last several days. 

His potential is what inspired his father, Dan Turner, to send a letter to the judge asking for leniency in his son’s sentencing, writing: “His life will never be the one he dreamed about and worked so hard to achieve. That is a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action out of his 20 plus years of life.” 

And his potential is what ultimately moved Judge Aaron Perksy to sentence him to just six months in a California prison instead of the six year-sentence prosecutors originally asked for, because a long prison sentence “would have a severe impact on him.” Six months for a young man guilty of three counts of sexual assault. Six months for someone who assaulted an unconscious young women behind a dumpster. But potential really has nothing to do with how easily he got off.

“Potential,” in this case, is just another word for whiteness. 

It has been pointed out throughout this case that the framing of Turner as a star athlete with everything to lose, a young misguided man who simply needs another chance,epitomizes the way rape culture operates. We’re socialized to question the victim, use the fact that she was intoxicated to poke holes in her accusations, while bending over backwards to highlight all the “good qualities” in her attacker.  

Here, rape culture and “race” culture intersect in a disturbing, but unsurprising way. Let’s just state the obvious: if Brock Turner were black or Latino, the likelihood of him getting a measly 6-month sentence for a brutal sexual assault would be very slim. His wealth, his gender and his whiteness have played a huge role in his protection, and we must acknowledge that. 

It’s already a known fact that incarceration rates disproportionately impact men of color, and that black convicts are more likely to receive long sentences than their white counterparts. And no, this isn’t because people of color are just more prone to crime. It’s because our highly flawed criminal justice system is steeped in racial bias

There is a long history in this country of black men being unfairly accused of rape. From Jesse Washington to Emmett Till, young black men have historically been branded as naturally predatory and sex-crazed, they’ve been found guilty by all white juries (if they even got a trial) on trumped up charges and false evidence. They’ve been lynched, executed, sentenced to lifetimes in prison. Why? Because there is no “potential” in blackness. 

When five young black and Latino boys ranging in ages from 14 to 16 at the time of their arrests were handed decades-long sentences for the rape of a Central Park jogger in 1989, no one thought of their potential. No one was concerned with how long prison terms might affect them at such young ages. No one pondered how their punishment might impact the lives they dreamed of having. They were black, and they were poor, and that was enough. 

But in the case of young white men like Turner or Owen Labrie of St. Paul’s Prep School, it’s somehow easier to humanize them, to look at their transgressions as youthful mistakes. This has always been at the center of the disconnect in how we view black and white youth. A young white man sexually assaults a girl and it’s a terrible but once-in-a-lifetime mistake. A young black boy like 17-year-old Trayvon Martin is shot and killed for absolutely no reason at all, but a few photos of him flashing gold teeth or playfully throwing up the “West-Side” sign are used as a means for justifying his death

To be absolutely clear: the injustice of Brock Turner’s light sentencing does not mean we should absolve guilty black rapists. It doesn’t mean that their sentences should be lighter, too. It doesn’t mean that their crimes are not just as heinous, or just as worthy of punishment. It isn’t racist to convict a proven rapist for his crimes, no matter his race.The point here is that all accused rapists should face the same kind of scrutiny under the law.

When Judge Persky said that a long prison sentence would have a “severe impact” on Turner, was he thinking of the blonde-haired, blue-eyed athlete surrounded by a sea of threatening black and brown faces? Out of place? Out of his element? Forced to rough it among the types of nefarious characters who he shares nothing in common with? Despite the fact that the one common thread, the most important, is that he, too, is a criminal?

We need to question why we’re more likely to give young white men the benefit of the doubt, why we’re more likely to protect them and shelter them — even when they deserve the same punishment that every one else gets. We need to shift the narrative away from “potential,” and accept the fact that race shouldn’t play a role in how guilty or not guilty a criminal is, or how long the sentence he or she gets.  

All these black/white racially mixed people are the result of the sexual encounters of the black men and women. White folks had NOTHING to do with THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prospective Jurors Boycott Judge Aaron Persky As 1 Million People Demand His Recall

Persky has faced mounting opposition since his sentencing of Brock Turner, the ex-Stanford swimmer found guilty of sexual assault.

“I can’t be here, I’m so upset,” one prospective juror reportedly told Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky on Wednesday.

“I can’t believe what you did,” said another.

These two individuals were among several prospective jurors who reportedly refused to serve under Persky in a misdemeanor stolen property case.

Persky is the judge who presided over Brock Turner’s sentencing for sexual assault.

The East Bay Times said at least 10 prospective jurors declined to serve in the unrelated case. KPIX-TV said the number was double that, and the jurors cited the judge as a hardship. 

Confirmed: potential jurors refusing to serve under judge. Citing as hardship. 20 let go yesterday.@CBSSF

 

Persky has faced mounting opposition since sentencing Turner to six months in county jail. Turner, an ex-Stanford swimmer convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman last year, was also ordered to register as a sex offender.

Over 1 million people have signed a petition calling for the judge’s removal from the bench over the “lenient” sentence.

“Judge Persky failed to see that the fact that Brock Turner is a white male star athlete at a prestigious university does not entitle him to leniency,” the Change.org petition reads. “He also failed to send the message that sexual assault is against the law regardless of social class, race, gender or other factors.”

KPIX-TV’s legal analyst LaDoris Cordell said the jurors’ refusal to serve under Persky could spell trouble for the court system. 

“The significance is that if this were to continue, word gets out that, hey, if you don’t want to serve or don’t like a judge, just refuse to go in the courtroom, it could catch on and that would be bad,” said Cordell. “We rely on our jurors in order to make the system work.”
