There is an ongoing trend in many courts in America to find some excuse why a college student who rapes just should not be severely punished. Brock Allen Turner is a college swimmer who raped a women and when he was convicted the court of Judge Aaron Persky i Santa Clara County in California the crime wound up imposing a severe SIX MONTH SENTENCE on the rapist! There is now a movement to have a recall referendum that would send the Judge back home and stay out of any court.
The real issue is why have so many college rapists not been sentenced to long sentences? The answers are apparent:
1. There still persists the theme of ‘college boys just have to get their excess energy out and sex is one good way.
2. The defendants usually are from the middle or upper classes and who wants nice white boys in jails with bad black or Hispanic rapists?
