Outrage over Stanford Rape Case- 6 months in Jail- Brock Turner- Judge Aaron Persky, Palo Alto AA Meetings

There has been alot of coverage of this convicted rapist, Brock Turner. I was very sorry to hear the Judge only gave him 6 months. As we have heard many times, young black men have been sentenced to 10 years and have served that time for possession of a small amount of drugs. SO how does this happen? What kind of world are we living in?

I am so sorry for this young victim. She had alot of courage. I think that AA and its ideology have played a part in this. DID he use the I’m have a drinking card as part of his testimony or excuse. EVEN if he didn’t, AA has gotten into TV, FILM our Courts for the past 40 years in such a way that people think that just by standing up and confessing their sins they are forgiven. Many are using Drug court and ” oh I am an alcoholic” to get out of jail and go to rehab or AA meetings. 40 years ago this would not happen.

There was an episode on THE NICK ( takes place 1903 in the KNICKERBOCKER HOSPITAL in NYC) Where one of the characters DAD was an evangelical minister. They did that back them. Get up and confessed. The Oxford groups did this. AA was stolen from this cult and Bill got sober through those groups. I will do some digging to see what was said and if they are using the “drug Court Card to get him off. ”

(CNN)Widespread outrage has erupted over a California judge’s decision to give a former Stanford University swimmer a six-month jail sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. Critics are blasting the decision as far too lenient.

Prosecutors had asked that Brock Turner be sentenced to six years in prison for the January 2015 assault.
The controversial sentence was followed by the release of two dueling letters to the judge about the case that have been widely shared and sparked further outcry: one from the victim, who described her ordeal in 12 searing pages; and another from Turner’s father, who dismissed his son’s crime as “20 minutes of action.”
Turner, 20, was convicted in March of the intent to commit rape of an intoxicated/unconscious person, penetration of an intoxicated person and penetration of an unconscious person.
Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky said on Thursday that Turner’s age and lack of criminal history made him feel that imposing a six-month jail sentence with probation was appropriate. Turner also has to register as a sex offender.
“A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” Persky said. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”

  1. The young woman had been drinking, how many times are women told in AA meetings that getting raped was their fault if they were drunk? The judge cited the impact on his life if he served the time he deserved, but didn’t seem to give a damn about what the young woman has to live with for the rest of HER life.

    And he is a white, privileged, Stanford boy; a minority guy would serve God knows how long! And white does NOT equal “not a danger to others”, what about that rich white Dupont heir who was a serial rapist that was finally caught in Mexico, still raping women just as he had in the US? This guy is a major danger to women, rape isn’t just a “boys will be boys” situation.

  2. It’s a shame but fortunately in this case there were witnesses that saw him committing the atrocious act. It would of been an extremely weak case if it was a he said she said type of thing because when you have no memory of what happened a defense attorney would eat you alive. This judge makes me sick because you have people in jail for petty bullshit and here is a seriously sick young man who will only serve a few months for the 2nd worst crime you can commit.

    • hi marc- I know- but I think this story is not over. This new trend towards White Privilege is taking a tole on our Society.

      On one hand people get locked up for a small handful of drugs for 25 years, or like a Black man who was wrongly convicted of a rape he DID NOT DO , who I saw on CNN the other day while at the Gym riding the bike, its just so wrong on so many levels.

      Between the war on drugs, so many have spent decades in prison for hurting no one.

      I remember a story on The Fix- a pro AA blog, a while back , about a young man who, while he was in college just sold some LSD to some kids who wanted it. He did 25 years. He got out and wrote this piece about being sober, in Prison. The poor guy was so brainwashed and still so traumatized. I really felt bad for him.
