Brock Turner’s 6-Month Sentence is a Joke

When I read this story, I am disgusted. A six-month sentence for raping an unconscious victim. I am thinking a 10-20-year sentence would be more appropriate. We're sending out son's and daughters to school to get an education, not to become a  victim of a sexual assault. Please don't be that person to defend this P.O.S., he's not a victim.
Sam Levin, the Guardian -- A former Stanford University athlete convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman was sentenced to six months in county jail and probation in a case that has shed light on what advocates say is an epidemic of violence on college campuses.

Brock Allen Turner, a 20-year-old swimmer who dropped out of the elite California university last year, appeared stoic in court in Palo Alto on Thursday, two months after a jury convicted him of multiple felonies, including assault with intent to rape an intoxicated woman.

The 23-year-old victim delivered an emotional speech at the hearing, decrying rape culture and asking that the judge send a strong message about the severity of Brock’s attack on her.
What's even more disgusting is the comments by Dan Turner, Brock's dad. I took a screen shot so you can read his moronic, buffoonish, crass, indefensible comments. This guy must have an IQ of about 50. So, we're to believe that his poor son is a victim, right? If you think I am being too harsh on this piece of excrement, imagine if you sent your daughter to Standford or any other college and she was sexually assaulted. Imagine that the subject only received a six-month sentence. 

The judge in the case is also getting a lot of heat for his pathetic sentence. The man should be disbarred from the bench.

 Finally, this is the face of the sexual predator. Rapist Turner, should be in jail for a very long time. He's not a victim, he's a piece a garbage. Here's my question, do we live in a culture where rape and sexual assault has been decriminalized or do athletes sometimes just get off because of their status? This guy should be in a jail cell for a very long time.
