You know, I am sick of this. I am sick of there being a problem and then swept under the rug. Case #1 , another alleged sexual assault at a North Carolina University. That place of higher education, has recorded yet another case of REPORTED sexual assault AND it was at a school atop of reported events!
The ‘body of work’, both rhetorical and actual, perpetuate misogyny. And then the sentences are a joke. The latest perp, is an athlete. I know, I know, who’d have expected that, right?
And this, coming upon the heals of two major stories at Vanderbilt and Stanford respectively.. The Vanderbilt case, is especially heinous, as it IS a hate crime. And after the raping, he asserted to the victim, that slavery is an alibi, 400 years of slavery that is.
It gets worse. He then urinated upon the co-ed. With these extenuating circumstances, he gets 15 years! It seemed as this judge was more concerned, with the rapist’s prospects after release than the horror and degradation of the poor victim. And you know that he will get leeway and an early termination of incarceration!
His name, by the way. Cory Baty. The Judge: Monte Watkins.. Be sure to comment or send an email to that Judge. (POS).
Case Two: A miserable POS (http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/06/us/sexual-assault-brock-turner-stanford/)
Listen to the account of the Victim! This is heart-breaking!
(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.
I will let you listen to her story. I am shaking mad, even still. Sad to be male and that I might make her fearful of me. Even so, it is important to internalize this! six months to 90 days?! Brock, screw your dad and yourself! And then ‘daddy pooh’ is all supportive! Screw him as well. He stated that his son will be hurt for 20 minutes of bad behavior. Look at what your’ son did. He can never repay that debt. Ever!!
But in a statement on Monday, Rosen stopped short of calling for Persky’s ouster.“While I strongly disagree with the sentence that Judge Persky issued in the Brock Turner case, I do not believe he should be removed from his judgeship,” Rosen said. “I am so pleased that the victim’s powerful and true statements about the devastation of campus sexual assault are being heard across our nation. She has given voice to thousands of sexual assault survivors.”CNN calls to Turner’s defense attorney, Mike Armstrong, were not returned Monday.
In another semi-related event. This happened back a few years ago. But injustice, misogyny and ambivalence coalesce into a dirge of acrimony. A woman who faced a trial, re-raped in court, and with a long comment by her, that went unheeded.
As to the case, of a truant girl, I sit here in apoplexy. Make an example of an innocent girl. But I will let you take this in.
So, let me think, Diane was being a good girl and yet had to face this, as a responsible young adult and under stress. Ok, she got a respite with all those donations.
