Stanford students raped a woman,  The judge rapes the law

名叫Brock Allen Turner的斯坦福学生强奸了一个女性。名叫 Aaron Perksy的法官判他入狱6个月且缓期执行。我感觉AaronPerksy不但强奸了法律,而且意念上强奸了世界上所有女性,同时强奸了世界上所有人心中的公平和正义。

Brock Allen Turner当时在开放场所强奸当时无意识的女性,很可能这位女性当时服用了迷奸药物,比如ketamine,这种药物会使当时发生的记忆完全抹除。如果不是有目击者,受到伤害的女性很难自己指正罪犯。这是情节严重的违反他人意愿和自由的强奸!不是诱奸或者暧昧不清的性关系。

出于对自己儿子的爱,Brock Allen Turner的父亲尝试去减轻罪行,当时我很想提醒这位父亲,他儿子心中的规则和正义也被他父亲自己毁灭了。他儿子一辈子都在期待一个公平的惩罚来获得救赎,可是这位父亲剥夺了这个,只给了自己儿子伴随一生的强奸犯的标签。

Ex-Stanford swimmer gets six months in jail and probation for sexual assault

in Palo Alto, California

A former Stanford University athlete convictedof sexually assaulting an unconscious woman was sentenced to six months incounty jail and probation in a case that has shed light on what advocates sayis an epidemic of violence on college campuses.

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

The 23-year-old victim delivered an emotionalspeech at the hearing, decrying rape culture and asking that the judge send astrong message about the severity of Brock’s attack on her.

“We cannot forgive everyone’s first sexualassault … The seriousness of rape has to be communicated clearly. We should notcreate a culture that suggests we learn that rape is wrong through trial anderror.”

Turner, who is from Dayton, Ohio, was arrestedon the Palo Alto campus on 18 January 2015 after two Stanford graduate studentsspotted him lying on top of the victim outside of a Kappa Alpha party behind adumpster. When officers arrived, the woman, who is not a Stanford student, was“completely unresponsive” and partially clothed, with a blood-alcohol levelthree times the legal limit, according to police.

The two witnesses who were biking past thatevening said they saw Turner “thrusting” on topof the motionless woman and that they intervened and held him until policeshowed up.

Turner, who had a blood-alcohol level that wastwice the legal limit, testified in court that he could walk andtalk at the time and acknowledged that the victim was “very drunk”. He claimedthat he did not intend to rape the woman and that the encounter was consensual.

The victim, who gave emotional testimony during the trial,regained consciousness at a hospital more than three hours after the assaultand told police she had no memory of the attack.

After a jury convicted Turner of sexuallypenetrating an intoxicated and unconscious person with a foreign object,prosecutors asked a judge to sentence him to six years in California prison. Probationofficials had recommended the significantly lighter penalty of six months incounty jail, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The judge, Aaron Perksy, cited Turner’s ageand lack of criminal history as factors in his decision, saying, “A prisonsentence would have a severe impact on him … I think he will not be a danger toothers.”

After the hearing, Santa Clara County districtattorney Jeff Rosen slammed the sentencing, which will likely result in Turnerspending three months behind bars – a fraction of the maximum 14 years he waspotentially facing.

“The punishment does not fit the crime.”

The high-profile case intensified scrutiny of rapes at UScolleges and comes at a time when national leaders and activists across thecountry have increasingly raised alarms about the culture of sexual violence onuniversity campuses.

A recent White House survey found that 10%of female college students experience some form of sexual assault and that only12.5% of rapes are reported.

Turner’s case attracted significant attentionin part because criminal prosecutions of campus rape cases are rare. Inrecent years, there have also been growing concerns about the ways in whichuniversities protect athletes accused of sexual assault.

Stanford has also faced criticisms for the wayit handles sexual assault cases and punishes offenders,with students demanding reforms after a senior went publicwith her story of trying tohold her alleged rapist accountable through the university’s disciplinarysystem.

In her testimony on Thursday, the victimaddressed Turner directly, outlining the many ways the assault and ensuingtrial traumatized her and her family.

“You took away my worth, my privacy, myenergy, my time, my safety, my intimacy, my confidence, my own voice, untiltoday.”

She added, “I am a human being who has beenirreversibly hurt.”

The woman also criticized media coverage thathighlighted Turner’s swimming abilities and athletic ambitions. “The fact thatBrock was an athlete at a private university should not be seen as anentitlement to leniency.”

Alaleh Kianerci, the prosecutor, criticizedTurner for failing to admit that he sexually assaulted the woman that night.

“Has he acknowledged that he actually sexuallyviolated her? I think the answer to that is no.”

In his short statement, Turner did not speakabout sexual assault and offered a short apology.

“Nobody deserves a single second of what Ihave caused them to go through … I want to express that I’m sorry foreverything.”
