    Brock Turner, college swimmer, CONVICTED of rape - sentenced to only 6 months in jail

    So glad this is spreading like wildfire on the internet, and on cable news. This guy got 6 months for a witnessed rape, for which there was a ton of evidence, because as the judge stated " a long sentence would have a severe impact on him". After all, he was a competitive swimmer, formerly for Stanford, and a possible Olympic contender. This is the letter she read at her victim impact statement. It was also read in it's entirety on CNN today:

    The father of a former Stanford University athlete convicted on multiple charges of sexual assault has said his son should not have to go to prison for “20 minutes of action”.

    Father AND son are despicable. I hope the rapist is unemployable when he gets out. I won't shed a tear if Daddy faces some social/employment related consequences for his egregious statement as well,

    This poor woman.....I hurt so badly for her. I just read the complete letter and it is extremely powerful and well written. She has been totally wronged in every freakin way. I wish her peace but I'm afraid it will be a long time to come.

    Can we get his name in the title and original post? The whole world needs to see rapist next to his name.

    I find it very odd that his booking photo is nowhere to be found. He is still being labeled "Swimmer" instead of "rapist" in headlines, and most news outlets show his smiling yearbook photo.

    I bet he would feel differently if it was his daughter that was assaulted. His apple didn't fall too far. I do have to wonder how many other things his dad allowed him to skate by on if he didn't think a 20 minute sexual assault warranted jail time. I have two sons, and I cannot imagine ever making such a statement.

    For anyone interested.....168,567 people have signed the petition to remove the judge from the bench....the goal was 150,000.

    (I apologize to the mods for posting the link to the petition earlier today....I wasn't aware that it isn't allowed.)

    Please, everyone, I beg you to read both the victim's statement and the CONVICTED felon's father's letter. Please sign the petition to remove the judge. I know the link isn't allowed but can easily be found. This is an absolute injustice that will make you physically ill.

    I have some choice words for Leslie Rasmussen.

    Even more for Brock, his father, and the judge.

    But I don't want to get banned.
    Jill can't find last year's taxes either.
