Empathizing with Rapists Instead of Victims

June 10, 2016

This behavior is way too common and beyond inexcusable. Blaming the victim is so easy for many these days. It must be called out for what it is and stopped in its tracks.

Why do we so often empathize with the privileged even when they commit brutal crimes?

Rape is just “20 minutes of action.” And it’s non-violent.

That’s how the father of convicted rapist, Brock Turner, saw it.

Judge Persky was also blinded to the victim’s pain by the predator’s distress.

  3. Rape is defined by FEDERAL law and state statute as Assault with Intent to Kill. Women have died from rape, by being beaten, torn, and diseased by their attacker. I should buy a minimum sentence of 40 to life. Call me when you are raped, (not you, Rick) and we’ll see what kind of a lump of raw meat you are left as. I favor the death penalty for all confirmed rapes proven by DNA. I never say this.

      Where? Not in California, where this Mr. Turner was sentenced.

        She stated Federal law. We all know state and federal laws can conflict.
