The Stanford Rapist

This will probably be short and caustic, because Brock and Dan Turner have made such a ridiculous mess of this that the presiding judge almost looks sane. Between Brock’s blaming of a party culture and his father’s claim of 20 minutes of action, we have apologists galore for a senseless act of violence and power by an 18 year old athlete who should have had “Privilege” tattooed on his dong.

This young man, had he been taught properly the respect for women that most civilized men know instinctively, would never have felt it was okay to have intercourse with an unconscious woman. On what world do men think that it’s okay? Other, that is, than on Turner World, where “action” doesn’t equal “rape.” American men could learn something from the two Swedish students who came to the victim’s aid and tackled the rapist. They were the only real men on site that night.

The crazy judge worried that the poor boy’s life would be damaged by conviction for three felonies. I would love to hear him say the same if Turner had been black. For a good white boy of privilege, it is unfortunate but not fatal to be convicted of three felonies, but the crusher was having to register as a sex offender. Poor baby! And not a word of remorse or regret for the harm caused an innocent woman. I can hear the cries of outrage. She was drunk!  She asked for it! Bull. She asked for a hangover; what she got was one of the most painful and denigrating experiences a woman could go through at the hands of a supposedly civilized man. She could have had something much worse, had it not been for two men who reacted well and spontaneously to do the right thing.

The heroes of this action are appalled by what they witnessed. The poor victim only knows her story through their eyes. These were the only real men on that scene that night. Brock Turner was a vile little boy, the son of a vile man, who both have no idea how to behave decently in polite society. One’s a criminal, a felon, the other an apologist. Anyone who pays into poor Papa Turner’s legal fund is an immoral enabler of privilege and a denigrater of a woman’s right to safety in a social setting. I hope you’re all proud of yourselves for the disgusting picture you present to people in this country.

Do I Really Need to Worry About Hillary’s Emails? Yes. She Will Be Indicted. (Full Form)

This is a very long post, but it was created by a 22 year old student who has done his research. He comes from an interesting perspective, that of one who worked at Sandia Labs where he had to click an extra button for every email he sent, insuring that it did not contain classified information, which is what Hillary would have had to do if she had used the State Department email address she was supposed to use. This isn’t rocket science.

Informed Vote

A shorter version of this work has been published by the Georgia Political Review here. It directly responds to the arguments made by ABC legal analyst Dan Abrams, Emeritus Professor of Law Richard Lempert and Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus.

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is one of the most important, yet undiscussed issues of the 2016 election. Despite how long the media has been covering it, I don’t think most people really understand what’s going on. Almost everyone I know is genuinely unsure of what exactly she did wrong and as a result are more willing to accept the scandal as nothing more than a partisanor sexist, effort to bring her down (me 3 days ago). The disinterest in the scandal seems to be cemented on the left as a result of Bernie Sanders refusing to attack her on the issue thus far in the campaign; something the Republican nominee will certainly do. So why are so…
