Stanford U. swimmer Brock Turner sexually assaulted a woman who was lying on the ground, unconscious, in Jan 2015. He tried to run away after being seen by two witnesses, but they tackled him and held him down until the police came. On Thursday, the 20-year-old, who was facing up to 14 years in state prison, was sentenced to a pitiful six months in jail. In a statement to the court before the sentencing, Brock’s father, Dan Turner, said his son’s life had been “deeply altered forever” and that the sentence was “a steep price to pay for 20 minutes of action.” This is "Rape Culture": painting the perpetrator as the poor victim with this kind of complete disregard for the woman who was raped.
