Brock Turner got off easy, but he’s now in textbooks next to the literal definition of rape
Girls everywhere will learn his face for decades
Brock Turner was released from Santa Clara County jail in September 2016 after serving just three months for raping an unconscious woman behind a dumpster at a fraternity party in January of 2015.
Despite the insultingly lax sentence, we can all take solace in the fact that Brock Turner will always be synonymous with the literal textbook definition of rape. Students enrolled in Washington State University's Criminal Justice 101 class will receive a second edition textbook by Professor Callie Marie Rennsion with a photo of Brock Turner plastered inside.
Turner's original, highly controversial sentence was only six months. Judge Aaron Persky defended it in a statement, saying, “It's my role to consider both sides. It’s not always popular, but it’s the law and I took an oath to follow it without regard to public opinion or my opinions as a former prosecutor.”
He also claimed he “fought vigorously for victims” as an attorney.
His opponent, Michele Dauber, released her own statement, requesting a judge who will protect and serve victims, not rapists, while attacking his “lenient sentences to athletes and upper-class defendants.”
Despite Persky's call, thousands of girls for years to come will learn to equate Turner's face with his crime.
In the text next to his photo, Rennsion doesn't hold back in shaming how colleges — like Turner's school, Stanford — across the country are handling similar assault cases.
Rennsion is a Professor in the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado, Denver, and babe has reached out to her for comment.
