Was Stanford rapist’s punishment lax or are standard sentences too punitive?

I'm not sure the length of prison sentences is a measure of society's repudiation of rape culture. If severity of punishment was a gage of our social objectives, property crimes would carry the greatest stigma. I have no sypathy, not even empathy, for rapists, nor frat boys, nor white macho crap. I think convicted rapist Brock Turner is a glaring example of white male privilege. He may also be the embodiment of its most casual excesses, and his six month sentence is an embarassment to a justice system that throws away the key for less white perpetrators. However I do loath how easily the public is made to cheer for greater punishment in lieu of a more humane perspective. Apprehending a live criminal, as opposed to killing him like so many others, should not prompt calls for equal mistreatment. Rapists should be chemically castrated, fine. There's no evidence that longer prison terms helps reduce sexual assaults, so why automatically call for more harsh punishment?

You want to protest a pro-rape rally? Try Veterans Day. Don’t feed the trolls.

DENVER, COLORADO- So-called men's rights advocates slash pick-up culture misogynists are making publicity for themseves by calling for rallies across the US to legalize rape. They suggest rape should be legal --in the home at least-- a sort of Stand Your Ground haven for wife-beaters. To indemnify domestic abuse. These liberated emasculates are nostalgic apparently for when most sexual assault stigmatized the victim and stayed in the closet unreported. These freaks are trolling, obviously, but prompting indignant cries to mobilize counterprotests. So much so that the reassert-your-male-privilege meet-ups have been cancelled. Reportedly. See that's the problem. It's Phelps Bundyism NAMBLAism enabling the corporate media to paint "activists" in sordid stripes. DO YOU WANT TO PROTEST AGAINST RAPE? Protest systemic rape by occupation forces, whoever's. Protest militarism. Protest American troops who try to rape 70% of their female soldiers and succeed with 40%, although who doubts that is underreported. Protest professional rapism to address the injustice of sexual violence. Let's be fair. Rapists are also victims of rape culture. Protest rape culture.

President Obama concedes there is no mechanism for punishing rich rapists.

In light of the unsealed deposition where Bill Cosby admitted to procuring Quaaludes to facilitate raping young women, a reporter asked President Obama if the celebrity's Freedom Medal could be revoked. There is no mechanism to do so, was Obama's reply. Not one pundit asked if there wasn't a precedent to seek a remedy within the justice system or law enforcement or department of corrections. Not all Bill Cosby's assaults fall beyond the statute of limitation, if even that should apply to rape.

Senate hopeful, Missouri fool Todd Akin takes wide stance on legitimate rape

Representative Todd Akin revealed his "legitimate rape" standard was no misunderstanding -- now he's courting America's vast army of Christian idiots who already share his belief in rape-modulated immaculate contraception, a convenient pretext for a complete abortion ban. Meanwhile his Larry Craig Wide Stance against abandoning his campaign bid in disgrace allows the GOP to earn points distancing themselves from Akin's crass misogyny, even though their party platform is steeped in it. When I hear American conservatives seem to compete with each other over who can bring the ugliest inanity to the party, I can't help be reminded of internet trolls --which constructive discourse requires we not feed. Except we are powerless to prevent the damn corporate media from feeding their GOP squeezebox monkey trolls and stoking the firestorm of ignorant, beyond the pale, political twists and u-turns. Now pundits are mouthing suggested mea culpa for the recalcitrant unpenitent: What Akin should have said. I'll have a go: I'm sorry, I'm a moron, a morally bankrupt, crap-regurgitating degenerate. Yes I'm a reflection of my constituents, but people, you can't give no-ideologues like me the responsibilities of government. I know that much.

Cain being charged on sex, but not the Murder and Robbery and Slavery

He's paid to support War, it's the base of Capital. Now they've got some sex accusations brought to bring him down. As heinous as rape is, or the statutory rape of an employee or job candidate as a condition of being hired... There's the literally countless murders of civilians including children done to support the lavish lifestyle of the Corporate Class. It would pale in comparison to even one such wanton murder. It's drinking from the same fount, though, War, Slavery, Prostitution, Rape... but so far there's a thunderous silence booming from the Right over any and all of those issues. To raise the issue that War is equivalent to any of the other crimes, or even a solid foundation to mask and enable them, has been political suicide since the time of the Athenians. The beating of War drums awakens and energizes people who only vote on emotion, and Capital is subsidized by War. It cannot survive without war, it's not a self-sustaining system as the "Invisible Hand Free Market" proponents claim. To take away another persons freedoms, rights or properties by force is called Robbery, yet that's what Capital does by renaming "robbery" as "regime change", declaring whole nations to be "outlaws" or "rogues" because they don't allow Corporate ownership of their national holdings. Just how DID "our" oil get under THEIR sand? Capitalists like Cain, and McCain, other persons who are paid to champion and advance the so-called self-supporting "free" market, are collecting welfare on a massive scale. They LIE by renaming conquest as liberation, Servile knee-jerk enforced "patriotism" as Freedom, using the word Nationalism to justify taking away the national sovereignty of everybody else. They embroil themselves in the Organized Crime that IS Corporate Rule. But to come out and SAY it, means you'll never be elected anywhere and you'll never get the privilege of being one of the Corporate Slaves. Not a bad trade off.

American tv viewers outraged at rape of white blond woman by dark horde

You'll think I'm minimizing the rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan by of a mob of Egyptian "celebrants" at the height of the Mubarak-departure delirium, as reported so far, but I want to point out that hers is not even representative of the rapes suffered by the victims of America's wars, crimes ongoing, tragedies unseen, unheralded and as a result -or not- eliciting scant sympathy from the American public. Yes it is embarrassing that white people care only about their own women, especially blonds. In fairness, the brown victims in other lands are kept from American view. Logan by the way is part of the apparatus which directs the media lens. Has Ms. Logan shown the humility to express concern for victims who cannot be airlifted to proper medical care, who may be victims of sex trafficking war zone gang rapes and have no rescuers? Perhaps as a media propagandist for US military enterprises, Ms Logan and her defense contractor husband will be opening their eyes to the millions of men, women and children whose lives are destroyed as a result of their livelihoods. The crime suffered by Lara Logan was as reprehensible as inexcusable, but it brings into sharp focus a dilemma I have: what fate worse than death do we wish on those who perpetuate America's wars?

Jeep declares war on intellect.

They're sponsoring Call of Duty:whateverthehellnumber : BlackOps. In the Jeep commercial they show screenshots of a Black Jeep SUV in some tropical location that exists only in the imaginations of the designers of the game, who never got closer to actual war than speeding up as they passed the Army Recruiter's office on their way to a College Republicans meeting. Call of "Duty"? BlackOps is not very discrete code for Murder, Kidnap and Torture, in other words, REAL terrorism funded and backed by a massive military industrial complex. Of which the manufacturers of Jeep are a proud member-group. BlackOps is not anybody's "Duty" it's a pleasure romp for people who enjoy killing and enjoy torture and enjoy the feeling of helpless victims fearing them. The sick bastards who play the game on their computers in their Moms' basements and fantasize killing are only slightly less sick than the ones who go out and commit the actual Murders, kidnaps and tortures. Or the political bastards who order the Terroristic BlackOps strikes. Games like that destroy your own capacity to think rationally, it's a downward spiral into being the formerly human equivalent of a mechanical drone. THEY push your launch buttons and aim you toward their target, as intelligent and free and human as a simple bullet.

Racist Arizona Law, the Mosque and the connection

The Arizona State police are running cover for the Murdering Scum Minutemen who killed among others Raul and Briseña Flores, father and 9 year old Daughter, both of them American. The PIGS are parroting the unproved Racist Minutemen accusation that Raul was a drug dealer. Easy to do when the accused is Dead. The Racists who did that, the Racists who cover for them, are the same Racist TeaBags who are leading the charge against freedom of Religion, having killed one person, at least, burned at least one Community Center in Murfreesboro Tennessee, an assault on a darker-skinned construction worker at the ground zero memorial, because he was wearing a Rastafarian tee-shirt. Rastafarian is a Christian sect., but they say he "looked" muslim so it's all right. And, it doesn't stop with simple assaults, arsons and murders. There's also the notion of giving the PIGS even MORE powers to arrest people simply for being "different". Which is a violent act. Arresting somebody means forcing him to obey you, to put chains on him and take everything from him, under threat of DEATH if he resists. The PIGS who commit that violence take the job because they get sexually aroused by such acts of violence. It's RAPE. And the TeaBag FREAKS want to give their PIG buddies ever increasing powers to Rape, Torture and Murder than they already have. There's an FBI PIG interrogator right now acting all proud that he "brcoke down Saddam Hussein" With of course his PIG buddies controlling the situation. Some "heroic" and "noble" act! They do the same thing in prisons around the world, using every technique possible, including and especially Torture. They do it in Iraq, in Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and in American jails against Americans. Once more, Anti-American Terrorism supported fully by the Tea Party so-called "Patriots".

Job Openings for Sadistic Perverts, in CIA Torture Chambers

The youngest prisoner at Guantanamo was arrested when he was 15, for defending his home. Remember that propaganda film "Red Dawn" where a heroic group of Boy Scouts form a resistance movement against the Communist Invaders? Yeah. Only the roles are reversed, the kids who were propagandized by that bloodthirsty movie in the 80s are now senior officers at the Pentagon, at Guantanamo, at Bagram, "advisors" at Abu Ghraib and other Torture Centers, teaching Other Perverted Sexual Predators how to do their Sadistic Rapes and get away with it. The kids fighting back against an invasion of THEIR homelands by Totalitarian Corporate Conquerors, are swarthy of skin, often (but not always) Muslim of faith and thus branded as Terrorists for not bowing to their "rightful masters". How about it, Pervs? Need a job which matches your hobby? Join the U.S. Military Police. I bet the Green Berets and Marines will do some fancy Custom Shopping for your victims, just give them the age and gender of your preference and they'll go out and snag you a 90 or 10 year old male "terrorist" or a 70 or 7 year old female "insurgent". Once you get past the notion that hurting people is FUN in the sickest kind of way, what difference would any of those petty details make, like the number of digits in their age? The military and their Iraqi and Afghan and other Puppet State "security forces" kill the kids even as young as newborns, daily. What can compare to the thrill of killing babies, shooting 92 year old grandfathers in their beds? Torture! Torture Kids, torture grown-ups, take videos of it and if you do a special good job of it Bush and Cheney will pay extra for the Torture Porn videos. Maybe give you a "special private audience" (sngt sngt sngt tee hee) The suspicion is that the current president gets off to it as well... He sure enough hasn't stopped it from happening.

Remember the Y2K plot?

The one that was supposedly broken by U.S. Customs on one side of the border and the RCMP on the others. That would be Customs before they became the Terrorist acronym "ICE", under the Liberal Bill Clinton, and the Canadian Cops, who, according to the Right Wing Screaming Club, are wimps whose idea of Torture is serving the tea with 2 sugars instead of3 a tad cooler than it's supposed to be served and forgetting to begin and end a sentence with the word "Sir". Seems the Rush Limbaugh "professional torturers" who know all there is to know about the Law, the Constitution that is the basis of that Law and how to interrogate people, wanted to have instead of a usual method of arresting, booking, and charging a Human Being with a felony, wanted to skip straight to the pulling out of fingernails, waterboarding and Crucifixion. Seriously, Right wing freaks, listen up... Torture is a sex crime, a violent rape. The persons who engage in torture are in fact Rapists. You would commit our national security into the hands of Perverted Assholes who get sexually aroused by human beings screaming in pain. They need a check-up from the neck-up, not a cushy government job, not guaranteed unlimited immunity from prosecution from their Violent Sexual Predator Rapes. And the MORONS who support these policies of allowing Torture Freak Sadist Rapists to hold the lives and deaths not only their bound and helpless victims but also the lives and deaths of Americans everywhere who are put at risk because they're wasting their time and our money Getting Their Pathetic Little Rocks Off. If you're Stupid enough or Insane Enough to trust YOUR safety, and of course mine, to people who are that Mentally Off-Balance that they enjoy, sexually, the pain of others then you also need a Check-up from the Neck-up.

In the good judgment of the cops

'Sign here on this ticket for speeding and failure to wear a seat belt (of course!). The bad news is that you have to go to court on this one.' Thus spoke the cop as the woman sped toward her escape from being raped! In the good judgment of the cops one cannot depend, this case in point. From our favorite paper, The Gagzette... Woman says traffic cop ignored her claim of rape This story has the ring of truth to it, as anybody stopped by the ticket-writing happy CS PD before surely can sense.
