Brock Turner, typical rapist as displayed in this article. He blames peer pressure to drink and party culture for making a “bad decision “.
Brock Turner the rapist – “My poor decision-making and excessive drinking hurt someone that night, and I wish I could just take it all back”
Rapists never admit blame, it is always something or someone else.
It makes me laugh but also furious how he says that he made a “bad decision ” due to drinking. No…no,no,no!!!! A bad decision would be drinking too much and puking all over your friends apartment, or getting into a ridiculous argument with a good friend where you said some awful things that you didn’t mean, or partying so hard that you miss a midterm /final. Those are bad decisions. Raping an unconscious person behind a dumpster (mind you, there were two actual physical eyewitnesses who caught this creep in the act) does not qualify as a “bad decision “.
Here is where we see Brock Turner the rapist trying to plea with anyone who will listen that he is the victim here. That is the bottom line.
Brock Turner the rapist – “I want to take what I can from who I was before this situation happened and use it to the best of my abilities moving forward. I know I can show people who were like me the dangers of assuming what college life can be like without thinking about the consequences one would potentially have to make if one were to make the same decisions that I made”
Oh, and check out this gem that I found posted by Brock the rapist himself….
I encourage you to read the full article, it is just. …I don’t even have words!
Brock Turner the rapist – “There isn’t a second that has gone by where I haven’t regretted the course of events I took on January 17th/18th. My shell and core of who I am as a person is forever broken from this. I am a changed person. At this point in my life, I never want to have a drop of alcohol again. I never want to attend a social gathering that involves alcohol or any situation where people make decisions based on the substances they have consumed. I never want to experience being in a position where it will have a negative impact on my life or someone else’s ever again”
And the young woman addressed this in her letter to him;
Victim – “If you are hoping that one of my organs will implode from anger and I will die, I’m almost there. You are very close,” her letter reads in part. “This is not a story of another drunk college hook-up with poor decision-making. Assault is not an accident. Somehow, you still don’t get it. Somehow, you still sound confused”
Changes need to be made, Brock Turner is not a “nice guy” he is a rapist…period, the reinforcement of rape culture needs to end!
