    Do you want to scrap the US legal system ? There will always be judgements you agree with and judgements you do not.

    fine, victim or family of victim should decide what the punishment is.

    how about actually following the law guides? all the judges seems to care about is the suffering of the convicted guy. the poor guy now can't be a doctor he will suffer all his life so lets not make life harder with jail.

    I wouldn't trust the legal system enough to get actual guilt correct.

    Why the outrage?

    If the defendant were Muslim, people would be asking, what rape?

    Especially if he were a migrant in Europe, he'd have the government covering it up on his behalf.

    But an educated white student? Hang the bastard.

    If more people did that, there'd be fewer rapes to begin with.

    Don't rape people.

    Shouldn't make a damn bit of difference. Rape is wrong. The only thing worse is framing someone, accusing them of rape they did not do.

    Just saying what it is. Most of the time it's right but sometimes it's wrong.

    Rapists should be executed.

    And this judge should be charged with aiding a known criminal and thrown in prison as well.

    Both of them are the lowest forms of humanity.

    Steve, it's the liberal system that I've been speaking about that is way way too soft on the bad guys. I'm actually surprised you aren't in favor of letting him go.

    IMO rapists, murderers and pedophiles are lifers and shouldn't see freedom ever again.
    --- Post Merged, Aug 11, 2016 ---
    agree. we spend way too much time worried about the bad guys trying to make a perfect system within an imperfect world. casualties will be had, but that's okay so long as they are minimal and the convicted are dealt with in such a way that they never pose a risk to the rest of society again.

    I think it's bad policy to legislate from the bench. Unfortunately, some judges do and it occurs all the way up to the supreme court. The rapist should have gotten some jail time.

    While some comments here, especially @FieldingMellish have been disgusting, I for one don't know enough about the case (nor have I had time to research it).

    But, the one good thing is his 20 years probation. I've never heard of a probation that long. So if he's convicted of any misdemeanours within the next 20 years then he'll be heading to prison for the rest of the 20 year stint plus whatever he did the next time.

    Not claiming its right, just interesting that there was 20 year probation. The judge must think he'll do something else and I can't nail him this time due to evidence.

    Some? He destroyed that poor girls life.

    These cases recently are a great argument for reforming our joke of a legal system.

    Let the jury vote on sentencing. Letting one person decide is a recipe for failure.

    It should result in a public hanging! We have too many people in the world, we don't need to rehabilitate criminals.

    You really want a jury to decide ? As it is, people with money can afford good lawyers and they would end up with lighter sentences.

    I think that the only changes that might work would be more mandatory sentencing.

    I agree but don't know if I'd describe it as legislating. Some judgement is involved, but seems to be poorly applied in this case. Just like having affluenza. :)

    Well, I mean, they aren't sending their best and brightest to us.

    As long as it was witnessed by multiple people/video recorded WITH sound, sure execute them. Of all the things we don't trust the government with, trusting them to decide the facts and the fate of an alledged criminal should be another one of them.

    Mob rule and lynchings were a bad thing I thought?

    Maybe legislating is the wrong term. I meant applying their own bias on how they think things should be judged rather then following the law.
