Joe Biden Pens Powerful Open Letter To Stanford Rape Survivor As Students Petition The University!

See what Joe and the students are saying.

While Brock Turner's friends and family had penned letters vouching for his character, Vice President Joe Biden is now writing his own letter supporting the survivor the Stanford University swimmer sexually assaulted.

On Thursday, the politician shared a powerful open letter addressed to the anonymous victim with Buzzfeed News, commending the young woman's bravery.

The 73-year-old explained that her emotional statement about her assault is "forever seared" on his soul, writing:

"I am in awe of your courage for speaking out — for so clearly naming the wrongs that were done to you and so passionately asserting your equal claim to human dignity.

And I am filled with furious anger — both that this happened to you and that our culture is still so broken that you were ever put in the position of defending your own worth.

It must have been wrenching — to relive what he did to you all over again. But you did it anyway, in the hope that your strength might prevent this crime from happening to someone else. Your bravery is breathtaking.

You are a warrior — with a solid steel spine."

We completely agree. Speaking up and sharing her shocking story was incredibly inspiring and brave.

But President Barack Obama's second-in-command also explained that "a lot of people failed [her]" on the night she was attacked, adding:

Stanford Rapist Brock Turner Placed In Protective Custody At County Jail To Keep Him Safe From Other Inmates!

It's going to be a long six months for Brock Turner.

The former Stanford University student convicted of rape will serve his sentence at Santa Clara County jail in protective custody!

According to TMZ, the 20-year-old is being held in an area away from the general inmates and will have a deputy escort him around the grounds at all times.

Though Turner's protective custody isn't so much due to his high profile case, but rather the fact that he was convicted of sexual assault — and those inmates tend to be targeted.

Father Pens Powerful Open Letter To Stanford Rapist's Dad Explaining Why Brock Turner Is 'Not The Victim'!

no title

Earlier this week, the father of Brock Turner — the former Stanford University swimmer convicted of sexual assault — wrote a letter to the court in support of his son.

In the letter, Dan Turner asked for leniency in his son's rape conviction, saying Brock didn't deserve to be a registered sex offender and spend six months in jail for "20 minutes of action."

Needless to say, the plea has sparked even more outrage for downplaying the sexual assault of an unconscious woman behind a dumpster — especially after the embarrassingly light sentence Turner received.

One of the more vocal responses to Dan's letter comes from another father — pastor John Pavlovitz from Raleigh, North Carolina.

In a blog post titled To Brock Turner's Father, From Another Father, Pavlovitz explains to Dan Turner that Brock was "not the victim" in this scenario, but in fact the "damager."

The pastor noted that Brock's life has been "deeply altered" because he "made a reprehensible choice to take advantage of someone for his own pleasure," writing:

Judge Who Sparked Outrage For Stanford Rape Case Verdict Gets A New Judicial Term — But Will He Be Recalled Before He Can Finish It?

Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersSad SadViolence

no title

Judge Aaron Persky has gotten major heat since he sentenced former Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner to just six months in jail for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a dumpster back in January 2015.

The judge's ridiculously light prison sentence sparked outrage, with opposers launching a change.org petition to remove him from the bench — which now has over 500,000 signatures.

But despite those efforts, Persky still managed to quietly slither his way into a new judicial term on Tuesday!

California voters would have voted for the Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge's re-election on Tuesday, but he was running unopposed.

Even though Persky was able to sneak his way to a new term, experts say his controversial ruling will make it unlikely that he will complete his six-year term.
