Sickened and disgusted by comments I read by like-minded bloggers that believe that Tennessee’s punishment in the Vanderbilt rape trial was excessive. Or that it had anything to do with a Corey Batey’s race. As Brandon Vandenburg received more time in the initial trial.
Yes, wealthy white boy received more of a punishment than Batey before it was invalidated in the mistrial.
Here’s the way it works in Tennessee — we value women, or at least we should. If you come to Tennessee and you rape an unconscious woman, violate her repeatedly, videotape the assault, shove water bottles in her private parts, and urinate on her when you’re done — you get 15 years in prison with no parole. Maybe somebody should have told Cali boy that before he came here.
Or advised his co-conspirators of that before they went along. What happened in the Stanford rape case with the swimmer sickens me, but let’s not make Vanderbilt’s about something that it’s not.
