Verbal, physical, sexual abuse is in the news on a nightly basis, and the latest is showcased in high definition for all to see: Stanford Rapist Brock Turner. The judge let him off with a VERY lenient sentence. Brock's father wrote a disgusting letter in a feeble attempt to make excuses for his son despicable, deplorable behavior—showcasing how rape culture in the U.S. is completely enmeshed in college athletics. And social media is up-in-arms at the injustice.
It's been well-publicized by the media: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight—kidnapped 10 years ago—are free. Amanda and Gina are home today (with Michelle expected to be released from the hospital tomorrow after recovering from back surgery)... today also being the day that one of their alleged kidnappers—Ariel Castro, one of three brothers accused—is being charged with four counts of a kidnapping and three counts of rape.
