The controversy over Brock Turner‘s lenient rape sentence keeps rolling as new revelations continue to go viral. The latest developments include Turner’s letter to the court, which absolved himself of responsibility while pointing the finger at alcohol and Stanford’s party culture. He received a paltry six-month sentence in a case where eyewitnesses pinned him down until police arrived. This, of course, stands in sad contrast to those who do serious hard time for crimes they didn’t even commit.
Turner is already in jail, although he’s been placed in protective custody to keep him away from fellow inmates. He’ll probably actually be released in four months, as “good behavior” credits have already been applied. Of course, there’s little chance of him acting up in jail while he’s under protective custody, right? Meanwhile, folks want justice, starting with the ridiculous and ending with the serious. First up, a coven of purported witches gathered (in a now-deleted Facebook posting) to cast an impotency spell on Turner:
Brock Allen Turner we hex you.
You will be impotent
You will know constant pain of pine needles in your guts
Food will bring you no sustenance
In water, your lungs will fail you
Sleep will only bring nightmares
Shame will be your mantle.
You will meet justice.
My witchcraft is strong. Our witchcraft is powerful. The spell will work. So Mote it be.
