The judges hands are tied because of mandatory sentencing laws! It's not the judges fault! It's the American people's fault! We are the ones that elected politicians that enacted those laws! Don't blame the judge for following the law because it's actually the AMERICAN PEOPLES' FAULT! It's idiotic to allow the laws to be passed and then blame the judges when they follow them - which they are paid to do and they will be FIRED OR REMOVED FROM THE BENCH if they don't! Instead of blaming the judges for doing the job the AMERICAN PEOPLE designed, try VOTING!!!!
Shame man how can a man or a judge live their life after ruining another man’s life seriously man ....... I want to come America it’s my dream but when we see these kind of injustice No man I love to be stay in India.....The WORST INJUSTICE CONTRY IN THE WORLD AMERICA and I hate when I saw this
Unlike most of the world. The American culture and law system is all about vengeance and punishment. It is a reason why America is one of the few countries that refer to it as “justice system” any country that has a law system based of companies and religious fundamentalism will always be corrupt to the core,
OK this is the most pathetic thing I have heard in my life. The man did what most in prison would not do, Turned his life around got out and did right. Now they are sending him back for something from decades ago, Sounds like someone did not like the fact that Obama tried to help this man. As the students of Majorie Stoneman Douglas high school said I call BS on this crap.
The prison complex in america is disgusting, and the people like the judge enforcing it are agents of the devil. I wish they did this same type of sentencing for people like Brock Turner needing "5 seconds of action".
Why isn't there a judicial rubric that says, for crime x, the sentence is y? That would stop a lot of this over and under-criminalization. The only power judges should have is to, based on evidence, decide guilty or not.
Megalus Doomslayer I don't presume to know anything about you. That's the difference between us. I only speak of potential and possibility. In your own words " try coming up with a solution" since you have all this self proclaimed "logic and reasoning" capacity.
That style of sentencing is the "overcriminalization/undercriminalization" that can occur in a judicial system. Judges shouldn't have the only say in who's guilty. You're stuck in a medieval mindset. The issue is with the lack of a reliable means of ensuring fair treatment. This problem exists because of humans. Therefore, it can't be fixed by having humans run the system. Since there's no way around humans running the system, we're doomed to eternal conflict. The system can't be perfect. In order for a rubric to work, you would need to write down a sentence for each exact hypothetical scenario anyone could find themselves in at any time. You would also need to find a way of determining the appropriate sentence for each of those situations. That's why judges exist. They're there to judge each situation that someone gets convicted over. Try coming up with a solution, rather than a reversion.
The American justice system is about hatred and viciousness and about making Fascists feels superior about themselves. The American legal system needs to be burned down to its foundations and rebuilt from the ground up.
Trump will pardon himself but not Mathew Charles. Fellow Americans if you have not figured it out we are living in a fascists country, only the worst places on this planet would send a man back to Jail for a technicality after releasing him. In addition only the worst places on earth show lenience to a man who rapes a child. So I guess America is the shithole country now.

Voluntary intoxication may negate consent
If you have sex with an individual who voluntarily consumes enough alcohol and/or drugs to the point where he/she is unable to resist the sexual encounter, prosecutors could charge you with Penal Code 261 PC date rape.
Well shit if that is not vague. If you drink yourself into a coma it may or may not be rape. If you get drugged it is rape. I don't know the details of the Brock turner case well. Did he roofie her?
Thee Adjudicator Firstly, you call me a troll but I'm not conservative. I dislike tyt for their race baiting and hypocrisy. Case in point the guy who was shot through his garage door. They chose to omit half the story given by the police to fit their narrative of police roaming the streets, bloodthirsty for killing black people. So, no it doesn't bring me joy seeing them invite further racial tension, it's the opposite along with fellow regressives like yourself.
Ok troll. All those mental gymnastics must be exhausting. Here's a conspiracy for you: Why are most trolls conservative? Why dedicate so much of your life to hate and misery? and why does it bring you joy?
Just shows you the justice system was an will always be set up to keep black men incarcerated an others are given a pass but our President will not touch it due to his stand on people of color . When an where will it end I say NEVER
As a panda bear.. I don't get why color… is Such a thing for u humans..im black and white… and u guys lock up this black but allow a white to rape a child…. Wouldn't go down in the panda world.. All I learned from this is selling drugs is worst to u humans than child rape.. Even thou cvs sells drugs all the time.. Bad job
GeuwgleSuxBallz I feel you I to grew up that way for the most part and I know for me looking at this video although it sucks it is nothing new. I also know that your RIGHT somehow we went from 8 years of Obama to now everyone is swimming in HATE of the OTHER. Keep up the fight we need to hear the true voices from the so called others when talking about this kind of stuff.
Thanks, man. It is a subject that I have always been passionate about. I think I am older than most people commenting here. When I was four years old, a black electrician came to my house, and although I had listened to my heroes, Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Stevie Wonder discuss race in a way that seemed sensible to me, I had never seen them up close. I was curious about the electrician's hair. As I recall, he had a tight fro, with a little bit of activator. My mom was horrified as I asked questions that would be really awkward from an adult, but he recognized the innocence of a curious four year old, and even told me to touch his hair. My mom was really grateful for his patience, and looking back, he seems like just a nice guy who saw it as his civic duty to teach the children well. I immersed myself in history, and especially was interested in peoples' struggles against oppression, tyranny, or just any thing that seemed unfair to me. This all seemed to jive with all of the black friends, authority figures, opponents, that I interacted with growing up. It seemed like we were all on the same team. I remember that there was one black kid that always seemed to have a chip on his shoulder, and he would get in lots of fights for various reasons, but sometimes he was just angry at a white kid for being white. Nobody ever attributed this to his blackness, because the other black kids did not approve of this behavior and would fight him too. We figured maybe he had some bad interactions with racism, but he failed to realize that we were not those people. I finished high school and college, in the 90's which seemed like a golden age for race relations. We were brothers and sisters academically, in sports, and other extracurriculars, including partying. When race would come up, if we were serious, we were all on the same page, just agreeing that it's not a reason to treat anyone any different, except for really minor things like what kind of toiletries one would be more likely to use. Ptherwise we could be joking, and people could use some very harsh language, but there was never any doubt that we were making fun of silly stereotypes, like noting how much our buddy liked watermelon, when we all loved watermelon, or we were just flat making fun of racists, because they were living jokes to us. When I first became a homeowner, my black neighbors outnumbered the neighbors of all other races combined. The whole neighborhood seemed to be on the same page. In recent years, I have seen a change. It seems race is something I am supposed to treat as paramount upon meeting a person. When getting to know younger black people, I have been getting this weird response that I am pretty cool for a white guy. I think maybe they are watching too much MTV, TYT, or Buzzfeed. I don't think I made any argument about race, but like I said, it is a subject that I am passionate about, so I would gladly argue on a particular subject that grabs my attention.
As a man, who is identified as white, it is what I expect from the law too. I just don't expect anyone to pretend it is my problem because of skin color, and write an article drawing attention to my plight.
I dont think they see paedophilia as 'that bad a crime' in America!! In most states you can marry minors with a parents permission!!
I think America is definitely more racist than it is angry at perverts!!
Matt H voting for the different side of the same coin never changed anything! Until the progressives stop voting with democrats, you will never see a change! Because most of your progressive candidates now will become career democrats after they get your vote!
Matt H well in 2020.... you will come to realize that your vote doesn't matter!😂 especially since your "progressives" will run as democrats and Democrat have super delegates in their primaries! They have already demonstrated they have no problem rigging primaries! What makes you think 2020 will be any different?
Hey pal, that’s my country you’re talking about! ...
... and you’re completely right. We’re an embarrassment that makes pre-revolution France in “A Tale of Two Cities” look like goddamned Norway. Compared to our justice system the one that put Jean Valjean away for over a decade is downright modern — at least *he* did something to harm someone other than himself.
“Then why don’t you LEAVE!” Partly because it isn’t practical and partly — and more importantly — because I don’t have to. I reject this jingoistic idea that I have to love Trumpist America or leave it: I have many more options, among which are VOTING in the midterms and 2020 for progressive candidates with the interests of the people — not the aristocracy — at heart.
The system sucks, but people pretending that it is racist don't help. People blaming conservatives don't help. If you really cared about it, you would attempt to reform it, instead of using it to fuel your tribalistic hatred.
I'll break it down for you. "It's already Been reformed GeuwgleSuxBallz..They changed it back.." We think we know the subject you are addressing, but it is so vague as to be worthless. "GeuwgleSuxBallz..😄😄😄😄😂😂😂..That's funny..when I can run a campaign like Donald Trump? I'll pay your college tuition.." Something is funny, followed by an incomplete thought about running a campaign like Donald Trump, and an offer to pay my college tuition. What college do you expect me to attend, and for what subject? Will you compensate me for the lost wages as well? "GeuwgleSuxBallz..😂..That's funny" Something is funny. We may never know what though. "GeuwgleSuxBallz..sound's like you..nvm" Yet another incomplete thought. "GeuwgleSuxBallz..you won't..it requires reflection & lookin' outside your OWN shoes.." I won't do something. This thing requires doing two other really simple things, and it is implied that this is why the other thing will not be done. Sorry, folks if you are confused as hell reading this. He thinks in tiny little bursts. That is why it is unintelligible.
Rafael, I won't something, because it requires doing two things that I do exceptionally well and often, including a random capitalization of a word. Are you going to explain anything? Do you have any desire to be understood?
rasheedqe seriously? The same comment.... again! Just because you say it, doesn't make it true! But your response or lack their of, is that of a typical leftist teenager who knows nothing of the real world and is still living off mommy and daddys dime!
This is exactly what promotes Bad Behavior and shows that Rehabilitation is not the goal of our prison system. Its Disgusting and hell it just shows we should get badges as cops, Pretend to be Right-wingers, and get some judicial/political position in order to rape kids, Murder unarmed innocent civilians, Still thousands of dollars, and various other illegal practices and get away with it only to receive paid vacation time as a punishment.
"... is what makes this country great". Please get rid of the propaganda slogan. Stop believing it. And change the country until it deserves to be called great. As it stands, the country is just... big.
What are you talking about? AMERICA IS THE BEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. I AM SAYING IT IN ALL CAPS SO IT MUST BE TRUE, and if you disagree you hate the military and should be deported to a war-torn country where the word “freedom” doesn’t exist!
How about the guy in "Making a Murderer"? That guy is getting screwed big time. Of course TYT makes it a race thing. Doesn't matter the race, people are getting their lives ruined by lazy/bad cops and corrupt judges.
Jk F1 is grasping for anything, ANYTHING to say right now cos the ignorant idiot and his ignorant idiotic statement were destroyed immediately hahahahaha just look at the lame ass floundering hahahahaha
my white people this whole thing is about to back fire on us. if we dont Change our hearts and bring down this machine we created. thats now processing us in ways we never thought it would. everything your seeing us do will happen to us. we dont want that to happen. Do on to others as you want to be done unto you. karma is in the air now, we've been warned. Change our hearts, we change the world ❤= 🌎 give the resources back to the people cost free. Their only job will be to harvest crops and watch the heavens(sky).
It’s wrong & we know it but yet ignore it! Sad to say but the prison system was & is made for minorities. Our minority leaders are cowards and uncle toms who turn the other cheek rather than use their platform.
