Outrage Grows Over Judge Who Gave Rapist Brock Turner Slap On Wrist
The world of rape is getting so out of hand, From Cosby's scandals to literally hundreds of cases where men mostly white are being let go for the most the invasive crime one could commit, rape. The move to have Judge Aaron Persky removed from the bench is still an ongoing effort.
People are still outraged about the Brock Turner case where thee 20 year old Standford college student admitted to raping and unconscious woman behind a dumpster. The petition to have him removed garnered just under 1.3 million signatures organized by Maria Ruiz and Sharika Soal was delivered to the San Jose courthouse August 1st 2016. Michelle has also been a front runner in this campaign and she spoke with Lady Thriller about the political campaign's next move
“We will continue to proceed with the recall election. It is important for Santa Clara County voters to decide whether Judge Persky should remain on the bench for the next six years.”
Palo Alto, CA --- The Recall Judge Persky Campaign Chair Michele Dauber made the following statement in response of Judge Aaron Persky decision to temporarily remove himself from criminal cases: “We will continue to proceed with the recall election as it is important for Santa Clara County voters to decide whether Judge Persky should remain on the bench for the next six years. We are relieved that Judge Persky will not be handling criminal cases, at least temporarily. However, he will still be a judge, and judges rotate annually in our county. He can still transfer back to hearing criminal cases any time he chooses.”
“The issue of his judicial bias in favor of privileged defendants in sex crimes and domestic violence still must be addressed by the voters of Santa Clara County. Furthermore, judicial bias is just as serious regardless of whether a case is civil or criminal. Many issues affecting women are heard in civil court every day. In fact, one of the most disturbing instances of his bias was in the De Anza gang rape case, in which a victim of an alleged gang rape by the members of a college baseball team was subjected to biased rulings from Judge Persky that allowed the defendants to place into evidence pictures of the victim attending the party in a revealing outfit taken more than a year after the assault to supposedly prove that she didn't actually have PTSD.”
In our opinion, Judge Persky is biased and should not be on the bench. And voters of Santa Clara County will have the choice to decide.
