Brock Turner has been placed in protective custody to keep him safe from other inmates. Ironic considering he raped a young woman behind a dumpster. If only his victim had the same protection he does.

Two College Athletes. Each were caught and found guilty of raping an unconscious woman which calls for a minumum 15 year sentence. Brock Turner received 6 months in local jail and will probably get out in 3 months while Cory Batey must serve the minimum 15 years in prison. And the rhetorical question is; Why didn't these men receive the same sentence? What could possibly be the difference between them...? http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/king-brock-turner-cory-batey-show-race-affects
