Here is what was listed as the punishment for those 2 jerks that raped a 16 year old girl. Oh, not only did they rape her, they shared pictures of it.
A judge ordered Richmond held in a juvenile detention facility for at least one year and Mays for at least two years. The juvenile system could hold them until age 21. Both were required to register as juvenile sex offenders.
So, you rape a young girl, post pictures of it, and you get 1 and 2 years of “detention” respectively. Is it no surprise that people keep on raping? They go to jail, serve their sentence, come back out and do it again. Why? Because if you are only getting a couple of years, you can exercise the thrill of raping several times before you ever get any real jail time.
Let me ask you a question though, and yes, I know you kumbaya save the world types are not going to like this, but humor me for just a quick moment. If a rapist gets his balls cut off, do you think that there will continue to be as many rapes as there are today? Do you think that Mal’ik Richmond and Trent Mays would be posting pictures of a rape, let alone actually raping someone?
Is it harsh? Sure, but the punishment should fit the crime. Do you realize that these guys are getting less jail time than a guy that sells weed, or a guy that gets into a fist fight and beats someone up? I know of a man that receive 25 years straight for selling drugs, and these guys get one year? How is that fair? 1 year, after raping a young girl? She’ll carry those scars for the rest of her life. One year? One year? One year? One year?
That is absolutely crazy, these laws must change. Rapist and child molesters must pay in a way that is relative to their crime. One year. You’ve got to be facking kidding me.
