Sex crime cases in the news: Richard Huckle and Brock Turner

I've blogged giving some of my opinions, but I'd be interested to hear from others, so I thought I'd open the floor for comments and discussion.

It appears to me, in relation to the Brock Turner case anyway, that entitlement appears to supersede empathy in certain people. "I want, therefore I will take". You see that behaviour a lot in young children, and most of us are quickly taught that that's not okay. But you have certain people, through a variety of circumstances, who don't learn that. That, in combination with women being seen by some as inferior, creates a dangerous situation.

That link isn't working for me Miriam, not sure if it's a general issue but it's asking me to log in.

Thanks for letting me know, Astra. I've fixed it now, it was linking to my account as author, rather than the ordinary wordpress interface, sorry. At least there is a link in my signature to get there anyway!

I know I shouldn't be getting my news from Buzzfeed but I've been following the Brock Turner case for a few weeks. Looks like there could still be justice...
