Campaign uses Mostly False specter of Brock Turner case to oppose Prop 57

“Brock Turner’s early release will be a regular occurrence if Prop. 57 passes,” claims the headline of a news release on the Stop57.com campaign website.

Later in the press release, the campaign expanded on this claim saying Prop 57 “would make reduced sentences and early release for persons convicted of the same sex crimes committed by Turner a permanent part of California law.”

We decided to fact check the bold claim in the headline, and to keep in mind the context included later in the press release. Full Article

    I have a colleague that hit the nail on the head, over ten years ago.

    “STUNG’S FIRST POSTULATE: The purpose of all sex offender legislation is to return all sex offenders, no matter the level or date of their offense, to prison for the rest of their life.”

    Virtually every law that is created is directed toward that ultimate point of commonality.

    This is why it is so sad to be a liberal today. The leadership keeps backing itself into a corner with this tough on sexual assault by ramping up criminal punishment posturing, intead of pushing for, well, more liberal and humanistic solutions. This is an example how it is backfiring. They need to focus on moving resources towards rehabilitation and away from retribution, be consistent in that stance and show its real value as sound public policy, rather than playing into the hand of the criminal/industrialists who wish to keep their cages as overcrowded as can be had and continually serving as public resource dumps.
