In case you haven’t heard, former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner was convicted of raping and assaulting an unconscious woman and received a mere six month sentence in county jail. Not to mention his father, Dan Turner, wrote a dismissive letter to the judge, defending his son.
People across the Internet have been expressing outrage over the case, including a father from North Carolina named John Pavlovitz. He wrote a blog post addressing the swimmer’s dad — father to father:
I need you to understand something, and I say this as a father who dearly loves my son as much as you must love yours:
Brock is not the victim here.
His victim is the victim.
She is the wounded one.
He is the damager.
