The (silent) voice of Brock Turner’s mother

I liked Brock Turner’s mother better before she spoke. After I wrote this piece, Brockie’s mommy wrote to the judge begging for leniency. I guess now we have to say that, in fact, this kid seems never to have been taught to take responsibility for his actions or to realize that the world is not his personal candy store. Thanks to LopezJayLo98 for pointing me to this letter, as depressing as it may be. To avoid going batshit with rage at the way this letter completely disregards the victim’s suffering, I am going to read this letter as a cautionary tale in parenting: if you let your children behave as if they can do anything they want…they will.Click here for a report and a link to the letter.
