Uh, there was another story
that I want to make suredoesn't get forgotten.
Now, this one's about a judgewho was, let's say,
a bit too cavalierin his sentencing.
REPORTER: 20-year-old swimming star Brock Turner
could have been looking at 14 years
for sexually assaulting an intoxicated
and unconscious woman
behind a Dumpster on Stanford's campus.
But instead of 14 years, a judge has ruled Turner
will only spend six months in jail,
eligible for parole in three months.
Hold on a second.
It's 14 years or six months?
Those are the two options?
There's got to besomething in between,
like-like 13 years, maybe?
Or 13 years and six months?
What am I missing?
Or... or what the (bleep)
was wrong with 14 years?
How about that?
So, anyhow, the judgesaid he understood
the devastationthe victim suffered.
Uh, but thatthe "prison sentence would have
a severe impact" on Brock.
Yes, because if anyoneisn't supposed to change
after a brutal attack,it's the attacker.
Brock, man, we're gonnalock you up for a bit,
but promise you won't losethat rapey side we love so much,
all right, man?Don't change, man, don't change.
Now, in California,the mandatory minimum
for this type of caseis two years,
and a judge can sentencebelow that, but why would he?
REPORTER: The judge's reasoning? The rape carried
"less moral culpability because Turner was drunk
at the time of the attack."
That's a defense?
Was this judge drunkat the time of sentencing?
How...Guys, think about this.
How does "too drunk" workas an excuse for any crime?
Sorry I committed that DUI.In my defense, I was drunk.
Get out of here.
Drunk should never be an excuse.
My coworkers still haven'tforgiven me for
the drunken crimes I committedat staff karaoke night.
Right? Still paying for that.
Now, it could be that the judgemay have been swayed by a letter
from Brock 's daddyin which he wrote...
"that is a steep priceto pay..."
I smell almonds.Am I having a stroke?
"20 minutes of action?"
He describes rape as "action"?
Okay, I've said this before:there's a reason why
we have words, okay?
And those two wordsare not the same.
Only the most horribletype of human scum
would say somethinglike that-- "action."
Not to mention, you would bethe worst movie director ever.
All right, everybody,quiet on the set. Quiet.
Okay, that was bad.That was horrible.
-I know, I know. True. Um...-(cheering, applause)
Actually, uh, actually,you'd be tied with
Roman Polanskiand Woody Allen. But...
That's right, I went there.
But... but action-dadwasn't done.
"I was always excitedto buy him...
Who gives a (bleep)?
Oh... oh, the poor widdle fella.
Is the rapisttoo raped out to eat steak?
Okay, here's what'sreally gets me about this, guys.
and this is the best we can doabout sexual assault?
I... This is exhausting,you guys.
Like, take this (bleep),
who I haven'tforgotten about, right?
Okay, he's accusedof over 50 "actions,"
and we can barely get himinto a (bleep) courtroom.
REPORTER: We see he's making his way there
through the metal detector.
You're not blind.Open your goddamn eyes,
you fake-blind (bleep)!
But anyway, I just thinkas a society, today,
I just think we have to finda way to do better.
We'll be right back.
