    "Better not to feel too much until the crisis ends—and if it never ends, at least we’ll have suffered a little less, developed a useful dullness...The constant—and very real—fear of being hurt, the fear of death, of intolerable loss, or even of “mere” humiliation, leads each of us, the citizens and prisoners of the conflict, to dampen our own vitality, our emotional and intellectual range, and to cloak ourselves in more and more protective layers until we suffocate." - Toni Morrison

    Sure.

    Give him a long sentence he rots in prison for a bit and leaves to obscurity to live out his life as a sex offender.

    Give him a short sentence, everyone knows his name, everyone knows his face, everyone knows how shitty his family is and news articles about him plaster every corner of the internet and everyone knows he's a rapist til the end of time.


    But i guess the angry mobs aren't satisfied until he gets his share of prison rape.

    Omg I almost agree with you, that's infuriating

    Weird, would've expected you to be more of a pro-rapist kinda guy.

    Regardless of what you think works best, public shaming/living in fear isn't a legally recognized sentence. The legally recognized sentence is 6 months in this case. Even if he became a target for vigilante justice while walking around as a free man (which I'd personally be fine with), that doesn't mean the justice system isn't failing here, in fact it means exactly that.

    I have lots of things to say to that, but I'll go ahead and let Neville fight his own battles.

    It sort of is, he's going to have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

    Yeah, but I think that's essentially to protect society.

    Maybe we should just skip all the formalities and go with a thunderdome approach.
