“As the judge in the Stanford rape case learned, along with the judge in the ‘affluenza’ drunken driving case, the whole world is watching them. A crowd, an angry crowd, can form in a matter of days of people outraged by what they consider a lenient sentence for a heinous crime. In the case of Judge John McKeon, as of early morning Wednesday, almost 20,000 people had signed a Change.org petition calling for his impeachment for the 60-day sentence he gave a Glasgow, Mont., man who pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping his prepubescent daughter.” 

This is SICK and it continues to happen. Something is wrong because you know if the admitted rapist was black, he would have received a much tougher sentence.
