Letter: Rape is rape — Brock Turner should be sitting in state prison as I write this



Rape is rape, irrespective of the
sufferer’s stage of intoxication

Wow! I’m utterly blown away by Marialis Seehorn’s perspective blaming the sufferer within the Brock Turner case. (“Persky accurately fulfilled his accountability,” Letters to the Editor, Could 10).

Rape is rape, irrespective of the extent of intoxication the sufferer could also be in. Getting drunk does not give anybody free rein to sexually assault somebody.

Turner needs to be sitting in state jail as I write this.
