Judge Persky should be recalled
Judge Aaron Persky should be recalled not because he gave Brock Turner a light sentence, but because that sentence is the latest manifestation of a pattern.
He has been consistently sympathetic and lenient toward privileged, white offenders. He has been particularly partial to college athletes. And he has given harsher sentences to defendants of color. Look up the Recall Persky website to see the multitude of incidents (recallaaronpersky.com/judge_persky_s_other_cases).
