Too Much Potential To Go To Jail

People screamed and yelled--and justifiably so--when Stanford swimmer Brock Turner got off light for rape.  Rich white male privilege doesn’t explain this one; why were people so riled up about Turner's case but have nary a peep to say about this one?
Oxford University student who stabbed her Tinder lover in a drink and drug fuelled row could be spared jail by a judge because she's 'extraordinary' and it would damage her surgeon career
Don't you see yet?  It's not about sex, it's about class.

Well, she wasn't even anywhere near BEING an actual surgeon yet, so she didn't have a career yet.
But class hath its privileges, to be certain.
I'd be so pleased to know that the surgeon opening me up has a history of drink and drug fueled mistakes...
