Or imagine a brutal rape on the Stanford campus where witnesses catch the rapist , a jury convicts the rapist and a judge gives the rich rapist Stanford student only six months in jail. Then you learn that same judge was involved in a case where a poor mother was unable to hire a lawyer to defend her daughter in a custody case so that the father was awarded 100% custody and used that time to drug, rape and kill his own child, and the judges of the county respond " oh we missed the signs".
