Channing Tatum is once again proving what an all-round great guy he is, sharing his views on the leniency of Brock Turner‘s six month jail sentence for rape.
‘If you start doing that where do you stop? Where is the line? I don’t think it’s right. I think he should have been punished, personally.’ He went on to add, ‘It’s like if you killed someone and got caught red-handed and just because you went to a nice school and were a good swimmer. you somehow get a lesser sentence. That just doesn’t make sense.’
When Judge Aaron Perksy gave his reasoning for such a lenient sentence, ‘Prison sentence would have a severe impact on [Turner]’ and did not think Turner would be ‘a danger to others’.
Channing responded to this and said ‘I think it’s a horrible idea to let someone off because possibly of what they are going to be capable of doing.’
There is now a change.org petition for the judges dismissal that has so far collected over a million signatures.
