White Privilege on Full Display: Judge Blatantly Disregarded Turner’s Extensive History of Alcohol and Drug Use in Sentencing

On NBC’s Today Show, damning new evidence reveals that Stanford University swimmer Brock Turner had a history of drug and alcohol use before the 2015 rape of an unconscious female student.

This new information from NBC, revealed in yesterday’s show, chips away at Turner’s clean-cut image. Court documents show that he has used acid, marijuana, and has done “candyflipping” — which is the act of mixing LSD and MDMA together.

These documents also reveal that his high school counselor has withdrawn his letter of support defending Turner’s reputation.

Even though Turner has a six-month jail sentence, NBC‘s Gadi Schwartz reports that he could be out by Labor Day with good behavior.
