Cory Batey, a Vanderbilt University football player, gang raped an unconscious woman three years ago. As heinous as that is, it’s his reason that will make your blood boil. He said he did it as pay back for 400 years of slavery. Slavery that ended well over 100 years ago… slavery that has nothing to do with any of us today. But when you are in the mood for rape, I guess any ole excuse will do. He got off way too light in my opinion.
Batey got 15 years and then will be on a sex-offender registry the rest of his life.
They should have thrown him in a pit where he never saw the light of day again.
From Young Conservatives:
A judge Friday sentenced former Vanderbilt University football player Cory Batey to 15 years in prison, but said the man’s true punishment for raping an unconscious woman three years ago was a life sentence.
“It is one of the saddest cases that I have ever encountered,” Criminal Court Judge Monte Watkins said. “And I’ve been in the legal business for 32 years.”
The judge said he’s seen many cases involving young people who made bad decisions and had to weigh how his punishment would impact the victim, the defendant and their families.
“All of the defendants in this case basically have life sentences,” Watkins said. “After they get out of jail or prison they will be on the sex-offender registry for the rest of their lives. That’s a life sentence in and of itself.”
The prison sentence handed down was the minimum and for the life of me, I do not understand why this judge didn’t throw the book at this scum. He certainly deserved it. The ruling came at the end of a 90-minute hearing in which the rape victim gave an emotional statement about her own life sentence. She spoke from a podium, reading her statement, pausing to cry while looking up at the judge. The victim knows that she will relive this rape over and over again as it is out on the web and will never go away.
According to the Tennessean, the woman was 21 and unconscious when police say four men raped her on the floor of a university dorm on June 23rd, 2013. On Friday, multiple sources confirmed to The Tennessean the statement that Batey made: “That’s for 400 years of slavery you b—-,” Batey said, according to the sources. And yet, he got the minimum sentence. Gee, go figure.
Batey is a violent, racist predator that will never learn his lesson. When he gets out, he’ll be right back at it. He “apologized” and asked for forgiveness even calling the rape an “unintentional tragedy.” How do you ‘unintentionally’ rape someone? Even if you are drunk?
This beast deserves no forgiveness whatsoever. In the victim’s statement she said that, “Mr. Batey continued to abuse and degrade me, urinating on my face while uttering horrific racial hate speech that suggested I deserved what he was doing to me because of the color of my skin. He didn’t even know who I was.” Two pastors spoke on Batey’s behalf saying that he was a church-going man capable of rehabilitation. No, he isn’t – he’s a vicious degenerate and deserves far worse than he got. Far worse.
