Season 2 of "13 Reasons Why" features the sentencing of Bryce Walker for crimes of sexual assault.
A lot of people who watch the show are angry because of the sentence the judge gave to Bryce. If we as people can be angry at fictional situations, why are we not as angry at the real-life situations that occur every day dealing with sexual assault and it's victims.
For instance, in 2015, Brock Turner raped an unconscious woman and was sentenced to six months in jail followed by three years of probation; however, Turner only served half of this sentence. The judge's premises for this sentence was that Turner was an upstanding student of Stanford University as well as an athlete for the University. The same type of premises was used in Bryce Walker's case in the show because not only was he a student-athlete, but his family contributed a lot of money to the school.
These types of cases are common, especially today when so many victims of sexual assault are not getting the justice they deserve because their assailant is privileged and uses it to their advantage. White, high-class citizens are those among the privileged that are being allowed to commit crimes and not serve time for what they have done.
We as people must have the morals and the will to fight these injustices and force the system that has let so many victims down to make things right. If everyone is fighting and protesting we cannot be ignored. Then cases like Brock Turner's and Bryce Walker's will have fair justice and the victims will gain a sense of peace.
