Plastic Jesus' work of art plays on Turner's joke of a sentence.
Remember Brock Turner, the former Stanford swimmer who was convicted of raping a passed out, intoxicated woman? For good behavior, the rapist was released from prison three months early (after receiving a sentence of only six months). Understandably, this news has infuriated many, considering that one could spend their life behind bars for cultivating marijuana, a herb proven to benefit a number of afflictions.
In addition to people protesting outside the rapist’s home, some are raising awareness about Turner’s joke of a sentence through art. One such activist is Plastic Jesus, who is probably best recognized for creating a wall around Donald Trump’s Hollywood Star.
Recently, the street artist posted a photo of his contribution to the debacle on Instagram. Plastic Jesus pointed out that vandalizing city property could earn him up to three years in prison. Damage less than $400 could still earn him up to a year behind bars. The point he sought to make can’t be missed.
#Streetart #graffiti #rape #brockturner #stanford #paint – background info: graffiti/ Streetart is considered criminal vandalism. If damage exceeds $400 it is a felony with up to 3 years jail time. Below $400 is misdemeanor 1 year jail time. And let's be honest if the city send out one guy with a pot of paint and a brush they are gonna cost it at more than $400. @streetartglobe @fuckjerry coming soon to an electrical box near you. UPDATE NOTE. ' realised' is British spelling. I maintain that part of my identity
