A story out of the land of 10,000 lakes will make your stomach turn due to the gross miscarriage of justice that a liberal judge just committed.
Minnesota has become the northern equivalent of California when it comes to being outside the realm of the mainstream United States. This is evident by the whackos that the greater Minneapolis area sends to Congress like Al Franken and Keith Ellison who are two of the most radical members of the Democratic Party.
But a recent decision that only sentenced a child rapist to six months in jail for forcing himself upon a 14-year old who was – pardon my political incorrectness – mentally retarded is an absolute disgrace as well as an affront to law and order.
A 19-year-old man has been given the equivalent of the slap on the wrist for his rape of the teenager who had an IQ of 57. The man was reportedly someone who did chores for the family but exploited his position within the circle of trust to molest the girl.
According to the criminal complaint:
The girl and her mother told police that Crawford, who had done a few chores for the family in the past, met the teen after school and walked her home. He offered to wash the family’s car and asked the girl whether she had ever been kissed.
Crawford then fondled her, stripped her below the waist and raped her.
Analysis of DNA evidence collected from the teen concluded that Crawford was the perpetrator.
But thanks to the liberal inclination of the Minnesota justice system, he picked up his “Get out of Jail Free’ card and will be free to rape whoever he pleases, IF he pleases in six months.
Sentence leaves fewer than 100 days left to serve for man who raped vulnerable Minneapolis teen https://t.co/vBzUWEwW6h

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune “180-day sentence for man who raped vulnerable Minneapolis teen”:
A 19-year-old man has been sentenced to 180 days in jail for raping a 14-year-old Minneapolis girl who is developmentally diminished.
Damarlo R. Crawford’s victim had an IQ of 57 at the time of the assault, which occurred in September 2016 after he walked the girl home from school.
Judge Lisa Janzen’s sentence in Hennepin County District Court last week gave Crawford, of Minneapolis, credit for 82 days in jail since his arrest. A prison term of four years was stayed.
Janzen also ordered Crawford, who pleaded guilty to third-degree criminal sexual conduct, to register as a predatory offender and enroll in a treatment program, provide a DNA sample to authorities and have no contact with minors other than his siblings. He also must stay away from alcohol, illicit drugs and firearms during his five years of probation.
Court records indicate that the sentence falls within state guidelines. The maximum term for a conviction on this count is 15 years.
In a statement, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman called the sentence “a negotiated resolution to the case, agreed upon by the family.”
This sort of madness is certainly consistent with the sort of decisions that are coming out of Minneapolis which is a city in the position to lord it over an entire state, much of which is conservative in more remote counties.
It’s a sad day for justice when a scumbag is able to traumatically violate a young girl like this and then be given the equivalent of amnesty by the wolves who are tasked with guarding the henhouse.
