Rich white man Robert H. Richards IV gets no jail time because he “will not fare well” in prison

(trigger warning: rape, child abuse)

Robert H. Richards IV raped his 3 year old daughter and abused his toddler. A Delaware Superior Court decided he should get treatment and probation because “he will not fare well” in prison.

I thought that’s the point.

Seriously: So many young men and women (not only but especially poor and of color) get thrown in jail for non-violent drug offenses. I’m also against most forms of state-sanctioned violence. But Robert H. Richards IV’s crime is so heinous.. If the warden threw him in a cell with a couple of wise guys and leaked the reason he’s in jail… I wouldn’t complain.
