So apparently a Facebook group was formed for witches/pagans etc to come together at a certain time and all place a hex on Brock Turner. Apparently about 600 people signed up for the Facebook group.
I’m curious what people think. I am not a witch of pagan or anything like that, so I don’t believe it will do anything, but at the same time it seems to me that if you honestly believed this would work, isn’t this a lot of effort to expect on this little piece of garbage? In a weird way it feels like it is reinforcing the idea that Turner is somehow extra special.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not minimizing what his victim was put through. The sentence Turner received was not enough. But in a world where groups like Boko Haram or Daesh can set up institutionalized rape program seemingly with impunity, why are 600 people focusing all this energy at one guy? It feels like bandwagon jumping.
