Teacher jailed for 40-years for sex with student age 14. From Daily Mail, 2-18- Shannon Alicia Schmieder, 39, will have to serve 20 years in the toughest sentence ever handed out by a U.S. court to a teacher accused of underage sex, The Daily Mail reported (February 18, 2012).
And from human-stupidity.com (8/16/13):
Female teacher Shannon Alicia Schmieder, in Coweta, Georgia received a 40-year jail sentence for sex with a 14-year-old boy. This fills some men’s rights proponents with glee: finally a woman gets a taste of the bitter “age of consent” medicine concocted by feminists and religious zealots: the same high jail terms men routinely get sentenced to. Making love carries the same prison term as murder or manslaughter.
Actually, her 40-year prison (not jail) sentence “fills” nearly all MRAs with “glee.” And her sentence, if she serves the full 40-years, is roughly 7-times more severe than the average-time served for murder, and almost 4-times more severe if she’s paroled after “only” 20-years. 40-years in prison, under a plea-bargain, apparently, and she won’t be eligible for parole until she’s been enslaved and abused and degraded for 20 years in a chthonic Georgia prison -at least 20-years if not longer in a country in which, during the 1990’s, the decade in which the U.S. began to “get tough on crime,” the average time-served for murder was less than 6-years and the average time-served for all violent felonies (aggravated assault, robbery, rape, and homicide) was approximately 4-years! And one can be sure that over-90% of these felonies, among the male offenders, were committed by recidivists, most of whom should have been in prison rather than free to commit more violent felonies. And given their crime rates in relation to those of females, males are the beneficiaries, overwhelmingly, of this systemic leniency.
So it’s not true that adult men, including violent and/or recidivist criminals, are “routinely” sentenced to 40-years in prison for having sex with pubescent teenagers under statutory age. I doubt if the average sentence for all adult men, including those with prior criminal records, is even 4-5 years. It’s true that male teachers are often sentenced to 10-20 years in prison for having love affairs and mere trysts with underage female and male adolescents in a country in which violent and/or recidivist male criminals are routinely and systematically coddled.
But rather than decry and oppose the hideously draconian prison sentences often inflicted on male teachers and the draconian/Orwellian post-incarceration punishments inflicted on all male teachers -virtually all of whom are first-offenders convicted of nonviolent and usually victimless and mala prohibita felonies that are often legal acts (or perhaps misdemeanors) in dozens of other nations, including European countries, men who’ve never committed a violent or other mala in se crime in their lives and almost surely never will and are not a “threat to society” or to anyone nor usually even a danger to re-offend by having sex with another underage teenager- MRAs demand that the lives of women be destroyed by the same hideously draconian/Orwellian punishments.
So pathological and virulent and obsessive is their hatred of women and lust for vengeance -against not only those they revile and asperse as “feminazis” but women in general and white females in particular, usually because of the actions of one or a few women in their personal lives, nearly always ex-wives, and/or sexual frustration- that they’re willing to destroy the lives of myriads of men who are not violent or dangerous in order to destroy the lives of a much smaller number of women who transport biological men under statutory age to carnal Elysium.
And with a distinctly venomous fixation on and obsession with notorious “rapists” and “pedophiles” like Mary Letourneau, Debra Lafave, and other teachers who, in contrast to men in the inverted fantasy world these deranged misogynists inhabit, nearly always receive “a slap on the wrist” and little or no serious punishment.
Consummate and tireless practitioners of the logical fallacy of confirmation bias, “masculinists” cherry-pick cases in which men are sentenced to 20-30 years in prison for having sex with underage adolescents, males and females, and contrast them with cases of women who receive probation or “only” 6-12 months in jail or “only” 1 or 2 years in prison, thus advancing the lie and canard that men are nearly always sentenced to 20 or 30 years in prison while women are nearly always sentenced to probation or a few months in jails that are benign and liveable compared to male prisons and the male housing units of jails -not because male inmates, generally, are far more violent, brutal, vicious, sadistic, predatory, etc., but because of “misandry” and anti-male “sexism” and discrimination. Men are crucified, almost invariably, their lives destroyed, while female “rapists,” “predators,” “child molesters,” and “pedophiles” are shockingly and scandalously indulged, almost invariably, walking away with a “slap-on-the-wrist.”
Tell that to Shannon Schmieder, Michelle Taylor, Abigail Simon, Kathryn Ronk, Mary Letourneau, Cassandra Sorenson-Grohall, Melissa Bittner (a transparently innocent women who was sentenced to a year in prison for “sexual assaults” that were committed against her by her “victim,” a 16-year-old criminal who was charged with murder shortly thereafter), Pamela Rogers. and many other women who are punished more or even far more severely than myriads of violent male criminals, usually recidivists, who commit aggravated assaults, muggings, armed robberies, gang-shootings, home invasions, rape, gang-rapes, and murders.
And even those who are sentenced to probation or “only” 6-12 months in hellish jails are actually sentenced to a lifetime or at at least 20-30 years of draconian/Orwellian persecution, including public registration (their names, mug-shots, and addresses on the internet for all to see and what that entails in regard to danger and mortification) as uniquely dangerous and degenerate criminals, unlike myriads of male brutes and savages with histories of crime and violence beginning at age 13 or 14 who’ve committed dozens and scores of violent and other mala in se crimes but have never been convicted of a sexual offense albeit most of them have committed rapes and/or gang-rapes either of men in jails and prisons and/or of women and adolescent girls in the free world.
Even Debra Lafave, one of few women, and perhaps the only female, to receive probation with no jail time since the Letourneau hysteria of 1997, was punished more severely in many ways than violent and/or recidivist male criminals who’ve never been convicted of a sexual offense: 3-years of house-arrest (prohibited from leaving her mother’s house while not working), 7-years of parole, at least 10 years of electronic parole-monitoring with an ankle-tether/”bracelet” she could never remove; restrictions of her freedoms and intrusions into her private life that don’t apply to violent and/or recidivist male criminals who’ve never been convicted of a sexual offense (she was arrested and jailed and could have been sentenced to 15-years in prison for talking to a 17-year-old female co-worker about non-work related matters at a fast-food restaurant); and a life-sentence of public sex-offender registration.
Yes, all this was/is a “slap on the wrist” for the vile and heinous crime of engaging in a few acts of coitus and fellatio with a young man under statutory age, consensual sex the memories of which the de jure “victim” will forever cherish. And this was defined as “rape” and Debra as a “rapist” and the young man as a “victim” who is “traumatized” and “scarred for life” by having sex with a gorgeous and ravishing 23-year-old woman. The only suffering and “trauma” he endured was a result of the law and criminal justice system, and the media and its histrionic and sensationalist coverage, not only local and state but also national and even international, turning Debra into the most infamous and despised woman sex criminal since Mary Letourneau.
