So why is that?

You first. You started this thread, after all. Your hypothesis is that American rapists get 1-2 year sentences (or at least minor sentences), so back it up with evidence. If you do so, I'll be happy to counteract that. I checked the entire thread and all I found from you are links RE: harsh marijuana sentences, not rape sentences. True crime and psychology is an interest of mine. I'm waiting. . .

Probably due to the plea bargain system we have here. If everyone chose their day in court, we would be so backlogged. So prosecutors threaten to throw the book at the accused and then after wrangling between lawyers a plea agreement is met. This sux for the victims, AND for the wrongfully accused who are often scared into taking a deal, rather than taking it to trial, cos if fojnd guilty, they could get decades for something they didn't do.

Really!?! Women have support, and safe houses, and all manner of groups they can go to when they are abused and raped. Men, yeah...not so much.
In my town we have a group called WOMEN in Need. They have a shelter and provide support to victims of assault sexual and non. If a man calls their group, they get a few nights in a motel maybe, and a scripted response about limited resources.
The fact of the matter is, men most times don't talk abou4 being abused or raped.

Don't tell me judges aren't sexist pieces of **** because they most definitely are and as men don't give a **** what happens to women, otherwise these little boys with their little wee wees would at most be executed and at least be sentenced to many decades in prison! F'n sub-human animal men!

Oh give me an f'n break! Men don't need these ANYWHERE NEAR what women need them! Perhaps if men actually started to understand the concepts of empathy/sympathy they wouldn't feel the need to abuse their wives/gfs and abandon their children all the god damn time!

You're going too far with your attacks on men. SOME of us ARE low lifes, NOT all. Too; would YOU feel that women judges need to be raped IF they let off female child molesters, I'm talking about adult women abusing little kids here, NOT some lady getting banged by an adult looking dude whose 15 years or older.

You sound like a rapist yourself.

Always interesting to see how sick a person can become with a bit of power.

I follow criminal cases online of all sorts of things and time after time after time convicted rapists may get 1 or even 2 years in prison if the woman that has been raped is lucky. People caught with pot get WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY harsher sentences even despite the fact it's nowhere NEAR as bad as rape which traumatizes women for years, plenty for their whole lives with PTSD.

Maybe it's harsher in other countries, but in the U.S of A if you rape a woman you certainly don't have to worry about getting punished that badly for it even despite the magnitude of the crime. There was a case awhile back where a rapist only got 30 days in jail and some community service, W....T...F????

Do we just have some very pig headed sexist ***** for judges that think rape is just not the big a deal and don't give a **** about women? If their own daughters were raped do you think they'd give anymore of a ****? There is NO reason why a convicted rapist shouldn't be doing AT LEAST 20 years for it (with hopefully some prison rape thrown in for good measure). Is it any wonder that rape is so common in America when rapists get off with a slap on the wrist? Again, someone caught with weed routinely get sent to the slammer for decades yet traumatizing a woman very likely for life apparently most judges don't see as that big a deal get off with just a few years if that.

So why is that?
Average sentence for rape is 3 years. Pot possession is misdemeanor, and 1st times typically get away with a fine.

He goes out and rapes more people, that's what.
