STANFORD, CA (WCMH) – A group of witches unsatisfied with the sentence of former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner gathered Tuesday for a mass ‘hexing.’
The organizer invited more than a thousand people to gather at home altars and recite the following:
Brock Allen Turner we hex you.
You will be impotent
You will know constant pain of pine needles in your guts
Food will bring you no sustenance
In water, your lungs will fail you
Sleep will only bring nightmares
Shame will be your mantle.
You will meet justice.
My witchcraft is strong. Our witchcraft is powerful. The spell will work. So Mote it be.
Brock Turner, 20, who is from the Dayton, Ohio area, was sentenced last week to six months in jail and three years’ probation for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman, sparking outrage from critics who say Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky was too lenient on a privileged athlete from a top-tier swimming program.
Some involved in the hexing event hope the tactic will regularly be used against men who rape women.
