How Leslie Rasmussen’s Victim Blaming Channeled Cheddar Bob

Cheddar Bob is Eminem’s mentally challenged friend in the movie “8 Mile”. He ends up shooting himself in the crotch. Tom Cleary details how Leslie Rasmussen channeled Cheddar Bob.

Brock Turner As Eminem

Former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner was convicted by a jury in March of three felonies, assault with intent to commit rape of an intoxicated woman, sexually penetrating an intoxicated person with a foreign object and sexually penetrating an unconscious person with a foreign object.

Turner was found guilty of sexually assaulting a woman behind a dumpster on the Stanford campus. He was stopped by two witnesses, a pair of Stanford students from Sweden who were bicycling by, who called out to him and then tackled him to the ground when he ran away, holding him until police arrived.

He faced up to 14 years in prison, but Judge Aaron Persky decided on a sentence many consider too lenient. “A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him,” Persky said at Turner’s sentencing. “I think he will not be a danger to others.”

Turner, of Ohio, was taken to the Santa Clara County Jail to begin his sentence, and could be released after just three months, the prosecutor says. Turner plans to appeal the conviction.

Three to six months for three felonies and he’s appealing? That’s kingpin stuff. Brock Turner is clearly the star of this tale. He’s gonna be OK.

Leslie Rasmussen As Cheddar Bob

Leslie Rasmussen is a childhood friend of Brock Turner. A letter she wrote supporting Turner was made public with many blasting her for being an apologist for a rapist. The letter is chock full of highlights, but here’s my favorite:

“I am not blaming her directly for this, because that isn’t right,” Rasmussen wrote. “But where do we draw the line and stop worrying about being politically correct every second of the day and see that rape on campuses isn’t always because people are rapists?”

The letter stands in sharp contrast to one written by the victim herself, and is similar to a statement prepared by Turner’s father, which has also led to outrage.

Rasmussen is the drummer of the up-and-coming indie grunge-pop band Good English, along with her two sisters, Elizabeth and Celia, and the outrage has spilled over to her music career. In response to the outrage, you can read her full, now-deleted Facebook statement here. She still talks about alcohol as an excuse for rape. She has fully channeled Cheddar Bob.

Several concert venues and festivals have canceled the band’s upcoming appearances. The band has had at least six performances, including five shows in Brooklyn, New York, cancelled because of the statement made by Leslie Rasmussen. The New York Northside Festival said the band will no longer be playing on June 10 at the Brooklyn event. Industry City Distillery, another Brooklyn spot where the band was scheduled to play, wrote on Facebook, “Yesterday, Good English was removed from the roster. The support of rape culture is not tolerated.” Yet another Brooklyn venue, Bar Matchless, wrote on Facebook, “Good English will not be playing Matchless. We do not support victim blaming or rape apologists of any kind.” The band was also removed from the upcoming Dayton Music, Art & Film Festival.

From everything we have seen thus far, Brock turner is going to be ok. He has both the network and financial backing to make it as a private citizen even if he is a registered sex offender. Ms. Rasmussen has to appeal to the public in order to be successful in her chosen profession. The public does not like apologists for rapists. She has shot herself in the crotch trying to help a friend in a fight and then withdrawing from it just like Cheddar Bob.
