One Thousand Five Hundred Three Years

Fight: Mikasa awakens ― Detail of frame from Attack on Titan episode 6, 'The World the Girl Saw: The Struggle for Trost, Part 2'.

This is the short form:

A 41-year-old California man has been sentenced to 1,503 years in prison for raping his teenage daughter over four years.

The Fresno County District Attorney’s Office detailed the harrowing numbers:

On September 22nd, Mr. Lopez was found guilty of one hundred eighty-six (186) counts of sexual assault; including twenty-two (22) counts of Rape of a Minor, one hundred sixty-three (163) counts of Forcible Rape, and one (1) count of Forcible Oral Copulation. These crimes were perpetrated on a single victim over a period of five (5) years from 2009 to 2014.

Justice Answering Hatred

VIII. Adjustment.

The report from Cleve Wootson, Jr. for the Washington Post:

A jury has convicted an Atlanta truck driver accused of pouring boiling water over two gay men as the couple slept in February.

The jury deliberated for about 90 minutes Wednesday before finding Martin Blackwell guilty of eight counts of aggravated battery and two counts of aggravated assault, according to the Associated Press.

Blackwell was sentenced to 40 years in prison.

Three words: United States of America.

Two more: Scald attack.

And one more: Bigotry.

This is not complicated math.
