    DuPont Family Member Rapes Three Year Old Daughter, Does Not Serve Time

    A Delaware man convicted of raping his three-year-old daughter only faced probation after a state Superior Court judge ruled he "will not fare well" in prison.

    In her decision, Judge Jan Jurden suggested Robert H. Richards IV would benefit more from treatment. Richards, who was charged with fourth-degree rape in 2009, is an unemployed heir living off his trust fund. The light sentence has only became public as the result of a subsequent lawsuit filed by his ex-wife, which charges that he penetrated his daughter with his fingers while masturbating, and subsequently assaulted his son as well.

    Richards is the great grandson of du Pont family patriarch Irenee du Pont, a chemical baron.

    The DuPont family has more than a couple of crazies in their ranks. I remember about 10 years ago one of them had bought an old M-113 armored personnel carrier and caused a bunch of trouble on the family compound. I forget how the cops got him out of it, but the standoff lasted several days.

    I wonder if this is the same guy.

    A few months ago, I said that democracy was a failure. Because of the government shutdown; and the fact that were it not for democracy, there would be no shutdown because someone would have the power to keep the government running.

    But, then again... democracy would have only been a failure if you take what democracy says it is at face value.

    Probably the most important feature of democracy is the concept of "equality." There's no royalty or nobility; or anyone who, by law (on paper), enjoys more rights or privileges than you do.

    But... are we naive enough to believe that what's on paper is a reflection of reality?

    There's that famous quote by John Steinbeck: "Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarassed millionaires."

    And why do we see ourselves as temporarily embarassed millionaires? Because our "democracy" has convinced us all that that's what we are.

    Combine that with the fact that the US doesn't have a history of royalty and nobility, like European countries do. Because European countries have that history, the common people knew their place... and thus, knew to rise up against the powers that be.

    American commoners don't know their place. They can't rise up against the powers that be, because they think they're equal. And incidents like what happened in this article still will not convince most otherwise.

    I really do believe that history behind American and European commoners shaped their attitudes toward socialism, and is actually echoed behind how whites and minorities vote in the US.

    Minorities actually have a history of having less legal rights in this country, which enables them to have a more realistic perspective on what their place is in this society. Whites don't have that perspective. That's why you have so many whites who vote Republican, even they make $8/hr sweating their balls off in a warehouse.

    A man who knows his place is more dangerous than a man who does not. Convince him that we're all equal, and he won't know any better.

    Yes, twice.

    I am a new dad, our daughter was raised in an orphanage in China and we are pretty sure she was abused while there (opinion of ours and her doctor) based on how she acts and some other issues. I don't understand how someone could senselessly harm a child like that.

    If we lived in a society where equality exists, his inmates would be doing that to him as we speak.

    But we don't.

    How many enlisted military members get totally disappointment whenever a field grade officer commits a crime, and the punishment is that they simply won't make the next paygrade... or they get forced to retire (sometimes EARLY) with FULL benefits? Worst case scenario being that they might lose one paygrade? When if that SAME crime were to be committed by an enlisted, he'd do hard larbor in prison, get busted to E1, and dishonorably discharged?

    Oh, enlisted get pissed... but they're more disappointed than pissed. Disappointed, because they think the justice system is supposed to be equal. If only... if only, you knew your place.

    Please don't derail your own thread into a race/class thread. You can start one about it somewhere a different one about it somewhere else...maybe the politic thread?

    What pisses me off most about this sort of thing is that you have caring, loving parents who get thrown in jail for simply disciplining their children. Then you have a worm like this. He wouldn't "fare will" in prison? Is it supposed to be any different? Does any other child rapist fare well in prison? They get what they deserve. They deserve to suffer. If it's determined he needs treatment then so be it. But it should be in conjunction with being someone's bitch.

    Your derogotory and slightly racist rant might mean more if "One Percenters" were the only ones to receive rediculous sentenses for such crimes because "they wouldn't do well in prison". This isn't the first time this kind of crap has happened.

    We can eliminate race from it, as I included it to demonstrate something.

    Class? Unfortunately, it CANNOT be eliminated. He's a member of the DuPont family. Anyone would else would have gotten a harsh sentence.

    The example you gave was a random abnormal occurance.

    If you think for one second that, as the norm, people with money do not get off light compared to those who do not, then you're naive. This is pretty much the same thing as the drunk rich kid who killed four people while driving his daddy's truck.

    As far as this guy not faring well in prison, I call bullshit. I'm from Delaware. While Wilmington does have more crime per capita than Philadelphia (just like Camden, NJ), taking the whole state of Delaware into account... Delaware prisons are a fucking joke. There are only three in the whole state, one for each county.

    Personally, if I was the governor of Delaware; I would pay New Jersey to take our child rapists.

    Even if he was in a "hard" prison... like San Quentin or Riker's Island, he could EASILY stand up a large group of inmates to protect him by setting up recurring funds to their commissary accounts.

    We do hear of several instances with this sort of thing happening...the light/no sentence thing...for rich/famous people.

    I am curious how often it happens with the lower classes. The "1%" is just that, so it's easy for the media to cover and we are almost all going to hear about it. But then you have the other 99%, which can't possibly be covered as easily...I'd be willing to guess there are several who get off pretty easy from the lower class. It's just not public enough for us to hear because it's not going make the "News" channels any money. I have a hard time believing that there aren't several poverty level to upper middle class people who have recieved a similar sentence. It's just not going to make the news if it's about John Smith from Bristol Tennessee.
