    That Asian gang in Rotherham got 20 years.
    For different crimes. Johnson's crimes had a maximum sentencing range of up to 10 years.

    He won't serve nowhere near six years. They often do that with white inmates, give the appearance of a harsh sentence, but their whiteness, get's them out on way under. Ched Evans (The footballer) was sentenced to five years for rape but only served two. Because he was white. The same will happen to Adam Johnson

    What happens in the USA is completely irrelevant to the situation in the UK.

    I disagree with your first sentence. He probably won't end up spending anywhere near six years in prison because halving sentences is a common practice, regardless of skin colour.
