Just no Telegraph, Really

Two thirds of rape victims drop out of prosecutions over phone searches

No.

We don’t know whether a rape even happened until at least some investigation is done into the claim that one did. Sp an alledger or claimant is that, not a victim. Further, only some of those who do drop out in the process are doing so over phone searches. Not all of those who drop out.

Finally, given that some folks have been found not guilty of rape as a result of phone searches – the incident turning out to be perhaps morning after regret, or even the presumption of the start of a relationship that didn’t, say – then it’s rather good that some do drop out of the process as a result of phone searches, isn’t it?

  1. ’… then it’s rather good that some do drop out of the process as a result of phone searches, isn’t it?’

    That rather depends on what you think the ultimate goal of the justice system ought to be, doesn’t it?

  2. More likely that the phone would demonstrate she’s been whoring around to the masses and doesn’t want that revealed to the world at large rape or no rape.

  3. Of course, they are not victims but rather are accusers. However, the throwing around of numbers, estimates and guesses about this area of crime is nothing more than entertainment. Devilishly difficult to pin down the actual activity.

  4. “Is it time for the creation of a lesser offence, ungallant behaviour leading to remorse and distress?”

    Only if there’s a mirror offence of ‘being a complete bitch’.
