A Story of Rape

The detectives elevated “minor inconsistencies” — common among victims — into discrepancies, while ignoring strong evidence the crime had occurred.

This is a story of what happens when police officers start a case by doubting the victim and how everything goes wrong after that. If you read anything before the new year read this. They accused her, pressured and bullied her, and charged her with making a false claim, only to later find their actions helped a serial rapist repeat his crime over and over again.

He had a photograph of himself raping the girl police charged.

    “He was probably drinking that night, alcohol makes you susceptible to fire.”
    “Why didn’t he stop, drop, and roll? He should have stopped, dropped, and rolled. He must have secretly wanted it.”

    In response to the comments some victims of rape hear, Tumblr users applied the same messages to a story about a man who died after he was set on fire by the woman he raped.
