Women are reluctant to come forth because of the shame of public exposure and the grueling court process which involves lines of questioning that are so manipulative as to make the victim feel as though she is the offender! Not to mention they publicly discuss her sexual history in order to shame her further. I’m thinking that this is why so many women don’t come forth.
In regards to Cassius's recent "findings" I would like to quote what journalist Di-ck Haws wrote about the variations of false rape reports - some very high and some very low. He also cited Cassius's "backer"
Di-ck Haws says:
"If you look to academe for such studies about false reports, you'll come across the UNUSUALLY high percentage found by the Purdue University sociologist Eugene J. Kanin, now retired. In an examination of rape reports from 1978 to 1987 in an unnamed midwestern city of 70,000, he found that of the 109 rapes reported to the police, 45, or 41 percent, were subsequently classified as false".
Cassius's supporter admits:
"Kanin of Purdue warned against reading too much into his examination of the small midwestern city: "Certainly our intent is not to suggest that the 41 percent incidence found here be extrapolated to other populations, particularly in light of our IGNORANCE regarding the structural variables."
When seeking out false rape statistics, the reporter suggests:
"The conclusion is clear. Don't rely on one source. Talk to the local sexual assault counselors, talk to the local police, talk to the FBI, talk to the academics. Try to make some sense out of all the different numbers. And be careful".
So Cassius, what was your REAL agenda when posting your pseudo "facts"??
Alexandra says: "she shouldnt be afraid to report it if she hasn't done anything wrong" You know what Alexandra, not only is your reasoning shallow, it sounds chillingly inhumane!
"Same for you Rain, please tell us why you want to let women who make false accusations walk no matter if it is 3 40 or 95%" ?
Pardon liar Cassius?? Tell me where I advocated THAT! Back it up! You can't Cassius. Why do you lie so much? Especailly when EVERYBODY can see that you do. Grow up.
Cassius, READ MY POST. Your source admitted he was IGNORANT and not to read too much into his examination!
You could have easily asked your "question" without posting your misleading statistics! This is why you you come across looking as though you have an...I don't know..AGENDA?! Get it?
