The police seem to be unwilling to investigate allegations of rape. Why?

It seems that the police are still not taking rape seriously as a crime. Either they don't believe the victim, or they just think it would be too difficult to prove - but why are they letting (mainly) women down like this?

RAPE is difficult to prove if it is date rape. The police want succesful prosecutions

Because it usually boils down to his word agaisnt hers and if the women has lets say a questionable past or was drunk she wont be belived by the jury
Quite simply

It dosnt matter how much we thank it shouldnt happen it dose espically if the people on the jury are women
