A major review of how the police handle rape cases has been shelved amid efforts by the government to save money, it was disclosed today.

Nothing to add, nothing to say...apart from it's a shame that women aren't taken seriously.

I heard this on the news. Really disgusting. Proof that the authorities really don't give a shit if women are raped.

Oh God. Yet another example of how this government's planned cuts are going to hit women hardest. Thanks for the link.

From the guardian link and the other papers said this too:

"He said some forces were already reviewing rape investigations in the expectation of funding shortfalls."

I guess that means that they're going to decide not to bother in anything except the cases where a conviction is easier?
