Depressing article really but what gets me is that they could watch a video of a woman being raped and then say well it was probably just rough sex. What are those police officers doing to their partners?

Also why was a male police officer ever coming to take the story of a rape victim in the first place?

That's awful. I fear it's quite common for women to be dismissed in this way by the police.

I do not understand how there can be video evidence of a rape and it not proceed to court as a minimum. CPS are acting as judge and jury for the victims in refusing to bring these cases.

Good news on the law change progressing though.

So vile. No wonder women don't want to report rapes, actual video evidence and still this.

We still have such a mountain to climb.
