Wasting police time

False accusations of rape are something that the Feministas  will insist are so rare as to be of no consequence  but as I have explored at this blog previously it is a serious matter and something that can not be ignored for ideological reasons.  Now it turns out that a supposedly nasty rape reported in Sydney  was in fact entirely fictitious and that only after an exhaustive and expensive investigation by the police  has the claim been exposed as a total fabrication:

The only upside here is that no poor sod has been dragged in to be interrogated and accused of a crime that he did not commit, however the amount of time and resources that have been expended by the police would have been quite considerable, not to mention the fear an loathing felt by women in western Sydney at the thought of a gang of men out there targeting  lone  women at night should not be under estimated…

So what sort of consequences should this stupid, stupid girl face for her fabricated claims?

A bill for the cost of the wasted  police time perhaps?

A community corrections order?

A stint in one of Her Majesty’s fine hotels?

Being named and shamed?

Sadly I tend to think that she will get off Scott free and still considered a “victim” rather than as a perp

Tis the way of the world Comrades

    Congratulations, you’ve found one example of someone wasting police’s time about a false rape accusation in which they did not even blame a specific person. Your response is to vilify a 17 year old girl… who is in a “fragile state.” Instead of a stint in a corrections facility did you stop to think maybe she needs counseling so that she won’t lie about things like this in the future? I’ve found it’s always better to help work out underlying issues rather than ignoring and punishing problems that stem from them.

    It seems that Sydney has a far better handle on handling rape cases than the United States, as I don’t ever think I’ve met someone who reported their case who was even granted time with a “specialist rape victim counselor.” Maybe the United States should take a page from their book.

    Also, I’m confused about your paragraph immediately following the quote. It seems that you think women would only worry about a potential gang rape if the claim was true. However, women should be worried about that no matter what. Gang rapes and abductions can happen anywhere, and because of that fact women have to be constantly vigilant whilst walking alone.

    Firstly let me give you a warm welcome to my blog.

    Congratulations, you’ve found one example of someone wasting police’s time about a false rape accusation in which they did not even blame a specific person. Your response is to vilify a 17 year old girl… who is in a “fragile state.”

    How can you suggest that I am wrong to feel anything but disdain for the woman who made the false accusation in this case? Like you I hold anyone who commits rape to be utterly contemptible and deserving of the most severe legal sanction and I find it equally contemptible when someone is falsely accused of the same crime.

    Instead of a stint in a corrections facility did you stop to think maybe she needs counseling so that she won’t lie about things like this in the future? I’ve found it’s always better to help work out underlying issues rather than ignoring and punishing problems that stem from them.

    Sorry but I am not a big fan of the talking cure as an answer to what is a criminal act.

    We are not perfect in Australia but we do take complaints of rape very seriously and treat complainants with respect and compassion.

    Also, I’m confused about your paragraph immediately following the quote. It seems that you think women would only worry about a potential gang rape if the claim was true.

    In the Australian context such crimes are fortunately rare compared to the United States as are most other types of violent crime.

    However, women should be worried about that no matter what. Gang rapes and abductions can happen anywhere, and because of that fact women have to be constantly vigilant whilst walking alone.

    I agree about the need for vigilance, however there is nothing to be gained from fostering paranoia.

    finally I checked out your link and to be honest Statistics can be made to argue any case. Did you my any chance check out the post in my archive that I linked to in my opening paragraph? There you will find examples where women who have been convicted of making false accusations in the UK. Now even if we take the statistics in your citation at face value that does not lessen the miscarriage of justice to an innocent man falsely convicted of rape. I just don’t think it is right to cite the difficulty in getting a conviction in rape case as a reason to ignore the problem of false accusations.

    Well said, Iain, and well attended to, considering that you are usually toe up by this time of the evening/morning.

    I read the woman’s blog and frankly was scared to offer an opinion, especially as she has blocked all negative opinions from publication.

    Then again, it is a very serious subject.

    Kudos for going into battle with this rabid feminist.
