Rape Victims Pressured by Police to Drop Accusations

RAPE VICTIMS PRESSURED BY POLICE TO DROP ACCUSATIONS – A number of rape victims have come forward to complain that they were pressured by police officers to drop rape charges and admit these acts were ‘consensual sex’.

A number of rape victims have come forward to complain that they were pressured by police officers to drop rape charges and admit these acts were ‘consensual sex’.

The detectives, from the Scotland Yard Special Rape Unit are believed to have instigated these instances in order to meet the Governments National Crime Rate on Solving Crime.

In one particular case a woman was persuaded to drop charges against 63 year old Jean Say who later went on to murder his two children.

The report by the Independent Police Complaints Commission has damned the action of the Special Rape Unit in failing to properly investigate and prosecute dangerous criminals, this being the ‘first principle’ of Scotland Yard’s rules of officer conduct.

“The failings were ‘deeply disturbing’, and accused officers of losing sight of their role.”  Deborah Glass, deputy chairman of the IPCC

While some are blaming the Police Force for the failings, others are pointing at the Government for insisting that annual crime rate resolution targets are met, often resulting in the Police struggling to meet these target and therefore finding ways to circumnavigate them in order to comply; which is going to result in the Police being unable to investigate crime effectively.

There is no doubt that what Scotland Yard, and some of its detectives, have done is wrong and that these individuals should be prosecuted, it might be interesting to see how many Minister’s end up in the Dock for forcing Scotland Yard to meet such high performance targets.

This is a very fine line as we do need to ensure our Police Force works for us, but if this type of behaviour is the result of pressure from the Government is it not time to reassess how we monitor the performance of our Police Force?

This is a very fine line – we do need to ensure our Police Force works for us, but if this type of behaviour is the result of pressure from the Government is it not time to reassess how we monitor the performance of our Police Force?

This approach, as many have voiced, is that officers now feel that the pressure of meeting targets is now more important that protecting the public and deterring and detecting crime.

Scotland Yard has announced that some 19 Police Officers across London have been disciplined, including some that have been dismissed.

All I can say is that I am glad I am not a police officer.  Their job appears to be a thankless task often resulting in ridicule by the public and yet nobody ever steps back to look upon the pressure that Government puts upon them nor how Government ties the hands of law enforcement through the ever changing and politically correct Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE).
