Not a Good Victim

Ginmar posts on a girl in Beaverton who had the temerity to report a rape:
After a day-and-a-half trial, Municipal Judge Peter A. Ackerman on Friday convicted the woman of filing a false police report, a class-C misdemeanor. Ackerman explained his decision, saying there were many inconsistencies in the stories of the four, but that he found the young men to be more credible. He also said he relied on the testimony of a Beaverton police detective and the woman's friends who said she did not act traumatized in the days following the incident.

What inconsistencies? Trauma makes people remember things strangely. It’s a little known fact that someone who’s survived a ghastly experience may not remember everything about it till days later, when their brain starts to recover. Someone who’s lying, of course, will have inconsistencies in their story because they want to avoid getting arrested for it.

The judge found the young men to be more credible. Why?

What police detective? Did this guy have any experience as a sex crimes investigator? Cops are just as likely---and might be more likely---to be sexist as is the general population.

And of course we all know that if a woman doesn’t act traumatized and horrified it’s not because she’s in denial or trying to forget it, it’s because she’s a lying whore who’s trying to put innocent guys in jail. ...
