Crime figures out today show that the rate of convictions in rape cases in the UK has fallen from 6% to 5.6% - the lowest rate EVER. Key issues mentioned are:
1) "sceptical" prosecutors and police often did not believe victims
2) "some evidence of poor investigation and understanding of the law"
3) Defendants were far more likely in rape case to claim the victim consented to the alleged attack.
4) An overestimation of the scale of false allegations among some officials led to victims losing confidence in the system.
So basically girls if you're raped this weekend, don't bother going to the police. They won't believe you and they won't do anything about it.
