Faith in the system

I realise this is a real powder-keg of a topic, but I felt quite shocked upon reading the article this evening. Should the awful experience of some cases, and some victims, blur the view of others so completely? I realise to that as a male, and a police officer, I cannot really view this topic objectively. However, god forbid should such a terrifying and humiliating experience ever happen to said author in the future, I wonder if she really would reconsider her position? I find her views in the final paragraph deeply disturbing indeed.

I totally agree with you - very disturbing...

Whilst I am all for seeing difficult topics such as this addressed in a wider arena, I fail to see how that particular article is anything but sensationalist b*llox - gratutiously and dangerously in its lack of objectivity presenting what is obviously a singularly horrifying experience as the norm....how is that helpful in any way, shape or form?

*jumps off soapbox and goes to make her dinner*

I totally agree Northern Monkey, "...presenting what is obviously a singularly horrifying experience as the norm".

It's a difficult one, isn't it? But I must admit, the stats scare me.
