Policemag.com has story about a woman who claimed a New Mexico police officer sexually assaulted her when he arrested her for a DUI. Fortunately for the officer he was wearing a lapel cam and the video exonerated him. Still, you can hear the concern in his voice when life ruining charges were made against him. This is serious business, as the president of the Albuquerque Police Department union explained:
The desire to frame officers for wrongdoing is a growing issue facing officers every day. We believe that the public should be held accountable for filing false reports against police officers. These incidents can be very damaging to an officer’s career, so we hope that this individual and others face appropriate consequences for their malicious actions.
The Blaze followed up on the same story and learned that charges won’t be filed because a false accuser of sexual assault isn’t fundamentally different than a real victim:
…despite the apparent falsehood of her sexual assault claim, police did not want to set a precedent that could discourage other potential victims of sexual assault from coming forward.
Taken at face value this suggests that women can’t tell the difference between making a false claim and making a real one. But if women can’t tell the difference, how could we ever take any claim by women seriously? This only makes sense when you consider what feminists are already telling us; they don’t just want to stop real cases of rape and sexual assault, they want to create a culture where men are afraid of women. For feminists rape isn’t about (forced) sex, it is about power.
