Here is an example of the injustice of feminism at work in the UK.
A national police policy, backed by the National College of Policing, says rape accusers should always be “believed”, echoing the language of far-left radical feminists who believe we all live in a “rape culture”. [Breitbart London]
Because the far-left radical feminist doctrines have been adopted by the police and applied to policing in the UK, gross miscarriages of justice have resulted. Now, given the manifest injustices that have come to light, the National Police Chiefs Council has called for this feminist horror to be rescinded and the national police policy in the UK to be changed accordingly.
Police should reconsider their policy of always automatically believing rape accusers says Sara Thornton, the head of the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC). The former Chief Constable of Thames Valley also slammed the practice of instantly regarding complainants as “victims” when no facts have been established and nothing had been proven, The Times reports.
Critics say police have gone too far, and the policy abandons the core justice principle of ‘innocent until proven guilty’. Ms. Thornton’s comments come after two rape cases – that of accusers Isaac Itiary, 25, and Liam Allan, 22 – collapsed in quick succession, with one young man being kept on bail for two years and the other spending time in jail.
In both instances, the police had failed to disclose text message evidence proving the young men were innocent. One woman had routinely lied about her age and the other admitted to enjoying her relations with the young student she accused. Both men have had their identity made public and were dragged through the press, whilst their accusers remained protected by anonymity rules.
The ancient Mosaic criminal code had a way of dealing with false accusers. When it had been established that an accuser had lied and falsely accused another, he or she should be sentenced with the penalty that would have been given to the (falsely) accused, if convicted.
If a malicious witness arises to accuse a person of wrongdoing, then both parties to the dispute shall appear before the Lord, before the priests and the judges who are in office in those days. The judges shall enquire diligently, and if the witness is a false witness and has accused his brother falsely, then you shall do to him as he had meant to do to his brother. [Deuteronomy 19:15-21]
For the radical feminists, however, false accusations are no problem because the entire culture represents the perpetual rape of women. So have at it and go for it. But only if justice is to have no meaning whatsoever.
The Biblical standard of justice in these matters which has informed Western law for centuries is illustrated by a retired High Court judge, as follows:
Sir Richard Henriques, a retired High Court judge who examined the Metropolitan Police’s conduct during the Operation Midland investigation into an alleged paedophile ring, said instruction to “believe a victim’s account” should be scrapped, and detectives should rather approach all allegations objectively, impartially, and with an open mind. He also warned that the ‘always believe victims’ policy undermined the principle of innocent until proven guilty.
But, now things are different. There is a new sheriff in town and justice has become a wax nose, to be twisted in favour of the claimed victim.
A spokesman for the College of Policing said: “It is vital that the public have trust and confidence in police investigations and we know, both from past investigations and extensive research, that one of the main reasons victims do not report abuse is a fear of not being believed.”
Now that statement from the College of Policing is in itself damnable. The public need to have confidence in police investigations. OK. Got that. But victims (whether true or false witnesses) need to be believed, according to the College of Policing, in order to have confidence in police investigations. Would someone please explain how the police believing lies as a matter of policy increases confidence in the police.
Welcome to the duplicitous, make-believe world of radical feminism.
