Justice Depraved

Shakespeare’s Sister has posted a story that must be read to be believed.

A 17-year-old girl went to police at the urging of her friends after she was allegedly gang-raped by three men, including her boyfriend. The men testified that the act was consensual. After reviewing all the information and statements, prosecutors decided they didn’t think they could prove a rape allegation, and so declined to prosecute the case.

Instead, they prosecuted the victim for filing a false police report. Yesterday, she was found guilty.

Sometimes there are days when you just shake your head and wonder what the fuck is going on around here.
