Rape accusations traumatizing former suspect says

She needs help my ass.  What she needs is to be prosecuted for her false allegations, and I think a nice L O N G sentence of community service, working with R E A L rape victimes, is what she needs.

Authorities have not released the accuser’s name.

“I believe that it is a question of potential safety for her, and the investigation is ongoing,” Rice said.

It is against the law to report a crime when none occurred, Rice said. Authorities gave no indication whether the woman may face charges.

“Her actions and her demeanor depict a very troubled young woman in need of much help,” Rice said.

    This is disgusting, but happens all too often. I saw lots of it in the Army. I agree that she needs to be charged and definitely should work with real rape victims.

    The shame of it all it that when actual rape victims tell their story, they will be looked upon with a skeptical eye. Certainly, rapists should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, but those who make up rape stories should be prosecuted as well. The potential of ruining someone’s life over a lie is tremendous.

    Max, I think there are even bigger issues than that. I’ve been waiting to see more information about the accuser… I hate to say it out loud much less in print but I was hoping against hope, for the sake of my girls and every brown skinned little girl, that she was a white woman. A few years ago I read some disturbing statistics about how much more likely minority women, but particularly black and mixed race women, are to be sexually assaulted than white women, how much less likely they are to report the crime, and how much less likely their they are to have their reports taken seriously by police and rape crisis centers. I’m afraid that the publicity and media sensationalism this situation has created will only reinforce the stereotypes and prejudices that drive those statistics.
