Hofstra false rape cases: Poor reasons for not charging the false accuser

The "experts" have chimed in on the so-called difficulties with charging the Hofstra false accuser. Jim Cohen, a criminal law professor at Fordham University said: "There should be some sanction for the consequences she caused. On the other hand, if they charge this woman, then someone similarly situated in the future might decide to stick with her story rather than coming clean."

Now, think about what you just said, Jim. What incentive would any would-be false accuser have not to lie if we refuse to charge false accusers because future false accusers might stick with their story? See? There's never an incentive to stop -- because there's no punishment. And, yes, I understand that we rely heavily on recantations to expose false rape claims, and that's why I've proposed a sliding scale to provide for lesser penalties for recantations that occur early on and before any any innocent man or boy has been charged.

And, of course, no article on false rape would be complete without quoting someone from the sexual grievance industry, who typically have zero concern for the falsely accused: "Lois Schwaeber, director of legal services for the Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, said cases where people make false reports of rape hurt all legitimate rape victims seeking justice. But she said prosecuting someone who has made a false report will discourage real rape victims from coming forward as well."

Typical gynocentric bullshit. There is a special place in the darkest corner of hell for people who think like Lois Schwaeber. In her twisted, misandric world, the "real" victims of false rape claims are not the innocent men and boys who are falsely accused. The "real" victims are the future, unknown, hypothetical, phantom, possible, could-be, even unborn rape victims who might be, possibly will be, may be dissuaded by such lies from coming forward to report rape.

And worse, she says we must not charge false rape accusers because it "will" discourage real rape victims.

Thank you, Ms. Schwaeber. You've reminded everyone why we need this blog. According to you, we must ignore a crime that has scarred four innocent lives in the name of fighting another crime.

Since when did we start combating serious criminality by ignoring other serious criminality?

Since when did it become appropriate to elevate the victimization of one group of citizens over that of another?

Why, oh, why, dear women of America, do you allow your sons to be treated as collateral damage in the war on rape?

It is this vile indifference to an entire class of citizens that prompted the need for this blog. The crime of making a false rape report has wrongly become gender-politicized and so embroiled in the radical feminist sexual assault milieu that it has been improperly removed from the public discourse about rape. By any measure, denigrating the experience of the falsely accused by treating their victimization with crass indifference and as unworthy of our discussion, much less our protection, is not merely dishonest but morally grotesque.
