A “headstrong, cynical, blogging police officer” says that if she were raped other than by a complete stranger on the street, she probably would not bother to report it.
PC Ellie Bloggs a serving police officer in England, and author of pcbloggs.blogspot.com writes on Channel4’s blog that she’s worked as a specialist sexual offences officer and “in zero of the cases can I be sure that no rape happened”.
But “seasoned detectives and even supervising ranks goggle at me, stating that most rapes they have dealt with DIDN’T happen” she says. “Am I hopelessly naïve, or are they chauvinist ignoramuses?”.
