It is barely a crime in the UK. If you gauge by how often it is prosecuted. Britain’s most dangerous rapist Joseph McCann who went on a sickening cocaine-fuelled rampage after being wrongly released from jail TWICE and was found by police in a tree is guilty of sex attacks on 11 victims including boy, 11, and woman, 71.
In this case, the bit of proof that British cops don’t give a damn about rape:
He’d been twice released from jail, the second time without parole board hearing
The Mail is “charitable,” and says that the cops were not evil, just stupid. They can be both.
When the cops initiated the high speed chase, they had interrupted his attack on two 14-year-olds.
He will probably face a “life sentence.” But in the United Kingdom, “Life” is not life. Not usually. So while the judge can decide he will die in prison, that doesn’t usually happen, and he will likely be eligible for parole eventually. (Keeping dangerous criminals off the street is “uncivilized,” or something.)
