Police in the UK Failing Victims of Sexual Violence

They couldn’t even be bothered to do the minimum required paperwork in one case. Police officers discouraged child rape victim from reporting attack, investigation finds.

Two police officers called to reports of a 15-year-old girl being raped in a car park questioned the victim’s credibility and discouraged her from reporting the attack, an investigation has found.

She did proceed. The guy was arrested and sent to prison. No thanks to these 2. And the “punishment” they received will ensure that nothing changes. That punishment was written reprimands. Yeah, that will make them sit up and pay attention.

The case was revealed after the proportion of reported rapes prosecuted in England and Wales fell to just 1.5 per cent, sparking legal action against the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

More details at the story, including more personal accounts of how the justice system in the UK is broken.

And it’s the UK, so all the women have been disarmed for their own safety. Or something.

Florida Teachers Can Be Armed – Liberals Have Their Knickers in a Twist

Because guns are scary. Some Florida Teachers Can Now Carry Guns In The Classroom.

The law, an expansion of the state’s Guardian Program, was passed in response to the 2018 shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that left 17 people dead. The program initially allowed certain school employees or hired guards to carry weapons but was expanded by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis in May to include teachers who meet certain training standards if their school district approves. [My emphasis. Z-Deb.]

Guess how Miami-Dade, and Broward County schools are reacting.

And all the expected reactions are coming from all the usual suspects. The Sky Is Falling. Blood In The Streets. Whatever.

Hat tip to LCBren at The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, who notes…

The only way to deal with a bad guy with a gun..is a good guy with a gun.

Restraining Orders Are Useless – UK Edition Part 2

Because some people just don’t understand, “It’s over.” Woman bombards ex with calls and messages after four-week relationship ends.

A spurned lover plagued her ex with 45 texts, 62 mobile phone calls, 27 voicemails and 21 Facebook messages after their four-week romance ended.

Joanne Amy Brennan, 48, also called her former boyfriend Robert Rowledge 11 times on Facebook Messenger and sent messages to his family in a six day period.

And this isn’t the first time she’s been a pain in the ass. There were 5 separate restraining orders against her, for different people, all of which she violated in the past.

And even though they are talking about the Boston Magistrate’s Court, this is not a story from Massachusetts. Boston is a town in Lincolnshire on the east coast of England.

And people need to get a grip.

Restraining Orders Are Useless – UK Edition

And in the UK she is disarmed for her own protection. Or something. Man jailed after ripping girlfriend’s tooth out in horrifying attack.

Kurt Wright, 33, squeezed the tooth so hard that it broke off and the mum-of-three had to cough it back up after “half-swallowing it”

A restraining order was in place when he attacked her.

And the citizens of the UK are so completely disarmed that now they are talking about outlawing “pointy knives.” Because why should you ever need a weapon? He didn’t need one. In that place where Great Britain used to be…

The Elimination of a Gun Free Zone

Gun Free Zones don’t work to stop gun crime. Ohio is one of the states that recognize that, and the state leaves it up to the school districts to decide if they believe it too. Garaway Schools votes to arm staff members.

Citing the need for “additional protection for our students and staff,” the Garaway Board of Education passed a resolution to allow for armed staff at Garaway Schools at its meeting Monday night.

Garaway joins Newcomerstown, Indian Valley and Tusky Valley as Tuscarawas County schools that authorize armed staff members.

Progress.

89 Percent of Mass-shootings Happen in Gun-free Zones

Don’t expect this fact to enter the debate. Breaking down Mass Public Shooting data from 1998 though June 2019: Info on weapons used; gun-free zones; racial, age, and gender demographics.

With all the discussion about having another assault weapon ban, only 13% of mass public shootings are done with any type of rifle. Among the other findings, about 9 in 10 of the attacks are in gun-free zones

Because “Assault weapons” are only the first step.

What Happens When You Disarm a Population, and Then Cut Police Support?

You get lawlessness and the breakdown of order. And no, this isn’t about California. Winnipegger turns to confrontation as police response times grow for property crimes.

About a Canadian who found a man in his backyard. The intruder produced a knife and lunged. In Texas, or Florida, or a dozen other states, that guy would be dead. But Canada is to “civilized” (read that as “domesticated”) to allow its citizens (subjects?) to be armed in their own defense.

The reason that the guy was tired of waiting on police?

Winnipeg police have commented numerous times over the past several months that their resources are being stretched thin.

They are dealing with “The increasing number of bizarre and dangerous incidents due to people believed high on meth.” 911 response time to a property crime is now measured in days. Which means, of course, that property crime is also on the rise.

Now Winnipeg has long way to go before it becomes Baltimore, New Orleans or Chicago, but the trends are clearly going in the wrong direction.
