3) Case dropped/dismissed.

1) Women report it.
2) There's physical evidence (very few cases). She's STILL rung through the ringer about her reputation. I've heard statistics that a lot of women even drop the case themselves around this time.
3) Less or equal jail time than nonviolent offenders.
You didn't acknowledge that the guy's reputation get's hella fucked too. But looking at your scenarios, isn't that what's supposed to happen? What I mean is, when someone reports something and there isn't any evidence, shouldn't it get dropped? If I go to the police and say you destroyed my car and they ask if I have any evidence and I say I have absolutely none, then what sense would it make to go arrest you? So if you go to the police and say I raped you, and there is no evidence, why is it reasonable that they arrest me? Arresting someone for ANY crime based almost solely on a victim's word makes zero sense. You have to understand that, right?

I think that's a slippery slope you don't want to go down. A lot of times there isn't evidence but it doesn't mean a crime still hasn't taken place and those assholes should and need to be charged and punished. Same for molestation, should we stop believing children too?

I'm not saying lack of evidence means a crime didn't occur, but with no evidence, why do you believe someone should be charged and punished? That means that right now, if I got mad at you for whatever reason and told the cops you raped me, you would be okay with getting charged and going to jail? Just because I said so? Of course you wouldn't. You would say that I was full of shit and you'd want the police to make me provide proof, otherwise they should drop the case. You know why? Because you didn't rape me and I should not have the power to destroy your life by making a baseless claim.

One of my best friends was with a girl that was sort of unstable, they stopped seeing each other and months later they randomly ran into each other and ended up hooking up that night. She decided she wanted him back, so she faked a pregnancy test. He decided that he was going to take responsibility for his actions and he got back together with her and was going to help raise the child. After like 5 months or something her body hadn't changed at all and she wasn't showing, we all got increasingly more suspicious and then the truth was finally out and he got the fuck out of there. That "type of girl" who would do something like that could easily be able to falsely accuse him of rape (because she's unstable and doesn't understand the impact her actions can have on other people) to get back at him. You think it's fair for my friend to get charged and put in jail based on nothing but her word?

Like, I understand that rape is a horrible thing. I know it first fucking hand. I know how much you must wish that all rapists get what they deserve, but it's just such a tricky situation when it comes to charging and punishing. Please tell me you don't think that jailing and absolutely destroying the lives of some guys via punishment based on the victim's word is a "necessary sacrifice" so that the real rapists get jailed too.

I think it's a slippery slope that I don't want to go down and should be viewed as a case by case basis. kwim? I don't think you shouldn't not go by the victim's word though.

You should probably go by the evidence after a thorough police investigation, don't you think?

Okay, so I go to the police right now and tell them you raped me. You think it's fair that they go and arrest you/jail time? Even when you prove that you didn't, which is stupid that you have to prove you didn't, your reputation is ruined. People will think you're a rapist.
