Misrepresenting Statistics

This graphic popped up in my Twitter feed a while back.  The “shock and grab” headline really annoyed me.  It makes it sound like all these rapes are committed and nothing gets done about it because, I don’t know, reasons. 

I look at these numbers and what goes through my mind is that unless and until these rapes are convictions, they are alleged.  Period. 

Right out of the gate, 690 aren’t even reported, apparently, so obviously even the alleged victims didn’t make the effort to report the incidents so how can you even claim these rapes occurred?  Hearsay?  If that’s all it takes, then Jeff Bezos owes me about 50B.  Because I said so, that’s why.  What?  That’s all “survivors” need, right?  This whole “thousand” number looks made up.  No reports, no evidence, nothing. 

Of the 310 that are reported, 57 of those lead to arrest.  So, that means the cops have investigated, and found 253 lacking enough evidence to arrest.  There simply wasn’t enough there to facilitate an arrest, including identifying information about the alleged perpetrator.  Such a case occurred in my complex just last year.  But at least they were reported so if more evidence turns up in the future, there is a greater chance of a trial.

Of those 57, prosecutors decided not prosecute 46 of them.  This is generally because they, or a grand jury, didn’t feel there was enough evidence to convict. 

Of the 11 remaining that went to trial, 6 were convicted and incarcerated. 

Do you know what this means?  It means that over half of all rape trials lead to incarcerations.  MORE THAN HALF.  If your rape case goes to trial, you have better than a 50/50 chance of winning! 

Do unreported rapes happen?  Of course they do.  But you can’t just go in and destroy someone’s life without evidence.  That makes you no better than the alleged rapist you claim to be against.  Better a guilty man go free than an innocent man get convicted, is how our justice system was supposed to work. 

It’s also true that people lie.  Many even lie about being raped.

If you’ve been raped, you need to report it.  It is absolutely true there will be no future conviction of your perpetrator at all if you don’t.
