Bernie Sanders said:
Rape and assault is rape and assault. Whether it takes place on campus or on a dark street. And if a student rapes a fellow student, that has got to be understood to be a very serious crime. It has got to get outside of the school and have a police investigation. And that has to take place. Too many schools are seeing this as 'well it’s a student issue, let’s deal with it.' I disagree with that. It is a crime and it has to be treated as a serious crime. And you are seeing now the real horror of many women who have been assaulted or raped, sitting in a classroom alongside somebody who raped them. Rape is a very, very serious crime and it has to be prosecuted. It has to be dealt with.Liberals are up in arms about this, which would be a cause for alarm for him if liberals had another candidate this year.
The Huffington Post said:
Advocates, higher education officials and sexual assault survivor-activists have routinely opposed bills proposing to send all cases to police, citing a distrust in the criminal justice system and data showing that prosecutors rarely bring charges in campus rape cases. Fewer than 10 percent of rape cases reported to police result in criminal charges against an accused perpetrator, according to one 2012 study.We know why liberals do not want cops investigating accusation of rape, because most of them are false.
How do I "know" this?
The Duke lacrosse case.
Plus numerous other times women perjured and got away with it. Seldom are cops allowed to investigate because that may lead to perjury charges.
But you must understand, feminists do not care if women are raped. Look at the New Year's Eve rapes of thousands of women because they are white Christians by hordes of Muslim men. The attackss were coordinated and aimed at striking fear in Europeans. It is 700 AD again.
Nary a peep from any American liberals about that real Culture of Rape. It does not push their anti-American, anti-Western agenda.
