Re: Ched Evans (Convicted Rapist) trains with Sheffield Unit

Out of every 100 rapes, 40 get reported to the police, only 3 end up spending a day in prison.
Can't just throw numbers like that around and especially without posting a source. I could say there are more men raped in the US than women thanks to the rape culture of the prison system but it would be arguable. So we need a source for this.

If she woke up the next day and regretted it, wouldn't she just want to forget it?
In a word, no.
Expand. Yes she would, if she regretted it, wouldn't she not want others to find out?

anecdotal evidence here mate. I'm not saying it doesn't happen but if you're gonna need better evidence than that.

So you're saying nobody has ever, ever got drunk and acted a knob/had sex and then claimed they were spiked because they are embarrassed? I'm not talking about her specifically, but just because she took action, that doesn't prove anything.

That's in America.
"100,000 assaults"

That can mean anything from an arse pinch to a rape at knife point.
"Estimated"
Those numbers are estimates again, though I think that one is more accurate with the 1 in 16 thing (there is a bullshit American survey that gets quoted all the time claiming 1 in 4).

Well as you don't seem to believe that any of those stats are real, go and find me stats you believe.

If you did not believe your drink was spiked, you wouldn't go all the way to the police esp if none of your mates were there. Police just need to take a blood test. You could easily say your drink was spiked but not go to the police till later and use the excuse out of my system, going to the police next day shows belief. Who would she be hiding her embarrassment from?

It's hard to quantify because of the nature of the crime. They all clearly stated they were estimates as well.

As for that other bit I'll respond later busy atm and going out in a sec.

It's well known by criminal lawyers in this country that juries tend not to believe rape victims. So when you get a conviction you're fairly safe that it's a good one.

Someone please tell me how this worked out well for the victim if youre playing the "she wanted to be famous and get money off a footballer" card

Shes lot her identity, was forced out of town and slagged off from all over the world purely because of the occupation of her attacker

According to the media, Maltese side Hibernians want to offer Evans a contract, but just read that as he's a convicted sex offender with obligations to have regular face to face meetings with probation officers and this effectively rules him out of working abroad.

I had a thought today, would people be surprised if Evans gets door after door shut in his face and ends up committing suicide? I wouldn't be.

In the eyes of the law, he's served his time, i think he should be allowed to move to Malta and have a second attempt at an honest and decent life.

In the eyes of the law he must attend these meetings whilst released on license. In 2 years time he can move to Malta.

Proposed move to Oldham has collapsed due to overwhelming (and at times disgusting) pressure from a variety of sources...

Good. The deal collapsing, not the threats obviously.

He needs to fornicate off, and concentrate on his appeal. If he wins it (which he won't), he's free to return to football.

Amazing how it took 83 days and 2 failed transfers for him to finally issue an "apology*" and call his supporters off harassing and abusing the victim and ruining her life further

*hardly an apology

If I was adamant I was innocent of a crime and was pushing, or had a date, for a retrial, the last thing I would want to do is issue an apology for committing that crime, as it would be a stark admission of guilt.

Right or wrong, that's why there has been no apology.

Obviously he shouldnt apologise before trial, but he shouldve immediately denouncex his supporters forcing the victim to move and change identity 5 times. He shoulve spoke out against that and its only because 2 clubs have pulled out of signing him that hes now done it. His PR team has had a mare

Agreed, I would probably not apologise for something that I believe I'm not guilty of, but I would call out those supporters instantly. It would also be a good PR stunt to be fair.
