I think my biggest problem personally is the sneaking suspicion that if the victim had taken measures to implement self-defense against her abuser,
they would've sent her to jail for as long, possibly longer.
As someone who has been accused and acquitted, because the police could not be arsed to investigate correctly, or investigate at all in my case, i had
to prove my innocence (luckily i was able to do this) and not, as in the UK normally, they have to prove your guilt. Without my evidence to PROVE my
innocence, i would, most likely, be serving a prison sentence ........... thanks CPS.
Not everything is as it seems, how many people are locked up in error i often wonder.
ETA, never read the case in the OP, just blowing off as it still hurts, the stress and loss of property to pay legal costs, so many years down the
Deny Ignorance ....... cheers
