Explaining a lack of arrests in one set of rape cases, NYPD Captain Pete Rose explains that it’s because the victims decide not to press charges, or give up on cooperating with the cops. But the uptick in rape cases is not a big deal: “It’s not a trend that we’re too worried about because out of 13 [sex attacks], only two were true stranger rapes .. If there’s a true stranger rape, a random guy picks up a stranger off the street, those are the troubling ones. That person has, like, no moral standards.” In contrast, the ones without arrests are those where it was just a coworker raping the woman, or a casual hookup — you know, rapists who have some ethical standards.
I can see why victims might recoil from working with the police if that’s the attitude.
