Seeing things like these make me want to be a police officer even more. Because we need good cops to compensate for all of the sexist, chauvinistic cops out there who tell girls and women that it was their “our fault” that they got raped. Stories like these infuriate me! I want to be a detective in the child abuse and sexual assault unit so I can help survivors, not tell them “it was all your fault!”
