Police Apologise For Doing Their Job

The police the world over come in for criticism continually, and you don’t have to look further than YouTube or Bitchute to see them behaving badly or even atrociously, but mostly they do necessary and at times difficult work. While detecting crime is desirable, preventing it is even more so; one way to prevent crime is to give the public sensible advice. Recently, the police in Northern Ireland did just that. They were attacked for it, and now they have apologised. And this advice was…?

“Alcohol is the number one rape drug. How much have you taken already?”

That’s right, ladies, if you get plastered and walk home drunk, if you get into a car with a man you don’t know after you’ve been drinking, if you take unnecessary risks, you increase the chances of being raped, or worse. In other words, there are predators everywhere who are looking for easy prey. Don’t make that easy prey you.

The police and other agencies warn people about all manner of predators like telephone and on-line scammers. They advise people how to protect their homes when they are away, how to keep their kids safe…but when they advise women not to drink to excess, they are victim-blaming.

Not only that, this is a repeat offence. In February last year, they distributed leaflets with that message on a university campus, and now they have done it again. Shameful. Or is it?

Here are the wise words of a senior Irish police officer from 13 years ago.

“A lot of Garda and medical time is wasted assessing whether people have been raped as they claim may have happened. With young women one of the problems appears to be bravado when it comes to consuming large amounts of alcohol.”

He continued: “We have had cases where having received an allegation, we go back to a nightclub attended by the complainant and the accused and there is CCTV footage where you see the girl with the guy and they are all over each other. The next day she wakes up, doesn’t know what has happened or even who she was with.”

In other words, women who drink to excess are a danger to men as well. The effects of alcohol on the human body, inhibitions, and even memory, is no big secret. Women who drink to excess, perhaps in combination with taking recreational drugs, can have flashbacks days, months, years later, flashbacks that are inaccurate memories or even memories of entirely imaginary events. So no, the Northern Ireland police should not apologise for “victim-blaming”. By distributing these leaflets, they are performing a public service.

Stop assuming that the man are predators they are drunk like the women. Remember women love the attention of men and act sexually inviting to get it. I’ve know women that talk about hooking up with soldiers near military bases and then crawling out the bathroom window rather than facing them in the morning. They liked the sex but didn’t want a relationship. That narrative that women are always the prey needs to stop. And, having government impose politically naive values on men and women is itself a crime.

I agree with you, dcastlle, that it’s more complex than that. When sex, drugs, rock & roll and alcohol are involved, the result is not necessarily always one female victim and one male victimizer. When a man gets a woman drunk planning to take advantage of her and then does, I would call him a victimizer, especially in cases where the woman is young, naive and inexperienced. But men can also end up as victims. I recall reading about a case where two people of mature age hooked up in a bar, drank all evening and ended up in a… Read more »

A woman “woman suddenly snapped out of her drunken stupor’ yea right. In war zones women both military and contractors are told not to travel alone especially after dark. This makes some women angry that they cannot do everything that men do. Inevitably one of these women gets assaulted. A women in uniform then gets military discipline in addition to being assaulted. The contractor gets fired in addition to being assaulted. None of these women are intoxicated just stupid for believing in this false equality “right.” These mythical “rights” women think they have do no good at all.
