Dear Kini,A low number of recorded sexual assaults may seem like a positive indicator. But when Human Rights Watch researcher Sara Darehshori realized just how low the numbers were in Washington, DC, she saw a red flag and went to work.
Sara suspected that to keep the number of unsolved cases low, police were not reporting assaults. When she looked closer she discovered a systematic mishandling of sexual assault cases, and a police culture of appalling negligence. Her tireless efforts uncovered shocking information.
- Police protocol: officers made on-the-fly decisions not to investigate cases or even report them if they deemed it a tough case to prosecute.
- Incredibly, many cases were misclassified as non-criminal offenses or non-sex offenses, leaving perpetrators free to roam the streets without being arrested.
