 That’s pretty fucking sad.


The ultimate statistic may very well be that 15 of 16 walk free. It could be lower, or more likely I’m guessing, it could also be higher. Too many rapists certainly go free. But this flow chart relies on faulty reasoning. It assumes that everyone who is arrested is guilty, which is false. Spend some time on The Innocent Project website, and you’ll see that not even everyone who spends a substantial amount of time in prison is guilty. There are much better ways to spread awareness/enact change regarding the need for better prevention of victimization and help for victims than throwing around data arrived at by blatantly erred algorithms and assumptions. It undermines our credibility.
