Is rape not a crime in HRM?

Posted By on Wed, Jul 3, 2019 at 4:54 PM

Rape culture is, unfortunately, still prevalent in HRM thanks to the cops.
The HRP and RCMP spend more time giving out traffic tickets than they do investigating and prosecuting the men who rape women.
I should know:  I was a victim of date rape. I immediately repored the rape to the police, gave a formal videotaped statement including the name, address and phone of number of my rapist along with text messages where he confessed to raping me. The police, however, couldn't be bothered to go to his house to question him even though they assured me that they believed me. Then people wonder why the victim rarely reports being raped.
—Rape is a serious crime and should be punished
