"What Rape Culture?"

Okay I said I wasn't gonna post but then this comes across my fucking goddamn Facebook feed.

Local sheriff reacts to rape kit legislation

"I really believe the Legislature needs to take a strong look at allowing law enforcement to do their job and not try to dictate what we need to do.  I think they're trying to help, I really do," Bingham County Sheriff Craig Rowland said. "They need to let us decide if we're going to send the kit and when we send the kits in. Because the majority of our rapes, not to say that we don't have rapes, we do, but the majority of our rapes that are called in, are actually consensual sex."

Hahahahahahaha reminder that this is how most police officers and sheriffs think. They still think that women lie about consensual sex because they regretted it or something when study after study has found that the fast majority of rape accusations are fucking true. Not only are they extremely wrong, they're using their wrongness to speak out against testing all rape kits. This guy actually thinks that the cops should be in charge of deciding which kits get tested.

I need another reaction gif.

Idaho's not that far away, that's all I'm saying.

Just the fact that you could be against something that should be so universally supported as testing all rape kits. Of course, if all of his shit county's rape kits were tested, he'd have to deal with how fucking wrong he is about everything.
