How are women meant to feel confident when this police commissioner victim blames us all for not having and encyclopedic knowledge of the law. According to him Sarah should have known she couldn't be arrested apparently!
The fact he even thought this was ok to say speaks volumes about attitudes to women
Like the comment at the end
““Why don’t you first talk about the need to vet police candidates better, weed out the bad ones and the ones who turn a blind eye, change the culture within the force?”.
His remarks wouldn’t have been so bad of he’d said “everyone” instead of just women. Yes people are aware abd more cautious since this but only because trust in the Police has been eroded by the kidnap. They do need to do something so people feel more confident about Police.
