“When Anna said she was raped by two on-duty cops, she thought it would be a simple case. She had no idea she lived in one of 35 states where officers can claim a detainee consented.“
One of 35..
What the entire fuck????
When we talk about unequal power and inability to give meaningful consent there is probably not a better example than when one person is literally imprisoned and the other is one of the people responsible for the imprisonment. Cops should definitely not be allowed to ‘have sex’ with people in their custody. The room for coercion and outright abuse is way too high.
