Should Men Be Cops?


Sunday, August 5, 2012 -

In a recent statement made on Facebook and on its web site The RINJ Foundation is asking the question, "Should Men Be Cops?" following a recent spate of victim blaming episodes around the world which coincidentally followed dozens of criminal charges being brought against cops for rape. 

According to the RINJ statement, "The recent conduct by police forces around the world suggests that the patriarchal thought process is incompetent for solving crimes against the person when a woman is the victim. It isn't working. Cops are raping women. Cops are ignoring the rape of women. Cops are blaming women for their rape. This isn't an isolated problem it is an epidemic."

"Among the the more notable charges brought against cops are two cases in New York City while hundreds of cases around the world get little attention. This is a very much under-reported subject. 

You can participate in the debate on our Facebook Page.

The statement notes that "Some women are saying, "Men must not be cops. That now must be a woman's job".

"Cops are raping women using guns and knives.

"Other cops appear to cooperate in a campaign of victim blaming.

"Toronto cops say don't dress "slutty" as Brit coppers say don't drink if you don't want to be raped. Do not trust a male cop. 

"The RINJ Foundation  urges all women to consider police services as a career."


RINJ is an organization that monitors media content; educates social media and other media outlets about the perils of misogyny and rape culture; monitors and reports international law news; monitors and reports on global court proceedings related to sexual assault; promotes a more learned and open discussion of the issues of sexual assault; promotes education for the safety of the person; and seeks a higher adherence to safe community standards. RINJ seeks stiffer penalties for rapists; promotes the creation of a better criminal justice system; and seeks to advance a RAPE-averse social conscience.

RINJ seeks removal of media content condoning sexual assault and rape. Allowing this content on social networking sites and in other media further normalises a rape culture and the high instance of sexual violence in global society.
