Part 2 of The Problem With Men Podcast ‘Falsely Accused’

Filed under: Sex Abuse / CYF — JohnPotter @ 8:39 pm Thu 7th July 2022

Part 2 of the Problem with Men podcast is now available. Part 1 is available on the same link. In these two episodes, Liam Allan gives a detailed account of his experience of being falsely accused and charged with rape.

The interviewer also discusses the legal and social issues with barrister Matthew Scott, and academics Dr Dennis Eady (Cardiff Innocence Project) and Dr Ros Burnett (University of Oxford Centre for Criminology).

On his twitter account, Chris Dodd (@Problemwith_men), the interviewer and one of the producers, says:

‘I can’t express how proud we are of our two episodes on being #FalselyAccused – Liam’s experience is terrifying, and it’s shocking how #believeallwomen is influencing the police and justice system. Men no longer innocent until proven guilty.’

I’ve listened to several other Problem with Men podcasts, and they are all excellent. If podcasts are your thing I recommend subscribing.

  2. It is somewhat scary, the standards being used.
    They prosecute, on the balance of probabilities.
    And often, years after the event.

    One statistic we don’t get, is relationship accusations.
    After the relationship ends, the female complains.
    And statistics, of who ended the relationship.

    Are men more likely to be accused, if they ended the relationship.
    If custody is contested, are complaints more likely.
    How corrupted is the defence, if it’s years later.

    How can you prosecute on consent, if there wasn’t a no.
    If sex crimes, are prosecuted on the balance of probabilities.
    Large numbers, of innocent men are being prosecuted.

    If false complaints, are a minimum of 5%.
    Where is the 5% of cases, prosecuted for perjury.
    If balance of probabilities, is the standard.
    Every complaint, should also be prosecuted for perjury.

  3. I listened today, of a man being canceled.
    Due to old comments, about women.
    So what the hell, women can be derogatory about men as normal.
    I think I’ve got comments, where canceling is automatic.

    Back in the past, 10% of women were crazy.
    You couldn’t trust, a single thing they said.
    And it’s hard to tell the sane, from the insane.
    So the 90%, got also labeled the same.

    Calling people are dumb, is a human trait.
    And as 10% of people struggle, with intellectual things.
    It’s easy to find examples, and label the 90% the same.
    It’s not even gender specific with serfs, slaves and foreigners.

    I read of a women, who murdered her partner.
    Twice the police, gave the male the PSO.
    Not recognising the crazy, that they supported.
    Trapped with children, her violence killed him.

    Labelling of the 90%, is clearly wrong.
    But look at the harm, at pretending the 10% doesn’t still exist.
    A percentage of males, sexually offend.
    Yet no women is canceled, describing men as rapists.

  5. He makes a great comment, about police policy.
    They don’t measure, how many they prove innocent.
    Few rewards will be given, for proving the guilty innocent.

    They also raise the question, about conducting an interview.
    And if there’s an allegation, then the interview is important.
    The best result is a confession, and that happens.
    It’s what happens next, that’s the problem.
    As what’s left is liars, and the innocent.
    To the innocent, it’s already an abuse of rights.
    Do they test if he lies, or if she lies.

    What price do the police pay, for abuse of rights.
    How much time was taken, from the innocent person.
    Was the same time spent, on addressing the false accusation.
