Great article on why our laws do not stop sexual assualt

Kirk Makin wrote and amazing and well researched article on October 5, 2013 in the Vancouver Sun. He repeated all the horrid statistic including: 90% of rapes are not reported  of the 10% reported and police lay charges in less than 16% of cases. Sadly defence lawyers fight like crazy in court, shaming victims. No wonder women have no trust in our legal system. Think about it, in our current system we give men no opportunity to say I am sorry or repair harm (restorative justice rather than penalty). Men either face a criminal conviction or walk away free. Its all about winners and losers. Until we design a legal system that works to create safe society, women will be raped and men will not learn how to prevent it or how to heal from the harm.
