    Exclamation Responsibility after not reporting rape

    Advertisements
    Is a rape victim liable/responsible for what happens to subsequent victims if they do not report the crime? What if the rape victim reports the crime but will not testify?

    Absolutely not. The rapist is responsible for his/her own actions; no one else is responsible for the actions of a rapist.

    It is not the victims fault that she got rape so I don't think she is responsible if someone else got rape. It's not easy for someone discuss what happen to them to anyone, there are some that might be able to communicate but others take years before they even discuss the topic. So I don't think the victim should be liable for what happen.

    I think that they should report it no matter what, but not saying they should be responsible for it...I didn't report mine, but I'd feel like CRAP if I found out he did it again and I hadn't said anything.

    Not liable no. But IMO it's the right thing to do.

    I agree

    Not to mention that even reported rapists can and have raped again because the system does not put people away automatically. The act of reporting is just the first step in rolling the ball toward hopeful charges and incarceraton.

    i think it's the right thing for them to report it or testify...but if they can't, no, it is not their fault if there are subsequent rapes. they cannot control the actions of the rapist so therefore, they aren't liable, in my opinion.

    yep... The only one who can be held responsible is the ass who does that disgusting mess. But I know if I didn't report a rape and it happened again then I would personally feel responsible. That's just how I operate though.
