Personal Interests vs. Legal Rights of Alleged Victims

The corrosive attitudes many people have really come to the foreground when the subject of victims' rights comes up.

Those who scream "Innocent until proven guilty" when talking about alleged rapists can quickly turn to issuing screams for the alleged victims to be punished. Sometimes people scream both of these at the same time without a flicker of awareness that these two contradict each other.

With these attitudes we need to look for the areas where crime victims need more explicit rights and provide the funding to support these rights.
