There's Some Kind Of Pattern There

What did I say about The Dave's sense of timing ? One day after his surrender to the femiloons, we get this.
A woman who made eight separate false claims of rape or sexual assault has been spared jail.

Gemma Gregory, 28, accused seven different men over a six-year period.

Former boyfriends were subjected to police questioning and DNA testing to clear their names.
Her fantasy stories also wasted huge amounts of police time.
On the plus side, I guess we have an answer to the age old question: seven to arrest innocent bystanders, one to find out the light bulb's not actually broken in the first place. Oops no: here's how that eight investigation went:
Her latest offence was in May when she rang police to say she had been raped at her home. She stuck to her story in a video interview three days later despite being warned she would be prosecuted if it was another lie.

A 34-year-old man was interviewed by police and for the next five months Gregory regularly contacted officers to ask how the case was progressing.
Five months!

Hmmmm.... is tracking down real offenders helped or hindered by forcing PC Plod to handle this garbage ? That's a toughey - well, it is for Dave anyweay.

All of which is by way of saying that, in so far as Dave's proposition rests on the twin pillars of femiloon paranoia, namely the beliefs that 'women don't lie' and that PC Plod is deliberately letting the guilty go free, it does tend to founder in the face of evidence that the police will try and close even the most self-evidently hopeless cases. Meanwhile, the rest of us can try and think of other contexts where the left wants the police to continue to harass suspects even though there's no actual evidence.
