Skip to comments.Indicators of False Accusations (DukeLAX - LieStoppers)
Posted on 11/28/2006 6:02:52 AM PST by Ready4Freddy
The National Center for Women and Policing, a division of the Feminist Majority Foundation, provides training, and training materials, to law enforcement agencies with the intention of improving the ability of these agencies to response effectively to sexual assault crimes. Among their many informative and instructive publications, is a training manual entitled, Unfounded Cases and False Accusations. Examination of this training manual casts further aspersions on both the validity of the Duke Hoax accusers claims and the failure of investigators under the direction of District Attorney Mike Nifong to critically inspect those frail accusations.
This training manual is designed, primarily, to discourage law enforcement agencies and officers from viewing allegations of sexual assault from a perspective of suspicion that accusations are often unfounded or false. The first eighteen pages of this law enforcement training manual provides a compelling and persuasive argument for why all accusations of sexual assault require acceptance on face value, initially. To help these agencies identify potentially false accusations, the manual concludes with a six page appendix, Indicators and Investigation of False Allegations, which outlines the common characteristics of false accusations. The concluding appendix suggests that an allegation should only be considered skeptically when many of the common characteristics of false allegations are found. In total, the National Center for Women and Policing training manual suggests twenty nine common characteristics of false allegations. Rightfully, the manual cautions:
An allegation should only be considered suspect when many of the indicators are present, and it should only be determined to be false when the investigative facts directly contradict the victims account of events.

Chalmers' daughter indicted in assault
From Staff Reports, N&O, Nov 28, 2006 12:30 AM
DURHAM - A grand jury indicted the daughter of Durham's police chief
Monday in a felony assault case. Stefanie Chalmers, 26, was charged
in June with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury in connection
with an incident in April.
Authorities say Chalmers hit a woman with a motor vehicle.
The case against Chalmers, the daughter of Durham Police Chief Steve Chalmers,
is being prosecuted by the state Attorney General's Office.
Her attorney, James "Butch" Williams, said he could not comment on specifics
of the case. "I'm looking forward to vigorously defending this action," he said.
I seriously doubt that's what this group wants
No indication in the article as to where the assault took place (other than the dateline). 'tis curious, tho, isn't it? I guess someone decided that the Nifong/Chalmers axis was a bit too... incestuous.
(06/23/06 - DURHAM) - Stefanie Chalmers ended up in handcuffs Tuesday in connection with an incident that happened two-months ago leaving some people to wonder if the police chief's daughter is getting special treatment.
It appears that's not the case for Stefanie Chalmers the daughter of Durham's Police Chief, Steve Chalmers.
She was a no-show in traffic court on Thursday for a handicap parking violation. Just a few days before, she was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon for an incident that happened two months ago on North Roxboro Street.
"The case against Chalmers, the daughter of Durham
Police Chief Steve Chalmers, is being prosecuted by
the state Attorney General's Office.
Why isn't Nifong prosecuting this case?!?"
Conflict of interest? Notice Butch Williams has the
case. This was where she tried to run someone over
in a parking lot. The warrants went missing for months.
Then this summer Chief Chalmers and City Manager
Baker signed a sweetheart retirement package.
Eighteen months to hang on and retire on a fat pension.
All the while taking care of his sick mother and doing
city business on his Rasberry. If this doesn't smell
like a 'conspiracy' then we've been in the cesspool
(Roy A. Cooper, III) was elected North Carolina Attorney General in November 2000 and took office on January 6, 2001; he was re-elected for a second term in 2004. Cooper was mentioned as a possible Democratic candidate for North Carolina governor, but he has decided to run for re-election as Attorney General in 2008, instead.  The current governor, Mike Easley, succeeded to the post of governor after serving as state attorney general.
A bit off topic:
While I agree that a group like this is highly ideological, it's possible, just possible, that they understand that every claim of rape that's proven to be false damages every future true claim of rape.
