Does that not count as a warning?

I’m asking because this article has definitely set off emotional reactions in myself and other people I know. Respectfully, I understand the right for the press to publish what it wants, but considering what I and others have suffered, I’m asking you to please add a warning. Thank you.

I mean… this is how police investigations work, right? If there’s a claim that a crime took place, the police are obligated to investigate, whether the alleged victim wants them to or not. They are not obligated to disclose the facts or methods of their investigation to the alleged victim.

Either GUPD is a ‘real’ police organization, or it’s not. If it’s the former, then their primary allegiance has to be to the investigation, not to the complainant. If it’s the latter, then we’ve presupposed that they’re not good enough to competently investigate these types of incidents to begin with.
