Police have been accused of hanging “victim-blaming“ baubles on a Christmas tree in a church.Yeah. You all know where this is going, right? And why?
“Don’t drink to excess” and “being drunk makes you vulnerable” are printed messages serving as decorations for Suffolk Constabulary’s festive tree, according to images posted on social media.
Amy Roch, from Suffolk Rape Crisis centre, told The Independent the messages are "totally wrong" as they are "focussing attention in the wrong place".God forbid women take responsibility...
Charles Jenkin, the vicar for the church holding the Christmas tree festival, said: "St Mary-le-Tower church welcomes the 'Suffolk Police Safety at Christmas' tree in our festival.
"It is full of sensible advice, although taken altogether it is a rather sad reflection of how careful people have to be these days to stay safe."How long do you give it until he - and Suffolk Police - are forced into a climbdown, and have to remove the tree?
