  1. We can only hope scumbags like Mugabe will feel shamed into doing something similar. But don’t hold your breath …..

  2. I’d like to think this could be quite important in changing police attitudes to dealing with rape and homophobic violence. I suppose the pessimistic part of me thinks they’ve already got laws against rape and violence and obviously these things still happen and there’s still monumental neglect of duty, but at least this is a way to pressurise and possibly mount legal challenges to poor response.
