When a woman who claims to have been raped asks for a female detective

That’s taken as a sign of possible deception. “I am betting nine out of 10 times, when a woman asks for a female detective the story is going to be untrue,” says Lamboy. The operative theory is that women who are lying think female cops will be more receptive to their stories.

This is troubling, especially considering there is no explanation of why this is the operative theory.
