But the one who sees herself as a collateral victim, on the other hand, wished to work for its dissemination, by participating in the creation of eponymous site.
“What I suffered conditioned my activism today. We can no longer be silent ”, proclaims the young woman.
Bordeaux, targeted by the #DoublePeine
In the wake of #Me too and more recently from #PayetaComplaint, Double Peine was launched on Twitter by the feminist activist Anna toumazoff, who denounced the reception of rape victims at the Montpellier police station.
His collection of testimonies, posted on September 28, 2021, allowed languages to be untied throughout France.
The messages were then compiled on the platform doublepeine.fr, where the Bordeaux central police station is not spared. About fifteen testimonies target the reception of victims on the spot.
“When we launched our call for testimonials, I received over a thousand messages on Instagram in one night. But some never made it to the platform. I think it was more complicated to publish her story for all to see than to send it to a private messaging “, laments Léane, who admits to having been particularly attentive to messages concerning” her city “.
“No agent has been the subject of a complaint”
On the police side, we regret that the agents are targeted, once again. “We throw the police to the media, with accusations of which we have no trace,” annoyed for example Éric Marrocq, zonal delegate of Alliance Police Nationale.
“We take all matters seriously. And no agent has been the subject of such a complaint neither on our register, nor with the hierarchy. Otherwise, obviously, the agent in question would have been subject to sanctions, ”further advances the union representative.
Words put into perspective by Bruno Vincendon, from the Alternative Police union. “Existing failures. But I think things have changed a lot. What these women say, it must not happen in 2021, ”he hopes.
Deficiencies in training
It also points to the gaps in the training of police officers: a four-hour online training module on the reception of victims of sexual violence to be followed during the agents’ working time.
“It has the merit of existing,” he agrees, “but it is very insufficient and just allows the government to boast of having settled the issue. What we need to stop opposing. Let us open up a dialogue with the victims, to help them rebuild. “
