LETTERS From D. Godfrey, Newport:The advice given in your item ‘Women warned after sex attacks’ (CP, 23-03-12) cannot go unchallenged. I was surprised to read ‘as always, women should not walk alone after dark’ as a quote from a police officer. Half the population is female! Can you imagine writing this about any other group in society? Logically, given the nature of the report, any curfew or chaperoning should be for men. No one would seriously suggest this and it is therefore ridiculous to suggest it for women. Fear keeps people off the streets and increases the potential for crime as there are fewer people about. While I congratulate the police for their progress on this case I hope they will think more carefully before making such comments in future.
