The Rape of Richard Beck
(1985 TV Movie)
Seattle veteran cop Richard Beck becomes a sexual assault victim and must deal with the painful aftermath.
Tough, blunt Officer Beck feels no compassion for rape victims, thinking that they "bring it upon themselves" . That is until he himself is raped by a couple of vicious felons, one of whom actually says he will make him "squeal like a pig."
Made for TV Movie dealing with personal turmoil and the emotional toll of being a sexual-assault victim, only the victim isn't female; it's an alpha-male tough-guy cop whose preconceived attitudes about rape victims are at odds with his manner as a husband and father. But the violent assault changes his mind.

Richard Beck is a veteran Seattle cop with little sympathy for sexual-assault victims. His loose-cannon tactics get him reassigned to the city's sex-crimes department--and result in his own rape by two surly thugs. Afterward, with help from rape counselor Barbara McKee, the formerly-chauvinistic cop experiences a drastic change of heart on the issue and feels compassion for the first time.
