In the United States, a rape is reported about once every five minutes. (FBI Uniform Crime Report, 1997)

 

Rape is called "the most underreported violent crime in America." In a large national survey of American women, only 16% of the rapes (approximately one out of every six) had ever been reported to the police. (Rape in America: A Report to the Nation, National Victim Center, 1992)

 

In a study conducted by the Department of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, researchers interviewed 8,000 women and 8,000 men. Using a definition of rape that includes forced vaginal, oral, and anal intercourse, the survey found that 1 in 6 women had experienced an attempted rape or a completed rape.

 

At the time they were raped:

22% were under the age of twelve
54% were under the age of eighteen
83% were under the age of twenty-five

 

(Prevalence, Incidence, and Consequences of Violence Against Women, Department of Justice, 1998)

 

In the Rape in America study, 60% of the women who reported being raped were under 18 years old:

 

29.3% were less than 11 years old
32.3% were between 11 and 17
22.2% were between 18 and 24
7.1% were between 25 and 29
6.1% were older than 29
3.0% age was not available

 

(Rape in America: A Report to the Nation, National Victim Center, 1992)

 

Acquaintance rape is much more prevalent than stranger rape. In a study published by the Department of Justice, 82% of the victims were raped by someone they knew (acquaintance/friend, intimate, relative) and 18% were raped by a stranger.

 

(From a report on Violence Against Women based on data from the National Crime Victimization Survey, Bureau of Justice Statistics, 1995)

 

In the Rape in America study, 80% of the girls and women who were raped were victimized by someone they knew. (Rape in America: A Report to the Nation National Victim Center, 1992)

 

Many surveys have been conducted to determine the prevalence and incidence of rape and sexual assault. The differences in findings across these various surveys are related to how rape and sexual assault are defined, characteristics of the sample selected for study, screening questions, interviewer training and techniques, and other methodological and procedural issues. However, in virtually every victimization survey conducted, the number of unreported rapes and sexual assaults far exceeds those that are reported to authorities.

It seem the US Department of Justice did not get Abe Foxman's blessings before publishing its report - "Prevalence, Incidence, and Consequences of Violence Against Women, Department of Justice, 1998"

PITY!

It's also a pity that a place like Saudi Arabia, which is really meant to be the perfect Islamic state, isn't it (due to the fact that no other religion is allowed there), can't keep control of its people to the extent that so many of them appear to be rapists and murderers.

Gosh - they almost look as bad as any given democracy, eh?

You must have a 'baby memory'. You keep on forgetting that I told you before that the only country 'close' to an Islamic State is Iran - or perhaps some day Israel under HAMAS - did I scare you?

Whatever. I said "meant to be". Just like the USA is "meant to be" a safe and free place, but as shown by your stats - it isn't.

By the way- are you obssessed with sex and violence? It appears that you are. Maybe we need to find you a nice, dominatrix Muslima for you to marry so you get a bit of everything.

No country can be safe from the 'evil doers' - However they can be put on 'rope' if Islamic Shari'ah is applied.

Yes I am obsessed in exposing the 'evil doers', who happens to be mostly - according to my Jew professor Henry Makow, PhD. How about you - Do you LOVE those criminals?

I don't even understand what you wrote. I assume you left some words out.

Oh yes - and killing people for crimes is SO effective! It stops ALL crime, doesn't it? And innocent people NEVER get killed by mistake, do they?
