(WXYZ Detroit)   Over 11,000 rape kits dating back 25 years were never tested by the Detroit PD. Thankfully, recent testing of only 1600 of those kits have identified a mere one hundred serial rapists   (wxyz.com) divider line 103

I wonder what the threshold for "serial" is.  The idea that rape is primarily a predatory crime (not a "random dude becomes rapist randomly") is one I've seen a lot and I wonder how deep this data will run in showing that.

Rapists commit, on average, 5.8 rapes (albeit with a median of 3, so there are some very rapey predators out there). I'd say that once you hit that median, you're probably in the realm of "serial".

How does one go about rape? Don't women's tear cause a reduction of testosterone in men? Maybe the victims aren't crying hard enough?

"It was mind blowing to me," said Hargitay that so many rape kits have gone unprocessed. "My head exploded.. "

You know who else lost their head?

I believe attempted rape is a crime that should punish itself.  And any woman who castrates an attempted rapist or rapist should get a frakking medal and a cash reward if the guy is a serial rapist.

But hey, the GOP and the police departments have a problem with women fighting back, so I know that won't happen.

For fair consideration, the city already implemented an effective anti-rape system approximately twenty-five years ago.

Serial means 3 or more when it comes to rape and murder.

Thus proving that all liberals and black people are completely incompetent... and rape people.

Big news story, happens way to often, but any idea of chain of evidence, they being "abandoned" and statute of limitations?

I really wish we could get back to a time where Who What Where When and Why were in news stories, instead of just click bait.

Detroit to hold a bake sale to raise money to fund arresting them.

But then the money will just get embezzled.

Yeah... when it comes to the whole liberals vs "conservatives" on victims fighting back, it all depends on who is the victim, who is the perp, and what tools the victim uses to defend themselves.  But it takes a while to weigh all the factors - I mean, a rape whistle is "morally superior" to a gun, but crushing testicles with knees and hands is cheating, or something.

/I have instructed many women in self-defense and marksmanship.  Prepared, armed women is the best countermeasure to predators.  Despite what the blame the victim/rape victims are sluts/protect the criminal crowds assert.

thats like more than a 40 lb box of rape.

No more rapecations in Michigan for me.

Well considering it's detroit I am surprised the number was not a hell of a lot higher.

Id assume almost all rapists are by definition serial, I mean rape isnt exactly like say killing where there are sometimes the victim had it coming, or you unintentionally do it while commiting a robbery or something.

Dudes, you need to screen your friends better.

No reason to panic.

I'm sure a lot of them have left Detroit by now.

the article is only talking about the 'unprocessed kits' that they 'found' in storage.... that doesn't mean that those are the only rape kits that they didn't process.

This just seems like thinly-veiled PR to get men to move to Detroit.

Still not happening, Detroit.
 
2014-03-13 04:59:01 PM  
I'd like to participate in the Farking, but I just wanted to point out that Detroit is bankrupt, and can't even respond to 911 calls in under 45 minutes. So the three cops that are still employed have a somewhat heavy workload.

Yes, Detroit, where the Republicans have had a strangle hold on power for decades. Clearly this problem is the result of over whelming conservative influence on local politics and law enforcement.

Serial means 3 or more when it comes to rape and murder.


And at different times. If it was 3 or more murders at the same time that wouldn't be a serial killer, it would be a parallel killer, for example.
