The other day the Midland Police Department released its annual crime report which was duly reported in the morning paper at an article titled MPD: Reported rape up 27 percent in Midland. It states that forcible rape went from 36 in 2014 to 46 in 2015.
Is that cause for alarm? The MPD says no as there is no serial rapist stalking unaware women, these are cases in which the women accused acquaintances. Victims may still feel victimized, but there is a difference.
In "he said, she said" cases it's always smart to weigh additional evidence which is what every good law enforcement agency would do. In light of that, how many of those cases resulted in a conviction? We aren't told that.
The local police department conducts Women’s Self Defense, R.A.D. (Rape Aggression Defense) classes to teach women physical defense tactics. It's a good bet that no woman who completed that class was among those statistics cited above. I imagine they emerge from the class with skills like those kick-ass young women we see in the movies -- able to vanquish armed attackers two at a time.
