I mean, the US has lower rape stats than most of Western Europe and those below the US have very low numbers, what do you think is making them keep it in their pants?

Oh, look what happens when women have guns.


I guess rape isn't a big issue for those of you who want to grab them.

Given that all these shooting sprees are committed by men, why should any new legislation apply to women?

@DrProfessor: Gee I was grumpy last night, sorry for being rude. I have to stop taking all those "grumpy pills" eh?

You link costs $36 dollars But I get the idea.

I think drugs and BOOZE are the biggest reasons people are poor, and the main motivator for crimes. Rates of substance abuse vary from group to group, and pretending "group X" doesn't have a problem isn`t going to help them.

There have been "ethnic" gangs since the dawn of time, it`s got nothing to do with skin colour and everything to do with "lifestyle choices".

And here's a scholarly article

I might only be able to access it because my college has an account with the JSTOR website, but essentially the paper examines the question of whther similar communities produce similar crime rates refardless of race. It`s a pretty thick read, but it backs up what I`ve been saying.
