RAINN...which stands for Rape, Abuse, Incest National Network has stated that someone is sexually assaulted every 2 minutes. Just think about that for a minute...EVERY two minutes. And while I suppose the majority of the victims are females.....they aren't always.....nor are they always adult.
RAINN also states that 54% of all rapes are NOT reported to authorities (or sometimes anyone). Out of those reported one in four will lead to an arrest. Out of those arrests only ONE out of four will lead to a felony conviction. The fact is...that out of 100 sexual assaults...97 rapists will never ever be punished for their actions.
RAINN states that this sends a clear message that if you commit this crime you can and most likely it seems will get away with it. But I think it also sends a message to the victims....one that says remain silent.
I thought I would be many things in my life...a statistic was not one of them.
