    "from within"… I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, CLARK.

    My thought: if the police and their supporters are tired of police-slagging, perhaps the police might, oh, I dunno, maybe stop doing the kinds of things that would merit slagging?

    "the United States outdoes India when it comes to custodial rapes of women by law enforcement personnel."

    That would amusing if it (a) were remotely true, and (b) didn't thus minimize just how mind-boggling common rape is in India (such that this video actually underscores the problem: http://youtu.be/FQso95Vfwwc ).

    I was on a federal jury that convicted a prison guard for his actions with a female inmate so they don't always get away with it. The final plea of the defense would be amusing if it wasn't so sad, "He's already lost his wife and family, don't cause him to loose his freedom. He's been punished enough." Ah, no.

    Maybe you could provide a source supporting your contention that it isn't "remotely true."

    STW: bankers don't "always" get away with raping the economy, but they tend to.

    I've never seen an economy be sexually assaulted.

    Sadly, most have no clue how deeply and throughly shafted they have been.

    I fully expect this to be high-larious.

    Without looking for statistics, I expect that the statement should have included the word "reported", as in "the United States outdoes India when it comes to reported custodial rapes of women by law enforcement personnel". The article also said that rape is the fastest-growing crime, which, again, I suspect is not accurate, but rather, indicates that rape is more likely to be reported now.

    Even now, rape is still believed to be underreported in the US. In third world countries the problem getting women (and men) to report rape still faces enormous cultural roadblocks.

    There are 12 times as many women in prison in the US, so that doesn't sound surprising.
