Thumbs down: Rape reminders

What with all the rape discussion in the news as of late, it seemed apropos to reflect on the odds that it appears rape is a daily occurrence in our city. Preliminary estimates from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department suggest a slight decrease in the number of rapes to which they have responded this year - 327 as of Oct. 20 versus 334 during the same period in 2011. The police logged almost 400 rapes in the city in 2011, according to the annual package of crime data it sends to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault notes 4,000 substantiated reports of Indiana children sexually abused in a year. More information on awareness, prevention activities and victim outreach is posted at incasa.org. Donations may be sent to 26 N. Arsenal Ave., 3rd Floor, Indianapolis, 46201 or made online.
