Sexual Assault Study Offers Disturbing Results

Heather Hlavka, an assistant professor of social and cultural sciences, at Marquette University did a 10 year study entitled “Normalizing Sexual Violence” and got results from a sample population drawn from a forensic child advocacy center in the Midwest. “The sample population investigated occurrences of sexual assault on school buses, playgrounds, hallways and generally within school peer groups.”

She used what she called traditional sexual scripts to talk about gender. She field those traditional scripts created double standard.

The study revealed several disturbing results. For example and found girls criticize one another for not avoiding aggressive male behavior and downplay sexual assault to each other as “no big deal” in order to prevent victims from reporting it.

“They grab you, touch your butt and try to, like, touch you in the front, and run away, but it’s okay,” said one 13-year-old girl interviewed in the study. ”I mean … I never think it’s a big thing because they do it to everyone.”

The study was done originally in the hopes of trying to get some explanation of why so few sexual assaults of females on college campuses are ever reported. It has been estimated that as few as 10% of these assaults are ever reported. The study would seem to indicate that many young women view sexual assault as no big deal which might explain the lack of reporting.

Child Abuse In A School Caught On Hidden Camera

Here’s a story out of Atlanta, Georgia about two Harper-Archer Middle School special education teacher’s aides were caught assaulting students aka Child Abuse after a teacher placed hidden cameras in a special needs classroom.

The students were nonverbal, meaning they cannot speak or write or tell anyone what’s happening to them according to a local television station.

One of the teachers was fired the other voluntarily left.

The story did not explain why another teacher had to resort to using hidden camera but from our experience it is clear. It would have been her word against the others and nothing would’ve happened.

This is another example of how effective hidden spy cameras are gaining critical evidence in hard to prove cases such as child abuse no matter where it is.

A hidden spy camera is nothing more than a pinhole camera placed inside a common object that people are used to seeing on a daily basis. Nowadays it is accompanied by a DVR that records to SD card.

Knock-Knock Burglars Caught From Video Surveillance Cameras Footage

This is a story from Saratoga Florida about three men who knocked on the front door of the home. When they got no response they went around to the back of the home and broke in through a sliding glass door.

It was only because of footage from the home’s Home Security Camera that police were able to apprehend and arrest them.

The occupants of the home where there but asleep so they did not hear the burglars take items from their home and leave. The perpetrators were seen leaving with stolen items in a silver Chevy trailblazer.

While the residents did not wake from a nap until the burglars had taken items and left, the perpetrators were captured on video surveillance cameras, sheriff’s officials said. When officers pursued, the burglars drove into the Foothill College parking lot where they got out and fled on foot.

All three were taken into custody without incident, and sheriff’s officials said stolen property was found at the scene.

Unfortunately less than 15% of all home burglary cases are ever solved. So it’s a low risk enterprise for the bad guys.

“Anytime that you can get a picture of the suspect, especially when the suspect is the commission of a crime, that can be very powerful evidence and also help you locate the suspect.”

Campus Assaults Getting Attention

Here’s a story out of Kansas City Missouri about College Sexual Assaults in general and some specifics on how the University of Missouri is handling them.

After years of neglect the subject of sexual assaults on college campuses is finally gaining more scrutiny both on local campuses and in Washington.

The article points out that too many young women for a variety of reasons do not report rapes and sexual assaults. One of the reasons is that in close to 90% of all sexual assaults on a campus the perpetrator is known to the victim. That’s because more than likely they are classmates or live in the same dorm, which in part explains why so few of them are reported. Peer pressure dictates that these crimes not be reported because not only can they jeopardize the college career, but a felony assault on your record can last a lifetime. It affects all facets of your life.

“University of Missouri system officials, led by President Tim Wolfe, must keep their recent pledges that they will improve the reports and responses to sexual assaults on their four campuses. That should include efforts to make the University of Missouri-Kansas City safer for students.”

U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill is pushing for action in Washington DC. She sent a survey to 350 colleges and universities to find out how they report and investigate these assaults to better understand what works and what doesn’t work before proposing needed fixes

One thing is clear we need a national effort by colleges to offer swift and effective help to victims, and tough punishment for criminals involved in the assaults.

Meanwhile we recommend that all women on campus carry a nonlethal self-defense product with them, one that can incapacitate an assailant for as long as 45 minutes.

Identity Theft And Ways To Avoid It

According to this story Identity Theft is on the rise again but the IRS has some tips on how you can protect yourself.

You may have received a phone call from someone posing as an Internal Revenue Service worker during this past tax season.

They may even have the caller id of the IRS and will often ask victims to confirm their Social Security numbers.

Fraud callers also ask victims to wire money immediately with threats for consequences.

“People are manipulating caller id, they are calling pretending to be whether it is from the IRS, or perhaps from utility companies calling businesses demanding immediate payment or cutoff of utilities; they’re making threats,” said U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles Jr.

On another related topic, data breaches at retail establishments and universities seem to be abundant these days. You may be wondering if there’s anything you can do to help protect yourself—and your credit—from prying eyes.

Here’s a tip from the Federal Trade Commission that we’ve never heard before: a credit freeze—or security freeze—on your credit report. By employing a credit freeze, you essentially restrict access to your credit report.

The reason this tool is so effective is that creditors must review your credit report before approving new accounts. If they are unable to access your credit file, they are unlikely to extend credit. As a result, restricting access to your credit report puts the brakes on identity thieves who would open new accounts in your name.

To do this you need to contact each of the credit reporting agencies and be prepared to share with them your name, address, date of birth, Social Security number and other personal information. There are also fees for this service. They are based on your address, but they typically are only between $5 and $10.

This does not affect your credit score or prevent you from getting your free annual credit and you can still open new accounts, apply for jobs, rent an apartment or buy insurance but you’ll need to list the freeze temporarily for specific party such as a landlord.
You still need to monitor your bank credit card and insurance statements for fraudulent transactions.

Here are two excellent ways to protect your identity from being stolen-the two most popular identity theft prevention products.

Domestic Violence Victim’s Options

Here’s a story about domestic violence and the options available to victims. You can read the whole story HERE.

Specifically it talks about a case where of violent domestic abuse offender shot his wife and her parents at their house during an incident recently.

Did you know that 30% of all the people killed in the United States were killed by a domestic partner? The fact is that three women every day are killed by a domestic partner in United States. As many as 30 to 35% of all women in the United States who are married suffer some form of intimate partner violence.

In this particular case there was a restraining order but there is more to it than just getting a piece of paper. People who go to the trouble of getting a restraining order need to let as many people know about it as possible; neighbors, friends and even fellow employees.

“The laws are pretty strong in terms of once that violence protective order is entered. It is sent out to law enforcement. It’s entered into a national database, any violations of that protective order are grounds for immediate arrest. Often the challenge is for the victim to have a path to safety and the domestic violence protective order is a really important piece to that but they often also need resources in finding a new place to live and things like that.”

Women who are in a relationship that has a domestic violence component should seriously consider getting a nonlethal self-defense product.

Home Surveillance Cameras Used To Stop Crime

Here’s a story about how a Chicago suburb is using home Security Cameras to help catch criminals. The program was started by the Hinsdale Police Department and enlisted residents’ security systems to help. The program is starting to pay off because this week police released a video of a man attempting to break into a car.

The program was started last month and listed the help of people who have security systems with cameras to help solve neighborhood crimes. The program is similar to neighborhood watch which is highly successful.

“Investigators have found when canvassing a neighborhood after a crime has occurred that a home video system may have captured a picture of a suspect or a vehicle.

This can be a valuable lead that can help in an investigation and may lead to an arrest.”

The program asks residents to register their outdoor surveillance cameras with the Police Department. “If a crime occurs in the neighborhood police will ask residents to check their systems to see if they captured a picture that may aid in the investigation.”

There is no charge to participate in the program and program participants are kept confidential.

This program may end up being called “video neighborhood watch” because it uses the security cameras of many homeowners together to help stop crime.

Dog Attacks Can Be Prevented By Training

Nearly five million Americans are hurt by Dog Bites each year according to this article from the CBS affiliate in Birmingham, Alabama. That’s from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Dog bites and dog attacks are a problem in every city, no matter the size, in the United States. It is gotten so bad that many insurance companies have lists of dogs they consider to be “dangerous” or “blacklisted breeds.” If you own one of these dogs and it bites someone, your insurance may not cover the damages. Just a few of those breeds that are popular with dog owners are: Pit bulls, Rottweilers, Great Danes and German Shepherds.

Even smaller breeds of dogs can cause problems. The CBS affiliate reached out to a local dog training expert for some tips. He said that socialization and training are the two keys for creating a good dog.

“Not to bite people, not to jump on people and what they can and can’t do. They can’t learn that just on their own. They have to be taught that at an early age. If you wait six months they’re already six months behind.”

In three years of business, he said it’s actually been the little dogs that have bitten or nipped him, not the larger ones. “Small dogs actually bite more per year than any large dog ever has. It’s just not reported because it doesn’t cause as much damage and it’s usually the family members.”
