Most College Campus Assaults Go Unreported

This is a story about how a state representative is coming to Radnor College to talk about college campus assault reporting. There is a bill before Congress that will protect whistle blowers and encourage people to come forward. Currently one out of every four women on a college campus can expect to be assaulted while in college. An alarming number of assaults go unreported for a variety of reasons, mostly based on fear and reprisal.

More On College Campus Sexual Assaults

Here’s another story about Campus Sexual Assaults where a recent White House report stated “No one is more at risk of being raped or sexually assaulted than women at our nation’s college and universities.” That same report found that one in five women are sexually assaulted on college campuses, but only one in eight students report it.

“In response, President Obama appointed a task force to make recommendations for colleges to prevent and respond to report of crime, increase public awareness of each school’s track record, and enhance coordination among federal agencies to hold schools accountable if they don’t confront the problem.

The report suggested most sexual assaults are occurring at parties and are often precipitated by drinking or drug use. Sometimes, victims are incapacitated. Most of the time, victims know the person who assaults them.”

Teen Dating Violence

Here is another story about Teen Dating Violence where a professional counselor offers tips to teens to keep them safe.

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness and Prevention Month. It is a month usually associated with love but some teenage girls are receiving threats and abuse from their boyfriend.

“According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, one in three teens in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional or verbal abuse from a partner. Women ages 16 to 24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence, which is triple the national average.

Most abuse comes from electronic communications like: monitoring the whereabouts of a partner, posting intimate or embarrassing pictures of video of a partner, even name-calling on social media.”

McCoy advises parents to be in close contact with their kids and look for any odd behavior.

“I would advise parents to always know who their kids are with and where they are and certainly get to know the person that their child is dating,” she said. “Keep lines of communication open, stay up at night when those kids come home from those parties or dates and talk to their kids and just see what type of emotional state they’re in, are they happy or are they distressed.”

McCoy said she hasn’t had a lot of students talk to her about an abusive relationship but it does happen.

Domestic Violence Up In Utah, Kansas

Here are two stories about UTAH Domestic Violence and Kansas Domestic Violence and how the numbers of cases increases while the resources including money in both states are decreasing or staying flat.

Utah and Kansas are falling behind when it comes to serving victims of domestic violence.

Over the past five years funding has remained flat but 13 private domestic violence shelters in the state have managed to house more than 41 percent more survivors — going from 76,767 shelter nights in 2008 to 108,377 nights in 2012.

Over those same five years the number of people who weren’t served by domestic violence shelters increased by 67 percent. In 2012, that meant 2,809 people — mostly women and children — were turned away by already-full domestic violence shelters.

“Kendra Wyckoff, the executive director of the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition, added that Utah’s rates of rape and domestic violence are higher than the national average.”

The story also claims that because it is a hidden epidemic that many victims suffer in silence. It is a well-known fact that many victims do not report domestic violence to the police until after they have been assaulted 25 to 30 times. How tragic?

One of the best ways you can defend against an assault in a domestic abuse situation is with a self-defense product such as this 8,000,000 volt Tactical Stun Flashlight.

Parking Lot Assaults

Here’s a story from a local newspaper about a man who got into a woman’s car and committed a Parking Lot Assault.

According to police, the man who said he had a gun, abducted a woman in a parking lot forcing her to drive him home assaulting her in the process.

The man identified himself as “Pedro” punched the woman in the face twice. She suffered a contusion to her right eye and swelling to her lip. The suspect took cash and a cell phone from the cup holder and a cell phone from the back seat. He got out of the car and ran towards an apartment complex.

She was able to identify the assailant and police hope that they will soon make an arrest. He never did show the gun but merely said that he had one.

The best way for women to defend themselves against any kind of an assault is with a self-defense product. We particularly recommend items that are on keychains because it is more likely to be with you wherever you go. There is a new product out that is a powerful stun device that comes with a keychain attachment.

The 5 million volt SMACK Stun Gun is so small that it actually has a keychain attachment. It is only 3.5 inches x 1.25 inches x .75 inches and weighs 3 ounces. It is so well made that it has a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
