New DoJ Report on Sexual Assault Finds Incidence of Such Violations Slightly Below the SJWs' Favored "One in Five" Figure

6 in 1000, or 0.6%, and, get this, people on college campuses -- wealthier, more socially connected with easier access to lawyers and government officials, more economically secure and economically confident, whiter -- are less likely to be sexually assaulted than other people.

The full study, which was published by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, a division within DOJ, found that rather than one in five female college students becoming victims of sexual assault, the actual rate is 6.1 per 1,000 students, or 0.61 percent (instead of 1-in-5, the real number is 0.03-in-5). For non-students, the rate of sexual assault is 7.6 per 1,000 people.


The higher rate of victimization among non-students is important due in large part to recent accusations that U.S. colleges and universities are hotbeds of so-called "rape culture," where sexual assault is endemic, and administrators and other students are happy to look the other way. The bogus "1 in 5" statistic, which was the product of a highly suspect survey of only two universities and which paid respondents for their answers, has been repeatedly used as evidence of this pervasive rape culture on college campuses across the country.

Even more striking is that according to the BJS data, the likelihood of sexual assault has actually been trending downward across the board since 1997.

Meanwhile, a fourth Sabrina Rubin Erdely story is being questioned as to its accuracy.

The one everyone knows about is of course the UVA story, which is disintegrating by the day.

Before that, people had questioned her claims in a story about child abuse in a Catholic parish.

Mollie Hemingway found some details in another piece somewhat... Lifetime Movie of the Week-ish. And when I say "some details" I mean "almost all of it."

Now @firstteamtommy points out what seem to be major errors in a piece about a raped Navy woman -- Erdely posits things about military procedure in criminal (court martial) matters that @firstteamtommy says are strictly impossible.

It's not looking all that great for Sabrina Rubin Erdely.

Note, by the way, she is absolutely radio-silent and will not comment on any of this.

This is unacceptable. The press would not permit a suspected wrong-doer in any other industry to simply go radio-silent.

Why are they letting their pal do so?
