Not to get too sidetracked, because I agree Beckel is an idiot, but these statistics seem a bit unrealistic. I went to a university with a student pop. of 26,000. That would mean, as a low estimate, approx. 2,080 rapes occurred, of which 395 would have been reported. If that many rapes are known to be occurring then 1) why would anyone send their daughter to college, and 2) why hasn't there been a class action lawsuit against any campus for failure to protect its students from an obvious epidemic.
