William Beaver, professor of social science at Robert Morris University wrote an interesting article entitled, “Campus Sexual Assault: What We Know and What We Don’t.” What we realize is that sexual assault or rape is the shielded crime. “Sexual assault on campuses in the United States is a hot-button issue. How big is the problem? It is hard to know because many assaults go unreported. Whatever the case, it is difficult to know exactly how many of these offenses actually occur. Many crimes are seriously underreported, but sexual ones even more so. The Vast majority of campus sexual assaults are not reported to either law enforcement or to school officials.” Mr. Beaver talked about a report done by the Center for Public Integrity in 2010. The report titled Sexual Assault on Campus: A Frustrating Search for Justice; found that most victims of sexual assault did not report it, particularly if drugs and alcohol were involved, and many female did not consider the incident in question a sexual assault. Many females just simply want this this assault to go away and by reporting it, their own character is the one on trial. Yes, many females live with this shielded crime for the rest of their life.
