Bonnie Fisher: Domestic Terrorist
"College campuses host large concentrations of young women who are at greater risk for rape and other forms of sexual assault than women in the general population or in a comparable age group. Based on their findings, Bonnie Fisher and her colleagues estimate that the women at a college that has 10,000 female students could experience more than 350 rapes a year a finding with serious policy implications for college administrators.
"Fisher also found that many women do not characterize their sexual victimizations as a crime for a number of reasons (such as embarrassment, not clearly understanding the legal definition of rape, or not wanting to define someone they know who victimized them as a rapist) or because they blame themselves for their sexual assault. The study reinforces the importance of many organizations efforts to improve education and knowledge about sexual assault."
This completely absurd, unfounded, untested, and cynical hypothesis makes Bonnie Fisher a domestic terrorist who's far more dangerous to the American public than Osama Bin Ladin, even IF he's guilty as charged.
FEMINIST MENTALITY: WOMEN ARE HOOD ORNAMENTS
She complains that women don't "think" they were raped because they might have been worried that they might have contributed to the incident? What does Bonnie Fisher think women are--hood ornaments? Women DO contribute to the mating game, and one of those contributions is to intentionally and calculatingly raise a man's libido. It's the "belief" by feminists like her that the woman with a short skirt and no panties who went to a pool hall and bent over the table while shooting pool and getting drunk, was not at all at fault when seven men in the pool hall "raped" her. Such a notion is equivalent to roller blading down the fast lane of a freeway and complaining that the seven trucks that ran over them should have been able to stop on a dime. Or playing chicken with a train while riding a bicycle. Feminists like her can never understand that the fault is 100% the woman's, and that it's only because of their own mass hysteria that the seven men were the ones who were held 100% accountable: they were imprisoned for 20 years each while the "victim" received a "victim's compensation award" of $10,000.
FEMINIST MASS HYSTERIA LIKE THIS PUT TWO MILLION MEN IN PRISON
The mass hysteria created by feminists like Bonnie Fisher's causes American men to be accused of rape 1,678 TIMES as often as Indian, Japanese, Italian, or French men. Without such mass hysteria, our prison population would be one twentieth to one fiftieth of what it is. It's exclusively due to feminist studies like this that American men are now a third of the men in the world who're behind bars, and still growing, and why more than half of the men whose DNA was tested AFTER they were convicted and imprisoned didn't even match the DNA from the crime scene [read: they were innocent of all charges]. This is why there are, per capita, 721 TIMES as many American men in prison for rape and sexual assault than there are in Japan (209 vs. 0.29 per 100,000 population). If we had an incarceration rate equivalent to countries like Japan, then 2,048,780 of the 2,100,000 inmates now in American prisons and jails wouldn't even be there. If these 2,048,780 extra inmates were falsely convicted because of the mass hysteria created by stupid feminists like Bonnie Fisher, then domestic terrorism like theirs is a far bigger threat to our culture than Osama Bin Laden could ever dream of being.
DAMAGES TO SOCIETY ARE $410 BILLION AND 14,000 LIVES
The total damages to society due exclusively to such frivolity by women, including loss of productivity to our economy of the 2.4 million public servants who must be hired to imprison men like them, their overhead costs, retirement benefits, social security costs, increased welfare costs of the relatives of inmates, lawyers, judges, clerks, etc., is more than $200,000 per inmate. This $410 billion additional cost is the equivalent of $20 WTCs per year. Each two years in prison shortens a man's life expectancy by one year, so the current overpopulation is equivalent to 1,024,390 man years. With a life expectancy of 73 years, this is the equivalent of 14,032 lives, or $2 WTCs. Domestic terrorism like hers costs 20 TIMES as much in dollars and 2 TIMES as much in lives as all terrorism against the US by all foreign terrorists, combined.
66 WOMEN MISSED WORK BECAUSE THEY WERE RAPED
With so much mass hysteria and such a huge prison population, it's impossible for the ordinary American to characterize the magnitude of the problem. Even though we already have more men in prison for sex crimes than the rest of the world combined, feminists like Bonnie Fisher still complain that three quarters of such crimes are never even reported or prosecuted, so the impression is that millions of women are being raped and the perpetrators aren't ever arrested, that American women are constantly in danger of being raped, and that rape was destroying the lives of millions of women. Thus it might come as quite a shock to many that only 66 women missed work in 1995 due to rape. 20,532 TIMES as many men missed work that year due to injuries. 110 TIMES as many men missed work due to a workplace assault. Three TIMES as many men missed work simply because somebody bit them.
WOMEN WHO BITE MEN CAUSE THREE TIMES AS MUCH DAMAGE AS MEN WHO RAPE WOMEN
It's not that women aren't encouraged to miss work if they've been raped. The message from Bonnie Fisher's office is that getting raped is a profitable venture, sometimes worth millions of dollars (as in the Fells Acres case), that taking off time from work will lead to even bigger "victim assistance awards". If this figure is biased in any direction, then it's high. It's entirely possible that half of those women who missed work due to rape did so simply because of encouragement from domestic terrorist Bonnie Fisher's office. Yet a man is still more likely to miss work JUST because a woman bit him than a woman is to miss work because she was raped? Where are the cries from Bonnie Fisher's office to lock up the women who bit a man seriously enough to cause him to miss work when she knows that they cause three times as much damage? Her very own government's data shows that the women who bite men are three times as dangerous to men than men who rape women are to women, so if men who rape women are such a serious problem to women, then women who bite men are three times as serious a problem not just to men, but to society at large.
RAPE: A $38,544 PER YEAR "PROBLEM"
Half of women over the age of 18 are in the work force, so it's likely that the total number of women whose rape caused them to miss work or other responsibilities is 132, which is 0.05 per 100,000 population. Is it even possible that rape is such a trivial problem for American women, given the constant pressure from the federal government to reconsider what they view as rape? We do know that there were only 365 men in prison in Japan for rape in 1997, which provides a guide-line for just how frequently women are actually raped in a just society. With an average sentence of ten years, Japanese women experience 37 real rapes annually, which is 0.03 rapes per 100,000 population, which isn't that much lower than the above rate of 0.05. This difference could be explained entirely by the succes that Bonnie Fisher's office has had at getting American women to re-define what they view as "rape".
The average time off work is five days, so the 132 women who missed work or other responsibilities due to rape represent 132 man-weeks, which is the equivalent of $38,544 per year (132 weeks x $292 average weekly income of women), which is 0.0000004% of GDP and 0.000001% of the cost of the "solution". With 104,810 reports of rape last year, this is an economic loss per rape of $0.37.
THE "SOLUTION" IS 10.6 MILLION TIMES AS COSTLY AS THE "PROBLEM"
This is yet one more example of how the government's "solution" is 10.6 million TIMES as costly as the original "problem". This would almost relegate the seriousness of rape to the dust bin if it weren't for the fact that there ARE some serious cases of rape, but because domestic terrorists like Bonnie Fisher have cried wolf so often, real rapes are almost entirely ignored. It's unconscionable that women like Bonnie have turned an almost trivial problem into a massive witch hunt to put millions of innocent American men behind bars--just because they hate men.
Until we correct our own social pathology and weed out domestic terrorists like Bonnie Fisher, it's trivial to pursue the flight of fancy of "eliminating terrorism" that allegedly emanates from other parts of the world by declaring war on Muslims just because they're Muslims. Not only do Muslims view us as evil personnified--they have no Bonnie Fisher's to worry about.

Japan's incarceration rate is 24,496 inmates divided by 126 million people, or 19 per 100,000 population. By comparison, the 2.1 million Americans in prison right now represent an incarceration rate of 739 per 100k, which is 41 times greater than Japan's

Includes Penal code crimes and Special law crimes
There have been an average of 1,400 rapes per year reported in Japan over the last 15 years, but if half of the 729 inmates in prison for "indecency and rape" were convicted of rape, then there are only 365 Japanese citizens in prison for rape (an incarceration rate of .29 per 100,000 population). If the average time served is 10 years, then there were only 37 convictions for rape each year, which means that only 2.6% of the rape allegations in Japan result in convictions.
Japan TOO has a problem with false allegations of rape, but rather than convicting innocent men for crimes they didn't commit, like we do, they discover the TRUTH before they throw someone in prison, which means that those who were convicted most likely match the DNA evidence.
Maniacs (no, domestic terrorists) like Bonnie Fisher claim that the actual number of rapes far exceeds the number of convictions. But we ALREADY have 593,939 men in prison for rape, which is a RATE of 209.1 per 100,000 population, which is 721 TIMES that of Japan. At an average of 7.1 years served for rape, this is 83,653 convictions per year, yet these domestic terrorists still aren't satisfied that all the rapists in the country are brought to justice, and claim that 550,000 American women are raped each year. If that could possibly be true, and if they had their way, there would be 6.6 times more American men in prison for rape.
If Japan's conviction rate for rape is representative of the tendency for men to be rapists, then their position is that *American* men are unique and are 4,740 times more likely to be rapists than other men around the world.
Because blacks and Hispanics commit more crimes, it's completely expected that we would have a higher crime rate than Japan. If the actual percentage of White men who are rapists is equivalent to that of Asian men in Japan (and it's completely possible that it's even lower), then there are .29 White rapists per 100,000 population. 12% of the US population who are blacks are 10 times more likely to commit crimes, so it would be expected that there would be 2.9 black rapists per 100,000 population. 8% of the population who are Hispanics are 5 times more likely to commit crimes, so it would be expected that there would be 1.45 Hispanic rapists per 100,000 population. This is a total rape rate of 0.7 per 100,000 population, so it would be expected that there would be only 1,988 actual rapes each year and, with an average sentence served of 7.1 years, only 14,115 rapists in prison.
Where did these other 579,824 American men who are in prison for rape came from? If they are all there because of women who LIED, then what should happen to the 579,824 women who told a LIE serious enough that it caused 579,824 men to be falsely convicted?
This is nothing less than terrorism. It's far more heinous and sinister than anything Osama Bin Laden has ever done. Their cynical hypothesis that American men are 4,740 times more likely to be rapists is completely and totally despicable.
Would the death penalty for LYING, as called for in the Holy Bible, terminate this brand of domestic terrorism?

U.S. CORRECTIONAL POPULATION REACHES 5.9 MILLION OFFENDERS
WASHINGTON, D.C. The combined federal, state and local adult correctional population grew by 163,800 men and women during 1998 to reach a new high of 5.9 million people, the Justice Department's Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) announced today. This includes incarcerated inmates and probationers and parolees in the community, BJS said. Almost 3 percent of the nation's adult population, or about 1 in every 34 adults, were incarcerated or on probation or on parole at the end of last year. As of December 31, 1998, adults under community supervision surpassed 4 million for the first time, to a record 4.1 million, up from 3.2 million on December 31, 1990. At the end of 1998, 3,417,613 adult men and women were on probation, 704,964 were on parole, 1,232,900 were in prisons, and 584,372 were in local jails. From 1990 through 1998 the percentage of the total correctional population under community supervision declined from 74 percent to 69 percent.
234,000 AMERICANS INCARCERATED FOR RAPE IN 1994
Corrections and the convicted sex offender
On a given day about 234,000 offenders convicted of rape or sexual assault are under the care, custody, or control of corrections agencies. About 60% of these sex offenders are under conditional supervision in the community.
Rape and sexual assault offenders account for just under 5% of the total correctional population in the United States:
* Among 906,000 offenders confined in State prisons in 1994, 88,000, or 9.7%, were violent sex offenders.
* Since 1980 the average annual growth in the number of prisoners has been about 7.6%. The number of prisoners sentenced for violent sexual assault other than rape increased by an annual average of nearly 15%--faster than any other category of violent crime and faster than all other categories except drug trafficking.
RAPE VICTIMS ARE ONE PERCENT OF VIOLENT CRIME VICTIMS
Between 1992 and 1998, 3 out of 4 violent crime victims reported that they were not injured during the crime. During this 7- year period about 1 in 4 victims of violence reported sustaining some type of injury, mostly minor. While the proportion varied by type of crime, approximately 3% of all violent crime victims suffered a severe injury, and an additional 1% were victims of rape or sexual assault with unspecified type of injuries.
Of those injured, 82% reported such injuries as bruises, black eyes, cuts, scratches, swelling, chipped teeth, or other injuries requiring less than 2 days hospitalization denoted in this report as minor injuries.
Type of injury Percentage Total victims with injuries 100 %
Minor 82 % Cuts and bruises 66 Other minor 16

IN 1994, JUST AS MANY AMERICANS WERE KILLED BY POLICE AS THERE WERE MURDERERS IN PRISON IN JAPAN
Though the FBI database has records of justifiable homicides by police from 1968, this report is concerned just with homicides occurring since 1976 (see Methodology). The records since 1976 have fuller information than earlier records, including information not only on the felons, but also on the police officers.
According to FBI national data on justifiable homicides by police from 1976 to 1998 --
* 8,578 felons were justifiably killed by police in the United States.
* The largest number of recorded justifiable homicides in a single year was 459 (in 1994), and the smallest number was 296 (in 1987) .
* On average 373 felons were lawfully killed by police each year.
THERE ARE TWO MURDER INMATES IN PRISON FOR EACH MURDER CONVICTION IN THE US
The Nation's murder rate was 6.3 per 100,000 population in 1998 compared to 4.6 per 100,000 population in 1950.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: a murder rate of 6.3 per 100,000 population in 2001, with a population of 284 million, is a total of 17,892 murders per year. The clearance rate for murder in 1998 was only 69%, which means that only 12,345 murders were tried in court. "The State Court Sentencing of Convicted Felons, 1994" shows that the conviction rate was 86%, which means that there were only 10,617 murder convictions that year, and that the average time served for murder is 10.6 years. If the rate were to remain constant, it would be expected that there would be only 112,540 murderers in jails and prisons, which is half as many as there actually are (231,000). It's not clear why there would be two inmates in prison for each murder conviction.]

Approximately 58% of those juveniles formally charged at the State level were adjudicated delinquent (not shown in a table). Similar to those in the Federal system, approximately 29% of those juveniles adjudicated delinquent were committed to a correctional or other residential facility and 56% were placed on probation. Almost a third (31%) of those charged with a violent offense were committed.
