Before you start celebrating that South Dakota was not #1 in 2012 read below! (2013 rape data for the United States has not been published yet.)

(Webmaster's comment 1: Unbelievably the 2012 South Dakota rape rate went up to 70.2, but South Dakota fell to second place. It lost the first place honors to Alaska which rose to 79.7. Don't worry, maybe we'll get first place back for 2013. Getting third place is unlikely, South Dakota would have to fall to below 45 to do that and that ain't likely.)

(Webmaster's comment 2: How can this be? How can this happen? It can only happen in a state where many men do not respect women. A state where many men are treating women as sexual prey, not as human beings. A state where many men see women as being subservient to men.

We need to change these prevailing attitudes and stop making excuses for domestic abuse or any violence against women (or against men for that matter). The good men and women of this state need to make a stand that they will not tolerate the behavior of those men who do not treat women with the respect they deserve as human beings.)
