Although I support the "reclaim the night" concept and agree that more
should be done to prevent rape and support its victims, I think this one
paragraph justifies hiding the article for racism.
I have no idea whether the stats quoted are true, but to present them
with no broader analysis is clearly trying to draw the conclusion that
immigrants are inherently more dangerous, rather than some less causal
(and more plausible) correlation. This is not the kind of propaganda
that we exist to support.
It's a shame though to see such blatant racism in an otherwise good
article on the issue.
