Editor's Note: Police in the hometown of Ohio University say there is a serial rapist on the loose in the southeastern Ohio college town of Athens. The victims were all young women walking home in the middle of the night. Ohio colleges and universities are currently barred by state law from allowing their students to exercise their Second Amendment rights. HB 48 seeks to change that.
According to the preliminary research put out by the FBI, violent crime went up in the first six months of 2015. The crime of rape was the fastest growing of all violent crimes. The number of reported rapes in the country rose 9.6 per cent.
