Co-eds more likely to get raped at Duke U. than in nation’s most crime-ridden city: survey

Article here. Excerpt:

'A recently released Duke University sexual assault survey suggests female students at the prestigious university are raped at a higher rate than in America’s most dangerous city.

But it’s not being taken at face value by due process advocates and skeptics of the campus rape “frenzy,” who say the survey and its results are plagued with errors.

The Duke University Student Experiences Survey, released in February, purports to have found widespread sexual assault at the private North Carolina university. It defines sexual assault as including “any unwanted, nonconsensual sexual contact,” which critics say is misguided and causes confusion on the overall findings.

The survey found 40 percent of undergraduate female respondents and 10 percent of undergraduate male respondents have been sexually assaulted since they enrolled at Duke.

Those figures would make Duke more dangerous than America’s most crime-ridden city, KC Johnson, co-author of The Campus Rape Frenzy: The Attack on Due Process at America’s Universities, wrote at Minding the Campus.

“This data would mean that each year, a female undergraduate at Duke is 5.5 times more likely to be a victim of violent crime than a resident of St. Louis, which FBI statistics listed as the nation’s most dangerous city in 2016,” Johnson wrote.'
