    I am not following up the various crimes statistic but, it seems as if RAPE is headlining the others.
    Not a day goes by that I read of a rape here and there, especially underaged victims.
    Such dehumanizing crime need severe penalty- even Chemical castration of the convicted.
    We have to be serious, really serious.
