Debunking the myth that there is an epidemic of rape on college campuses.  People often cite the number 1 in 4 women will be the victims of rape or attempted rape during college. This would mean that the rate of violent crimes is 10 times higher on college campuses than they are in Detroit. Does that even make sense?
