None of the rapists were ever caught. Of the 120 admitted rapists, 44 did it once. The remaining 76 committed 90% of the assaults. Of those 76, 50 did it 2-4 times. And 26 did it 5-50 times. This little group was responsible for 314 sexual assaults. An average of 12 each. How do they get away with it, over and over? Help us stop them:

EDITED TO ADD: Oh my wow, this has gotten hundreds of reblogs in a day. (And part 1 has hit 13,000+ notes in one day.) So I’m editing this to add a direct link to the Predator Alert Tool for OkCupid, a browser tool that visually red-flags the profiles of people who have answered “yes” to the questions in the studies cited above and some infamous others:
