Signed and note. But the sexual predators are usually on the Reservation its self. They almost never report being raped by their own, which is almost a common place practice. Nor do they report incest by the father which also is rampant on the reservation. This petition should be for self protection and stronger enforcement of the laws on the reservation.

Men who assualt or rape women should be disciplined in a way where they won't do it again. Men who go to prision are more likely to go out and do it again which is a ointless punishement because they are not learning.

Does anyone expect either Boehner or Cantor to acknowledge these letters? Those two? They could care less, I am certain.

Here in Canada dozens of First Nation women disappeared and the police did not even bother to investigate. The report came out this week. Racism is at play here. Women are getting a raw deal but Native women are treated even worse. Please do not make accusations you cannot substantiate

signed....While one out of every three seems high, imagine what the real number would be if every woman who was assaulted reported it, and reported it every time.
Speaking as a USAn with Euro. roots, just about every woman I've ever talked with has been attacked, and very few of them pursued legal remedies.

When a woman deals with the police it's still likely that she'll be reporting to a male, in our prissy America, many do not even have the correct words to say what happened.
Woman who do report, may be in shock, or paralyzed; frozen with fear which can morph into paranoia or post traumatic Shock.

All the gains in the '70's & ''80's are being steadily eroded.
