That's why American citizens have no business looking down on other countries when it comes to crimes (there was an elementary school massacre/shooting near where I live. Should my daughter stop going to school?). The annual r-pe # in India is about 20,000 (vs 90,000 in the US). Sure, it's not clear how many go unreported in either country and in India the stats are slightly on the rise (22,000) while they are declining in the US (down to about 85, 000), still, looking at those numbers, I don't think Americans should feel in a strong position to condescend to other nations. I guess it's a natural human reflex to believe one's own country is superior or better in many ways but every country has their problems and their "claim to shame".
