Baltimore's police officers "coerced sex in exchange for immunity from arrest." Is sexual abuse a widespread national problem?

  • Yes, sexual abuse is a widespread national problem

    Sexual abuse, in it's many forms, is a widespread national problem. Police office coercing sex in exchange for immunity for arrest is not just a Baltimore problem, this has happened in many more cities across the country. Just like racisim, this is a deep rooted issue. To erridicate this problem, the personal opinons and beliefs of society has to change.

  • Sexual abuse is a widespread national problem

    Almost every day, it seems, there is another story about sexual abuse and harassment in the headlines. Accusations that Baltimore police officers "coerced sex in exchange for immunity from arrest" followed soon after accusations that Roger Ailes coerced sex in exchange for promotion or continued employment at Fox News. For American women, these revelations are no surprise. According to various polls over the last decade, 20% of women in the U.S. can attest that sexual abuse is a national problem.

  • I'm sure it is.

    Even though more victims speak out nowadays, victims abused by someone in a place of authority may still hesitate to speak out and go up against the system. I think all policeman should wear bodycams to prevent them from abusing their positions. It's disgusting that they were soliciting sexual favors, something needs to change.

  • In recent years it would appear that sexual abuse is a serious problem.

    In recent years there seem to be more and more sexual abuse cases in this country. Perhaps social media is making it appear as though there are more cases or it could actually be brining more and more of these cases to the surface. Sexual abuse in one form or another seems to be widespread and a serious problem that has existed for years and only now are we becoming more aware of it.
