Passivity and Fear

That's what radiates from the stories about the recent gang-rape at Rutgers University. (Examples here and here.)

Police are patrolling, lighting is being checked-- there was even a candle-light vigil. Exactly the kind of thing that deters thugs.

Generally speaking, i hate the word "sheeple". But this attitude (especially from journalists) comes mighty close.
