It's Even Worse

Those who would like to make the victim disarmament laws in the United States as severe as those in Great Britain prefer to minimize reports of criminal attacks over there. It seems the British government prefers to do the same. The British Crime Survey caps the number of times a victim can be targeted by an offender at five incidents counted per year. There are so far thankfully few places in the U.S. where an offender could survive targetting the same victim more than five times.

Unfortunately it is not unheard of for domestic abusers to assault their victims many more than 5 times in a year. And even with police intervention, these animals almost never spend more than 2 or 3 days in jail.
