The New York Post has an article that shows that rape and sexual assault has skyrocketed the last school year in the New York City public schools. This is just another example how Mayor Bill de Blasio's lax student discipline code has resulted in the public schools being increasingly unsafe.
According to the New York Post, using NYPD school safety data found the following:
- Sex crimes skyrocketed by 138% last school year.
- There were 31 felony sexual misconduct arrests last year compared to 16 the year before. That is almost double from the 2016-17 school year.
- Overall sex crimes increased by 76% from 51 in the 2016-17 school year to 83 in the 2017-18 school year.
- Rape charges increased by 240% last school year, from 5 in the 2016-17 school year to 12 last school year.
