Michigan State University 2016 Crime Rates Show Promising Numbers
WLNS.com published a report Thursday showing drastic decreases in crime rates on the Michigan State University campus in 2016. But, vehicle thefts on campus were up, as were rapes. The latter can be directly related to the number of reported incidents allegedly involving Dr. Larry Nassar.
Burglary, alcohol related crimes, and dating violence crimes all saw dramatic declines from 2014 to 2016. But, the staggering statistic is a total of 5 non-campus rapes in 2014 and 2015. There were 68 reports in 2016, all tied to Nassar.
