    As far as the Dallas police chief’s comments go, I think they were misconstrued in that article. The video of that committee meeting shows him explaining that so far it seems the rapes are frequently from known offenders and happen on dates in which alcohol is involved. He never blamed the victims, but rather said that being careful with alcohol is a PREVENTION method, a way of taking it into the victims hands and being proactive. Unfair, but a harsh reality. That said, the campaign he says they are planning is directed at victims, not offenders, whereas it seems a joint campaign targeting both would be most effective.
