Crimes Against People with Disabilities–New Statistical Report

Have you wondered how people with disabilities fare as victims of nonfatal violent crime?  Do perpetrators see them as easy targets resulting in greater victimization?  Or do the cold hearts of the perps thaw enough to leave them alone?  Now you can see the numbers and make your own conclusions, but the numbers aren't encouraging.  Crime Against People with Disabilities, 2007 is the first estimate of victimization experiences of persons with disabilities measured by the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), which is administered by the U.S. Dept. of Justice's Bureau of Justice Statistics.  It includes comparisons to victimization experiences of persons without disabilities.
