Real World: Allentown

Crime statistics
In 2006, the known criminal offenses in Allentown, as reported to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation, included around 800 violent crimes and over 7,000 property crimes. With the exception of aggravated assault, Allentown exceeded national averages in all criminal categories. Cases of arson in Allentown were nearly double the national average[1]. Other crimes in Allentown that substantially exceeded national averages were robbery, murder and forcible rape.

And that's what happens when Allentonians stop being polite, and start being real.

Forcible Rape? Isn't that like Rape Rape? That's the whole point of rape right? Take it by force?

I think it's meant to be in contrast to unforcible rape. Like, no gorilla's in Allentown got raped because that's basically unforcible rape.
