Problematic Crime Alert: Watch out for Rapists, Ladies!

I just received this message to my campus email address:
BGSU Crime Alert Incident: Sexual Assault April 7, 2009 A female resident student of XXX Hall reported that she was sexually assaulted by a known subject in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 5, 2009. The assault occurred in her room after she had fallen asleep. Criminal charges against the suspect are pending. Individuals are reminded to be wary of individuals who may be friends of others but not well known to them. Do not allow someone to stay with you when you are unsure of their trustworthiness. Remember to always report suspicious activity to the BGSU Police Department at 419-xxx-xxxx
Dear BG police, I realize you're trying to be "helpful" by telling people to "be careful," but you're MISSING THE POINT. How can you tell girls, "Don't trust people you know or sort of know or that other people know or don't know"? How about a message that says, "There was a rape on campus. HEY, DUDES: STOP BEING RAPISTS." Fucking fuck, people. No rape culture, my ass.
