US Bureau of Justice Statistics: Crime Against Persons With Disabilities, 2008-2010 – Statistical Tables

A report from the US Bureau of Justice. I have not started reviewing this material yet, and so may have more to post on in the future, but even the highlights are sadly instructive about the predictable impacts of social and societal devaluation on people in heightened vulnerability:

“In 2010, for both males and females the age-adjusted rate of violent crime was greater for those with disabilities than the rate against those without disabilities. The rate for males with disabilities was 23 per 1,000, compared to 16 per 1,000 for males without disabilities; for females with disabilities the rate was 26 per 1,000, compared to 15 per 1,000 for females without disabilities.”

    …and what does this to further entrench the role of Menace for people identified with disability in our society?
