According to research from Bowling Green State University , police officers in the US were charged with forcible rape 405 times between 2005 and 2013.

"There are no comprehensive statistics available on problems with police integrity," the report says, and no government entity collects data on police who are arrested.

"I have to think it's a much worse problem than my data suggests," said Stinson, himself a former police officer.

Streaming Exclusives Will Drive Users Back To Piracy And The Industry Is Largely Oblivious

Authored by

Studies have suggested that every broadcaster on the planet will likely have their own streaming service by 2022.

But instead of going back to cable, back in March we noted how users are just as likely to consider piracy.
