Great piece in Jezebel about rape culture

This article in Jezebel, about rape culture in the student community of Missoula, US, and the attitudes from local police that support it, was written thoughtfully and with effort put into the research. The reporter, Katie J M Baker, approached it in  adirect but nuanced way, and managed to disntinguish her own feelings and thoughts from the interview subjects. This is really hard to do when writing about justice and violence against women, particularly sexual assault.
