Almost as misleading the mainstream media

The line "no changes to law" should be first paragraph. All this change means is that the Feds will use simple addition to add up the reports the states send them - instead of adding and then subtracting out cases that didn't meet their old definition.

You're not getting it, are you?

The Feds define what the States can, and cannot, report.

So your "thesis" is fundamentally flawed; the States don't send them data on what the FBI does not class as rape.
