PA - Shannon Schieber, 23, raped & murdered, Philadelphia, 7 May 1998
Police in Pennsylvania's largest city learned a hard lesson when they dismissed rape victims. A young woman was murdered by a man whose earlier rape victims had been ignored.
The man who raped and strangled Shannon Schieber on May 7, 1998, had previously attacked four women in her neighborhood. But police were oblivious to a pattern because they had dismissed the first two complaints as not being credible sexual crimes - a practice similar to that defended by St. Louis police as the proper way of handling what they consider questionable cases.

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
