It wasn’t so long ago that Italian neighborhoods in NYC and Chicago would have known how to deal with this problem. It would not have involved police but it would have made the coroner gag.

That is exactly why I hit this link, and was thinking the same thing.. I can only remember 1 incident as a kid that someone came into our neighborhood and attacked one of our Italian girls.. He wasn't heard from again.. poof gone.. The police didn't even look for him as I recall..

The lesson was loud and clear, Even the newspapers lamented the stupid choice of the rapist to think the outcome would be any different..

“Italian neighborhoods” in US cities were populated primarily by Sicilians, Neopolitans and Calabrese - regions that for centuries had different cultures, languages and governments from the Italy of Rome, Florence and Milan.
I love Daniel Greenfield, but this time I’ve got to say, as someone who spent a lot of my childhood and adolescenr summers in Italy, that even anundeveloped ten year old girl could not walk down a city street or take the tram or subway without being harassed and subjected to gross indecencies by adult men. Italian men. I will add that in my early twenties, traveling in Morocco, I ended up separating from friends and going on my own for long distances - in a country where the women wear veils - and I never encountered one moment of discomfort or danger from a man. Ditto when I made my way back through Spain. No sooner did I arrive in Italy, I had to fend off constant harassment just walking in the street and an attempted rape by a medical doctor. So perhaps it is something in the water in Italy that makes men abusive and violent.
