The drug dealer and the rapist are the two most evil criminals.

The drug dealer murders the mind, the family and the community. He is uncaring and has no regard for the damage he leaves behind as he accumulates his lucre.

The rapist is even worse. He murders the body, the mind, the family, the community and- more devastatingly -the soul. It takes years and even decades for rape survivors to recover from their ordeal. Sometimes they never do. The wound remains raw for an entire lifetime.
