There may be more to it than that, Doss. In psychology, it is well
known that some people have a "victim mentality." If we all truly
communicate telepathically, then it just could be that a victim
sends out thoughts about wanting to die, and these are picked
up by a would-be mugger or murderer who is then subconsciously
drawn to the victim and commits the crime. Same could be true
with rape. It is a possibility worth considering, but whatever the
case, the karma is all the same, and the telepathy is more in the 
nature of methodology. In each case, we have to ask "why" such
and such a person? Why that night? Why me? etc.
