Obviously depends on the scenario, but in the most commonly committed rapes, the victim doesn't have a fear of death. Also, the attacker is generally a single man who can be reported and jailed.

While a black family who have a cross burned in their yard have a very reasonable fear that they may all be burned to death or shot by their racist neighbors, and that the police are in on it. Today, it's even more streamlined - all their racist neighbors have to do is call the police, and each encounter is a dice roll against death because everyone now knows the police will kill on a hair trigger.
