Shouldn't "Victim" Go in Quotation Marks?

Very interesting, and I suppose to some, sad story.

Excerpts from this story:

>>The boy, who is now 16, told police that over the next 18 months he and McCallum had intercourse every other day for a total of "approximately 300 times," according to a police report filed today in Brockton District Court.

>>"We truly believe that this person was a predator," said Chief David Majenski of the Abington Police Department, speaking at a press conference. "I would hope there are no other victims, but I certainly wouldn't rule it out."

Uh, not to be insensitive to the plight of this young man, but again, I think we're using the term "victim" a little loosely here.

I've been the victim of really delicious pizza before.

My heart goes out to the boy.
