2. Perhaps if they allocated the funds to run the DNA of the
million rape kits just gathering dust on a shelf they could solve more rapes. They wait until they have a suspect before they run the kit.

A few years ago in my town we had a serial rapist on the loose. Finally, after nothing good happening for a couple of years a group of activist women demanded the city do more. They assembled an investigative team that included local and state officials. The city made a big PR deal out of it. Anyway, they finally processed the kits and got a hit in like five minutes and solved the crimes.

This reality is a national disgrace. Why don't our women in congress refuse to go to work until the funds are allocated for processing all of the evidence from the get go? If men were the usual rape victims unlimited funds would be available.
