"A major reason for the nationwide (and continent-wide, I believe) failure to test rape kits is that the labs spend all their time and money testing drug samples, in order to lock up such horrendous people as medical cannabis users. The drug samples have to be tested quickly in order to determine whether there really is an illegal drug there, in which case they will get a conviction, keep their numbers up, and then get another Byrne grant or armoured personnel carrier. There is no money in prosecuting the rapes, so they can wait forever." -- Stephen Finlay, Balloon Juice, comments [thanks to [info] realinterrobang for quoting this earlier]
