A disturbing post from Philosopher Mouse.
Naturally, being rather naive in my 50s I had to DDG (Duck Duck Go) to discover what a rape kit was. I thought a rape kit, was, well, you can guess.
Apparently not. According to Wiki it is:
A sexual assault evidence collection kit, sexual assault forensic evidence (SAFE) kit, Sexual offense evidence collection (SOEC) kit or Physical Evidence Recovery Kit (PERK) kit, is a set of items used by medical personnel for gathering and preserving physical evidence following an allegation of sexual assault which can be used in rape investigation.

And read about approx 1 in 5 women in the US being raped – at least once – here. On that site you can also read that the arrest rate is 25%. Conviction rate isn’t mentioned.
