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.
The full Wiki link is here
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.
Chicks fighting! Woo-hoo. Nails sharpen. Polish chipped. Lipstick smeared.
Pulpits and iPads blazing.
Can it get any better? (Spill it. Aren’t men on both sides secretly “energized”?)
The smug self-righteous against the smug intellectuals. The cackling and cursing deafening.
So much anguish and outrage.
(Guess that Valentine’s lovey-dovie feeling didn’t last too long?)
Unfortunately, some Houston area women are left holding more thorns than rose petals – and wondering why some that outrage hasn’t been directed towards their situations.
It’s a nasty little secret.
No, not the human trafficking that’s all over the media. But it’s just as bad. Maybe worse.
It was hidden, but tried to swim to the surface in 2009. (So they ordered an investigation!)
