Adventures in Wandering

I'm just a lady who wants to travel, enjoys frivolity and being on the internet. I love life, I want to see what it has to offer me.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them

SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS POST

I’ve read a majority of these, I highly recommend Matched, The Uglies Series, Heir Apparent and all the classics (but especially Brave New World).

The Host is actually really good but INCREDIBLY slow to start, and it’s not awful in terms of characters like Twilight.

Seconded.  I especially enjoyed Fahrenheit 451 as far as the Classics.  I thought that The Host was a triumph compared to Twilight, especially because Stephanie got to do more of what she’s good at- world-building.
