Injustice On The Cheap

The quickest and least expensive way to have injustice isn't to convict and then incarcerate innocent men. That's expensive in direct costs and in restitution.

No, the cheapest and most common way to see injustice done is to let reports of serious crime like rape and sexual abuse languish. Better yet mark them as cases that don't require any further investigation.

Rape victims who are failed by the system will never be allocated payments as long as they aren't charged with a crime and aren't able to produce the DNA of their rapist. The lack of visibility doesn't mean this failure isn't happening repeatedly.

I wish this were something that didn't happen, but it is a frequent injustice which is often labeled by some as "our justice system simply protecting defendant rights."

This isn't how our system is supposed to work and we don't have to put up with it when it does happen.
