PBS NOW On Rape Kit Backlog

The full episode of PBS NOW called Justice Delayed (about 25 minutes) is online now. The show begins by focusing on stranger rapes, but thankfully highlights that by processing rape kits from acquaintance rapes investigators can get evidence that this type of rapist can be a serial rapist.

Maria Hinojosa has a related post up at Huffington Post.

The episode highlights the backlog in LA, but they do make it clear that this is by no means a problem in this one area. They also mention improvements in the way New York and one of those improvements is to test all rape kits.
