Harris unveils $1 billion plan to end rape kit backlog nationwide

Sen. Kamala Harris has announced a proposal to invest $1 billion to eliminate the rape kit backlog across the US. The plan would invest the money into states, allowing them to close their rape kit backlogs and prevent further buildups. The campaign linked this rollout to the news of Jeffrey Epstein. Earlier this week, Harris called for Labor Secretary Acosta to resign following the Epstein matter.

LOL, had to stop reading at the point where the article said the cost would be one billion. Now I'm no major party candidate for president, but wouldn't it be better to come up with a plan that aims to reduce rape.

First : if there is a demand, there won't be a backlog if you let the market do its thing. Second : rape kits are far from being a solution. The risk of a rapist reacting badly when finding such a kit on an often defensless victim can easily end in violence or in extreme cases murder!
