How testing rape kits would have helped women in writer’s family, and others. One out of every six women will experience attempted or completed rape. One out of every thirty-three men will also experience it. It is so common that sadly, most of us know friends or loved ones who have been violated. We have seen DNA convict perpetrators as well as free those who were wrongly incarcerated. So why is it that we have such an incredibly large quantity of untested rape kits in North Carolina? The NCGA must allocate resources toward solving these crimes and preventing future crimes.
