Did you know that Alaska has the highest rape rate of any state in the U.S.? And that’s among a population of about 670,000 people (48% of that is women)!
That fun fact comes to you from this story: Sarah Palin’s town, Wasilla, required rape victims to pay for their own inspection kits.
How could anyone justify charging victims for the physical evidence-collecting kits of their violent sexual attack? Simple, really: “evidence” is just another word for “souvenir.” You know, like those photos on roller coasters.
