What's kind of funny about you mentioning the rape kits is that the autopsy process isn't much better. Autopsies are falsified all the time in many jurisdictions in the US. Some jurisdictions are better than others, but there are thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of people in prison because some medical examiner was too lazy to do his job, so he just fudged the work. What's my point? Not processing rape kits isn't evidence of rape culture any more than falsifying autopsies is evidence of murder culture. The problem is people are lazy, and power like this in the hands of a lazy person leads to bad results.
