    RAPING THE PUBLIC!

         I made an extra strong cup of coffee and sat down this morning determined to understand LNP’s article, “How many untested rape kits are there in Lancaster County?” (click here).
         I read the article quickly once and my immediate response was, “huh?” I determined I needed to fully understand what this article was stating so I took my coffee and despite the terrible graphics I concentrated on every sentence.
         My conclusion – reporter Lindsey Blest is playing games and never answers the initial question. From the article:     Blest never tells us if the 28 backlogged kits from 2016 have been tested! Never!

         And in her chart, for Lancaster City alone there were 15 that “Baseline inventory of sexual assault kits not yet submitted for testing on September 7, 2015″ and 14 that were “Number of sexual assault evidence kits awaiting testing.”
         She never states if those have been tested – if the backlog has been cleared! She states, “there were no backlogged rape kits in Lancaster County in 2017” which is great for 2017 but she never answers about the backlogged kits from previous years.
         This is terrible and deceptive reporting and writing!
