Rape Kits in Cali May Continue To Go Untested

A while back on Care2 I wrote about the backlog of rape kits in California that have gone untested.

It was so shocking to me that evidence with the potential of putting rapists behind bars was just sitting in labs without any urgency. With so many women victimized each year this is completely unjust not to mention stupid!

Now it seems that a budget deficiet in Cali could delay or stop the testing altogether. So women continue to be raped and rapists continue to walk free. Someone explain to me how any of this makes sense?
