The backlog is a decades-long police failure that they are now unjustly taking credit for fixing. DNA only counts when it is tied to other DNA found in CODIS after years of not arresting rapists, apparently. Victims voices are never enough unless its a 12:1 victim to rapist ratio. Learn about how the backlog harms cases, victims, and keeps communities vulnerable and unsafe. You can learn more at Endthebacklog.org and the documentary "I Am Evidence", from where some of the facts and examples used throughout can be found. The Joyful Heart Foundation is also mentioned throughout, an excellent non-profit that leads the End The Backlog program.
