Detroit’s 11,341 forgotten rapes

enoughsaidFor the last 30 years, the city of Detroit has been storing rape kits without testing them.  While dozens of other cities have discovered untested rape kits, Detroit is unique in that it has recently been in financial difficulty and even filed for bankruptcy.

A group of Detroit businesswomen formed a group called Enough SAID (Sexual Assault in Detroit) to raise money for testing.

So far, 652 people suspected of being serial sexual assault offenders have been identified, and 27 have been convicted.
