Last night, Law & Order: SVU ran a Very Special Episode. It took on the subject of rape kit backlogs and starred Jennifer Love Hewitt. And let's just say, in true after-school-special fashion, it drove its point home.
As we've discussed before, unprocessed rape kits are a major issue and an ongoing source of frustration to all those who know how invaluable they are in catching rapists. But in case you weren't aware of the issue, this episode, "Behave," aimed to educate you. And while drama, dialogue and plausibility may have suffered somewhat in the process, by gum, the issue was addressed!
