    City leaders revealed Friday the number of untested rape kits in the department’s backlog is nearly 10 times what was originally reported.

    Since last year, state law has mandated untested kits be sent in for analysis and a 2015 audit revealed 194 of those in Minneapolis. This summer, the Minneapolis Police Department Sex Crimes Unit discovered that figure wasn’t right.

    “They discovered that number was actually inaccurate. Right now, what I am reporting today, is that number is around 1,700,” Chief Medaria Arradondo said.

    The city is now pledging to have every one of those kits tested to ensure this never happens again.

    No movement since 2015. That's incredible.

    This is intentional.

    Although, pessimist that I am. They will be convicted and put on probation unless the Annie E. Casey Foundation has their way and they get rid of probation as well.

    Something like this isn't a mistake, it's policy,. Reporters need to quit accepting BS explanations.
