YOUR TURN: Unprocessed rape kits

(WMC-TV) - This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Janice Taff. Taff is one of many people expressing disgust with the latest revelation regarding the unprocessed rape kits at the Memphis Police Department. Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong informed the city council that more than 12,000 rape kits have not been processed. That's six times more than originally disclosed. Taff is upset, but she's not blaming Director Armstrong. In her words:

Sad this was hidden under every Police Director. I am proud Armstrong is not a public relations magnet. He just does his job and exposes the ugly and the good. He did not create this mess but he is the one having to deal with it. All of these women deserve justice and it is sad how long this was allowed to be business as usual. How many of these, if processed, could have stopped the next one from happening?

That's Janice Taff's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
