    Long story short: Palin passed/wanted to pass (again I don't know if it happened) a law that would require rape victims to pay for the rape kit, rather than having it provided by the police. So the obvious consequence of this is that poor women would be unable to afford the rape kit, would have little or no strong physical evidence for their case, and that their rapists could get away with it. Palin was not content with merely the metaphorical rape of the poor, she wanted it to be literal too, I guess.

    And to boot, Alaska is already the rape capital of the US. Fun times.

    EDIT: Oh and obviously, I'm really sorry to hear that all happened, Seefs. It's just awful Forgot to mention it in my first post, since I wasn't sure if you were still in this thread. And it kind of goes without saying.

    I am wary of any place where the bears outnumber the humans.

    That sickens me so much. So wrong on many levels.

    You know what to do. Head down to the nearest convenience store and buy a can of the good 'ol scented spice.

    I hear Eau-de-Poivron is all the rage these days.

    Also, since most of the state is composed of Native Alaskan village who don't necessarily have that kind of money floating around.
    AND most of the victims are in said places...
    Oh, and as a bonus, we don't have stationary police/law enforcement up there.

    Seems rather similar to paying for your own ambulance ride or basic emergency/health care. Though, as one guy put it, you wouldn't charge a burglary victim for print-dusting or DNA retrieval, and I don't actually agree with charging people with the former two, either.
