rape kit charge story won't go away

I posted the following in a comment but I think I need to put it as part of the post now:
The facts are there. She fired the police chief. The new police chief tried did not want the city to pay for rape kits. So they tried to charge the insurance companies, who of course will not pay for all of it. Assuming you have insurance. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. The questionable issue is whether she personally promoted this. Only the most extreme troglodyte would push for this—after these crazy fascist rallies and her using a fascist quote in her convention speech, I would not put it past her. But regardless, this did happen on her watch and the only reason it stopped was because the state legistature passed a law. Imagine if someone had to pass a law so the police would not charge you for a murder investigation. THIS IS AN OUTRAGE. I am so tired of hearing how the story is debunked or we are just not sure.
