When New Jersey governor Chris Christie asked his doctor if he really needed lap band surgery, the doctor said:

"If you came in here with cancer and I told you that I had a 40-minute surgery that'd give you a 90 percent chance of cure, would you sign up?’"

He told him yes. The next question?

Stephanie Holten obtained an order of protection after her ex-husband threatened to "put a gun in my mouth and pull the trigger," she said.

He was served, but no one took his gun away. Nine hours later, he was at Holten's door threatening to shoot.

"He starts yelling at me, 'I was served a protection order today and I'm going to kill you. I'm going to shoot you,'" Holten recalled.

"I'm on my knees by the living room couch and he's standing over me. And I am looking at this gun barrel."

Wayne County, Mich., Prosecutor Kym Worthy has seen her share of grisly crime, but even she was shocked by a discovery in 2009 at a former police storage warehouse. There, stacks of dusty boxes were found on the shelves of the warehouse. The boxes contained thousands of untested rape kits, some decades old.

“What we were potentially looking at, at that time, was over 10,000 rape kits, representing over 10,000 cases where women had reported, whose lives and what had happened to them was sitting on a shelf and nobody cared. I was shocked, and I think I was kind of stunned -- and not too much stuns me,” Worthy said.
