As the supreme law of the land, the US Constitution provides TWENTY-THREE fundamental rights for someone accused of a crime and ZERO fundamental rights for someone victimized by the same crime. Result: Victims of crime virtually have no legal standing in the United States Constitution.

In the 113th CONGRESS, a House Joint Resolution 40 proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to protect the rights of crime victims was introduced April 23, 2013.
