It designates someone as a victim before the defendant has been charged with a crime, and doesn’t fully define who a victim actually is. In addition, the defendant’s guilt is assumed.
Given most defendants are likely to be minorities, this then taps into issues of racism. Without new funds coming into the judiciary, reallocation of funds is the most likely way to cover any new costs. Money will be spent on tending to victims’ requests INSTEAD OF all funds being dedicated to figuring out whether defendants are guilty and what kind of sentencing is fair. This opens the door for victims to object to plea bargains, creating even greater burdens on an already overloaded judicial system. It’s not a good idea legally or financially.
