Just wanted to pipe in here about a study conducted by the US AirForce a few years back.
The Airforce was very concerned about sexual harrassment scandels, the number of rapes in the service and things related. So they commisioned a third party to do a study to see what could be done.
The results were shocking.....They found that 60% of all the Rape accusations were FALSE....not didnt have enough evidence to prosecute, not that the woman said she didnt want to go through the ordeal and dropped charges, but instead the woman said she LIED and made a FALSE accusation in 60% of all the reported rape cases during the multi-year study period. The requirements necessary for a case to be considered a false accusation were so far above and beyond what is necessary for even a Conviction of a crime that their could be no doubt....The woman in question had to freely admit (not under lawenforcement interrogation) that she lied, then they required them to take a polygraph after the addmittance to verify they werent lying yet again.
The AirForce was so Stunned by the results that they asked the Third party to do two more identical studies, one in a major metropoliton civillian city and in a Rural Civillian City.
The Results were the same.
Here is link to a similar study that had similar results.http://www.anandaanswers.com/pages/naaFalse.html
Their numbers have a wider range starting lower and ending higher.
But the picture is plain to see. False Rape allegations are RAMPANT.
