When Sexual Assault Victims Are Charged With Lying
Across the country, police have prosecuted women for false reports that turned out to be true.

Not sure that police prosecute. Still, I’m also pretty sure that whoever it is that does prosecute has also charged and tried allegations of sexual assault which turn out not to be true. You know, a fairly large portion of those accused of such do turn out to be innocent after all.
If only we had some system of deciding these troubled cases. You know, a system of looking at the evidence, some group of people who were asked to decide about it all, a set of rules for how such an investigation into the truth or not of such a claim are to be run?
It’s a real pity that no human civilisation has yet come up with something like that, isn’t it?
