Now if you would add to this those disproven in court and a number that the police simply drops off their statistics due to a variety of reasons you would end up to a NEAR HALF OF ALL REPORTED RAPES TO BE FALSE.
    That figure was based on a polygraph test. A polygraph is basically a stress test, and you are asking rape victims about their rape. It's kind of hard to take a study like that seriously. I'd really like to see them ask the "proven true" victims to take the polygraph as a control, then this study might be more credible. I have to say, if you require polygraphs for someone reporting a rape, you can about guarantee that real rape victims reporting would plummet.

    An interesting point brought up by this study (that I've seen before) is that _80%_ of the false allegations involved a victim claiming she was raped but didn't really know the suspect. Compare to 75% of "proven" victims who knew their attacker. I think it's important to keep this in perspective, as the number of falsely accused are much lower than that figure would suggest.

    Regardless, this is a very important topic and we need more research here.

    More so the trauma he'd have to go through in jail, as it's pretty common for pedos and rapists to be 'targeted' by inmates that have their morals [ironically].
