False accusation doesn’t specifically mean the story was made up*
It could be that someone was wrongly identified as a criminal
The truth about false accusations in the US is that we really don’t know for sure what the percent of false claims are. We have estimates from 2-10% with the FBI saying it is 8%
But this only includes cases that were PROVEN to be false by investigation. That means there are people in prison today who committed no crime but are being punished.
What is unnerving about the data is that one study suggest black men are more likely to be innocent of the crimes due to misidentification and due to implicit biases from victims.
As social justice groups and feminists rally for people to listen and believe perhaps we should but we should verify before moving forward.
