Why do men go to prison for false rape allegations if there is no evidence that he did do it?

    Because the law enforcements are too damn lazy to do their own research or don't have an IQ above two digits and therefore should not be in law enforcement in the first place. I am a woman and I am a full blown activist for people of both genders who have been wrongfully accused of anything. Especially sexual misconduct.

    Because law favours women so that they feel safe in male dominated society.

    Unfortunately juries are far more fallible than most would like to believe.

    Indeed, there is a reason why many want to exclude eye-witness testimony as unreliable. In many states, it is a matter of law that single eye-witness testimony is not sufficient to convict somebody of anything.

    But in a day-and-age where crime is thought to be on the rise and citizens are seen as doing their duties by getting more rapists off the streets, this outcome is not entirely unpredictable. 25 years ago (and even now), there are a lot of people out there who assume that if you are black, if you didn't commit the crime you are charged of, you did something worth the same penalty.

    Jurors are notorious for hearing what they want to hear.

    The prosecutor paints a terrible picture filled with horrid but (totally unsubstantiated) detail, produces a sympathetic withness who dramatically points a finger at the dregs of society (actually two men both in suits and ties listening to her lies), then he stands up and says "YOU MUST CONVICT". The defense can only stand up and say "These are nice guys and though I can't prove they didn't do it, only that you don't have enough evidence to convict."

    The affirmative directive wins. Everybody goes home feeling they have done their jobs. Everybody except the two falsely accused who are left wondering what the hell just happened.

    Should we be surprised? I don't think so. Should we work very hard to make sure it doesn't happen again?

    Hell yeah.

    Because of the feminist trope, "All men are rapists and should be put in prison and shot."

    If one tenth of one percent of women that are in prison were convicted without evidence, the hue and cry for massive reform would be deafening.

    But we're just men, and disposable.

    There is hardly ever any absolute evidence either way.

    If you demanded PROOF beyond reasonable doubt no one would ever be found guilty of rape.

    So that the standards are lower.

    Which also means that more mistakes are made.

    Given the harsh sentences that are awarded to those found guilty this is not a satisfactory situation.

    Yet turning a blind eye to rape is not satisfactory either.

    So do you have any better solution to the problem?

    Friend I think that it's high time that we develop a lie detector test that is accurate enough to use in court. And in the case of an allegation of rape where there is no sign of forced entry except the word of the female both parties need to take the test in court. and if it's found out that the woman is lying to maliciously put the man in prison that the man should go free and that the woman should do the time in prison that she was trying to get for the man.
