False Accusations RUIN lives, and you should maybe not be jailed for it!!!
Can you imagine living in a world where you were presumed innocent until proven guilty?
False allegations are far from victimless crimes. With a few high-profile exceptions, false allegations usually do not lead to wrongful conviction of the accused. However, they may lead to other serious consequences, such as pre-trial detention, loss of employment, intervention by social services, or death threats and other social stigma. False allegations often have a racial dimension and may disproportionately target black people. Worse still, false accusers collectively victimize all genuine victims of sexual assault by eroding their credibility. [LINK]
The problem is that you can't just make a special-pleading case for just one type of crime without making it apply to all accusations for all crimes.
Such a policy would effectively make it impossible for any poor person to accuse a wealthy person or corporation of any crime.
Instead of trying to punish people for seeking justice, why don't we better serve the accused in order to prevent their lives being destroyed.
Would you agree that people should be treated as de-facto innocent (not incarcerated or slandered in the press or inconvenienced in any way) until they are proven guilty in a court of law?
