"FBI reports from 1996 consistently put the number of "unfounded" rape accusations around 8%. In contrast, the average rate of unfounded reports for "Index crimes" tracked by the FBI is 2%. However, "unfounded" is not synonymous with false allegation. Bruce Gross of the Forensic Examiner says that:
This statistic is almost meaningless, as many of the jurisdictions from which the FBI collects data on crime use different definitions of, or criteria for, "unfounded." That is, a report of rape might be classified as unfounded (rather than as forcible rape) if the alleged victim did not try to fight off the suspect, if the alleged perpetrator did not use physical force or a weapon of some sort, if the alleged victim did not sustain any physical injuries, or if the alleged victim and the accused had a prior sexual relationship. Similarly, a report might be deemed unfounded if there is no physical evidence or too many inconsistencies between the accuser's statement and what evidence does exist. As such, although some unfounded cases of rape may be false or fabricated, not all unfounded cases are false."
So if your boyfriend or husband rapes you, but doesn't give you a black eye, the FBI is most likely to say it is unfounded and it goes into this statistical pile.
The judge in the Stubenville case, Thomas Lipps had this to say to teens on how to avoid the same fate. 'have discussions about how you talk to your friends; how you record things on the social media so prevalent today; and how you conduct yourself when drinking is put upon you by your friends." Note that he made no mention that maybe if they don't want to go to prison for sexual assault, they shoudl simply NOT SEXUALLY ASSAULT PEOPLE. Instead he said, don't get caught.
In the case of Rehtaeh Parsons, the police didn't even start pursuing the case until the media pressured them after her suicide attempt and death.
Tell me again that the American justice system prioritizes women.
