    If we as a society demand that our police be perfect,,, Why don't we demand it of ourselves?

    I do believe that if it is proven that someone lies like this, they should face serious consequences. Given the public nature of these claims, and the damage they can cause, I think the accuser should have to make a very public apology, in addition to jail time and fines - say, on National TV, in the center of a filled stadium.

    That said, though...this should only be used in cases where intentional and deliberate attempt to falsely accuse can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Given the he said / she said nature of a rape or harassment case, simply not being able to prove a crime was committed by a man should not result in this treatment, as it would most certainly discourage victims from confronting their abusers. I expect it would be a punishment rarely handed out.

    I AM serious about the fact that mere allegations can ruin a man's life, and lying women need to pay the price for that; a huge price. Like maybe even an alimony-like payment for life. Lying for the sake of getting even and just anger needs to have a very high penalty.

    I agree...but the death penalty?? C'mon, no one's ever going to take that seriously...hehe...and again, I have a hard time believing you do either, unless you have some super serious issues with women, or something. I mean, isn't lying in court perjury? What's the current punishment for that?

    Also, out of curiosity, are you of the mind that if she wasn't lying, the guy should be put to death for rape? I kind of expect you to say yes, so this is me giving you a way to not look like a rabid woman hater...

    Other than that, I agree with you completely. Where it can be proven that someone is deliberately out to ruin someone else with lies, there should be a heavy price. But let's not lose our minds completely, and suggest solutions so out there that people roll their eyes and walk away from the conversation altogether.

    But a year isnít nothing and this act will follow her for the rest of her life. Iím just glad the victims were vindicated before doing any time because it doesnít always end that way.
    Give her one year and make her register as a sex offender.

    Women that accuse an innocent man of fathering their child for the purpose of money should be put to death too...

    It's hard to know how harsh the punishment should be before it starts to discourage liars from ever coming clean.

    She is probably not smart enough to get a job if she ever does graduate.
