When a woman is caught cheating by her husband and makes the weak claim of rape, she's the only one many people blame when the husband shoots the other man in the head as that man is driving away.
Shooting someone leaving the scene is not self-defense nor is it defending your wife. It's taking the law into your own hands and deciding you have the right to be judge, jury and executioner. Yet she was the only one indicted by the grand jury. Few people take the time to consider what would have happened if she hadn't lied. Maybe 2 people would have been shot dead instead of one.
The criminal justice system doesn't support the death penalty for adultery, but many people do view murder as a justified response to unfaithfulness.
However, in this case the facts are far different from any of the stereotypes about false rape claims.
When deputies arrived at the home, a woman told police [Nicolas] Tamborini made her report a consensual encounter she had with another man as a rape because he was upset with her, Capt. John Robertson said. Before deputies arrived, Tamborini smashed the woman’s computer and antique desk, he said. “He also would not let her leave the residence.”
The man was charged with felony vandalism, false imprisonment and making a false report of a crime.
Those who rant about all those dishonest women aren't likely to say a word about this case.
Update: For those who claim that no boys or men ever make a false claim that they are the victim of rape, here's a story which shows that claim to be a false one:
Charges against a Sandy woman accused of raping a then-16-year-old boy were dropped Monday after the alleged victim said he made up the story. [...]
The teen, who was dating the woman's daughter, claimed the woman, now 54, drugged him and then had sex with him. The incident allegedly went unreported until the teen's mother found a pair of underwear the boy had kept under his bed since the incident, according to police. The underwear was sent off for testing, and the woman's DNA was found on it, according to Sandy police. On Monday, 3rd District Judge Royal Hansen agreed with a motion filed by the the Salt Lake District Attorney's Office to dismiss the case, and charges of rape and forcible sodomy were tossed out.
I'm always skeptical when I hear an alleged rape victim isn't believed or recants (since real victims can be pressured into recanting), but the admission of a lie in this case seems to be credible.
