According to the United States of America’s Federal Bureau of Investigation, false criminal allegations are reported for the following reasons:
- Mental Illness/Depression
- Financial Profit
It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that the rights of everyone are upheld and that the innocent are protected. Everyone is innocent until they are proven guilty. When someone is convicted, or their life is destroyed by false allegations. That is as equal a crime as the one they were falsely accused of. Humanity needs to strive to hold individuals putting forth false testimony just as accountable to the law as the laws they testified or communicated publicly were broken.
