As already quoted, rape kits are starting to be processed more readily in large metro areas, but still often sit on the shelves outside of those. There’s still a staggering backlog, years and sometimes decades old.

There is no need for me to comment on the false allegations of one woman. That fits into the 2–10% rate already stipulated to. That should be obvious.

“Other studies have figures in the same range. The FBI has put the number of “unfounded” rapes — those determined to be false after investigation — at 8%.”
