There needs to be some kind of punishment for people

This is the problem with the world. People wanting more government. Can't you see that is the root of the feminists, th eSWJ, the PC's every group wants more punishment for the other group. We're being divided and conquered while we ask for more and more punishments, restrictions and control.

Well something has to be done. Right now, people can make these false accusations with little to no consequences for the damage it does to the accused and their family. Damage that can never be undone. I'm all for other ideas.

The safest way then is to withhold the names of the accused until they are sentenced. The easiest way to solve the problem of accusers is to defend "innocent until proven guilty", and stop making a public spectacle of the accused.

Because doing this isn't only moral ruin but the perfect pretext to give total and complete field day to feminists.

Unlike if this happened in the United States, I suspect this won't go unpunished in the UK; they seem to be ahead of the curve when it comes to this kind of nonsense.

The vast majority of the convictions in the last five years, 98 out of 109, involved prosecutions for perverting the course of justice – which carries a maximum life jail term

Oh god the justice boner is so large right now.

The main difference being that those groups want people arrested for offending them. A false rape accusation can and will ruin someone's life, even after the charges are dropped. People are still going to associate you with rape, whether it was real or not. Rape is a serious crime, and those that file false charges on it should be punished in some way.
