Here you go:

A Culture of False Allegations: How VAWA Harms Families and Children

Press Release:
One Million False Allegations of Domestic Violence Each Year, Report Finds

The organization that put these out is called "Respecting Accuracy In Domestic Abuse Reporting" (RADAR).

If I were you, I would be careful to avoid making any public assertions of fact based on the above report, simply because the source -- RADAR in this case -- is an advocacy organization and therefore by definition is biased. (You wouldn't trust the Tobacco Institute's reports about the safety of tobacco, would you?)

So if you do quote RADAR's report, you should be careful to describe it as "indicative" or "suggestive", rather than "authoritative" or "dispositive".

RADAR is biased towards men, because men have a more powerful voice. One simply need to look at our government and businesses to see that. And gentle readers don't you just LOVE how Knock Kncok gets around the fact that this group is for men?

Comments please! (oh and those from mysogynistic men will be deleted without question or comment, unless they are just so dam good and they create another post). Oh but that would be nearly all of them lol.....
