  • Each of them should sue her for defamation of character. And she should have to reimburse the cost of the investigation.

      Apparently this is an increasing trend: https://www.foxnews.com/us/hate-crimes-and-hoaxes-10-campus-stories-debunked-in-2017

      Absolutely she should be sued, but the school and the kids. And she should be prosecuted and expelled.
  • Yes, but people are falsely accused of far worse on a daily basis, and it hardly makes local news.
    • Archie Bunker
      So it's okay because there's much worse? Shouldn't she be punished?

      Sorry, I thought I already answered that, but I wasn't clear. Yes, she should be expelled, and then some. She should be punished for the false accusation in two ways: 1. for lying and 2. for the harm she caused these boys. But, likely nothing will happen to her. This sort of crap happens every day, but where the stakes are much higher. If we can't fix how false accusations work for capital crimes, I don't expect it to play out any more just at the elementary school level.
    • Archie Bunker
      You're right. Personal accountability is out the window, a'la Smollett.
  • Nope. there is no reason for her to be. The school should have better supervision of its kids too.
    • Archie Bunker
      The supervision seems to be fine since nothing actually happened other than her alleging it did. So you think that it's all okay she made it up and everyone should just move on?

      You're confused. It's the lapse of supervision up to that situation and beyond that that caused the escalation. Only the kids truly know if something happened or had been happening and the girl lashed out as a result. By not supervising the kids, the school was at fault and it's probably the school that asked the kid to redact her accusation to avoid further scrutiny of their lapses.
