There is a story out there of a woman/girl who says she was attacked by an Obama supporter because she was a McCain supporter. Ugh. Whatever. But now it appears that the story is made up. Whether it is or not, the politics, I do not care.
The question I have is, just how much trouble is a person in when they report to the police a crime that was made up? What will happen to this girl? What would happen to someone else if it is a low key story with no political ramifications? It seems a lot of these stories are made up to make news of some sort. What happens to those people?
