    What's really sad is that it only takes an "accusation" to cause a person's life to be ruined. Who cares if it's even true?!? Don't let the truth get in the way of a great story! As a school administrator, I had a child make an accusation against me that I sexually abused him. On the dates he accused me, I was out of town and had proof. It turned out he was scared of his father "beating" him for a bad report card. So he made up a story about me so his dad would be sympathetic. Fortunately, my nightmare from hell only lasted two weeks until the kid told the truth. That didn't make the news after the fact. There's no evidence and everything "supposedly" happened at school. What a great job the Austin Police Department did of rushing to judgment in a case with no evidence other than a statement. Wow!
