• Loser: Falsely reporting a crime is, itself, a crime. It's also an incredibly inconsiderate and costly thing to do.

Now she admits to having made the whole thing up, and police are charging her.
On a positive note, researchers say the poor judgment skills of teenagers tend to improve once they become adults.
