I can tell you from experience that children don't normally lie to police about stuff like this and when they do its very easy to tell that they are.
When I was twelve I lied to the police and told them my Gym Teacher pushed me and I fell to the groud and bruised my hands. He was fired. I was a class hero.
It was the dudes first year and throughout the whole year he constantly took our PE away. Seriously, assigned us a two page paper weekly to be turned in. He had a different word for each letter of the alphabet, like C-was Cholesterol, and Z-was Zest. We had to write (as little kids) a two page paper every week, about the importance of these words...and he graded us strictly.
Then we only had PE 3 times a week as it was...every Friday we had to watch health videos. we only got two days of actual PE...and the guy was so serious it wasn't even fun. It wasn't even games we were playing, they were like fitness tests. All the previous years we had played flag tag, and other creative games...and had sections on football, basketball, socer, baseball, and what have you...oh and the kickball competitions...but with this guy we did nothing.
Then to top it all off, with only 2 months left of school he took away our recess. One kid (a foreign exchange student who barely spoke English) talked out in class. the coach said that if he didn't be quiet the whole class (combined of 3 6th grade classes) would lose recess. The kid didn't understand, and kept talking. Then the coach said that for every word spoken we would lose a day of recess. In the end we loss 47 days of recess.
Our punishment was that we had 15 minutes to eat our lunch then we had to check in at the outside basketball courst, there were about 100 spray painted yellow dots on the courts. we had to sit on the dots and for 45 minutes be quiet or lose another day of recess (which we lost every damn day because soebody yawned or coughed or something). Oh, and I live in Phoenix, AZ. It was April and May...it was 100+ degrees outside...no shade...no water.
Oh and we are 6th graders, so once May is over we are off to Jr. High...where there is no recess anymore. So he was taking the last two months of recess of the rest of our lives away from him.
So I garnered a plan, I told ten or so of my friends what I was going to do. I wrote a horrible paper on Zest (the last paper of the year) basically saying how Zest was a soap, and not a very good soap either. Coach called me in and asked why I did it, I tolf him because I thought the papers were stupid and he was a A-Hole. He yelled at me like I knew he would...I may sure to scream the loudest most offensive South Park like obscenitied filled insults at him...and as soon as he pointed his finger at me...like I knew he would I fell and started crying...then ran away in fright.
I told my mom he had pushed me, she called the police, I gave names of witnesses, I filed charges, I went to the witness stand, I got drilled by the lawyers, he lost his job, and went on probation.
The point of the long and prolly seeminglt usless story...children lie to police...and they can't tell!
Oh, BTW-The dudes name was coach Bummer.
