More Phony Crimes

San Jose authorities report a regular flow of phony crime reports (note that the sexual assault director quoted in the story reports the debunked figure on the rate of false reporting in sex crimes).  In England a minister was convicted of filing a false report that he had been raped.  Shades of the runaway bride, in New Zealand police are seeking restitution for a false rape complaint.  Here's a different kind of phony crime: Police in Scotland faked a murder scene to persuade a criminal that an ordered hit had been carried out.
