A sixth-grade student who last week accused three classmates of forcibly cutting her dreadlocks has admitted she made up the allegations, according to her family and the school principal.
Amari Allen, a 12-year-old African-American, had accused three white boys in her grade at Immanuel Christian school, in Springfield, Virginia. She said they held her down on a playground during recess, covered her mouth, called her insulting names and used scissors to cut her hair.
