The method a deceptive person can use to put the blame on another for a bad thing they have done thus immediately shifting the blame to the other person "scapegoat" they choose. It's a trick your supposed friend or acquaintance uses to manipulate the outcome of their dirty deeds! It's always someone you know.
All of these people used Reversism to throw the suspicion off of them:
Mike stole his girlfriend Angie's bank deposit for work from her car at the arcade. He then blamed me for stealing it since I was at Papa Jacks playing pinball at the same time. He even pulled a shotgun on me at a party later further trying to reinforce his trick in front of several people. All because Angie and I were becoming too close.
Johns apartment was ripped off by himself and he sold his own fathers M16 that was a gift so he could hide it before he went to prison. He blamed guess who? All because he and his brother ripped me off for 1k on a crappy deal and I told everyone he was a rip off!
Dennis the pyro burned down an apartment building because Tami and I caught him and his friend lighting the adjacent building on fire beforehand and we told the firefighters it was him. He had his criminal friend Rob; who I caught breaking into my fathers house claim I tried to set his apartment on fire after I told everyone he was a rip off. They tried to frame me for arson and even had a witness that claimed they saw me there. Even though I was entertaining several friends at my parents house that night. They really had these fire investigators convinced too.
