[Ed. – Anyone remember the last one of these that was valid?]
Last week I told you about a very dubious “hate crime” at Kansas State University that was being investigated by the FBI and local law enforcement in Manhattan, Kansas.
Yeah, it was a hoax, folks.
As we suspected, the owner of the vehicle, 21-year-old Dauntarius Williams, made the whole thing up. …
Last week the Kansas City Star trumpeted another alleged hate crime at a predominantly black church without adding any critical context. In that case, someone had started a small fire and defaced the front doors and windows with racist graffiti. The Star reported that the graffiti included “an ethnic slur directed at black people, the letters ‘KKK’ and what appeared to be an attempt at making a swastika.”
The culprit turned out to be a black church maintenance worker who was under the influence of drugs at the time, and who had faked the hate in an attempt to cover up his burglary.
