Normally hate hoaxers tell their malevolent lies secure in the knowledge that even if their fraud is revealed, there will probably be no consequences for them. After all, they were only trying to raise awareness about the sort of prejudice that would be really awful if it actually existed. Especially on college campuses, where hate hoaxes have reached epidemic proportions, authorities take the view that the important thing is that the hoaxers mean well. But things turned out differently for belligerent hoaxers at SUNY Albany, who face the following charges:
Ariel Agudio, 20, of Huntington, N.Y.: Assault in the Third Degree, Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third Degree, Attempted Assault in the Third Degree, Attempted Criminal Mischief in the Fourth Degree.
Alexis Briggs, 20, of Elmira Heights, N.Y.: Assault in the Third degree.
Asha Burwell, 20, of Huntington Station, N.Y.: Assault in the Third Degree, Falsely Reporting an Incident in the Third Degree.
The Falsely Reporting charges are their reward for trying to spin their sociopathic behavior into a hate hoax.
According to police, the assault charges are based on evidence which shows that the three defendants physically assaulted another passenger on the bus, a 19-year-old woman from Congers, N.Y. The false reporting charge stems from evidence which shows that the initial complaints made by Burwell and Agudio that claimed they were victimized, were false.
Evidence can take all the fun out of a hate hoax:
The charges were issued after evidence was gathered during a three-week investigation that included interviewing 35 passengers on the bus, reviewing videotape from 12 security camera videos on the bus, reviewing four videos taken by passengers on their mobile phones, reviewing videotape police from the university’s surveillance system, examining UAlbany building access records, and reviewing audio recordings. …
Evidence indicates they were the aggressors in the physical altercation, and that they continued to assault the victim despite the efforts of several passengers to stop them, police said. …
Investigators also found no evidence to support the initial allegations that the three women were targeted in any manner due to their race. There was also no evidence that racial slurs were directed toward them.
Nonetheless the hoax inspired a noisily self-righteous Black Lives Matter rally on campus.
UPD Chief J. Frank Wiley notes:
“I especially want to point out that what happened on the bus was not a ‘hate crime.’ We spent a great deal of time carefully reviewing the audio recordings to determine whether any racial slurs were used. The only person we heard uttering racial epithets was one of the defendants.”
The defendants are black, and only white people can commit hate crimes, because according to progressive ideology only white people can be racist. Ergo, no hate crime.
However, once moonbats get their teeth into a bone, they do not let go. Barks community activist Alice Green:
“What might have happened, are there reasons someone perceived this to be a racist incident. I think all those things need to be discussed. Nothing is cut and dry here.”
Sorry to differ, Alice. But your supposedly put-upon victims are bestial crybully liars. That is cut and dry.
A falsely accused student was forced to flee the university in fear for his life after the brother of one the hoaxers, Tyreek (no really, that’s his name) Burwell of the San Diego Chargers, threatened to kill him. UAlbany President Robert J. Jones owes him free tuition for a year for issuing an inflammatory statement assuming the hoax to be legit before he had any clue what had really happened.
The defendants will be relieved to know that even if they are found guilty, at least they still get to keep their spot on the Hate Hoax List.
