Another Fake Hate Crime Exposed

The media loves easy-peasy-to-write #Trend stories, but for some reason, they won't touch this very-well-documented #Trend.

After months of investigating, Ann Arbor police believe that two of three claims of possible hate crimes in November 2016 were false reports.

The three incidents were reported on Nov. 11, Nov. 12 and Nov. 15, 2016, in downtown Ann Arbor, near the University of Michigan.

...


Hate crimes lower in Michigan in 2015, but trend may be in jeopardy

Um, that's a headline that they threw in the middle of the article to get you to click on it, right?

How funny is it that in a story revealing that at least two of three reported hate crimes in Ann Arbor were false reports, they throw in the alarmist headline that hate crimes might be going up?

Back to the story:


Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige said after an exhaustive investigation, the inconsistencies with the reported victim's statements and lack of surveillance footage of the incident as reported led police to submit as request for criminal charges.

"Flat out, it did not happen," Lige said of the Nov. 15 report.

The woman who reported the incident - a 21-year-old Ann Arbor woman - could face a misdemeanor charge for falsely reporting a misdemeanor assault, but that will be decided after review by the county prosecutor's office.

She won't be charged. They never are.

By the way, there is in fact a rash of hate crimes going on, but the media absolutely refuses to mention it let alone denounce it, because they're on the side of political violence against the right people.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) says he is "outraged beyond words" after a left-wing mob knocked a 71-year-old staffer at his Huntington Beach office unconscious during a protest on Valentine's Day. Activists from a group called Indivisible OC said they were simply delivering Valentine’s Day cards when the "unfortunate" accident occurred.

...

The police were called to the scene, but made no arrests.

Of course not.

There is a very real question as to whether our police and other institutions are secretly permitting these violent black-bloc progressives to terrorize law abiding citizens.

[I]t is not clear to me how eager UC Berkeley is to apprehend those responsible for the attack [at the Milo Yiannopolous event]. (As I noted in my original post, authorities made several arrests that night, but they were not of any of the actual attackers.) And, as the always-informative Heather Mac Donald has recounted, at least some UC Berkeley faculty members did not seem particularly disappointed about Yiannopoulos being shut down. For example, Deborah Blocker, associate professor of French, cheerfully noted after the attack that "[m]ostly this was typical Black Bloc action, in a few waves --very well-organized and very efficient. They attacked property but they attacked it very sparingly, destroying just enough University property to obtain the cancelation order for the [Yiannopoulos] event and making sure no one in the crowd got hurt."

I hope UC Berkeley authorities will be able to announce some progress on the investigation soon....

UC Berkeley, and perhaps City of Berkeley, authorities need to vigorously move forward with their own investigations. Otherwise questions will linger about how is that more than 100 organized attackers can invade the campus without being called to account.

This is how you get vigilantism.
