    I'm not surprised, unfortunately.

    This case smelled funny from the get go.

    It doesn't change the fact that there are definitely those out there that would assault someone based on sexual orientation, but it does confirm that there are people crazy enough to do this to themselves.

    The evidence against her looks pretty damning. She bought the twist ties and knife at a hardware store earlier in the week!!

    Lincoln Hate Crime all falsified, arrest warrent issued

    Arrest warrant issued for alleged hate crime victim
    By JONATHAN EDWARDS / Lincoln Journal Star

    The woman who told police she was the victim of a brutal hate crime in Lincoln last month will be arrested on suspicion of lying to police.

    The Lancaster County Attorney issued an arrest warrant Tuesday morning for Charlie Rogers, who is charged with misdemeanor false reporting.

    Rogers, 33, told police three masked men broke into her apartment on July 22, tied her up, carved anti-gay slurs into her skin and tried to light her house on fire.

    After binding her with zip ties, she told police, one of the men held her down while another cut derogatory words into her arms and abdomen, sliced a cross into her chest and cut the front of her thighs and shins.

    Rogers said the attackers rolled her onto her stomach, pinning her arms under her body. Then, she said, they cut her buttocks, the back of her thighs and the back of her right calf.

    The reported attack galvanized Lincoln and made national news. Thousands of people from Lincoln and Omaha attended rallies and donated money to support Rogers after the attack.

    Now, police say, they believe she made it all up.
    Feel sad for her, and sad for all of the people who tried to help her, and lastly, sad for all of Lincoln.

    Kind of amazing at this late stage of the C.S.I. crime drama era that people don't have a good concept of just how good police are in investigating crimes.

    You are actually pretty hard pressed to find a homosexual who hasn't been assaulted at one point or another in their lives. Doesn't excuse this idiocy of course, but I would certainly not take this particular opportunity to gloss over decades--hell, centuries--of aggressive discrimination against homosexuals.

    Exactly my reaction as well.

    It just struck me like the Seinfeld episode... '"Not that there is anything wrong with it" this idea that we have to always affirm things is amusing to me.

    Except for stupid people and just pure racist or hate mongers of course people get beat up or killed because of there skin color, gender,sexuality, weight, looks, religion, someone who looks rich in a bad neighborhood, it happens to all people that should go without saying.

    Such a tragic story. Certainly the retraction won't make national news in the same way the accusation did.
