Well, another fake hate-crime exposed.
18-year-old [Yasmin Seweid] told the New York Daily News that she had just left an event on campus Thursday night when three men approached her on an uptown 6 subway near the 23rd Street stop.
They yelled President-elect Donald Trump’s name over and over, and said to her, “Look, it’s a fucking terrorist,” Seweid said in a Facebook post on Friday.
She said they also yelled, “Get the hell out of the country!” and, “You don’t belong here!”
But investigators who spent significant NYPD resources trying to verify her story were unable to find any witnesses to the incident or video that could corroborate her story, sources said.
Seweid finally recanted Tuesday, saying she misguidedly made up the tale to get attention because she was having issues with her family at home.
She was expected to be charged with filing a false report — which could range from a misdemeanor to a felony charges — late Wednesday afternoon, sources said.
A source explained that, given the amount of time detectives spent chasing the phony story, and how politically charged the allegation was, the police and prosecutors felt compelled to charge her, particularly since they said they had given her numerous opportunities to come clean earlier in the process. She repeatedly refused to tell the truth for weeks, they added.
I keep hearing screams about the increase in hate crimes since Trump was elected. And, I also actually see the increase in hate crime hoaxes. In fact, I’m wondering if any of these recent allegations of hate crimes are actually real.
Can anyone find me a valid and verified report of a hate crime committed since Trump was elected?
