UPDATE: Black Man Who FAKED Hate Crime & Wrote Anti-Black Graffiti on His Own Car Will NOT BE CHARGED
Well, it seems that this might be the 1,000th time in the past year that a leftist was discovered to be behind yet another “hate crime.” There were two black University of Albany students that hoaxed everybody into thinking they were victims of a race-based hate crime. There was the other black guy who was caught spraying swastikas on UMD Campus. There was the white “anti-gay” man who burnt down and LGBT center… who then turned out to be a gay former member of the center. There have been so many hate crime hoaxes this year that Gateway Pundit has had to occasionally publish summary lists – that almost seems to be out of date the second they’re published because the left KEEPS ON HATE CRIMING THEMSELVES. It’s exhausting how much they seem to hate themselves.
Anyway – now we have another one. A black Kansas man has confessed to having put racist graffiti on his own car, parked it outside Kansas State University, and then filed a false police report – he claimed it was a “Halloween prank that got out of hand” after both local and FBI investigations started.
He should be arrested, right? Filing a false report is against the law and punishable by incarceration. Well… not according to the crack head in charge of the Rilley County police department who claimed, “The incident maybe wasn’t real — the emotions were.” Yes, you heard that right… they are still taking this false hate crime that wasted thousands in taxpayer money as a “learning experience”
A black Kansas man has admitted he put racist graffiti on his own car as a Halloween prank that got out of hand, police said Monday.
Photographs posted on social media Wednesday showed the car covered with racial slurs against blacks and messages that included “Go Home,” ”Date your own kind,” and “Die.”
The vehicle, covered in graffiti scrawled with washable paint, was parked Wednesday at an apartment complex near Kansas State University and the incident fueled racial tensions at the university and in the community.
An emergency meeting of the Black Student Union called that evening drew concerned administrators and community leaders as well as students. Kansas State held a Facebook Live event the next day with worried parents. The university stepped up patrols on campus. The FBI opened a civil rights investigation into a possible hate crime.
But on Monday the Riley County Police Department issued a news release saying the 21-year-old owner of the vehicle, Dauntarius Williams, had told investigators that he was responsible for the graffiti.
Authorities concluded that charging him for filing a false report would “not be in the best interests of the citizens” of Manhattan.
Even the possibility of a hate crime has a big impact on the fabric of daily lives, and “we want to acknowledge that people felt anger and pain as a result of pictures and words that they saw,” Kansas State University spokesman Jeff Morris said Monday in a phone interview. “Those are very real responses.”
Given the climate in the country, the university plans to continue its stepped-up patrols and its review into whether more cameras are needed to enhance safety on campus.
“The incident maybe wasn’t real — the emotions were,” Morris said.
Police said Williams was “genuinely remorseful and expressed sincere regret” that his actions resulted in negative media attention, and the agency issued a statement from him in their release in which he apologized to the community.
“The whole situation got out of hand when it shouldn’t have even started,” Williams said. “It was just a Halloween prank that got out of hand. I wish I could go back to that night but I can’t. I just want to apologize from the bottom of my heart for the pain and news I have brought you all.”
Police said they recognized the difficulties the case created.
“While Williams’ mistake had a decidedly negative impact on the community, please recognize that he, like many of us when we were young, is a young man who made a mistake and is now doing his best to own up to it,” said Brad Schoen, director of the Riley County Police Department.
