Lesbian who reported 'hate crime' attack staged incident, Nebraska police say

A Nebraska "hate crime" that targeted an openly gay woman and that triggered responses from candlelight vigils locally to Facebook postings of support nationwide was staged by the alleged victim, authorities said Tuesday as they charged the woman with lying to police.

Charlie Rogers -- a former basketball player for the University of Nebraska who identifies herself as lesbian -- told police that three masked men entered her home on July 22, stripped her, tied her down, and carved homophobic slurs into her body before attempting to set her and the house on fire.

But the Lincoln Police Department said Tuesday that "the physical evidence conflicted with Charlie Rogers' version of events" and that "extensive investigation revealed numerous inconsistencies."

Rogers was arrested Tuesday, police said.

Her attorney, Brett McArthur, told CNN Tuesday night that Rogers had agreed as part of an arrangement to turn herself in, in exchange for a personal recognizance bond.

"She did not have to post any money" to be released, McArthur said, adding that his client pleaded not guilty to the charge of lying to police.

I thought this had the hallmarks of a staged incident when I first saw it. Someone that hates someone enough to carve messages into their skin don't usually stop there.

Everyone on this site knew that she was a phony the first instant the story broke.

They will still support her because she was “just trying to get the message out” or some such nonsense

As Ann Coulter said “there is not an epidemic of conservative hate crimes, there is an epidemic of liberal hate crime hoaxes”

The MSM just can’t cover up the fake. So much of it abounds, too.
