20 years later, Tawana Brawley has turned back on the past
New York Daily News ^ | October 12, 2012

CLAREMONT, Va. - Many people in this rural town of just 300 know the story of Tawana Brawley, but most have no idea her family lives among them.

Brawley - whose claims of being raped by a "white cop" shocked the city 20 years ago - has long since turned her back on New York. She changed her name, converted to Islam, moved south and got a bullmastiff "trained to bite" in case someone unwanted comes to visit.

The Daily News tracked her family to Claremont, Va., once one large plantation, now a tiny town of cotton and soybean farms, with a two-room library and post office, but no police department or local newspaper.

In a wide-ranging two-hour interview, Glenda Brawley and Ralph King, Brawley's mother and stepfather, revealed glimpses into her life.

She attended Howard University in Washington, where she could not have a roommate for security reasons.

Like her mother, she works as a nurse. Co-workers at the nursing home that employs her know her by the name listed on her nursing license, Tawana Thompson.

Brawley is not married, her parents say. And 20 years after camera flashes burned her eyes daily, family and friends still know not to take her photo...

Her is the take-away from the article that everyone - no matter what color - should note:

“We’re just regular people,” Glenda Brawley said to her husband. “We should be millionaires.”

...Justice, the Obama/Holder way.

Poor baby...sounds like she’s had it rough. I guess the moral of the story is...don’t be a racists bigot, or listen to other racist bigots, don’t make up false accusation in an attempt to destroy the lives of innocent people.

Sounds to me, though, that she is still angry and has found a home in a false religion that caters to the perpetually outraged and angry. One that see’s nothing wromg with lying to your enemies...in fact its tenants demand it, in order to defeat them. It’s good to have a place to belong

I don't think I'd want her as my nurse.

LOL! It doesn't appear that she got any smarter though.

"She’s a nurse apparently."

Wonder how long she lasted at Howard University, and if she got her nursing degree from there.

The article said she couldn't have a roommate due to security. Security for who? Were they protecting her, or protecting a potential roommate from Tawana carving letters into her stomach?

And one that treats women as second-class citizens. She must enjoy being used by men.

Who's security, the roommate?

I'd wager the clothes on my back that she's still the same worthless pig she was back then.The fact that she converted to the Religion of Pieces strongly tends to confirm my hunch.

It worked for Sharpton. Before Tawana, he was pretty much an unknown entity then he burst on the public scene with his incendiary charges on behalf of Tawana. And the rest, as they say, is history.

BTW, has he ever paid off the NY cop who won a $300K judgment against him for defamation? Oh, I’m sure he has. /sarc

Still sleeps in a pig pen covered in her own feces does she???? I would have given her 20-life for that stunt! She ruined Steven Pagano’s life. What a pig!

Was she ever prosecuted for her false police reports? I know Crystal Mangum was never prosecuted (thanks to the AG of North Carolina) but don’t remember if Tawana was.

If she has a criminal history can she still get licensed as an RN? Maybe she is a nurses aide or an LPN.

Good questions. I don’t know. I spent some time searching for more information, but couldn’t locate the answers.

What...the freak?

Believe it or not, there’s not a guaranteed payoff in making a public douchesse of yourself, despite what you read in Star Magazine.

So we know how Tawana came to be low-life scum, and that her parents are still that way. I don’t think she ever seriously apologized to those she helped put through the wringer, so we’ll leave her in that category as well.
