Skip to comments.Cops: Student made up campus attack

A Muslim student who said a masked gunman assaulted her after he wrote anti-Muslim slurs in a women's restroom at Elmhurst College has been arrested for filing a false police report, officials said today.
A week after the incident roiled the small college, Elmhurst Police Chief Steve Neubauer said officers had cited Safia Z. Jilani, 19, of Oak Brook, on a single count of filing a false police report. Filing a false police report is a Class 4 felony, punishable by one to three years in prison.
The announcement -- made jointly by Elmhurst Police, the college and the DuPage County state's attorneys office -- concluded there was no merit to her complaint.
"The totality of all the evidence, and interviews with staff and students at the college ... concluded that this incident never happened," Neubauer said in a phone interview.
Jilani's report followed several weeks of tension on campus that began when some students allegedly called anti-Muslim slurs at students protesting the treatment of U.S. captives at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp.
As officials at the private college affiliated with the United Church of Christ last Friday called the incident a hate crime, hundreds of students rallied to show solidarity with their Muslim peers, who constitute about 25 of the school's 3,300 students.
The college beefed up security, including foot and car patrols by Elmhurst police, and campus security offered to escort Muslim students around the campus.
I used to have a link of a bunch of these:
I looked to see what the outcome was for some of the cases a while back but didn’t see any outcomes.
If that is so, why are you bothering to reply to my inquiry for proof of your scurrilous statement at all?
... especially when your knee-jerk response is the typical liberal one
So to you, my asking for the truth is being a liberal? You had better go back over to Du or Kos; you're definitely on the wrong forum here.
... to call people an anti-semite, a bigot, a homophobe, a racist, etc.
Whoa up, junior -- I haven't called you anything -- yet. But you're sure making it easy for me if I decide to do so.
But I can tell you this, I have paid far closer attention to all of this over the years than you have, clearly.
That is a silly, totally untrue assumption, but that is off the subject
And my original post was accurate, and a fair shot to take.
Then why are you making such a fool of yourself by accusing me of things I haven't done and what I have or have not done over the years, by refusing to give the first smidgin of proof of you currilous statement?
Or aren't you aware of the fact that that is usually the first indication that a person is a liar?
currilous = scurrilous
I wouldn't bet on that asinine statement if I were you. You've already made a big enough fool of yourself.
Go away, loser.
That is the laugh of the day -- coming as it does from a bigot who refuses to prove his blatant bigotry.
What a loser, and posting under a military reference moniker, that’s great. No politically correct, name-calling puss like you would last a minute in the military.
How would a cowrdly liar like you know anything about that anyhow?
Yeah, tell me all about it. Just go away and drift back into your politically correct, quasi-liberal mindset, the same mindset that has let this country slip to the extent it has. And learn how to spell too, if you’re going to post on this site.
Let me guess, the cops after their investigation found no visible signs of physical assault...Her watching him write anti-Muslim slurs in the women's restroom, then waiting to be assaulted by him was met with laughs? Did it turn out the written slurs matched her hand writing? Did she have marker ink left on her fingers...Did she fail to notice the hallways or exists and entries to the campus had security cameras that never revealed the person she described?
I love when people get caught up in their BS.
There is not much that an insignificant, lying twit like you can say that can do that. So why don't you just go back over to DU with the other leftwing liars, and quit trying to project you asininity onto me?
