Posted on 08/21/2012 11:16:13 AM PDT by China Clipper
The woman who told police she was the victim of a brutal hate crime in Lincoln last month will be arrested on suspicion of lying to police.
The Lancaster County Attorney issued an arrest warrant Tuesday morning for Charlie Rogers, who is charged with misdemeanor false reporting.
Rogers, 33, told police three masked men broke into her apartment on July 22, tied her up, carved anti-gay slurs into her skin and tried to light her house on fire.
After binding her with zip ties, she told police, one of the men held her down while another cut derogatory words into her arms and abdomen, sliced a cross into her chest and cut the front of her thighs and shins.
Rogers said the attackers rolled her onto her stomach, pinning her arms under her body. Then, she said, they cut her buttocks, the back of her thighs and the back of her right calf.
The reported attack galvanized Lincoln and made national news. Thousands of people from Lincoln and Omaha attended rallies and donated money to support Rogers after the attack.
Now, police say, they believe she made it all up.
There was no apparent sign of a struggle in the living room where Rogers said she was attacked on her bed, the warrant for her arrest says.
There was no apparent blood on the bedspread; even though Ms. Rogers reported she was rolled on to her stomach after she had been cut on her arms, abdomen, chest and front of her legs while being held down, the warrant says.
A forensic pathologist contacted by the FBI, which assisted in the investigation, said Rogers made the cuts herself or they were done with her permission.
The cuts looked superficial and symmetrical, avoided sensitive areas of the body and wouldve taken considerable time to inflict, pathologist Michelle Elieff said in the warrant. Moreover, theyre in places accessible to the victim and follow her frame of reference.
Police found a pile of clothes, white knit gloves and a red box cutter on the living room floor. Rogers said the gloves did not belong to her, but DNA testing determined she was the major contributor of DNA inside of them, the warrant says.
Investigators discovered that white knit gloves, zip ties, blades and a red utility knife were purchased July 17 at a hardware store at 945 S. 27th St. During an interview, Rogers told police she shops at that store.
Investigators then showed a clerk at the store a photo lineup and the clerk picked Rogers from the lineup and identified her as the person who bought the items, the arrest warrant says.
Police were expected to arrest Rogers on Tuesday.
I remember this one. It looked and sounded fake from the get-go.
The fake incidetn made national news
will the truth?
yet again homoexuals show their mental illness and yet again the national media will ignore it.
When is our side GOP, talk radio the likes of Hannity actually going to get balls and mention what the homostapo does and how they use laws against us or how they lie and use NAZI thuggery?
How many times have we seen homosexuals lying like this and about this, how many times have we seen homosexuals attacking people, intimidating people etc?
This has ot stop and it wont until people speak up
Handcuff her to James Hamblin and toss them off a boat in international waters.
A lot of us saw this and called it correctly when the story first came out. This story made no sense back then, and still doesn’t.
Hannity? Your kidding right?
They should have "I'm a sucker" rallies to balance things out.
Or, maybe it should be "Darn, we got caught" rallies.
Yep, conservatives show their “hate” by buying chicken sandwiches.
These kind of “gay bashing” attacks rarely happen outside of the minds of the wannabe victims.
At the time FReepers instantly saw this for what it was - another Tawana Brawley faux-hate incident.
Tough luck Charlie Rogers, girl with a man’s name. Your name and your loathsome smear attempt is going to be common currency on this site for years.
I’m sure that the DUmmies will take this news with quiet dignity and grace.
Dan Rather: “Fake, but accurate.”
If you want to be a martyr, sometimes you just have to do it yourself.
Knew it. Hope they throw away the key.
In a way yes, most of us know Hannity and others who have a vice and most of talk radio never discuss ever the homostapo , their agenda or what they do and it pisses me off that they still fool many on our side .
And yet another gay person needs to stage a crime in order to prove a narrative that they seem to have a really difficult time illustrating through all of the supposed real world examples they say take place everyday!
Maybe they hate themselves so much that they are the real homophobes?
Somebody forgot to stoke the Reichstag smolder.
Pretty sure the first 20 FR posts to this story called BS, to her claims.
I sure did!
I guess this is not a “legitimate” hate crime...
In a just world, she, it, whatever, should be given the same sentence the falsely accused perps would have received had they been convicted of this crime.
Nothing less will be acceptable. It is time these SSAD people learn they cannot destroy the moral fabric of this country with immunity.
Schadenfreude with a paranoia topping - delicious!
Oh quel shock! /s
Like no-one saw this coming a mile away.
She even looks ʎzɐɹƆ
Gee, who would have believed this whole thing was a hoax?
Oh yeah, right. Everyone with even half a brain.
This is SOO great! Does anyone here have the link from before where we are all predicting this would happen? Wasn’t the original reporting of the crime ridiculed in Dummies Funnies?
FReepers sure called this one from the get go !
I knew it from the first second! But why is this a misdemeanor? IMO should be a felony.
That’s a HARD-looking 33. She looks like she’s pushing 50.
Lezbo dumbass. What a dope! Throw her in jail as a warning to other hate crime hoaxers
Seems like the perfect time for a twofer! Charges of lying to police, then charges of committing a hate crime against a homosexual; she did it after all, simply because she was gay...
Sorry Charlie, only the best tasting “tuna” get to be Starkist!
One to many daily doses of the Morton Downing talk shows...
Earlier threads on this story ...
Surprise! Surprise! Another “hate crime” exposed. We all knew where this was headed from the get-go. Wonder what the DUmmie/KOmmie reactions will be?
we’re looks like we were all wise to the yucky dyke, lol.
The latest winner of the Kerri DUnn(ce) fake “hate crime” award.
Ba da bump bump bump, another one bites the dust.
not many comments from DU. Here’s what’s there now:
“1. I hope she gets the help she clearly needs.”
“and she needs to have the book thrown at her she’s just made it that much harder for legitimate victims of hate crime”
“If there’s no repercussions for these kinds of false claims there’s no disincentive to trying it.
At best she wasted law enforcement resources and makes it harder for others to file hate crimes charges.
At worst she could have sent some innocent people to jail for a long time.”
“Maybe I’m edging into paranoia here, but why is this being circulated now, when there’s all this talk by the GOP about women lying about rape? Is this election just making me crazy? “
“Yea, to me the story also sounded fishy from the start.”
” kind of suspected this when I first heard it”
Oh, dear, what a totally wrong hairstyle.
Throw the book at her.
I was looking to see if you found this. I was going to ping you about it. Maybe it’ll make a good follow-up DUFU.
