LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former standout for the University of Nebraska's women's basketball team will be charged with lying to police for reporting that three masked men broke into her home last month, carved anti-gay slurs into her and tried to set her house on fire, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Charlie Rogers, 33, who ranks second in career blocked shots for the Cornhuskers, told police the men broke into her Lincoln house July 22 and attacked her.

I think we all knew this was a lie from the first moment it was reported.

Exactly what many Freepers expected at the time. It seems as if this kind of thing is happening more and more often.

"It is important not to focus on the actions of any single individual," the groups said in the statement. "As residents of Lincoln we must continue to bring our community together to declare that violence and hate are not the values of our city."

Uh, the only violent hater in this story was the member of your "groups", kids.

PJ, pick up the white courtesy phone.

There should be some comedy gold out of this.

comments from self righteous CNN readers:

John Keating: “I am disgusted by these actions and am angry that things such as this occur. It is a pathetic, cowardly, and an evil attempt to seize power over a marginalized group within our state. That being said, I am proud that my city and more specifically Heartland Pride was able to organize the candle lit vigil. It is important that those who feel alone in the fight for equality understand that thousands support them”

TruthTeller: “Nice to see so many closed minds. I actually lived in Lincoln and the favorite sport of the Cornhuskers football team was finding and beating up gays around town. Lotsa good Christian love happening around there. “

iTexas “ This is just such a God-awful crime, that many people would rather believe it was made up rather than that such horrible people live among us and will probably get away with this hate crime.”

She should be charged with a hate crime against heterosexuals.

I knew it weeks ago when I first posted the story, and so did many FReepers. It was hinky from the get-go. She ought to be horse-whipped after all the campus candle-lit vigils and PayPal donations. I am sick of gays getting away with these things; I’ve lost count of the anti-gay hate crimes in the past few years which turned out to be hoaxes.

so in essence, she engaged in a criminal conspiracy to slur those who’s politics she disagreed with.

When will SHE be charged with a series of hate crimes?

Everyone knew this. I wonder how the softhearted folks who rallied around her and held vigils and all feel about this now. Like idiots, I hope.

Gee. Not enough homophobia around for you to maintain your official “victim of society” status?

Stage a hate crime, and reap the benefits.

Weeks ago, I had suggested that the FBI would probably check local stores’ surveillance cameras, to see if she had been caught purchasing things such as spray paint, duct tape, etc. In the Arrest Warrant pdf they found she had been to a local hardware store and purchased the items. Bingo. ;-)

She should be charged with fraud and made to return all donations too.

Damned right. It’s about time they made an example of these hoaxers. That gay guy who recently had vigils held for him when he was viciously attacked outside a gay bar turned out to be hoaxing, and I can think of at least 4 others, plus this one. So much for hate crime laws. Just has these shameless liars crawling out of the woodwork to collect.

Bingo! This was a crime committed specifically to incriminate an entire group of people - Christians.

This should be enhanced to a felony. Especially considering the massive amount of time and resources it required to investigate, all the while she continued to lie about it. Despicable has no more apt meaning.

Absolutely agree, and I believe that characterizing the victims of this crime as Christians is more accurate than the way I did with the word heterosexuals.

She should be charged with that federal crime IMO, and she should be made to pay all costs associated with this hoax that she perpetrated.

If she lied to the FBI then there will be federal charges coming.

Well, lying to the FBI is one thing, and certainly if she did that, she should be charged with that.

But I want hate crime charges. That particular charge only working one way is a bunch of horse crap.

They are thinking of hate crime charges for leaving uncooked bacon near Muslims but not thinking of hate crime charges in this case?

Horse crap.
