I would agree that the friends she went and talked to before she reported to this to the police need to be talked to but the machinations of her story make me believe that she is the lone idiot. <br><br>As yoyo said, it's not dyslexia, she did the B in a mirror. I don't see her doing that with friends and then one of them not mentioning she put the B on backwards. Besides, if there was more than one brain involved here it would have not fallen apart so quickly. Any cop looking at her and her changing story would have suspected fraud right away. No, I think this is a lone idiot who may have gotten a shiner from her boyfriend and then suddenly had a grand plan. Maybe she sat around with her friends and chatted about possibilities but I think she went out and pulled this fiasco off all by herself.<br><br>But lone idiot or a couple of friends, it was no college prank. It was a very criminal act with huge implications. The law says that she filed a false arrest report and she should be reamed for the maximum which is a very small punishment for the damage she could have wrought.<br><br><br><br><br>
Upon rereading your post Carp I think you might be right. If she is saying she doesn't know why she did it she could have been cranked up by her friends into doing it. Or chatted about it a bunch and she just decided to do it. The amount of zeroness in the planning makes me think that ultimately when she decided to do it she was alone because it seems only one brain cell was firing. But then again, I have seen meetings wherein many people have decided to take the most stupid path. Stupider than a path only one person could have chosen. I had this poster in my conference room but one of the meeting lovers tore it down.<br><br>Let me se if I can find a copy. ....<br><br>Found it. I need to purchase another copy. I got it from my Secret Santa years ago and I loved it in my conference room. But then I had to share the room with ... meeting lovers.<br><br><br><br>I gave great meetings when that poster was up. I could always point to it when the meeting was becoming group stupid. The agreeing to the lowest common denominator or even worse deciding on a really neat but totally fruitless path.<br><br><br><br>
A quick google search for criminal prosecution of hate crime hoaxes seems to indicate it can be considered a felony.<br><br>http://www.i2i.org/main/article.php?article_id=564<br><br><br>Ashley Todd arrested:<br><br><br><br>
<br>Welcome Back!<br><br>He was restating the obvious, same <br>as the point about being "left handed".<br>I'd mentioned it because the scrapes were <br>not only backward but on the "wrong" side of her <br>face (as if drawn by her own right hand) since drawing <br>it on the left cheek would have been awkward for a right<br>handed person IF HE'D INDEED BEEN FACING HER at the time.<br><br><br><br> [color:white].<br></font color=white> [color:white]. .</font color=white>"Fool us thrice...and we get what we deserve."

Who the heck knows why a dumpy little chick would do such a thing.<br>She doesn't look like a malicious or hateful type, but who knows?<br><br>Might of been merely a bid for attention...<br>Might have been a cover for the $60 that had "gone missing"...<br>Had they sent her to withdraw it?and for what purpose? rent? food?<br>Beer money? Maybe returning empty-handed didn't seem like a viable<br>option... A fabrication for not being her fault ? ...but who to blame??<br><br>I doano...<br>maybe we never will...<br><br>But in the Twana Brawely case, it was fear of punishment for staying<br>out all night, that caused her to lie to cover her a$$, and the rest, as<br>they always say, is history.<br><br>I believe this girl stepped into a hornet's nest out of shear stupidity.<br>(that doesn't excuse it... she still tried, for whatever reason, to pin it<br>on a racial stereo-type to cover her fat arse.

(unconfirmed)<br><br>McCain campaign's involvement implicated in the Todd hate-crime hoax. <br><br><br>"John McCain's Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the hoax story about the attack on a McCain volunteer well before the facts of the case were known or established -- and even told reporters outright that the "B" carved into the victim's cheek stood for "Barack," according to multiple sources familiar with the discussions.<br><br>John Verrilli, the news director for KDKA in Pittsburgh, told TPM Election Central that McCain's Pennsylvania campaign communications director gave one of his reporters a detailed version of the attack that included a claim that the alleged attacker said, "You're with the McCain campaign? I'm going to teach you a lesson."<br><br>Verrilli also told TPM that the McCain spokesperson had claimed that the "B" stood for Barack. According to Verrilli, the spokesperson also told KDKA that Sarah Palin had called the victim of the alleged attack, who has since admitted the story was a hoax.<br><br>The KDKA reporter had called McCain's campaign office for details after seeing the story -- sans details -- teased on Drudge.<br><br>The McCain spokesperson's claims -- which came in the midst of extraordinary and heated conversations late yesterday between the McCain campaign, local TV stations, and the Obama camp, as the early version of the story rocketed around the political world -- is significant because it reveals a McCain official pushing a version of the story that was far more explosive than the available or confirmed facts permitted at the time.<br><br>The claims to KDKA from the McCain campaign were included in an early story that ran late yesterday on KDKA's Web site. The paragraphs containing these assertions were quickly removed from the story after the Obama campaign privately complained that KDKA was letting the McCain campaign spin a racially-charged version of the story before the facts had been established, according to two sources familiar with the discussions."<br><br><br><br>
Right Poly<br>she was pumped up - the police are now saying she acted alone and has mental issues but I betcha she still had lots of help tipping the bucket over and I bet that Smith guy had a big hand in it<br><br>Which begs another question;<br>Does colleges normally admit students with mental problems ? I guess this question should go in another thread<br><br>
