Fake crimes seem to be on the rise. Is the goal to make Trump supporters look evil? It sure seems that way.
(Editor note: scroll down halfway into the article and then towards the bottom for recent cases featured in the mainstream media to support this author’s argument)
I’ve been a detective for more than 20 years. My father was a detective. His father was a detective.
I never gave a damn about politics. My father and grandfather both did. They were both Kennedy Democrats.
Interestingly, they both voted for Trump. Truthfully, I didn’t vote. My grandfather, before he passed last year, put it pretty simply:
“Look deeper,” he told me. “You’re a detective. Put it all together. There’s a reason they hate Trump. And they’ll do anything to stop him. He’s not a cop – but he’s still one of US.”
Since my grandfather passed last year, I’ve investigated no fewer than 5 “hate crimes”. And guess what? They all turned out to be false.
What did they have in common? They were all unfounded accusations made to look Trump supporters look like racists, homophobes or sexists. My grandfather told me to look deeper. I didn’t. Until this Jussie Smollett story. And now my eyes are opened.
In one of my investigations, there were “join the KKK” fliers passed around a condo community – about 100 of them. They looked completely legit. Except they were, well, childish. Residents were up in arms.
It took a week to conclude the investigation. A 15-year-old minority was captured on two separate cameras distributing the fliers. He admitted he had done it to “get peoples’ heads right about racism in America”.
Two more investigations – both post-Kavanaugh. Both “rape” allegations. Both with significant social media noise surrounding them. Both tied to the “me too” movement.
Both turned out to be false. One woman was upset because the man had publicly humiliated her by dumping her in a restaurant. The other openly admitted – after being caught in a flat out lie – that she thought men needed to start to suffer for what the “toxicity of men” has been doing to a generation of boys.
Two more cases. One – an attack against a young black man. His mother called us after he came home bloody and bruised. He told us a bunch of young white boys from a local Christian school attacked him and called him racial slurs.
Except it only took us two days, three witness statements and a closed circuit video from a corner store to determine he had his ass handed to him for stiffing the guys he had been buying drugs from.
A young gay man getting notes in his locker saying he’d be “skinned” and “hung” for liking boys.
A day later, he broke down in hysterics when we pressed him for details and he admitted that he just wanted attention and that he had written the notes himself.
“Look deeper” my grandfather told me.
This Smollett story really chapped my ass. You know why? Because I have a lot of black friends and a lot of gay friends. Several are on the department with me. And I’d damn near kill to protect them. I was enraged when I heard what happened to him. This is unacceptable in a society where we have fought for years to overcome discrimination.
Except… it’s looking like it didn’t happen.
In case you missed it, here’s the deal.
Last month, the “Empire” actor recounted a hard-to-believe hate crime. He said he was attacked by two white men on a city street in Chicago at 2 a.m. He told cops the men assaulted him, put a rope around his neck and threw bleach on him while hurling racist and homophobic comments and saying “This is MAGA country.”
The media rallied around him, as did Democrats. Elizabeth Warren, who is running for President, rushed to his defense.
Bernie Sanders, also in the running, called it “a horrific instance of the surging hostility toward minorities around the country.”
Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris both compared the alleged attack to a “modern-day lynching,” while House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi, ex-Vice President Joe Biden and other Dems jumped, fanning racial and LGBTQ divisions and slamming Trump supporters.
The Hollywood elite blamed it on “Trump’s rhetoric.”
Now evidence strongly suggests the whole thing was a hoax, with video surveillance showing the attackers were black, and reports showing Smollett may have rehearsed the “attack’ and paid
Video surveillance obtained by police show the attackers were black — not white, as they were initially told. Two Nigerian brothers who had been questioned by police as possible “assailants” are friends with Smollett and it’s being investigated whether Smollett may have rehearsed the “attack” and paid his anti-Trump buddies thousands of dollars to commit the assault upon himself.
By the way, that’d be a stage 4 felony.
False accusations are out of control.
It was done to Brett Kavanaugh, with Democrats alleging, and the media embracing, his female accusers’ outlandish stories of alleged sexual assault from decades ago without corroborating evidence.
Those allegations were later rebuked or debunked.
Let’s not forget the left’s recent ambush against the Covington High School boys.
The students were quick to be painted as “racists” simply because they’re white, straight and male who committed the ultimate sin — smiling while wearing MAGA hats — on a school trip to DC.
The teenagers were bullied and defamed across the mainstream media. That was until evidence emerged proving they did nothing wrong. Now suit is being filed against many of those who defamed the boys, including a lawsuit against the Washington Post for $250 million.
Now to Drake University, where a former student plead guilty last month to making false reports to police in connection with racist notes found in November on the campus.
19-year-old Kissie Ram pleaded guilty to a simple misdemeanor. She faced up to a year in jail but was given a deferred judgement that placed her on a 12-month probation.
This after she filed a report that a racist note was found on Campus on November 28. In total, five notes were found. At least four of them were considered hoaxes and tied back to Ram. She admitted to writing one of them and reported receiving one of them as well.
AKA – it was all a bunch of crap.
In Glastonbury, Connecticut, a man was charged in January after police say he spray painted “KKK” on the wall of an apartment complex elevator and then called police to report the crime.
Alec Kasson, 29, was charged with third-degree intimidation due to bias, second-degree false reporting an incident and several other charges for the vandalism in The Soap Factory Apartments where he lived, police said.
When interviewed by officers, Kasson admitted to writing “KKK,” police said.
The vandalism came amid several complaints of swastikas being drawn around the same apartment complex in the weeks before Kasson’s alleged vandalism, police said.
I never cared about politics. Like I said, I didn’t vote in the last presidential election.
But you bet your ass I will in the next one.
Because this crap has to stop. And it’s pretty clear who the real sexists, racists, and homophobes are in society.
Next time, I’m voting for the orange guy. Because my grandfather put it best:
“They’ll do anything to stop him. He’s not a cop – but he’s still one of US.”
