A student at Wayne State University in Michigan was caught red handed after trying to claim that she was the victim of not one racially targeted attack but two separate incidents.
The student at Wayne State University claimed that eggs were thrown at her door and that her pride stickers were torn down because she was a “black person living in the their space.” After the police put 200 man hours into an investigation they now believe that she did this all herself.
From The Daily Wire:
Martinez claimed in videos posted to Instagram that someone threw eggs at her dorm door on February 16 and March 1. She also claimed her LGBT Pride sticker was torn down and a photo of her dog was stolen. She said she was targeted “all because [she was] a black person living in their space.”
Following the extensive investigation, police now suspect Martinez was behind the attacks, or, at the very least, they were not racially motivated.
“There are absolutely no indicators of any racial intent,” police wrote in the report, which did not name a police officer or investigator for the case.
The police report added that it was Martinez’s own peers – in organizations that support her lifestyle choices – that questioned her claims. The report also noted that Martinez had a motive to make the allegations in an effort to break her lease for unknown reasons, though the report mentioned it had something to do with a dog.
Hate crime hoaxes happen all the time, in America today it is easier to victimize yourself than to work hard and succeed at something.
