    False claims of hate crimes on the rise in the homosexual community

    Rogers told police three men wearing black ski masks broke into her home during the early morning hours on July 22, bound her wrists and ankles with zip ties, beat her and carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and abdomen.

    This crazy lesbian did this all to herself. See link for the complete article:

    Okay, you've posted a link to exactly one case of a suspected false report... how did you get the "on the rise" in the gay community? Or did you just make that up?

    I read a story a few years back about a Jewish woman who made up a claim about a false attack, and drew swastikas on her self, claiming it was her attackers. Therefore, false claims must be "on the rise" in the Jewish community too. Idiot.

    Attention, sympathy, possibly an insurance claim for the property damage.

    From the article: "Also puzzling was that Rogers wrote on Facebook on July 18 what they believe is a motive for faking the attack, according to The Associated Press: "So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me."

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

    Cool, but none of those links suggest an increasing trend.

    The individual actions of individuals until proven otherwise, I doubt there is a larger conspiracy ongoing to get people to fake "hate crimes" in the hopes of press involvement, although I'll submit nothing's impossible. Prove through some rhetoric espoused by "leaders" that this is happening and this may be open for some more discussion. Is the Zombie Apocalypse also on the rise as some have surmised?

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.

    And yet the stupid remarks of one Republican have been attributed (by you) to be those of 'many'.

    Hyperbole, rhetoric and now hypocrisy.

    Please remember, it's only a rising trend if it's a conservative or a religious group committing the crime.

    For some that is apparently true. In the interest of the truth I have seen the same tactic practiced by conservatives. It is just ludicrous to see either side denounce the other for doing what they themselves practice.

    There is something about rocks and glass houses that comes to mind and needs to be said.
