Very, very stupid. The girl who claimed she was attacked for her anti-illegal immigration homework apparently fabricated the entire attack:
Athens Independent School District Superintendent Dr. Fred Hayes will hold a press conference at 2:45 p.m. today to address a recent incident involving an alleged attack on a student.Hayes said the school is nearing the end of the investigation and said one student will face charges stemming from the case. When asked if the young woman’s claim she was attacked by a large group of students could be substantiated, Hayes said the information will come out in the press conference, but that the student charged will be charged with “false claim.”
More from KLTV:
13 year old Melanie Bowers is having charges filed against her by Athens ISD today through the Henderson County District Attorney’s office for filing a false report, said Athens ISD officials today.
Bowers had claimed that she was beaten and threatened by a group of students at Athens ISD last Friday for creating a protest sign saying, “If you love our nation, stop illegal immigration.”
After the incident, administrators reviewed videotapes of the incident – which instead of showing students beating her, instead showed Bowers scratching herself on her arm. Some students reportedly threw her project into the trash, but no physical attacks or threats were substantiated.
Bowers’ parents have reportedly apologized to school administrators for their daughter and Bowers’ father is agreeing with the charges against her.
KLTV 7 News will have a video exclusive of the tape from Athens ISD tonight on KLTV 7 News at 5:00, 6:00, and 10:00 pm.
And they all reek.
Commenter PBoilermaker: “Unfortunately, this type of false claim will, as usual, get far more MSM coverage and gloating condemnation than any of the same from the other side of the ideological spectrum.”
Ain’t it the truth.
