This has happened several times this year, gay people reporting attacks by homophobes, but the so-called attacks turn out to be by the alleged victims.
This one, though, takes first place.
“Four days before Charlie Rogers crawled naked and bleeding from her Lincoln home, screaming for help, she outlined in a Facebook posting what investigators believe was her motive for faking the July 22 attack, Police Chief Jim Peschong said at a news conference.”
“According to police, Rogers said three masked men broke into her home, and that one of them pinned her down while another sliced a cross into her chest, cut the front of her thighs and shins and carved derogatory words in her arms and abdomen. She said they then rolled her onto her stomach and cut her buttocks, the back of her thighs and the back of her right calf. She also said they tried to burn down her house.”
“She also sent a photo of a cross-shaped cut on her chest to a friend a few days before the reported attack, Peschong said.”
