When anti-migrant sentiment is the dish of the day this is what we can expect more of. Why does anyone do this? Apparently the anti-migrant groups were all over the story up until they found out it was a hoax. Oops.

Girl Attacked for Anti-Illegal Immigration Sign

A girl who claimed she was injured by a group of Hispanic students because of a class project lied about the attack, a school official said.

Melanie Bowers, 13, had claimed that a group of middle school students physically assaulted and threatened to rape her because of the anti-illegal immigration poster she created for a class project, which instructed students to craft a protest sign.

  1. Melanie Bowers faked the extent of injuries from the attack against her, and that is wrong.

    But, a greater wrong was the young Hispanics stupidity in thinking that because they disagreed with her right to enjoy her free speech rights that they could just deny her that right. When they forcibly took the sign from her and destroyed it, they were denying her free speech right.s.

    They also committed s crime when they forcibly took the sign from her person—its called theft, or grand theft.

  2. They did ‘commit a crime’, however in school that would normally be dealt with by a call home, detention, and making the boys write an apology. (I would also add a homework assignment on the First Amendment.)

    Faking injuries from a confrontation could have landed these kids in court on false charges of assult and battery. Thank God they had the taped evidence. If they hadn’t…

    Does anyone have any clue why the little girl might have done this?
