    TX - Racial overtones in forefront as teen charged in fake rape report

    Washington Post:

    ‘Hoax’: Texas teen made up widely publicized story
    of being kidnapped, raped by 3 black men, police say


    ---
    Fear gripped the small town of Denison, Tex., after 18-year-old Breana Harmon Talbott burst into a church on a Wednesday night, bleeding and wearing only a shirt, bra and underwear. She said that three black men in ski masks had kidnapped her.
    ---
    The story caught the attention of far right websites, which focused on the alleged suspects’ race. Many seemed angry over a perceived lack of media coverage.

    It was posted five times to a Donald Trump subreddit. One headline read, “Three black man kidnapped and gang raped an engaged 18 year old white girl yesterday. IF THE RACES WERE REVERSED, THIS WOULD BE NATIONAL NEWS. THESE MEN DESERVE TO BE HANGED.”

    As if we don't have enough real life racial divides. Ugh.
    Whatever her thinking or motivation for this story, I'm glad the truth has come out before it could escalate further.
    Her story was elaborate, she play acted a specific victimology and even staged a crime scene. This is highly disturbing behaviour.

    charged with making a false report to a peace officer, a class B misdemeanour, which has a penalty of up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to US$2000

    Chief Burch said the department "will also seek restitution for the significant costs for conducting such a major investigation".

    not enough IMO!

    hope she does not become a nurse because who could trust her

    People like them harm real victims. It trivializes their suffering.

    That being said, people who do this like attention and are obsessed by it. They want people to feel sorry for them. They are perpetual victims and always play victim. This is a form of extreme narcissism mixed with Histrionic and Borderline Personality Disorder with Munchausen Syndrome.

    She could have sent those men to prison for life. It is scary that someone just has to claim you did something and you are charged, convicted and doing life in prison.

    Luckily this one was vague. But what about the ones who name a person? It's frightening how many people are incarcerated with no evidence except the word of someone else.

    I don't have the answers but there has to be a better way. Too many innocent people torn from families for years at a time. It's disgusting.

    Talbott’s former fiance, [REDACTED], told KDFW-TV he is “moving on” from the relationship after the terrible betrayal. He said he and Talbott had a fight before she disappeared, but he doesn’t understand why she would stage a gang rape.

    The fight was over whether the couple would move after Hollingsworth joined the Army. According to Facebook posts, Talbott and Hollingsworth had been engaged since November 2016 and started dating in April 2016.

    Sick chick, who would falsely accuse innocent people in order to spite/gain attention from someone else. Glad her fiance dumped her. She is surely a sociopath/psychopath who doesn't have a conscience. People like her don't care who they hurt; they view other people only as tools to get what they want, IMO.

    Breana Talbott has been indicted today:

    Breana Harmon Talbott, 19, was indicted on two counts of tampering with physical evidence and two counts of tampering with a government record, the Grayson County district attorney's office said in a statement.

    ...

    Three of the charges she faces are third-degree felonies, punishable by two to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. The fourth charge is a state felony and is punishable by up to two years in a state jail and a additional $10,00 fine.

    While Talbott was originally arrested on a misdemeanor charge of making a false report, Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said her actions warrant higher charges.

    How could she send them to prison for life? They didn't exist.
    I understood every word you said. It was the order that you said them that has me confused.

    No way. This is a political prosecution. Pales in comparison to Tawana Brawley who actually named suspects.
