Police: Black Woman Lied About KKK Setting Her On Fire
CBS Houston ^ | October 24, 2012 7:47 AM | CBS Houston

WINNSBORO, La. (AP) — Forensic evidence indicates that a 20-year woman suffering from extensive burns set herself on fire then invented a story about being doused in flammable liquid by three men who she said also wrote the initials KKK and a racial slur on her car, state police said Tuesday.

On Sunday at 8 p.m., Sharmeka Moffitt called 911 from a walking trail in Winnsboro and told authorities she had been doused in flammable liquid by three men wearing white hoodies. She suffered extensive burns on more than half her body and was taken to LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for treatment.

After two days of investigating the case, authorities said Tuesday that the forensic evidence indicates Moffitt set herself on fire.

“The evidence does not support the statement that she was attacked by three males,” said Louisiana State Police spokeswoman Lt. Julie Lewis.

Lewis said Moffitt’s fingerprints were found on a lighter and lighter fluid recovered from the scene. Investigators also believe Moffitt used toothpaste to draw the KKK initials and racial slur on her vehicle. DNA evidence also points to Moffitt, she said.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the dumbest thing to do, I'd say this ranks about a 25. IOW, 2.5 times maximum stupidity.

Several law enforcement agencies, including the FBI, began looking into the alleged attack as a possible hate crime.

Do not hire such a hate-filled person for any kind of job...particularly any involving children.

My guess is she wanted to be a ‘martyr’ for the cause of re-electing Obama. She thought that nobody would question her story, being in Louisiana. She believed that everybody would all of a sudden get filled with rage and hate and vote for Obama out of sympathy for her being attacked. Now, she just looks like a fool..........

I guess this is the victim ... of herself. Maybe we can pray for her recovery and eventual explanation of this thing.

In case you wondered how the chief could empathize with this despicable race monger, that's him on the left. I predict that she won't be charged with filing a false police report.

_______________________________________

I do not advocate playing with matches and/or lighter fluid AT ALL. But, I did once or twice as a child (many moons ago) and unknown to my parents, of course.

I remember that a small amount of fluid placed on a surface such as a coffee table, sidewalk, even a small area of skin such as the palm of a hand, will burn off immediately when lighted. A nice, dangerous fire show.

And so here is my point. I’d almost place a bet that this poor woman has probably “played” with it as well, but her reasoning skills never matured. IOW - she never thought about getting burned over 50% of her body.

She didn’t hate herself at all.

And didn’t we know when first publicized this was a set-up. What a foolish welfare-stater, idol-worshipping bigot who didn’t care how much danger such she wanted to create.

Quite frankly, it’s good enough what happened to her. What goes around comes around. I’m just sorry the taxpayers have to pay for her stupidity and hatred.

Well, Sharmeka, color me shocked. Just shocked. To think that someone would try to set up the drooling, 500 member loons of the hapless and brain dead KKK, as a group that has the mental capacity or courage to even find a Jew, Catholic, Black, Chinese, or other type of persona non grata to harass is risible.

White hoodies? It's been so long since the goobers of the KKK have harassed anyone, our poor Sharmeka thought they wore HOODIES. LOL!!

I was immediately suspicious. When I saw the first article on this I scrolled down to the comments and the one person who voiced skeptism was being savaged by the liberals. The tenor changed fast. She was found to be a racist hoaxter even before Sharpton and Jackson could get there and hold a presser.

These “incidents” almost always prove to be fake. I always assume they’re fake, and that’s almost always the case.

I read that she had asked her boyfriend to meet her at the park and he said no he was watching football.

"prove to be fake"

I've searched the web and tried to get a fix on how many of these incidents are hoaxes. The fact that I can't find a number leads me to believe a very high percentage are hoaxes. By the way, whenever I try to investigate liberal assertions about hate crimes, the millions of "hungry" Americans, or any other liberal shibboleth, I seem to find few conservative websites. Most websites that pop up in search engines appear to be supporting the lib position. Or the liar's position if you will.

Once again FReepers called this as a fake when the story first appeared the other day. This type of thing is getting old real fast.
