Charges filed against UAlbany students who claimed bias attack

quote [ ... [W]omen claimed to have been the target of racial slurs and to have been assaulted while on the bus floor. But authorities now say there's no evidence any of that happened and that the women were the aggressors in the fracas, which was captured by cameras on the bus and other cameras in the hands of bus riders. All three defendants are charged with misdemeanor assault and are facing campus disciplinary proceedings. ]

I do have a cretain grudging respect for the cast iron gall of someone who can start a fight, claim victimhood, attend a rally in their honor, and have their brother Tweet out death threats to the actual victims. That takes ovaries. Also, RIP systemic racism and sexism. It had a good run while it lasted.

The narrative at the beginning of the month was a lot more credulous.

Tyreek Burwell, brother of one of the hoaxers: "Hope the police get to you before I do."

What's the world coming to when a woman has to send herself her own rape threats? It's like Satanic cishet white men (but I repeat myself) aren't even trying any more.

I live in Albany and take the bus, but not that bus and not late at night. It did not sound credible to me from the git, mostly because of the hate-crime part, though not that drunken ass students would be fighting. But i am a middle aged white guy, and I sure wasn't there...

But I also knew that there are a gabillion cameras on the bus, and the story would come out.

...now when wolves attack, nobody is going to come...
