Another Fake Hate Crime?… Louisiana Woman Says Hooded KKK Members Torched Her …UPDATE: Police Say the Woman Set Herself On Fire

Another fake hate crime?
Sharmeka Moffitt from Lousiana said three random men in white hoodies doused her with flammable liquid and torched her while she was walking. Then they marked KKK on her car.
Despite speculation, Sharmeka was not wearing an Obama T-shirt.

Christian Post reported:

Sharmeka Moffitt, 20, of New Orleans has been seriously injured by possible members of the Ku Klux Klan. Reports state that Moffitt suffered severe burns on more than half of her body and the initials KKK smeared onto the hood of her car.

Moffitt believes the crime could be race-related and officers are investigating the case as such. According to Moffitt, three men wearing white hooded sweatshirts or hats approached her on Sunday night and doused her with a flammable liquid before lighting a match and setting her on fire. She suffered burns on more than half of her body and requires surgery for treatment.

“Both of her arms, and they are third degree burns, down her chest and legs-one. Basically, her arms are real bad,” her mother, Edna Moffitt told KSLA News.

Police also discovered the letters KKK, along with a racial slur, smeared on the top of her car. While acts by the KKK are rare, Otis Chisley, president of the local NAACP, said activity is still “prevalent throughout Louisiana.”

“It’s hidden but it exists,” he added.

“This is a horrific event for our community,” said Sheriff Kevin Cobb. “It makes everyone uneasy. It is our hope that everyone stands together at this time, and follow the information that is gathered, follow the facts, follow the evidence and hopefully that will lead us to justice in this case.”

Hmm… Something smells funny about this story.

UPDATE: As suspected – the police today said the woman set herself on fire.
What a hateful idiot.

    I wish her a speedy recovery. And whoever is responsible should spend decades in prison.

    Which scenario is more likely:
    1) The Klan is resurgent and perpitrated some random act of violence in this day and age of cameras on every phone and nobody saw them.
    2) He crack bong (loaded with brandy or the like) exploded and she is lying.

    Take your time, I’ll wait…

    (Odd how invisible racist goblins get away with so many crimes, isn’t it?)

    HAHAHA – I was wondering exactly the same thing myself!

    I can speculate one thing however – this was NOT the KKK and the perps were young, too young to know that the KKK does not wear either white hoodies or white hats (those are the good guys if you remember). The KKK wears bed sheets, much like Halloween ghosts.

    white hoodies, hmmm..

    seriously, prayers going out for her healing..


  • averagemelon

    Both arms? When someone douses you with a flammable liquid, it isn’t the arms they aim for. I’m not saying the woman was not attacked and badly burned. It’s just that that particular detail stands out as atypical.

  • Jeff

    Ah yes…. racism denialism, crack pipes and ‘jive talk.’ GP comments threads are nothing if not thoughtful.

    And re: BG’s idiotic Democrats are the KKK canard, which party still dominates the south, which party still waves the rebel flag and which party has the support of less than 10% of African Americans?
    Times change, people. Democrats used to dominate the South. Now Republicans do. Think more critically.

    Because of course the KKK are big supporters of the party with the black president.

  • Economan

    If true she should check with the DNC because last I checked, the KKK were sponsored by them.

  • Jeff

    Right, yes Economan…. the DNC, whose executive director is a black man, SPONSOR the KKK.

    It’s okay to be wrong about things sometimes, guys. Really… it’s alright.

    you didn’t ask, but here you go anyways..

    George Romney & Martin Luther King Jr.

    [“King spoke positively about the possible [presidential] candidacies of republicans George Romney, Charles Percy, and Nelson Rockefeller.”

    Bearing the Cross: Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Southern Christian
    Leadership Conference by David J. Garrow, 1986 (reprint 2004), page
    575. 1987 Pulitzer-Prize Biography Winner

    “The assassination of Martin Luther King is a great national tragedy.
    At a time when we need aggressive nonviolent leadership to peacefully
    achieve equal rights, equal opportunities and equal responsibilities for
    all, his leadership will be grievously missed.”

    Gov. George Romney, Apr 5, 1968 as reported in the Detroit News]

    maybe you’ll learn something, maybe not..

    (shrug) BG, what can I say? None of what you’ve posted is proof of anything.

    I can find conservatives that hate Mitt Romney, african americans that hate Barack Obama, etc etc.

    What’s important is LOGIC.

    If the Democratic party is the party of anti-minority racism, why do the vast majority of minorities continue to support the Democratic party? If your answer is something like, ‘welfare’, ‘they’re dumb,’ or… look, I don’t even know. The point is that this all should be self-evident to you. It is really, really not complicated.

    Think more critically.

    Your average neo-Klanner is too busy manufacturing, selling, and using meth these days to randomly set people on fire. Sounds like a fake story to cover up something else.
