‘KILL THE GAY’: LESBIAN COUPLE CHARGED AFTER ALLEGEDLY FAKING HATE CRIME
By: Erica Ritz – The Blaze – May 21, 2012
Back in October, a lesbian couple in Colorado called the police after they allegedly found the words “Kill the Gay” scrawled in red across their garage, and a noose hanging from their front door.
When asked, the couple told officers they believed that the hateful acts were retaliation from their neighbors and the homeowner’s association, who were allegedly upset that the couple did not pick up after their dogs.
However, they refused to “submit to hate” and posted these signs on their garage in defiance:Perhaps the women didn’t anticipate how seriously the issue would be treated, because nearly eight months later, with the full force of the FBI involved, authorities are saying the womenthemselves may have been responsible for the acts. They have been charged with both criminal mischief and false reporting, and one of the women, Aimee Whitchurch, faces an additional charge of forgery.
