Man Admits Hate Crime Attack Was False

POSTED: 3:59 pm CST December 27, 2004
UPDATED: 10:27 am CST December 28, 2004

INDEPENDENCE, Mo. -- Police said a 22-year-old man was charged with filing a false report about a hate crime.


Floyd Elliott, of Independence, told police that on Dec. 14, two subjects attacked him in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He said the attackers cut him in the stomach, branded him with a hot knife, and attempted to carve the word "***" on his forehead.

Investigators were suspicious about the report because the head carving was backwards, as if done while looking into a mirror.
Later, Elliott admitted to police that the injuries were self-inflicted. He said he falsely reported the attack to increase the police presence in his neighborhood.

They will probably charge him for filing false police reports. It really makes me mad when people do things like this.

I don't think the guy needs to do hard time or anything, but I do think 30 days in the county hotel would be in order.

I say they just rub some indelible ink into the wound so it becomes a tattoo and let it go at that.

More seriously...

I presume that filing a false police report is a misdemeanor, punishable by a fine and no more than a year in the county jail.

Could be a long year in jail with *** carved into your forehead even if it is backwards....

If he made the stupid mistake of using a mirror to carve "***" into his own forehead....would that make him guilty of commiting a "GAF"...?
