Lesbian Couple Charged With Staging Hate Crime

By Alyssa Newcomb | ABC News Blogs
May 19, 2012
A lesbian couple who claimed they were victims of a hate crime have been arrested after police determined they staged the incidents.

On Oct. 28, Aimee Whitchurch, 37, and Christel Conklin, 29, called police and reported the words "Kill the Gay" were scrawled in red spray paint on the garage door of their Parker, Colo., home.

The next day, the couple told deputies they found a noose hanging on the handle of their front door.

The women told officers they believed the incidents were retaliation from their neighbors and homeowner's association, who had complained the couple did not pick up after their dogs.

Due to the nature of the crimes, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office worked in tandem with the FBI to investigate. After reviewing witness statements, authorities determined Whitchurch and Conklin had staged the incidents.

Both women are charged with criminal mischief and false reporting. Whitchurch faces an additional charge of forgery.

She told ABC's Denver affiliate KMGH-TV police were mistaken and vowed to fight the charges.

"This is a fight I started. This is a fight I'm going to finish. This is a fight I'm right on," she said. "I have every right to live where I want to live."

Good! The last thing we need is police resources used to investigate lies.

I wonder why these people mirror the muslims so much with these stories.

Another story about someone wanting permanent victim status.

Activists such as these just water down the real cause, as people get sick and tired of the nonsense.
There's enough real incidence that they don't need to manufacture them, as the activists love to do...manufacture stories like this, or blow a story completely out of proportion to try and promote permanent victim status they so much want.

And stories like this are much like the crrying wolf parable. The more they do this, the more they water down real stories of such, and make people less and less caring when a real incidence happens, as the whole thing has been watered down.

I will add that what these chicas tried to do was play the "gay" card. They look like they're a pair of young and reckless trouble makers, and that is the reason that the neighbors have problems with them, and not because they're lesbians. It seems however they have been busted making that play, however...

You have a good cause. People like this don't help it in the least, it just makes people angrier and less likely to listen to real cases.

Excellent post. This is why it's so "dangerous" to play the "gay card", as it just makes people go "oh please" more, and when there is really a case, people will also just go "oh please", as the whole thing was watered down.
It appears that these two winners are just pains in the butts, and people around them dislike them because of that, probably not because they are "gay". But they can play the card, and it just makes gay people look even worse. They are hurting the cause not helping.

Quite correct. Ironically the fact that they played the card is because they are pains in the butt. True to their nature.... :\

Some people will do anything to avoid cleaning up dog shit.

I know it might bring up a debate here, but whenever someone has played the "race" card on me, like the "gay" card, the person or people are usually pains in the butt that are trying to get something that they're not entitled to and they scream discrimination. It's a shame, really.

Whenever a white person says "race card" as if America's history of racism is some game invented by black people, it makes me think that they are racist.

It's justified sometimes and sometimes it's not. Such is the nature of the beast.

You're 100 percent correct. And I've never heard of either race or gay cards being played for aught other purpose.

Problem is, its come to the point where you can't criticize anyone in a "victim status" group. These permanent victim status groups have been created, and unfortunately, if they do something that deserves criticism (such as not picking up their dog's crap), the reason you are "attacking" them is because they "are gay", or "minority", or whatever "victim status" group they are. It "couldn't possibly" be because you don't like dog crap on the sidewalk or in the gutter. They'll use their "victim status" card.

The problem is, every time the race card, or the gay card, or name a card is used, it severely waters down the REAL incidents of racism, bigotry, etc, as people begin to resent the card constantly being used, and all it does is hurt these groups even more, as people become MORE intolerant, not less intolerant when the card is over used.

Obviously racism is not an "invented" phenomena, it did and does exist. But it doesn't exist NEARLY to the extent that the "race card" is used. Again, it's like the "crying wolf" story.
The over use of "everything" being racism whenever a Black person is criticized makes people more intolerant, not less intolerant.

Rule 58 states that when a guy can get leverage, he will and whatever crowbar is closest is what he'll use.
