Fake racially-motivated crime

Remember the supposed hate crime where a woman's mobile home was torched after she found paper crosses burning on her front lawn? I thought it sounded suspicious. And apparently it is, but it's not on the part of a disgruntled neighbor, as I had suspected; it's hanky-panky on the part of the one reporting the crime.
According to Lindel Faulkner, someone set crosses in the shape of a swastika on fire in the yard of her southeast Bexar County home.

On Monday, Bexar County officials said Faulkner was arrested for arson in connection with the fire. Faulkner was charged after the fire extensively damaged her trailer on Hildebrandt.

Shortly after the fire, Faulkner told News 4 WOAI her bi-racial family was threatened when she moved into the 9000 block of Hildebrandt Road this May.

Arson investigators say her story was "inconsistent" with the evidence they gathered at the scene. Additionally, witnesses told officials that just before Faulkner's mobile home burned, she left the friends she was staying with. When she returned, she reportedly told them not to go to her trailer home.

Also, fire officials say Faulkner had another trailer home which burned in February of this year.

If this woman is pretending to be victimized by imaginary racists, then she's the real threat to race relations, not anyone who happens to disagree with our president.
