Police say that a white teenager who said three black men kidnapped and raped her confessed to making up the story.

According to the Denison Police Department, Breana Harmon Talbott, 18, orchestrated an elaborate hoax that began when a man identifying himself as her fiance called police on March 8 and said she was missing. He told police her car had been found in the parking lot of an apartment complex with the driver’s side door open, with her phone, keys and a shoe nearby.

Police began a search and later that night, police say Talbott walked into a local church wearing just a shirt, bra and underwear, and with scratches and cuts on her body. She told people there she had been kidnapped and sexually assaulted in the woods behind the church.

When she spoke to police, Talbott described her attackers as “three black males” wearing ski masks. She said the men took her in a black SUV to a wooded area where two men raped her while one held her down.

But police say, “almost immediately, Talbott’s story and allegations began to unravel.” Police told Crimesider that investigators are still unclear about Talbot’s motivation.

Now, police say that Talbott admitted to investigators that the crime scene was staged and her injuries self-inflicted.

“We’ve had false reports before,” Lt. Mike Eppler told Crimesider, “but none to this extent.”

Talbott has been charged with false reporting, a Class B misdemeanor, and police say they plan to seek restitution for the costs of their search and investigation. As of Thursday morning, she was incarcerated in the Grayson County Jail on a $1,500 bond.

White Texas Trumpazoids Shoot Each Other…Blame Illegal Immigrants

This is six kinds of way of stupid. Seems a trio of Trumpazoid racists in Texas ended up in a circle-shoot. Have to believe they was all dressed up in their camouflage underwear too stupid to know most animals are colorblind…And weren’t wearing their bright orange. Or it could just be a case of idjits with guns.

Anyway two of the three who were “hunting” together wound up shot.

What better way to cover up monumental stupidity than a little right-wing racism to blame it on “illegals” sneaking across the border for a group of Chumph-suckers!

Two hunters indicted in friendly-fire shooting they blamed on immigrants

Two hunters have been indicted in a West Texas shooting they falsely claimed was started by unauthorized immigrants.

Michael Bryant and Walker Daugherty were indicted by a grand jury Wednesday on a charge of using deadly conduct by discharging firearms in the direction of others, Presidio County Sheriff Danny Dominguez told CBS7.

A Presidio County sheriff’s deputy responded to the Jan. 6 shooting at Circle Dug Ranch, near the border community of Candelaria, where he found Daugherty and Edwin Roberts with gunshot wounds, the station reports.

They said immigrants attacked them to try to steal the RV the hunting group was using — a false claim that was widely circulated, including by Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, according to a piece by The Houston Chronicle.

Miller, who’s been scrutinized for sharing wrong information in controversial social media posts, wrote about the incident in a Facebook note that was shared more than 6,500 times before it was deleted.

“This is why we need the wall and to secure our borders,” Miller wrote. “There are violent criminals and members of drug cartels coming in and it must put a stop to it before we have many more Walker Daughertys.”

It turns out, the incident involved friendly fire.

An investigation revealed that Daugherty shot Roberts and Bryant shot Daugherty, Dominguez told CBS7.

U.S. Border Patrol agents assisted the sheriff’s office by searching the area with thermal imaging technology and didn’t find signs of anyone on the ranch other than the hunting party, the sheriff’s office told BigBendNow.com.

“A thorough search of the perimeter of the ranch house by U.S. Border Patrol involving an approximate 30 agents, including expert trackers, concluded that there was no sign of human pedestrian traffic leading to or from the ranch that night,” the sheriff’s office said.

Fort Worth Again – Cop Shoots Man in Back Who is Walking Away

Yet another over the top Cop in Fort Worth Texas, shooting a man in the back from 30′ away, walking away, who supposedly had a box cutter…

Texas officer shot black man as he walked away, dashcam video suggests

A police dashcam video appears to show a Texas officer shooting a black man as he is walking away from the officer and not posing any immediate threat.

A lawyer for David Collie released a copy of the video showing the July encounter with a Fort Worth officer and a Tarrant County sheriff’s deputy. The officer and deputy were off duty at the time and working a security detail together at an apartment complex, attorney Nate Washington said on Wednesday.

He said Collie was shot in the back, leaving him paralyzed.

This release of dashcam footage comes on the heels of another recording involving alleged police misconduct in Fort Worth posted on Facebook Live last week. It showed an officer aggressively arresting a woman and her two daughters.

Washington said he released the video to show that last week’s incident was not an isolated case.

“Many members of our community have been assaulted, handled roughly by Fort Worth police officers,” Washington said. “To be clear, we believe the vast majority of police officers are good and decent people.”

Police at the time were searching for two shirtless black men who they believed had committed a robbery near a gas station, Washington said. Authorities said in a news release they issued at the time that Collie had pulled a box cutter from his pocket and pointed it at the officers.

Collie was charged with aggravated assault on a public servant but a grand jury declined to indict him.

Fort Worth police told NBC 5 that they would not comment until an internal investigation was complete. “In order to abide by state law, there is a process that we have to follow for the fairness of all the parties involved,” the department said. “Once the investigation has concluded, we will provide you with the results.”

Collie, 33, was walking from work to a friend’s apartment when the officers approached him in the patrol vehicle, Washington said. It was the Fort Worth officer who shot Collie, Washington said, and the video appears to show the officer firing his weapon about 10 seconds after exiting the vehicle, as Collie walked away.
The video was obtained about three weeks ago from the Tarrant County district attorney’s office through an open records request, Washington said.

The attorney also said he released the video on Tuesday at a news conference at Collie’s insistence because Collie was tired of comments made to his mother by people assuming he must have done something wrong.

Washington said Collie wanted to make clear he “didn’t do anything to threaten an officer”.

In the incident that prompted Washington to release the video, cellphone footagecaptured a white Fort Worth officer last week wrestling a black woman to the ground and then arresting her and her two daughters. The officer appeared to be argumentative and escalate the encounter with the woman, who had called police following an encounter between her son and a neighbor. The video has been viewed millions of times.

FT Police Officer Arrests Mom and Teen For Reporting Crime

Where I grew up, any adult in the neighborhood, if they saw a kid doing something that might pose physical danger to themselves or others, transgress the law, or cause a problem disturbing the peace of the neighborhood, had the right to walk out to tell you to stop doing whatever it was. Usually a short mea culpa by the kid involved was where it ended.  If you talked back, then the neighbor would almost always say something to your parents. at which point you were officially “in trouble”. Depending on what you did, that trouble might end up in a stern talking to or a but whipping. Talking back to a neighbor almost always assured it was the second consequence.

No neighbor would ever raise a hand to physically punish someone else’s kid.

The dumb ass cop in this case must have grown up with animals.

Officer on restricted duty after Texas woman’s controversial arrest seen on video

A white Texas police officer has been put on restricted duty after a video of him wrestling a black woman to the ground before arresting her and her two teenage daughters was posted on Facebook.

The incident began in a Fort Worth neighborhood Wednesday afternoon when an officer was called by Jacqueline Craig who had been arguing with a man who she said physically confronted her 7-year-old son for littering.

In the video, posted live on Facebook Wednesday, Craig can be seen telling a Fort Worth police officer that a neighbor choked her son after the neighbor said the child littered in his yard.  The officer is heard asking her, “Why didn’t you teach your son not to litter?”

The woman says the neighbor can’t prove to her the boy littered, but said “it doesn’t matter if he did or didn’t, it doesn’t give him the right to put his hands on him.”

The officer replies, “Why not?”

The conversation escalates and the officer can be seen taking Craig to the ground, handcuffing her and pointing what appears to be a Taser at a teen girl, later identified as Craig’s daughter. A family attorney said Thursday the Taser was not deployed.

The officer is also seen taking the teen to the ground and handcuffing her. The woman filming identifies herself as Craig’s daughter and is heard yelling at the officer, telling him she’s filming and he’s “on live.”

The woman filming was also later detained, reports CBS DFW.

The video has sparked several calls for civil rights protests in downtown Fort Worth, the station reports.

In a statement, Fort Worth police say they became aware of the Facebook video around 10 p.m. Wednesday and their internal affairs unit immediately began investigating. Two of the three arrestees were interviewed at the Fort Worth jail and officials also interviewed witnesses and reviewed the Facebook video.

In a press conference, family attorney Lee Merritt said the officer was the one to “brutally escalate” the situation and called for him to be immediately terminated and charged. Merritt also called for charges to be dropped against his clients and for the man accused of choking the boy to be arrested.

“The man should have been placed under arrest; instead, the mother was questioned,” he said.

Why Conservatism is a Failure

Real easy now to see the failure of conservative philosophy…

The conservative formula is wrong: Why liberal states won America’s tax experiment

Conservatives have been telling us that a healthy economy depends on low taxes, few regulations and low wages

This originally appeared on Robert Reich’s blog.

For years, conservatives have been telling us that a healthy business-friendly economy depends on low taxes, few regulations and low wages. Are they right?

We’ve had an experiment going on here in the United States that provides an answer.

At the one end of the scale are Kansas and Texas, with among the nation’s lowest taxes, least regulations and lowest wages.

At the other end is California, featuring among the nation’s highest taxes, especially on the wealthy; lots of regulations, particularly when it comes to the environment; and high wages.

So according to conservative doctrine, Kansas and Texas ought to be booming, and California ought to be in the pits.

Actually, it’s just the opposite. For years now, Kansas’s rate of economic growth has been the worst in the nation. Last year its economy actually shrank. Texas hasn’t been doing all that much better. Its rate of job growth has been below the national average. Retail sales are way down. The value of Texas exports has been dropping.

But what about so-called over-taxed, over-regulated, high-wage California? California leads the nation in the rate of economic growth — more than twice the national average. In other words, conservatives have it exactly backwards.

So why are Kansas and Texas doing so badly? And California so well?

Because taxes enable states to invest in their people — their education and skill-training, great research universities that spawn new industries and attract talented innovators and inventors worldwide, and modern infrastructure.

That’s why California is the world center of high-tech, entertainment and venture capital.

Kansas and Texas haven’t been investing nearly to the same extent.

California also provides services to a diverse population including many who are attracted to California because of its opportunities.

And California’s regulations protect the public health and the state’s natural beauty, which also draws people to the state — including talented people who could settle anywhere.

Wages are high in California because the economy is growing so fast employers have to pay more for workers. And that’s not a bad thing. After all, the goal isn’t just growth. It’s a high standard of living.

Now in fairness, Texas’s problems are also linked to the oil bust. But that’s really no excuse because Texas has failed to diversify its economy. And here again, it hasn’t made adequate investments.

California is far from perfect. A housing shortage has been driving rents and home prices into the stratosphere. And roads are clogged. Much more needs to be done.

But overall, the contrast is clear. Economic success depends on tax revenues that go into public investments, and regulations that protect the environment and public health. And true economic success results in high wages.

So the next time you hear a conservative say “low taxes, few regulations and low wages are the keys to economic business-friendly success,” just remember Kansas, Texas and California.

The conservative formula is wrong.
