fake hate crimes: a database of hate crime hoaxes in the usa



The purpose of this site is to compile a comprehensive database of the false reports of "hate crimes" committed (mostly) in the USA. It builds on the work of Laird Wilcox, whose Crying Wolf (PDF) is the original book on this subject. The books Hate Crime Hoax and Hate Crimes: Criminal Law & Identity Politics are recommended, as are the websites Watching the Watchdogs and Fake Hate Map.

summary
Matthew Schultz, a student, wrote “Gonna shoot all black people…….. A smile tomorrow.” Another student allegedly sent a screenshot the post on YikYak to the police, but altered so it only showed the first five words. Police arrested the student for domestic terror, a 20-year felony, although he was later charged with disturbing the peace, a misdemeanor. The charges were ultimately dismissed.
