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
Six placards attached to nooses were hung in a park in Milwaukee. They contained the names and photographs of black people killed by the police and private citizens. It appeared to be racist taunting. But investigators now say that they were put there by a black man, who said he placed the placards in the park and at Atwater Park in Shorewood in an attempted to invoke a community dialogue about "how Black and brown men and women are dying" in the U.S.. The police decided that no crime was committed.
