It’s bad enough that sexually immoral lifestyles get special treatment, but when they use that special treatment to unjustly accuse others, it really gets my dander up. A prime example is the case of a lesbian couple in Parker, Colorado.
Christel Conklin (29) and Aimee Whitchurch (37) called police last October to report a hate crime. Supposedly, someone had taken red spray paint to their garage door, spelling out ‘Kill the Gay.’ Then the couple notified police the next day that they found a noose hanging on their front door handle.
Since the garage door graffiti seemed to be aimed at the couple’s homosexual lifestyle, the FBI was called in to help the local police find whoever was behind the horrible hate crimes. The couple told the police that some of their neighbors and members of the homeowner’s association had taken issue to the couple not cleaning up after their dog. They suggested that perhaps one of them might be responsible for the crime.
After a careful and detailed investigation, both the FBI and local police concluded that the lesbian couple had actually spray painted their own garage door and staged the noose hanging on the front door handle. The couple has been charged with criminal mischief and false reporting of a crime. Whitchurch was also charged with forgery. The couple has proclaimed their innocence and vow to fight the charges.
If it is proven in court that the lesbian couple did fake their own hate crimes, I believe that they should be convicted of hate crimes themselves. If anyone else is convicted of the crime, they will surely be guilty of a hate crime, so why should it be different for the lesbians? If self-inflicted, the couple was using the same language and actions that are defined as a hate crime with the intention of making it a hate crime, therefore, they are guilty of a hate crime and should be summarily charged and punished accordingly.
