"Police previously said they were treating case as a possible hate crime.
An 11-year-old girl's report last week that a man tried to cut off her hijab as she walked to school didn't occur, Toronto police said Monday.

"After a detailed investigation, police have determined that the events described in the original news release did not happen," police said."

Reported hijab attack on 11-year-old girl 'did not happen,' Toronto police say

Didn't see this posted, please delete if it was.

So it looks like another false report. Another attempt to anger people and further divide the already fragile state of things?

I can't imagine why this keeps happening. It only casts doubt on real events. I don't think people know fully the damage they do in cases like this.

Any thoughts?

Yeah, fake missile attack, fake muslim attack, fake news everywhere.

People are hungry for news other than Trump's tweets, and nothing significant is happening in the world right now, so people are making up things to get attention.

Despicable. There is plenty of ACTUAL vitriol toward Muslims, the desire to needlessly manufacture stories such as this only serves to further drive the wedge that divides us all.

A divided populace will never come together to fight the true enemies of humanity. Very sad.

It's such a dangerous thing to do! And for what? A few days of slight fame, and now a mess.

Not worth it.

As you rightly point out, the question to be answered Is, what is the agenda?

Attention, and victim praise, would be my guess.

I wonder how much the parents had to do with this 'false' report.



No agenda here.


Glad the liars got caught.

They usually do in these cases, eventually.

Sad that it keeps happening.

Well someone has to stir the pot to keep the you versus me going. Who do you think will report on a fake attack like the OP reported? MSM. DUH.

Got to fit that narrative of hating the white man.

It sounded like a pretty viloent attack.

Before it turned out to be a lie..

Of course it didn't happen!
People have to manufacture 90% of the opression and racism in the west. From the pastor burning his own church writing pro Trump slogans on the wall to a highschool football player writing racist epitaphs on his own car.

It's just a bunch of oppression Olympic athletes competing for the number one spot. It's to the point when an actual legitimate racist is found it gets a resounding "meh" because the idiots have desensitized to it from hearing it every day.

Every story like this now I automatically blame the claimed victim first and that's not good. But it's what the leftists have done with this situation.

Good job leftists...

How many times does the "fake attack on Muslims" act have to be tried.

Earlier, the article in the OP has social media comments from a Canadian politician warning about the dangers of Islamaphobia. It seemed very odd considering this whole thing was a lie in the first place. They seemed to have removed those Social Media posts from the article now. Even with a false report the narrative is "watch out for hate crimes". SMH. Shouldn't the narrative be "Don't believe Inital reports of attacks on Muslims"?

It's my first instinct to doubt the reports, much like the assault craze.

And that is unfortunate.

There are plenty of events of significance happening right now.... Unfortunately, they are against the Liberal platform and big government, so the news outlets don't want to cover any of it (See Mark Lambert indictment and surveillance bill reauthorization).

What's the Go-To news when you want to disregard news that matters?

Racial Issues.

My God. Don't people ever doubt these kind of stories? They always seem way to contrived.

Living in inclusiveness, while people outright LIE about the attacks.

Besides these stories are worth no more than the other ones that you hear on the news. Just a crime that some person committed. I'm certainly not outraged by it.

Just another day to me.

When I first heard of the attack, my first thought was the same: "when will it be found out the attack was a lie"?

Why is this story more important that the other crimes or fake attacks that occur around the country??

Anyone care to answer that question?

I don't think it's more important.

It's just one of many, showing an awful trend happening.
