Why would a mugger give a hoot about a bumper sticker he noticed on a car AFTER he just robbed a person and most likely just has one thing on his mind, getting the hell out of there?

The whole account seems forced to a certain degree, what with the Obama supporting mugger and the description of a large black man and all.

Does anybody think critically anymore????



You're right !!!

This all smacks of devilish conservative/racist plot, heck I hear the girl is a McCain volunteer and knifed up her own face as a desperate last ditch vote winning ploy. I mean, who ever heard of large black men robbing people at an ATM, the very notion is ludicrous.

(Objectivity it seems is in short supply these days.
)


No one every said that such a person does not exist. The problem is that the POLICE are saying her statement has changed and there are many inconsistencies in it from what she has stated before. Meaning, SHE IS FULL OF S>>>!

Like I said in my last post, if someone is going to rob another person, they aren't going to take their time after getting the loot and miraculously spotting the bumper sticker to 'teach them a lesson'. They are going to run. They have their money. Why risk anything else? Unless the intent was to rape which it obviously wasn't.

I will wait to see what the police investigation comes up with. I bet they will come out with exactly what you stated. She did this herself either for a) an attempt to make Obama supporters look like loons and criminals and/or b) to get attention for herself. I bet she is going to try and sue Obama now for his 'people' attacking her for having a McCain bumper sticker.

Let's wait for the facts folks before getting silly on this one.

Even if this is totally true it really doesn't matter. Only a dipstick would claim that you can characterize many millions of people by the actions of a single person.

We have serial killers in America. That doesn't mean that every American is a serial killer.

Here is the way I see it.

Story is true=Lunatics don't need a reason to do crazy things.

Story is hoax=Lunatics don't need a reason to do crazy things.

Story is True=I feel bad for victim, I will send positive thoughts of speedy recovery.

Story is hoax= I feel bad for lady, that was a pretty dumb move.

Who in this thread was attributing this behavior to all black people? Why does someone always have to make it about race?

If it's a hoax, I don't feel sorry for her at all. A story that has a racial component created to make a political point? I hope she goes to gaol to be honest.

What?? Where did I mention blacks or race? I was talking about attempts to characterize Obama supporters. They're not all black, you know.

I want to know how it is known that the sticker set him off. Did he shout something? Is the 'B' for Bush?

This is bound to turn off the (according to Murtha) PA racists.


This is how we know - from a New York Post Article (www.nypost.com...)


"[She] reported he punched her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground, and continued to punch and kick while threatening to teach her a lesson for being a McCain supporter."

Richard said the victim said the attacker called her "a lot of names and stated that 'You are going to be a Barack supporter'," pinning her hands down while carving the letter B on her face "using what she believed to be a very dull knife."

Wowzee. That about wraps it with a nice pretty bow.



Unfortunately, it appears to be a desperate hoax. Just sad.

I think your right. The fact that she forgot to mention that she was sexually assaulted but remembered about the $60 being taken does make it seem like a hoax. I would think that someone who was sexually assaulted in such a situation would have a vivid memory of the incident shortly after it occurred.

My perspective is our world needs a helping heap of empathy and understanding. If the story is a hoax she needs serious help and I hope she finds it. The law will see to any applicable punishments (I hope).

TMZ is reporting that the ATM camera does not show Todd at the ATM at the time of the alleged attack.


New info from the Pittsburgh Police Department -- there is a gaping hole in the story of the woman who claims she was attacked because she's a McCain supporter. The PD has released a statement saying "We have received photos from the ATM machine at the Citizens Bank and the photographs was (sic) verified as NOT being the victim making the transaction." In other words, the woman who says she was attacked at the ATM machine wasn't there at the time of the alleged attack.

Ya i was watching local news, they said there are inconsistencies in her story now.. A brain surgeon can tell she did that B in her face like that...

I think she got someone to punch her in the eye and carved the b in her own face.. or smacked herself wit a door or something..

Story rates: Bogus..

And yes I am from pgh...

Police: McCain volunteer changes ATM attack story

22 minutes ago

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police say a McCain campaign volunteer who said she was held down by a black man who cut the letter "B" in her face has changed her story.

Police spokeswoman Diane Richard says investigators gave the 20-year-old woman a lie-detector test and are "looking at some inconsistencies" in her story.

The student, Ashley Todd, of College Station, Texas, initially said a black man robbed her at knifepoint Wednesday night and then cut her cheek after seeing a McCain sticker on her car.

Police say bank surveillance footage doesn't show her at an ATM where she says she was attacked.

Todd, who is white, now says she was knocked unconscious and doesn't remember being cut. She now says she only discovered the wound later.

AP


Not at the ATM, huh?
As I said...it's a hoax.

Black mugging Obama supporter carved up a backwards yet perfect "B" on a poor little white girl?

The black boogey-man strikes again.

What a McShame.

thanks for providing the link, so it seems the hoax scenerio is looking the most likely at this point then.

This is so much BS I can smell it through my monitor. Stupid move by a stupid person to try and change the election. Not going to work when you have stuff like in my siggy being said. They need to realize, like some Republicans in the House have, that McCain lost. But what I think is funny in one commercial the GOP SCREAMS!! about Obama and the Dems controlling all of Washington. You know, like how the GOP did for 6 years...

I think it's make-up. The white of her eye is perfectly clear, no red, no swelling, just charcoal color. No blue, purple or red that usually accompanies bruises...

I actually don't think there was an attack at all.

Among other things, police said photos and bank card information from an automated teller machine where the college student claimed she was robbed do not show her using the machine at the time, police said.

Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard wouldn't release the polygraph results, but said, "we're still looking at some inconsistencies" in the woman's story.


I smell a rat.. But I will reserve those thoughts for when the polygraph is released to the public. I just hope for her sake she is telling the God honest truth. As if she is making this story up.. I would hope she would face charges herself.

Police also say bank surveillance footage doesn't show her at an ATM where she initially said she was attacked.

New Development:


BREAKING NEWS A Pittsburgh police commander says a volunteer for the McCain campaign who reported being robbed and attacked near a bank ATM in Bloomfield has confessed to making up the story. Police say charges will be filed. More details to follow.


KDKA News Pittsburgh

If this pans out, I hope that this person is removed from the campaign and issues apologies to the police, the public and both campaigns.

My GOD. This is disgusting. Why do people do these things. I wonder if this girl is anyway related to Susan Smith.
