The headline syntax is jumbled to me, but maybe I'm just reading it wrong and before coffee...

It seems that “racial/ethnic/homophobic slurs scratched on the victim’s body and/or belongings” is a particular characteristic of a hoax that is not usually found in real hate crimes, which also do not get the same media attention. It’s horrific that this woman injured herself so severely, what was going on in her life that she felt compelled to do this to herself?

What was his name? Morton Downey, JR? Was he the first? In any case he hoaxed himself with swastika written on his forehead (backwards) and then there was Tawana Brawley who wrote racial slurs on her body (I don't recall which came first) and then there was the Republican lady who wrote "O" on her face and on and on.

Ashley Todd. Wrote a 'B' backwards (an 'O' would have worked). She was a College Republican National Committee field agent in Pittsburgh. Came to them through Ron Paul.

You're not reading it wrong, it's a word salad.

This poor woman. She obviously suffers from mental illness.

I hope she gets help.

That's right! LOL! It's not funny but it is how they get caught lots of time - the mirror reverse writing.

It's a sign for help - desperation.

We really need to de-mystify psychology/psychiatry and make it as routine as going to the dentist as a medical procedure.

The word you are looking for is de-stigmatize. It's no mystery, but for some reason shame remains attached to having the chemicals in your brain get out of balance, but not if the chemicals in your spleen or your liver are out of balance.

A sign for help? Really? Falsely testifying? It's reprehensible.

And while this story and the famous Tawana Brawley antecendant featured African American "victims", certainly white people have been guilty of this same sort of stunt just as often.

Tawana Brawley didn't put herself in the ICU. I still see a very mentally ill person.

I certainly hope this woman recovers and gets appropriate mental treatment. But mentally ill and "criminal" are independent. Most mentally ill people commit no crimes.

I guess you missed when I mentioned white people like Morton Downey Jr and the Obama B carving Republican white woman who did that to themselves.

All I am saying is almost everytime I hear such a story it turns out it is self inflicted be they white or otherwise to the point I am instantly suspicious.
