If you report a hate crime which would be very severe and it’s determined false, why wouldn’t you get some jail time?
Ariel Agudio and Asha Burwell, two former Albany University students who reported a hate crime against them that turned out to be false will be getting probation and community service. The story received so much attention last year that Hillary Clinton backed the trio of girls without checking out the story.
The punishment is definitely a joke, but the worst part of it is they branded innocent students as racist, they insulted their college and college officials, and they made a complete and total mockery of something that should be taken very seriously if it truly does happen. They didn’t do their own people any service here, they set the cause back.
When the only way you think you can get attention is to be a victim, this is a sad commentary on the state of our society as a whole. People have given up trying to gain success by achievement and accomplishment. Instead they flaunt various body parts and become victims of something.

The former University at Albany students who were convicted of falsely reporting a hate crime on a CDTA bus last year avoided jail time Friday, and instead received a sentence of probation, community service and a fine.
“There have been significant consequences already for what has happened, but I don’t think there’s any benefit in sentencing you to a jail term — no benefit for society and no benefit for you,” he said.
The year-and-a-half-long saga isn’t quite over yet. Attorneys for the women filed a notice Friday to appeal the convictions, though they won’t be seeking a stay of the sentence, attorney Mark Mishler said.
Prior to Friday’s sentencing, Assistant District Attorney David Rossi told the judge that his office had never been interested in jail time for the women, and indeed still wasn’t.
“This case has never been about jail for us,” he said. “It has been about taking responsibility and setting the record straight so the community would heal. The defendants have chosen this path instead. Even now, all we’re asking for is an apology.”
These young women are members of Black Lives Matter. It’s pretty hard to support your cause when you down right lie about something like this just to get attention! Not to mention, how it could ruin a good man’s life because of your lies! I have no sympathy towards your cause and never will!
