What's the motivation here? Maybe longing to hear oh poor me are we? Maybe we're looking for cash like that waitress?

What an idiot! Unfortunately, this isn't the first and it won't be the last time we hear about incidents like this. What could possibly compel a person to be so stupid??

I guess you really cannot fix stupid.

So she sprays the graffiti, and then proceeds to leave the aerosol cans in the fire pit IN HER OWN YARD?

Wow, just wow.

Oh well, give her the same penalty as people get when they actually commit such a crime.

It's really sad that their final football game was cancelled because no one stepped forward and took blame for unsubstantiated charges. That school official is going to be in some seriously hot water for their decision.

Indeed...stupid hurts and ya can't shine a turd. Using racism and then claiming to be a victim of it. How could anyone possibly question her? It's RACISM after all!! Closest thing to a hanging offense on any lawbooks in the country. Anx some still wonder why so many of us are just fed up hearing about it.

How about that stupid school administrator saying they didn't cancel the game as a punishment, but to keep the kids safe? What a load of bull!

As for possible motives, one of the commenters on the local news site could have been right. He said they probably did it to build a case to move their son to a better school. Maybe the kid was being bullied, but they wouldn't transfer him, so they found a way to get the transfer, get back at the bullies by canceling the game and hopefully getting them in trouble, and building a case to sue the district. That's complete conjecture, but it would make a good motive.

The sad part is if they would have falsely accused someone who wasn't guilty.

Ann Coulter has a whole chapter in her book Mugged recounting self-inflicted racial attacks like this. I wouldn't say it's epidemic, but it is pretty common, and has been for about 25 years. I think last year was the 25th anniversary of the Tawanna Brawley case.

Sad part too is that this is major modus operandi for the Democratic Party. Disagree with their policy, why you may as well have just spray painted racist epithets all over their house. Press conference at 10:00 AM EST.
