In case you live under a rock, Sharmeka Moffitt is the Louisiana woman who said that three hooded men doused her with a flammable liquid and set her on fire Sunday night in a park as she walked on a paved trail. The 20-year-old also said that they wrote a racial slur on her car along with the initials, "KKK". The story goes on to say that she was able to put herself out with a water spigot that was conveniently nearby before calling her sister and 911.
While everyone was outraged at the Klan for doing this horrible act, Nena Grace and I put our "Black cards" on the line and called bullshit, poppycock and shenanigans. We saw right through her story.
I asked some very straightforward questions about the situation. Questions that apparently no one else thought about since it was pretty etched in stone that the KKK did what she say they did:
1. Why were you at a park after dark anywhere in Louisiana alone? You live in Louisiana. You know better.
2. Three men set you on fire. You say you couldn't tell their race yet they wore white hoods. Why did you need to specify that you didn't know their race is they wore white hoods? What did they say to you? Did they do this in silence?
3. They wrote on your car. How did they know it belonged to you? You were on the trail.
I got a commenter who helped me out with 2 more questions:
4. You were able to call 911. Why wasn't your phone damaged from the fire or the water you say you used to put yourself out.
5. How did the Klan conveniently not set your face on fire? You were burned from the neck down.
After investigating the scene, police say they found a lighter and lighter fluid with Moffitt's fingerprints on them. That was proof enough for them to determine that she was not attacked by KKK members, and that the injuries were indeed self-inflicted. They also determined that Moffitt used toothpaste to smear the message and the KKK initials on her car.
She's in critical condition with over 60% of her body burned, and when she gets better, she'll probably be facing charges for lying on the Klan.
All I can think about is her poor mother who got on television pleading for justice against her aggressors. She's the real loser in this whole ordeal. The embarrassment she must feel. Now she has to see about getting mental help for her daughter, the one who set herself afire and blamed the KKK.
