Michigan: White Man Falsely Accused Of Urinating On 5-year-old Black Child

Michigan: White Man Falsely Accused Of Urinating On 5-year-old Black Child

“it’s so important to wait until all the evidence has been gathered and the criminal investigation has been completed before jumping to any conclusions”

https://youtu.be/FWQUiAr6FII

We often cover fake hate here at LI, but this case in Grand Rapids, Michigan is particularly disturbing because it involves children.  Several black children under the age of eight concocted a story about a white man urinating on one of them.

It turns out that the children had invented the story about the white man (it was one of the children who had urinated on another child) to avoid getting in trouble.  The fabrication, however, resulted in the arrest of an innocent 60-year-old man and the usual outrage-before-facts from the left.  Even the local NAACP weighed in with their outraged outrage.

Michigan Live reports:

A story about a white man urinating on a 5-year-old black child and calling her a racial slur was fabricated, police said.

Grand Rapids police and prosecutors late Friday, Aug. 24 said they determined the story was not valid and said no charges would be issued against a 60-year-old man arrested following the initial report on Wednesday.

Police said several children, all 7 or younger, were playing together sometime before 6 p.m. Wednesday when one of the children urinated on the 5-year-old girl.

Kent County prosecutors said the parents of the children, in talking with them, ultimately determined the children “concocted the story to avoid trouble.”

The prosecutors also issued a word of caution about waiting for facts before jumping to conclusions.  Given that the left thrives on stoking division, the advice will likely fall on deaf ears.

Michigan Live continues:

In the initial report, the children told police they were playing hide-and-go-seek along Courtney Street NW, just west of Tamarack Avenue, when a man urinated on the girl through a chain-link fence.

The suspect was a person who lived in the neighborhood and did odd jobs.

“The community and members of the media were understandably interested and concerned about the allegations, Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker said.

“But this is a prime example of why it’s so important to wait until all the evidence has been gathered and the criminal investigation has been completed before jumping to any conclusions,” he said.

The falsely accused man reportedly has a history of mental illness and is registered in the Michigan sex offender registry.  According to local reports, a neighbor reported the crime to police after the little girl showed up on her doorstep saying a white man had urinated on her and called her racial slurs.

Watch:

The local NAACP called the incident that never happened a case of “child molestation” and a “hate crime” and demanded prosecution to the “fullest extent of the law.”

WZZM reports:

The Grand Rapids branch of the NAACP issued a statement related to the incident. In the statement, they say that they are demanding the suspect be prosecuted to the “fullest extent of the law.”

“This is clearly a case of child molestation, as well as a hate crime, and should be treated as such,” said NAACP Grand Rapids Branch President Cle Jackson.

It’s not clear whether the local NAACP has issued a retraction in light of the facts of this case.

On the bright side, it was the parents of the children who came forward and told police that the children had made up the story to avoid punishment.

Kent County prosecutors said the parents of the children, in talking with them, ultimately determined the children “concocted the story to avoid trouble.”

“We appreciate the conscientiousness of the parents in bringing the matter to the attention of the police, and continuing to ask their children questions as new evidence was obtained,” prosecutors said.

Good parents. A blessing to every community.

If a white person is named as the offender against a black, immediately with out any investigation or facts; it becomes a racial issue, and the immediate response is, a immediate demanding of results. The reverse situation,if it is a black on white issue is; “Lets wait until the results of the Investigation are in”

    Milhouse in reply to Silverfox031. | August 27, 2018 at 9:37 am

    Um, no. It became a racial issue not because he was white, but because the complaining witness claimed he had called her a racial name while he was doing it. In the same circumstances, where a black person is alleged to have assaulted a white person while calling her a racial name it is always treated as a presumed hate crime, pending further investigation, exactly as was done here.

    The usual case, of course, is where there is no such alleged name-calling, and therefore no indication of motive, and in such cases while professional hatemongers such as the NAACP may be quick to allege racial motives, the authorities do not.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 9:47 am

      C’mon you can’t really believe that to be true, can you?

      No news race fanning outrage if the allegation was that he urinated on her without saying anything?

      gospace in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 9:51 am

      How about compiling a list of other races who’ve been charged with hate crimes against white? Even with clear and compelling evidence that there was a racial component? And show me the nationwide coverage of any such happening on all the major networks.

        If you are unaware of black people being charged with hate crimes against white people then you are living in a bubble, exactly like the SJWs we poke so much fun at.

        In 2016, law enforcement agencies reported that out of 6,063 single-bias hate crime offenses, 4,229 were motivated by race/ethnicity/ancestry. Of these:
        • 50.2 percent were motivated by anti-Black or African American bias.
        • 20.7 percent stemmed from anti-White bias.
        • 10.6 percent were classified as anti-Hispanic or Latino bias.
        • 4.2 percent were a result of bias against groups of individuals consisting of more than one race (anti-multiple races, group).
        • 3.8 percent were motivated by anti-American Indian or Alaska Native bias.
        • 3.1 percent resulted from anti-Asian bias.
        • 1.3 percent were classified as anti-Arab bias.
        • 0.2 percent (9 offenses) were motivated by bias of anti-Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander.
        • 5.8 percent were the result of an anti-Other Race/Ethnicity/Ancestry bias.

          The social scientists, if they didn’t have their heads in their asses, would say that there is a huge underreporting discrepancy in those figures. Consider the white proportion of US population and disparate proportion of black crime to proportion of US population.

          Without intention, you scored points for his argument (even though the blank list was a bit of hyperbole).

          gospace in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 11:21 am

          How many of that 20.7% were prosecuted as hate crimes?

          How many of that 20.7% were reported in headlines- anywhere, even locally?

          gonzotx in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:03 pm

          Lol it’s rare they claim a black on white crimes is racist. You will need to triple that number.

          alaskabob in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:33 pm

          Ah, it’s still statistically significant that there is greater bias against non-Blacks. Correct for percentages of population. I think certain stats are over reported but even so this is a non-starter.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:36 pm

          There is no reason to suspect underreporting. The vast majority of crime in the US is not motivated by bias.

          How many of that 20.7% were prosecuted as hate crimes?

          All of them.

          How many of that 20.7% were reported in headlines- anywhere, even locally?

          How many of the 50.2% were so reported? Not very many. Most crimes go unreported in the headlines because they’re not interesting enough.

          Lol it’s rare they claim a black on white crimes is racist.

          Because most of the time it’s not. There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever of any reluctance by the police or the FBI to report anti-white bias crimes when they occur. And they do occur, regularly, but only 40% as often as anti-black bias crimes.

          “Zimmerman and the Baltimore cops were not at all typical cases.”

          Actually, blacks organizing to violate other people’s civil rights go far beyond those cases.

          Which is irrelevant to the topic at hand.

          Besides which, whites organizing to violate other people’s civil rights goes back much longer.

        Milhouse in reply to gospace. | August 27, 2018 at 10:20 am

        There wasn’t nationwide coverage of this incident either.

          gospace in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 11:23 am

          Which is why it’s being talked about everywhere. Obviously it wan’t reported because no one knows anything about it.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:40 pm

          It’s not being talked about everywhere. It was being talked about almost nowhere outside the local area until the man was cleared. Now it’s being talked about on right-wing sites like this one, only because it turned out to be false. If the allegation had been sustained none of us would ever have heard about it, except those of us who happen to live in western Michigan.

      Obakemono in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 10:19 am

      Wrong. In this country if you are white, male, straight, work you are automatically guilty. PERIOD. If the kids only said that “a white man urinated on me” that would have started the firestorm, but by adding the “racial slur” to the mix it added fuel to the fire. There is no more “innocent until proven guilty” in this country anymore because of the rampant political correctness BS. Politics/political correctness and the financialization of everything has poisoned this country and will be it’s downfall.

        Milhouse in reply to Obakemono. | August 27, 2018 at 10:23 am

        That is simply not true. It does not fit the facts on the ground. White, straight, employed men are exonerated all the time, literally many times a day. And no, if the kids only said that “a white man urinated on me” then the police would not have assumed it to be motivated by race, though they would of course have looked into that as a possibility.

          Obakemono in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:07 pm

          What rock have you been living under? I’m white, male, straight and work AND I am in an interacial marrage (wife is Asian) and I still am looked at like the bad guy at work. I live and work in Middle Georgia. I see the race card thrown around everyday where I work at and it allows those types to get away with doing mostly nothing 90% of the time. The same goes for the service industry around here, the attitudes thrown around when you are the customer and are white.
          With the MSM constantly throwing whites under the bus and supporting Antifa and those types only amplifies the problem. Open your eyes to the real world and what happens on a daily basis rather than relying on charts and graphs. It’s not just about “crime” but overall society and how those interactions affect people.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 12:43 pm

          If that is your experience at work you should look for another job. Or perhaps, if you can prove it’s not just happening in your mind, you should file a complaint about a hostile work environment. But we are not talking about your workplace, we are talking about the law. We’re talking about what sort of criminal charges are filed against whom. And there’s simply no basis for this paranoia that makes some white people imagine themselves as victims.

          ConradCA in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 1:14 pm

          What about Zimmerman? The cop who killed Michael Brown? The cops who where persecuted for doing their job when Freddie Grey committed suicide? They were targeted without any evidence of wrongdoing and face a life as future victims of black racism!

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 2:22 pm

          Darrell Wilson was not charged. The law did right by him. His department didn’t. Zimmerman and the Baltimore cops were not at all typical cases.

          Arminius in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:27 pm

          “Darren Wilson: Ferguson made me unemployable”

    If you said white, Outhouse would say black. If you said black, Outhouse would say white.

    It gets him excited, but it’s tedious.

Tawana Brawley. Did this hoax unravel too quickly for Sharpton to raise money off of it?

    Sharpton made a fortune of that, Tawana was the start of his entire public career. It took years for her story to fall apart, and then Sharpton was already a democrat darling and had moved on to bigger and more lucrative pastures.

    Sharpton profited immensely from that scam, and never paid any kind of price for it. Tawana got left in the gutter when it all blew up, of course.

      Milhouse in reply to Tom Servo. | August 27, 2018 at 12:51 pm

      It did not take years for her story to fall apart. It only took a few months. It’s true that Sharpton did not end up paying the judgment against him, since his rich friends paid it for him, but Alton Maddox lost his law license.

Pretty disheartening that kids under 7 know they can get away with things by making up fake anti-white stories.

    casualobserver in reply to Close The Fed. | August 27, 2018 at 9:54 am

    Have you never spent time around a gang of mischievous 5 year olds before?

    Milhouse in reply to Close The Fed. | August 27, 2018 at 10:27 am

    “Anti-white” had nothing to do with it. Kids make up stories all the time, about all sorts of people, and they always think they can get away with it. White kids make up stories about black men doing things to them just as often as black kids do about white ones, and of course they also make up stories about people of their own races, both men and women. Often they do get away with it, but often they don’t, as in this case.

      healthguyfsu in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 1:39 pm

      You’ve been careful to supply data above to support your claims. Do you also have data to support this one?

      Whitey is the boogeyman in many black households, qualitatively speaking. Look no further than black parents giving their kids “the talk” for evidence of that.

        Milhouse in reply to healthguyfsu. | August 27, 2018 at 2:25 pm

        Look at the day-care witch hunts in the ’80s and ’90s. Those were not racial. Or if you know any five-year-olds, just watch them. They make up stories all the time, and aren’t always clear on the difference between their stories and reality.

          healthguyfsu in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:08 pm

          See Milly, here’s where you fail a bit. I made a qualitative statement because I don’t have figures of how many kids are given “the talk” about white people.

          Even without data, I can provide a source of research about this problem.

          http://www.people.hbs.edu/mnorton/norton%20sommers.pdf

          However, you made this statement: “White kids make up stories about black men doing things to them just as often as black kids do about white ones, and of course they also make up stories about people of their own races, both men and women.”

          That kind of statement requires quantitative backup to stand firm because of the comparison made.

          Milhouse in reply to Milhouse. | August 28, 2018 at 9:57 am

          healthguyfsu, it stands to reason. Kids make up stories, and small kids don’t know which stories are not going to stand up. Small kids aren’t even clear yet on the difference between truth and fantasy, and can convince themselves their stories are true. So it stands to reason that they will tell whichever story comes into their heads, and there’s no reason stories about white people should occur to black kids more often than stories about black people will occur to white kids.

          Even among adults, for every Tawana Brawley there’s probably a Susan Smith.

          Oh, and “the talk” is not a bogeyman. It doesn’t depend on a fantasy that white people are monsters. All it takes is acknowledging the reality that your kid bears a physical resemblance to a lot of criminals, so people — especially cops — who don’t know that he’s not like that are going to be wary of him. White cops, black cops, purple cops, they will all see him and consider the real possibility that he’s a violent person, so he has to be careful not to do things that will make them decide he probably is. Someone who doesn’t resemble so many criminals doesn’t have to be so careful. For the same reason, if you are or look Arab, you need to be more careful in an airport than people who don’t look like that need to be. It’s common sense. You know you’re a good person, but other people don’t.

Close The Fed | August 27, 2018 at 9:41 am

Okay, I’m wrong. Not disheartening. Scary. It’s scary. I’ve had an illegal alien make up a fake story about me by acting like she didn’t understand English, when she knew English well enough to dislike what I said.

It’s all garbage.

On the bright side, it was the parents of the children who came forward and told police that the children had made up the story

I’m not seeing much of a bright side. I’m seeing a bunch of dumb kids manipulating both law enforcement and “the community”—the knee-jerk black mob—and doing it easily. And they didn’t even have to go to the usual effort of finding some rope to make fake nooses they can hang on local trees. Goddamn 7-year-olds can destroy civil society at whim. And the SJWs will be along any second now, with their spray cans of “Duke Effect” (bottled essence of Mike Nifong and the Gang of 88) and braying that the fact that it was fake doesn’t matter, it’s still an alert to the widespread crisis of old white guys urinating on black juveniles and somebody has to do something . . . preferably something involving looting and rioting.

People are missing the real point here. It is not that the media, the NAACP and local LE all bought into what should have been a rather fantastic story, but that these small children concocted such a story in the first place.

This faux white-on-black racism has become so pervasive in society, that small children expect adults to believe an outrageous story, simply because they are black and it fits a common, though false, narrative. And, even more disturbing is that the ADULTS believe it; to the point of arresting a man. This is the same disturbing and destructive behavior found in the MeToo movement and similar social movements in today’s society. It will destroy this society, if left unchecked.

    Milhouse in reply to Mac45. | August 27, 2018 at 12:56 pm

    Small children expect adults to believe all kinds of outrageous stories, and always have done. And too many adults fall for it, forgetting what liars they were when they were small. Race has nothing to do with it.

      Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 1:01 pm

      What ARE you talking about?

      This was all about race. These children, apparently, specifically chose a racial narrative. And, without the pervasive “white people are all racist” meme in society, it is doubtful that it would have been widely believed embraced by the media or LE.

        Milhouse in reply to Mac45. | August 27, 2018 at 2:30 pm

        These children chose a racial narrative. Other children choose different ones. The racial aspect adds nothing to this story. This happens all the time, with all kinds of narratives, none of which are significant in themselves. Kids pick up their material from what they hear. The important thing is that adults should be aware that not everything a child says is true.

          healthguyfsu in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:10 pm

          Head in sand mentality.

          Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:25 pm

          ” Kids pick up their material from what they hear. The important thing is that adults should be aware that not everything a child says is true.”

          That is exactly what I said. These children chose this excuse because they have been taught that the white man is the Boogeyman. And, the Boogeyman is evil and will get you if you are black. They learned this from their parents, their community and society. So, their excuse became “the Boogeyman did it”. This is tragic enough in and of itself. But, it become even more tragic, and downright scary, when supposedly rational adults not only believe this excuse, but actually go out and arrest a person on the basis of a LIE.

      A story about racial slurs that has nothing to do with race. Okay.

        Milhouse in reply to userpen. | August 27, 2018 at 2:31 pm

        It’s a story about a false accusation. The precise details of the accusation are not relevant, because it could have been anything.

          userpen in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 3:45 pm

          “The precise details of the accusation are not relevant.”

          What? Of course the precise details are relevant. They are relevant for the man who was arrested. They are relevant for the police who arrested him and locked him up. They are relevant for the NAACP who still insist on waiting for the DNA results to come back before exonerating a white man accused of crimes against the black community.

          Lamonte McIntyre was recently released from prison following being wrongly imprisoned 23 years for double murder. He might have said later, if he was going to be falsely accused, he wished it would have been for jay walking instead of murder.

          Mac45 in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:19 pm

          “It’s a story about a false accusation. The precise details of the accusation are not relevant, because it could have been anything.”

          You are entering the Twilight Zone, here. The NAACP got involved because it was originally reported as a racially motivated incident. The PD arrested this guy because it was reported as a racially motivated incident. It got that media play that it did because it was a racially motivated incident. While is true that the children could have come up with any number of other scenarios to explain the little girl getting urinated on, maybe a big dog or somebody threw a cup of urine out of a car window, they chose one which was based upon a racially motivated attack upon a little black girl by a white male adult. What you have to ask yourself is why did they pick that scenario? And my answer is because the children [and others] in our society are being indoctrinated to believe that white-on-black violence is epidemic and that blacks are always the victims of such violence. And, it is all a LIE. But, liberal society refuses to acknowledge that. And, so it continues.

I do not believe that white culture’s weird preoccupation with “fairness,” “due process,” the “truth,” and exposing “hoaxes” should prevent your typical Grievance Studies adjunct from Drawing Important Lessons from this Sad Episode™. This could be a “hands up don’t pee” teachable moment.

Blacks SEARCH OUT “racism” over which to be fake-outraged.

The most appalling thing here is not the lie, but the world these children must live in that gives them the idea that such a lie will work. Clearly the adults in their lives are teaching these children to be victims, and to hate anyone not like them, and it is disgusting.

    Milhouse in reply to NotCoach. | August 27, 2018 at 2:38 pm

    Kids that age believe any lie will work. They haven’t yet figured out which lies are more plausible and which are less. As it happens, it didn’t work.

      userpen in reply to Milhouse. | August 27, 2018 at 4:23 pm

      “Kids that age believe any lie will work.”

      Not so.

      A black kid peed on another black kid. They wanted to deflect the blame and lay it on a stranger so they wouldn’t get into trouble. But instead of saying a black man did it, they thought it would be more plausible to blame a white man. To make it even more convincing, they threw in some racial slurs.

      If, as you said, they haven’t yet figured out which lies are more plausible and which are less, they might have said a green martian did it, or a wild horse, or something out of their imagination. But instead of going with any lie, they went with what they believed adults would find more credible.

      “As it happens it didn’t work.”

      Well it did work and it was believed to the point that someone was arrested. It was only later that one of the children confessed.

“Kids that age believe any lie will work.”

The amusing thing is they grow up believing it. And there I sit in the hot seat having heard of decades of lies. I’m listening to an eighteen year old lying to me. And I’m thinking, “Do you really think you are going to get away with this?”

    DINORightMarie in reply to Arminius. | August 27, 2018 at 7:09 pm

    Are you a defense lawyer? Or a parent or counselor who has had to deal with this”phenomenon”?

    Just wondering because you say “…I just sit int he hot seat having heard decades of lies….”

DINORightMarie | August 27, 2018 at 7:14 pm

First thing that came to my mind:

Why would these children think of THIS LIE to tell? Answer – because they knew their parents and others would believe it (or so they thought….good on these parents for NOT falling for this!).

Reminds me of the Salem Witch Trials and the group or mass hysteria that obsessed so many to believe these children concocting lies that resulted in the executions of so many innocent people.
