College Student Faces Criminal Charges for Allegedly Faking Hate Crimes Against Herself
“It was very distressing to hear that a student fabricated racist threats, especially as those threats did so much damage to the reputation of other individuals and the university”
If true, this young woman is going to be in a world of trouble.

Smells like Smollett: California student faces felonies for allegedly faking violent hate crimes
In a case reminiscent of that of Jussie Smollet, one California student is facing felony charges for allegedly faking ten separate incidents of racist attacks or threats against her own on campus. Students rallied behind her, naive to the fact that she fabricated it all.
During one such report, Dominguez Peña was reportedly found bruised at the bottom of a stairwell, claiming that she had been beaten by a masked man, but denied medical assistance.
The campus community rallied behind Dominguez, believing that she had been the victim of targeted, violent, hate-filled attacks.
On March 9, the La Verne student was arrested by La Verne police and charged with making criminal threats and perjury, both felonies. She was also charged with seven misdemeanors related to electronic impersonation and filing false police reports.
It took multiple agencies over a year of investigating to bring this to light.
One professor told Campus Reform that rather than the students’ lies being indicative of a lack of real racism in the community, her actions reflect just the opposite: that racism is such a problem that people feel compelled to make up incidents.
“It was very distressing to hear that a student fabricated racist threats, especially as those threats did so much damage to the reputation of other individuals and the university,” La Verne professor Judy Holiday told Campus Reform.

Heads I win tails you lose?
If everything is a “sign of racism” then nothing is a sign of racism.
Which is a sign of the believers own racism and illogical magical thinking.
Investigating these imaginary incidents must have cost 100s of thousands of dollars over the year this went on, if she (or her parents) have the money I hope they have to repay it. There’s no way to repay for the racial hatred she churned up – and it’s racial hatred even if it’s vs whites (or “white hispanics”).
This sort of “look at meeeeee!” hoaxing will only diminish when the hoaxers face real consequences, expulsion from a school, firing if it’s done at a job, and criminal and/or civil penalties. And if their enablers face consequences for their gullibility and/or willingness to gloss over credibility problems, that would be great as well.
Impenetrable. That’s what they are. Completely impenetrable to logic or reality.
Yeah, they lied, but that’s because it was so bad that they had to make it up to draw attention to it?
Given the stupidity of Professor Holiday, why would anyone send their kid there anyway?
“…rather than the students’ lies being indicative of a lack of real racism in the community, her actions reflect just the opposite: that racism is such a problem that people feel compelled to make up incidents.”
This statement alone pegged my bullshit meter.
The smelly old “fake but accurate” defense.
