More hate crime silliness

You may recall last week the university professor that was sentenced after commiting a hate crime on herself. Well apparently stupidity strikes twice (via Say Anything):

Police said a 22-year-old man was charged with filing a false report about a hate crime.
Floyd Elliott, of Independence, told police that on Dec. 14, two subjects attacked him in the parking lot of his apartment complex. He said the attackers cut him in the stomach, branded him with a hot knife, and attempted to carve the word “Fag” on his forehead

Investigators were suspicious about the report because the head carving was backwards, as if done while looking into a mirror.

Vandalizing your car is one thing, but vandalizing your forehead is something completely different. File that one under the big fat moron.

Maybe he and the professor can be bunk mates in prison.
