The devout Jewish owners of the local BerMax bistro in Winnipeg, Manitoba, claimed last week that they were the targets of a hate crime.
The mother claimed she'd been attacked from behind, until she passed out. Following that, a swastika and the word “Jew” was spray painted in black on the wall.
Local reporters at TheJ.ca quickly noted some inconsistencies in the story, however:
First about the timeline, and second about the facts.
This incident went from being labeled one of the worst hate crimes in Winnipeg's history, to the police charging cafe owners themselves with “mischief”. (It's important to note that the family denies staging the crime.)
This morning, workmen came to remove the signage outside the cafe.
The BerMax is now closing its doors.
I flew out to Winnipeg to cover this story, because it's important to find out what really happened.
Staged hate crimes are a serious epidemic that breed distrust, waste police resources, actually increase bigotry against certain groups — the list goes on.
We need to expose fake hate crimes no matter who perpetrates them.
