Lesbian Couple Charged With Staging Hate Crime

A lesbian couple who claimed they were victims of a hate crime have been arrested after police determined they staged the incidents.

On Oct. 28, Aimee Whitchurch, 37, and Christel Conklin, 29, called police and reported the words “Kill the Gay” were scrawled in red spray paint on the garage door of their Parker, Colo., home.

The next day, the couple told deputies they found a noose hanging on the handle of their front door.

The women told officers they believed the incidents were retaliation from their neighbors and homeowner’s association, who had complained the couple did not pick up after their dogs. [What a classy couple!]

Due to the nature of the crimes, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office worked in tandem with the FBI to investigate. After reviewing witness statements, authorities determined Whitchurch and Conklin had staged the incidents.

Both women are charged with criminal mischief and false reporting. Whitchurch faces an additional charge of forgery.

She told ABC’s Denver affiliate KMGH-TV police were mistaken and vowed to fight the charges.

“This is a fight I started. This is a fight I’m going to finish. This is a fight I’m right on,” she said. “I have every right to live where I want to live.”

  1. I bet the red paint is real hard to get off.

  2. … Your hands I mean.

    Maybe the dogs did it…

  6. pm125 says:

    They should have just cared for the dogs and been considerate, especially in an association where others probably perform dog duties out of consideration for them.

    Why weren’t they charged with hate crime or intent to?

    The amount of obnoxious behavior from this camp grows exponentially.

    This isn’t exactly unusual. Snoop around the web a little – you’ll find a surprising number of ‘fake’ incidents in the area of political correctness.

  11. AnnAsher says:

    “this is a fight I started” is an interesting statement by one who claims to have been attacked. If that were true, wouldn’t the attacker be the one to have started the fight?

    Now, for real– my sister-in-law’s neighbor’s house (and car) were maliciously spray-painted for having a pro Prop. 8 sign in their front yard back in 2008. http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/local/south_bay&id=6472609

    More and more I think that one of the most distressing signs of the decadence of our civilization is that we kill our babies and give their place to pets.

  14. torch621 says:

    Are they really that desperate to ram through acceptance of homosexual vice?

  15. acardnal says:

    Excellent point, FrCharles!

  16. brotherfee says:

    Well, this is probably due to some priest refusing them communion, leading them to get their knickers in a twist. (:-

  17. Kieninger says:

    It would seem that, in the current nonsensical legal climate, two lesbians staging a hate crime is in itself a hate crime.

  18. Jael says:

    Margaret’s link worked for me.
