A teenager made false claims against 21 Latino Citizen Students and incited ANTI Blogs across the nation to rage with Racist Attacks against all Latinos.

From the start, it was obvious the girl was fabricating the story. She conducted media interviews and the videos and news articles were ripe with discrepancies. First, she made a claim that her Social Studies teacher required she complete an assignment to design a protest sign. Texas schools are participating in state testing, the TAKS test, in three weeks. If the class is a core class, she should be spending class time reviewing. If it’s an elective, those teachers know students need to be focused on their testing and aren’t assigning random projects.
Next, she said her poorly made protest sign, "If you love your nation, stop illegal immigration" was somehow magically passed around the cafeteria. She had no idea how it got passed around, she said. Then she said Latino children became angry. She did not know why. Then she claimed three of them jumped her in the hallway. She went to the assistant principal to report it. The asst principal saw no marks on the girl when the student asked to go home and instead kept her in school. The following Monday she came to the school with red scratch marks on her cheeks and bruises and scratches up her arms. She then picked out 21 Latino student pictures she alleged were involved in the incident and brought in new claims that students threatened her with rape and death threats.
Today, the investigation was complete. An independent analysis was completed of the school videotapes. School surveillance video captured Bowers injuring herself. Bowers parents have signed a letter of apology for Bowers' false accusations.
I started seeing reports of the girl´s allegations on Monday. The story was picked up immediately by the local newspaper. Various ANTI blogs got wind of it and spread it to Michele Malkin, Beck and Dobbs who published the accusations as facts and encouraged their commenters to post hateful comments towards not only illegal immigrants but to ALL Latinos in general. Some of these comments included sending all citizen Latinos back to Mexico. Most recommended putting all the 21 children on suspension and or jail immediately and the deporting of many of them although all were citizens.
I joined some of the comments and attempted to bring reason and logic back to the discussion.
My quotes: "Innocent until proven guilty", "let the police investigate" were my words the angry commenters did not want to hear. Instead they called me the usual names ANTIs toss at anyone with different opinions than theirs including "ethno-centric" "la raza" "rule of law" and names much too profane to print here.
My last comment on one of the blogs was:
"The Latino Community wants an APOLOGY for all of these False Allegations, anger, racial verbal threats, etc by the commenters here and on other forums. But don´t worry. We won´t hold our breath waiting for it!"
This story falls in line with the Arpaio article and all others that blame all the ills of our Nation on Latinos and Illegal Immigration. I blame the ANTI Community, Bloggers, Websites and her parents for this CRIME! Yes, False Allegations are a CRIME. Many in the ANTI Community constantly promote anger, hate and a RACE WAR against Latinos!
I Pray that this story will prove as an excellent example as to why we need to Stop the HATE and the Anger in these discussions. It is clear, WE NEED TO COME TOGETHER IN OUR NATION, AS A COMMUNITY! STOP THE ANGER AND THE HATE! WE MUST SUPPORT COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM!
I´m going back to all of these discussion boards and to DailyKos to post the update to this story.
Here are some links to some of the very racist ANTI Latino Comments:
(I wonder how long these sites will keep them up now that the allegations were proven false?)
These ILLEGALS and Anchor Babies are upset in "their" free schools when the SUBJECT is mentioned about the ILLEGALS invading the United States. And of course Mexico Complains Of Too Many Repatriated Mexicans. Heck, the mexican government doesn't even want their OWN ILLEGALS to return to their HOME COUNTRY, can you blame them for not wanting all the additional madness! The ILLEGALS and their Anchor Babies are wanted only by the U. S. Chamber of Commerce and ILLEGAL EMPLOYERS!

If those mexican kids have illegal parents here and they are babies born here, send them all back. This is where there needs to be change. Remind these ‘illegals’ that we appreciate our Constitution and if they want any of what we have they need to do it right

Anyone who has ever pissed off Mexican nationals (BB’s, borderbrothers) knows that there is a good chance they will come after you after dark with a carload of buddies, fair warning. Its sop, sorry pcmc’s but that’s the way the tortilla crumbles. Attacking whitey is dangerous unless you have a ten to one advantage that’s how I see it anyway.

I hope justice prevails and those who attacked her get punished severely. And maybe deported. Perfect. Jerks.

Our “educators” have been teaching brown and black children for decades that white people, collectively, “owe them” something.Now those children want to cash-out! Who can blame them? It’s a lot easier to indoctrinate children with hatred for their national heritage than it is to actually teach them to think.God forbid, what if a student ever asks why today’s white people hold a collective responsibility for crimes against blacks, for slavery, which happened 150 years ago. Yet today’s black people hold NO responsibility for crimes against whites, for the one-hundred white women they rape EACH DAY here in America alone? Why so bass-ackward?Why should whites hide their heritage, while browns and blacks get their “History Months” and TV channels? In areas where non-whites excell, it’s because of their skill, but in areas where whites excell, it’s because of RACISM!Anyone else tired of the scam?

If I were her father, I would be celebrating and congratulating her and not whining about the assignment.
Her next sign should read, “save our nation and deport latino illegal alien punk students first”, or “end the anchor baby rule”.
