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.

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.

(Partisan Ranger Note:  I think that things like this happen quite a lot.  In the 1990s there was a rash of arson at black churches in throughout the South.  The press whipped the public into a frenzy over the fires and cries of “the specter of Southern racism” was heard. Come to find out–and this wasn’t widely covered–the fires were set by black people. We need to repeal hate crimes legislation which is nothing more than thought crimes anyway.)

    This is common here too. They frankly feel so insecure, they and others feel a need to perform such acts to be noticed. As with “gay” pride days and other festivals of enlightenment, marriage and the desire to be seen as, well, normal?
    They and others of minority practices, well they, with quite a few exceptions, need to bang drums and parade their differences. Of course government has pandered to all minorities and hate crimes are, rightly or wrongly on statute. My personal favourite is the pan European “Holocaust Denial” law. For that read what you will, I certainly do.

    Now, I will not judge, God will. I accept them, they have been around forever and a day. Do I agree? Well Jesus taught to love and accept all, what I cannot stand is their insecurity. Just live your life without constantly being in folks faces. One thing is for sure, when they go to such lengths to be noticed, folk do notice, then form opinions. These folk, well, they keep quiet about it, but I bet I know what they are thinking.

    • I agree completely. What gets me is this….these people are constantly saying that they want to be accepted as normal. Okay fine. I could care less what adults do behind closed doors. But then they throw parades and run around in black leather demonstrating all sort of abominable behavior. Stuff that you would hid your kids from. They think that is normal? Now, to be fair, not all of them participate in things like this, but that is the outspoken voice of the group. If you want to be accepted, live your life and mind your own business. Don’t be forceful or whine about every little thing. Life is hard and it isn’t fair. Get used to it.

        It has been accepted in English country circles for years, it is known who, it is not commented on mainly. We have a few locally who get on with their horsey life and leave others alone.
        It seems to be the urbanisation and insecurity of younger ones, I suppose we can judge by what we see. I agree that behaviour at some of these events leaves much to be desired. It frankly does their cause very little good.

      • I agree. As you say, they have always been around and people have always known, but it was unspoken because that is part of private life.
