A man in Malden, Massachusets claimed that two white men approached him while he was at a bus stop and referenced lynching him after stating this was “Trump country now.” He then went to tell the police, investigators jumped on the incident and dedicated many hours and resources to the case. After wasting police resources, things began to fall apart after the police re-interviewed the alleged victim and he admitted to fabricating the whole story. He then claimed that he did so to “raise awareness” about the state of the country.
