Police State Gay You Tube Vlogger Faked Homophobic Assault

Calum McSwiggan's post on Instagram stating he was the victim of a homophobic assault
There is a rise in gay people faking hate crimes against themselves. Previously, the Judiciary Report wrote about the case of a gay man, who beat himself and set his home on fire, stating he was attacked by homophobes (Man Confesses To Police He Beat Himself Up, Carved Gay Slur Into His Arm, Set His Home On Fire And Filed Hate Crime Police Complaint Blaming It On Homophobia For Attention).

Another high profile case of gays faking homophobic attacks has surfaced. You Tube gay vlogger, Calum McSwiggan, has been charged with filing a false police report, for faking a homophobic attack on himself. He has also been charged with vandalism. The charges are misdemeanors, punishable by jail time and fines. He has been released on $20,000 bail pending trial or a plea deal. 

McSwiggan filed a police report stating he was attacked by three homophobes outside a gay bar in Los Angeles, but police found no injuries on him. However, they did witness McSwiggan vandalizing a police car. Then, while they had him in custody and he thought no one was watching, police officers observed as he inflicted injuries on himself with "the handle and receiver of a payphone inside the cell."

McSwiggan began to beat himself with the phone receiver, which due to their design and composition, can do a lot of damage to a person. McSwiggan used the payphone receiver to give himself three broken teeth and a head injury that required six stitches. McSwiggan blamed his injuries on homophobes outside the club and stated, "The authorities should have been there to help and protect me." This misconduct resulted in criminal charges being filed against McSwiggan.

There are gay people who have actually been attacked, some killed, over their sexual choices (Transgender People In Legal Trouble For Deceiving Straight People Into Sex While Others Are Killed Over Sexual Deceit ). It is wrong to attack anyone, gay or straight. People have a right to dwell in safety. Having written that, I must also state, going around faking hate crimes is a terrible idea. It will make the public less likely to believe gays who say they have been attacked. Remember the story of  "The Boy who Cried Wolf" and take note.
