Fictitious 'Hispanic Male' Blamed After Texas Woman Accidentally Shot in the Back by Idiot Friend
OK, I replaced "reckless" with "idiot." I think it's a superior headline.
Fictitious 'Hispanic Male' Blamed After Texas Woman Accidentally Shot in the Back by Reckless Friend
Police in San Antonio say a group of friends panicked after one of them accidentally shot another in the back, and tried to pin the whole thing on a "Hispanic male" who never existed.
Three men and two women were inside a car near the Las Colinas Apartments on Chase Hill Blvd, having just returned from picking up a gun.
One of the men, a 19-year-old, was reportedly handling the weapon in a "reckless" manner when it suddenly went off, striking one of the women in the lower back.
According to investigators, the friends who were rounded up told officers that the shooting took place during a robbery attempt by an Hispanic male who forced his way into their vehicle.

8. And Charles Stuart...
Charles Stuart (1959-January 4, 1990) was a Boston man who murdered his pregnant wife and inflamed racial tension by blaming a non-existent black suspect.
On Oct. 23, 1989, Charles Stuart, a furrier, and his pregnant wife Carol (born Carol DiMaiti, March 26, 1959), a lawyer, got into their car after attending childbirth classes at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
According to police, Stuart shot his wife in the head and himself in the stomach, and then called 911 on his cell phone. Carol Stuart died that night, after their son, Christopher, was delivered by cesearean section. He suffered seizures due to oxygen deprivation, and died 17 days later after his father discontinued his life support.
Stuart blamed the crime on a black man. The Boston police aggressively pursued black men without probable cause. They suspected one Willie Bennett, and on December 28, Stuart fingered him out of a lineup.

9. I remember that--the bum ended up killing himself. Jumped off the Tobin...no chance of
surviving that fall. His brother turned him in.
I wasn't living in the area at the time, but I followed the news closely because it was my old stomping grounds.
