    Woman in fake acid attack charged with theft

    (CNN) -- Prosecutors have charged a woman who admitted throwing a corrosive liquid on her own face with three counts of theft from people or companies acting as Good Samaritans, Clark County, Washington, officials said Monday.

    A warrant has been issued for her arrest, the Clark County prosecutors' office said.

    Bethany Storro "did obtain control over" at least $750 each from Michael Kite, Anytime Fitness and Safeway during the time she was promoting the story that she was attacked on August 30 by an African-American woman with an athletic build and slicked-back hair pulled into a pony tail near a Vancouver, Washington, coffee shop, according to prosecutors.
    Throw the book at her. This was a truly disgusting act, that spurred racism, and also caused a black woman, who looked like the description the woman gave, to go into hiding. It also created a little racial arguing here at DP. I do not have the words at this time to be able to describe how I feel about something like this. Just "disgusting", which doesn't even begin to go far enough.

    Article is here.

    I would in most cases of false reporting agree with your assessment but I think it's a pretty good bet this woman is in need of some serious counseling of the mental variety.

    She is going to have to live with the result and physical scars for life but the mental ones may lead her to do something more drastic if she's pushed too hard in the wrong direction.

    I worry about people like this and I'm no bleedingg heart liberal I just know a few people who got the help they needed and turned their lives around.

    I also knew some people who didn't get that help and they are no longer with us.

    I'm just not quick to judge in these cases.

    Sure, give her the help she needs, along with the appropriate jail time, since she is the one responsible for her actions.

    Let me jump in here, even though you ask the question of someone else. I don't know whether racism played a role in the accusation itself, but it certainly played a part in the aftermath, when people were believing the story.

    read the other thread on this issue, "those" people are not silent.

    Is it racist? probably.

    What is really racist? Those who are screaming to throw the book at her. why were they conspicuously silent when Tawanna Brawley and Crystal Mangum were taking money from people for their false accusations. why were "they" not screaming to throw them in jail for ruining the reputations of innocent people? Why were "they" not calling for their heads for stirring up feelings of racism? why?? because many people somehow feel that only whites can be racists.

    Does this nutjob need to be held accountable for her actions? yes. I can only hope the next time some black girl decides to false accuse a white guy people remember how they reacted to this case and act/react consistently.

    Someone remind me how many days Tawana Brawley and Crystal Magnum spent in jail due to making their false claims? Sentence this girl to the exact same amount of time and force her to pay the exact dollar figure of restitution Brawley and Magnum have paid their victims. (note Brawley was sued by one of her falsely accused victims for around $385K IIRC...to date she has yet to pay a dime.)

    who says they were?

    and circumstances are a bit different for brawley. she had a step father who beat her, and she was a scared 15 year old. her "parents" clearly were behind most of this. sharpton did pay, btw.

    see that's the trouble I have with liberals, they are always looking to make excuses for the bad behavior of those they favor. Do you know anything about the background of this white girl? maybe she had a step father who beat her, maybe she has a verifiable medically caused mental condition. You don't know...you just assume. that is where the racism comes in.

    assume the worst about the white girl
    make excuses for the black girl

    I personally think she is a seriously disturbed individual who was seeking publicity and attention. Why did she claim her attacker was black? the same reason most people who make false claims blame someone from another race...human nature.

    From what I've read, she's expected to make a full recovery (ie, no scars) so whatever punishment the authorities give her is all she gets.
    Otherwise, she's going scot-free.
    I not only wish they'd throw the book at her, I wish some corrupt cops and vengeful citizens would trump up some false charges too, just so she'd know how it feels.
    If I lived there, I'd be tempted to report that I observed her lurking in the bushes at the local playground, molesting children.
