Texas man vandalizes own truck with anti-police messages, blames it on Black Lives Matter activists

http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.2366870.1442690663!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_1200/vandal20n-1-web.jpg

A Texas man who received $6,000 from sympathizers after he claimed miscreants vandalized his truck with anti-police messages has been arrested after authorities say he scrawled the graffiti himself.

Scott Lattin was hauled away from his home in handcuffs Friday by police who say he lied earlier this month about how the "Black Lives Matters" messages and expletives were spray painted on his white pickup truck.

The disabled veteran had blamed vandals, telling Fox 4 News his truck was targeted because his family visibly backed law enforcement officers.

He had "Police Lives Matter" written on the rear window of his car and blue ribbons tied around his property to show his support.

Remind you of anything? Surprised he didn't try to carve BLM into his cheek backwards because he used a mirror.

2. he is lucky that he didn't have a registered handgun

in the glove box and a permit... because that is a sure way to get shot when the police pull over your stupid f'ing ass in your fake vandalized truck.

Oh wait, that only applies to black people and broken tail lights.

I remember it well, but this story is 10 months old.

6. I hope he gets the help he needs

 

Also we shouldn't forget that people have have done similarly stupid things. A woman in Nebraska faked an attack on herself for being a lesbian. A black woman in Louisiana lit herself on fire and blamed it on white guys in hoods.
