St. Paul, Ramsey County, Minnesota. White man shoots himself in the shoulder, then concocts a tale of shooting by black man to cover it up. See similar case here
September 12, 2017.
St. Catherine's University Campus security guard Brent Patrick Ahlers
dialed 911 to report that he had been shot in the shoulder by a black suspect with "short afro" wearing a navy blue sweatshirt and black jeans. He was taken to hospital to be treated for his injury, and the university where he worked was put into lockdown while police began a search for the suspect. Four police dogs and a helicopter were called out to search for him, while the fictim stayed in the hospital.
September 13, 2017.
Police called off the search for the black suspect and booked Brent Patrick Ahlers
for falsely reporting an incident. According to the fictim, he accidentally shot himself at work while playing with his gun and made up the shooting incident to avoid being fired for having a gun at work. St. Catherine's university announced that Brent Ahlers was fired from his job.
So there you have it. Another white man making false claims against fictional black people to cover his own ass. No, Brent Ahlers wasn't racist like Sherry Hall or other similar people, but his fictimhood put the entire local area on alert and locked down the university where he worked. If a suspect fitting the description of the shooter was found, it is likely they would have been killed, and that would have caused a riot. Was it worth it, just to keep his job? Probably not.
