Albany County D.A. David Soares announced Monday that three defendants were indicted by an Albany County Grand Jury on charges related to an alleged incident that occurred on a CDTA bus on January 30th.
Ariel Agudio, Asha Burwell and Alexis Briggs face several charges, including 3rd degree Assault and Falsely Reporting an Incident. The three UAlbany students had said they were attacked on board a CDTA bus because of their race. Audio and video from the bus did not support the allegations. The case went to the grand jury after the three 20-years olds refused a plea deal that would have required an apology.
Oh, and there's also this...
Investigators say a review of multiple videos of the incident showed no evidence the women were victims of a crime or subjected to racial slurs. In fact, police said the women were the aggressors, assaulting a 19-year-old white woman.
Police said surveillance and cellphone video, as well as eyewitness testimony, contradicted the women's account. The white men Agudio, Burwell and Briggs claimed assaulted them were actually trying to break up the fight.
"I especially want to point out that what happened on the bus was not a 'hate crime,'" University Police Chief Frank Wiley said in a statement, according to the Albany Times-Union.
Hillary Clinton, your response?
There's no excuse for racism and violence on a college campus. https://t.co/ADVghl4iEv -H
Good lord, doesn't Hillary have access to basic Google? Hell, even Bing would work. In a pinch. If you have to. This is similar to when Hillary and Obama trot out the "wage gap" statistic. Everybody who's conducted a basic amount of research knows it to be false, yet they parrot it as a talking point regardless.
At a certain point, assuming ignorance is far too generous. I've got to believe that they're not idiots, that they know better, and they just don't care anymore.
