>The police are still determining whether she or the two men will face criminal charges. She should absolutely be charged. This hoax crime bullshit has got to stop. I wonder how many police resources were diverted because of this?

Well that was an emotional roller coaster scrolling down and reading the post titles just now. >”A 16-year-old girl was kidnapped while walking with her mother in The Bronx, police say” – 7 hours ago >”The 16-year-old girl kidnapped in The Bronx has been found safe, police say” – 5 hours ago >”Bronx Girl Seen Kidnapped in Video Admits It Was a Hoax, Official Says” – 56 minutes ago Is this a record for when a story like this broke before it was confirmed as a hoax?

Where was Jussie Smollett at the time of the incident?

This went from “Kidnapped” to “Found Safe” to “Hoax” *really* quick in my feed. What a ride.

‘She told police she had set up the kidnapping because of her “overprotective” mother, an official said.’ ‘fuck this shit i’m out!’ – Mom…~~proba~~ hopefully
