|Don't arrest me, I'm a former Navy seal. Ohio man created a phony racial panic.|
Chris Heben served our country as a Navy Seal. When he got back into his hometown of Akron, he used his freedoms to be a judge of character. He would concoct a story about him being in a sports car when he nearly gets into a wreck with another vehicle.
He would say that three Black men would jump out the car with some yelling profanities at him. One in particular brought race into the issue according to him. Then after a confrontation, Heben was shot in the stomach. So instead of calling 911 for assistance, he would "PLUG" his wounds and jump into his vehicle to chase after the shooter.
That story was too good to be true. Heben managed to attract media attention and stirred the White extremist online with this story. This was going towards that Asshat Colin Flaherty's narrative that Blacks are violent and attacking White people talking point.
Turns out that the FBI, Bath Township Police and the Summit County Sheriff didn't buy the story and Haben is going up the creek.
“We have overwhelming evidence based upon video, cell phone records and interviews that the shooting did not occur in the West Market Plaza and that Mr. Heben made false allegations to us,” Bath Township Police Chief Mike McNeely explained.
Besides the public shaming, he got a scar, a court date and probably a whole lot of explaining to do to his family, his friends and probably the Black community. The community often accused by White people as the perpetrator of every single aspect of crime in America.
I am guessing he'll say that he suffers from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and he was on his meds when he self inflict his wound.
He also has other criminal charges during his rise to fame. Some included forgery.
In Dayton this year, a bus driver claimed that he was shot by three unknown Black assailants. The bus driver claims that the Black assailants wanted to join a gang so they had to kill a "polar bear". So in other words, the imaginary Black man was hoping to kill off a white person (known as polar bear) to the kookspiracy.
Rickey Wagoner was given the pink slip from his job at the Greater Dayton Regional Transit Authority bus line and is under investigation for forgery and fraud.
This stuff rings echos to how White male conservatives view Black men. They see nothing but criminals. That's why you hear that nonsense about Michael Brown "charging" at Officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, MO. That's why you hear comments about imaginary injuries on the perpetrator.
