Investigators say Kee, 20, eventually admitted that he perpetrated the hoax because he hoped to receive the same kind of attention received by the student who allegedly received the anti-Semitic note.
A Muslim student at a liberal arts college in Wisconsin has been arrested for spray painting reprehensible anti-Muslim messages on his own dorm room door and then filing a report claiming that he was the victim of a hate crime.
The totally fake hate crime occurred last weekend at Beloit College, a 1,400-student bastion bursting with idiosyncratic individualists who enjoy leftist politics.
The student who falsely claimed that he was a victim of a terrible hate crime is Michael Kee, campus police told regional Fox affiliate WQRF-TV.
There were three spray-painted messages — all in bold red. In addition to “Sand nigger go home,” the other two messages read “#muslimban” and “Die,” according to a contemporaneous account by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
There was also a red swastika spray-painted on a wall across from Kee’s room on the third floor of Bushnell Hall, an ugly slab of concrete on the Beloit campus.
