Boise State Student Who Faked a Hate Crime Against Himself Summoned to Court
December 20, 2006 12:00 PM ET | Permanent Link


A Boise State University student who police say admitted he made up a report of a violent antigay hate crime against himself—but not until after the report inspired hundreds to march in two campus vigils—could now face court action. In November, the student had said a white male used antigay expletives and knocked him unconscious; he had cuts and bruises to prove it. Then, after police initiated an investigation, the student confessed he had never been attacked and had actually used "a stick and his fists to self-inflict his injuries," police told the Boise State Arbiter. Now, police have summoned the student to court on charges of resisting and obstructing officers. Last month, police told the Arbiter that filing a false police report can yield penalties of up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Don't know much about the school, but I worked for a few months for the Forest Service up there. We were based out of Boise (lived in the Boise National Forest, though). From what I remember, the city is pretty cool. It's a nice size- big enough to get decent places to go, but not too big. I liked it a lot more than other places I've been.

In general, I liked Idaho quite a bit. Some nice riding, but I didn't see much that was stellar. Tons of great opportunities for all sorts of outdoor stuff in general, though.

It's close-ish to Sun Valley, supposed to have some pretty prime mountain biking once the snow melts... Which may take a while. I was just there last weekend. Ridiculous amounts of snow. I wonder if people read the posts before they reply. Numerous people have pointed out it's in Idaho. Hmmmm

(Note: Yes someone commented about riding in Sun Valley, per a video. I for one, have experienced it "first hand")

And yes, the blue field looks kick a$$ on HDTV

Skiing, whitewater, hot springs, wilderness close by.
Boise is a small city that's got the usual small city growth issues from getting caught with it's pants down when people were moving there. It's not coastally hip, but for a former cowtown there's decent bistros, clubs, and microbrew.
