Hate Hoaxer Who Stabbed Himself and Blamed Anti-Semitism Now Faces a Felony Charge
A hate hoaxer from Farmington Hills, MI is being hit with a felony charge after fabricating a story about how he was menaced and stabbed by anti-Semites outside of a synagogue.
Sean Samitt, 26, is charged with filing a false police report on Dec. 15 of last year. He told law enforcement that he was the victim of a hate crime outside of Temple Kol Ami, a synagogue in West Bloomfield where he was employed at the time.
Samitt claimed a man approached him yelling anti-Semitic and anti-immigrant hate slurs in the parking lot of the synagogue. This culminated in a brief struggle with Samitt getting stabbed in the abdomen during the alleged altercation.
Law enforcement determined that Samitt made up the story and stabbed himself after they investigated the crime scene and checked the man’s Apple Watch. Police found no evidence of a struggle in the parking lot, but they did find bloody tissues in the bathroom of the synagogue as well as Samitt’s office. Data collected from the Apple Watch showed that Samitt never lost consciousness and his heart rate did not spike during the time in which the supposed altercation took place.
Samitt later admitted to faking the entire ordeal. He claims he did so because of his lack of satisfaction with his job as music director for the synagogue.
“I put the knife in to see like just how deep it went because I wasn’t really sure then in the process I probably dug it in a little more,” he said.
Samitt’s arraignment was scheduled to take place today in front of Judge Phyllis McMillen of Oakland County Circuit Court. His phony case is the latest in a trend of hate hoaxes perpetrated primarily by leftists hoping to play the victim with assistance from the fake news media.
The most prominent case of this phenomenon came from third-rate actor Jussie Smollett, who said Trump supporters with nooses and bleach accosted him on the streets of Chicago:
Sources within the Chicago Police Department have now told ABC 13 News that they believe Smollett staged a late January ‘attack,’ in which he alleged he was mobbed and beaten up by two white MAGA-hat wearing bandits. In Smollett’s story, the men placed a rope around his neck and poured bleach on his clothes.
Police believe that Smollett actually orchestrated the attack with the help of two accomplices in part because he was being written out of the show ‘Empire.’ Being the victim of a supposed hate crime could have persuaded the show’s writers to maintain his character’s role.
It’s believed that Smollett obtained assistance from two accomplices, Nigerian nationals who were extras on the show, in staging the event. Police carried out a search warrant on the homes of the suspected fraudsters, who seem to have been two men identified as persons of interest on surveillance camera footage from the night of the supposed event.
Cops had been aiming to trace the bleach and rope used in the alleged attack.
The men are said to have fled to Nigeria immediately after assisting in the hoax. Police executed the search warrant and brought them in for questioning immediately after they returned Wednesday. It’s possible that both of the men and Smollett could face criminal charges for their orchestration of the hoax.
Samitt’s felony charge will hopefully serve as a deterrent to other prospective hate hoaxers showing that there will be real consequences to their irresponsible actions.
