Prosecutor: Neb. woman faked anti-gay attack

By Grant Schulte

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A former standout for the University of Nebraska's women's basketball team will be charged with lying to police for reporting that three masked men broke into her home last month, carved anti-gay slurs into her and tried to set her house on fire, a prosecutor said Tuesday.

Charlie Rogers, 33, who ranks second in career blocked shots for the Cornhuskers, told police the men broke into her Lincoln house July 22 and attacked her. Rogers, a lesbian, said one man pinned her down while another sliced a cross into her chest, cut the front of her thighs and shins and carved derogatory words in her arms and abdomen. She claimed they then rolled her onto her stomach and cut her buttocks, the back of her thighs and the back of her right calf.

Rogers crawled from her Lincoln home last month naked, bleeding and screaming for help, a neighbor told police.

Lancaster County Attorney Joe Kelly said a judge issued an arrest warrant for Rogers on Tuesday and that she'd likely be arrested later in the day.

No one responded to a message seeking comment left at a phone number listed as Rogers'.

The alleged attack led to a swift response from Lincoln's gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, which rallied that weekend outside the state Capitol.

Four Nebraska gay-rights groups that followed the case released a joint statement Tuesday crediting police for a balanced and thorough investigation.

"It is important not to focus on the actions of any single individual," the groups said in the statement. "As residents of Lincoln we must continue to bring our community together to declare that violence and hate are not the values of our city."

Making false statements to a police officer is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail. Kelly said Rogers will be booked at the Lancaster County Jail.

Investigators say they found no apparent sign of a struggle in the living room where Rogers said she was attacked, and an FBI forensic pathologist concluded that Rogers either cut herself, or allowed someone else to do it.

Police found a pile of clothes, white knit gloves and a red box cutter on the living room floor. Rogers said the gloves did not belong to her, but investigators determined that a lot of the DNA inside them belonged to her.

    So typical of the progressive movement, if truth is inconsistent with your cause, create your own truths!

    This is an example where city officials should come and take someone to the psychiatric ward for 30 days!

    Years and years of psychology and research of homosexuality always came up with the same conclusion that homosexuality is a mental illness. Never the less the liberal view has always treated it as a normal lifestyle. To make abnormal look normal the first thing was to soften the word homosexual to the word gay to make it more acceptable to the public. What is really amazing is how the different groups of homosexuals formed. They are of different gender matches but all support the homosexual movement of convincing the world that they are normal. The liberal media has fell into supporting and displaying programs that are shown to our children showing them that it is normal to be gay and glamorize it as a fad.
    When the liberals opened up new laws and political correctness made just for homosexuals it was a protection shield that gave the mentally ill a group that they could be a part of by becoming homosexual. This was a way for them to be accepted as normal. A abnormal mind can make any human be whatever they may be.

      “They are of different gender matches but all support the homosexual movement of convincing the world that they are normal.”

      The goal of the homosexual agenda is NOT for acceptance–that homosexuality is somehow “normal”. Their whole agenda is much more sinister: they have a political agenda. They want heterosexuality–and specifically–Christian morality to be outlawed–banished. They are not far from that goal. These homosexuals are tyrannical in every sense of the word. They say that they want acceptance and TOLERANCE, but they are liars. This is not just a political battle. This is a very real battle between good and evil. This fight goes eons beyond equality and acceptance. This fight is for the soul of our country. The proof of what I say is undeniable. Look at their actions if you need further proof. There was a group of Christian men who protested homosexual “marriage”. They stood outside various Churches with banners which indicated their desire to uphold the traditional Christian definition of marriage. In city after city the homosexuals assaulted these peaceful men with not just verbal assaults, but threw urine on them, poisonous insect repellent, and physical assaults. I witnessed this FIRST HAND because this happened outside of my own Church. One flamer took a Bible and tore pages out of it throwing the pages in the faces of these men while barking disgusting insults at them. This is a typical example of the homosexuals definition of TOLERANCE.
