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 l
ost 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.
