Three masked men snatched a Queens college student off the street, threw him into a van, and robbed and threatened to kill him as they showered him with racial epithets, police said Friday. …
“Get out of my country, you sand n—-r, or I’ll kill you and your family,” one of his attackers said, according to police.
“I’ve never been targeted,” the entertainment technology student said. “I am just a regular guy. I have no friends. Nobody knows of my political views. I stay to myself.”

A Queens college student who told cops he was thrown into a van and robbed by three masked men yelling racial slurs made up the chilling attack, police said Saturday. …
Police declined to provide details about why Farooqi lied, but said he recanted his entire story. No word on whether [or] not he will be charged with false reporting.
During America’s ongoing hate hoax craze, I have to say, cops have done a better job of keeping their heads than anybody else.
Why does the average cop appear to be better at figuring things like this out than, say, Harvard Law professor Cass Sunstein?
