Despite video evidence, a 911 call in which one of the ‘victims’ jokes about “beating up a boy,” and a case strong enough to lead an African-American DA to charge the women for fabricating a hate crime, an upstate Black Lives Matter group has penned a letter of support to the African-American women who are now facing criminal charges.

Upstate New York Black Lives Matter Organization shared a letter addressed to Ariel Agudio, Alexis Briggs and Asha Burwell, the three women who made up being assaulted by “20 white people.”

The letter indicates that despite fabricating a hate crime that sparked protests at their school and even led to one student dropping out due to threats of violence, the group stands by them.

“We’ve got your back,” the letter states.

Rather than denounce falsifying police reports and exploiting their movement, the shared letter instead sought pity for the women, saying they had opened themselves up to “calculated violence from members of the general public; as well as members of the UAlbany student body and faculty, social and news media, and local law enforcement.”

When Agudio called 911, she was caught saying twice “I think it’s so funny,” before explaining that she “beat up a boy.”

As the call is transferred, Agudio’s tone changes almost immediately as she tries to tell the dispatcher that she and her friends “got jumped” in a “racially” motivated attack.

Additionally, the girl who had seconds ago said she “beat up a boy” now claimed that “we were three black girls beaten up by 20 white people.”

Charges were filed this morning against the three women, who each chose to plead not guilty. According to the charges, there were multiple victims who were struck multiple times by the three women.

One investigator deemed the report filed by Agudio to be “false and baseless.”

One of the true victims endured cervical sprain and/or bruising.

Here are the mugshots for the women who made up the race crime.

The judge presiding over the case stated “If proven those charges do have an impact on our community.”

“This case had already done enough damage on out community it’s like an open wound, I would like it resolved so our community can begin to heal,” she said.
