Black woman set on fire by white men in Wisconsin
On Wednesday (June 24), a Black woman in Madison, Wisconsin reportedly suffered third-degree burns after four white men threw lighter fluid and a lighter at her face while she was in her car. Speaking with Madison 365, 18-year-old EMT Althea Bernstein said the assailants yelled a racial slur at her before the attack.
“I was listening to some music at a stoplight and then all of a sudden I heard someone yell the N-word really loud,” she told the outlet. “I turned my head to look and somebody’s throwing lighter fluid on me. And then they threw a lighter at me, and my neck caught on fire and I tried to put it out, but I brushed it up onto my face. I got it out and then I just blasted through the red light... I just felt like I needed to get away. So I drove through the red light and just kept driving until I got to my brother’s [home].”

She is beautiful. I hope they all burn in Hell for what they did to her.

Sadly all signs point to this being a hoax.
Her story keeps changing. She initially claimed the men threw lighter fluid on her, then that they used a spray bottle. Some were dressed in all black, some were in bright “floral” shirts.
She claims they yelled at her while she was driving, so her left side is exposed to them but the burns are all on the right side of her face.
She says after the event she drove to her brother’s house then her mom’s house. Her mother didn’t take her to the ER until the next day. This young woman is studying to be an EMT yet didn’t think to have her 2nd & 3rd degree burns attended to immediately?
No hair singe. Her brows and lashes are all there, even on the right side. The hair at her temples and the nape of the neck is all there and unsigned too.
These are not 2nd or 3rd degree burns. Even after scraping and cleansing at the ER, burns that deep don’t look like hers. These are most likely friction or abrasion burns.
She is very light skinned. At night, in the dark, a pack of roaming frat boys single out this girl in a car for a racist attack? Okay, then surely there is traffic cam footage?

Unfortunately this looks to be a young woman seeking out attention. She’s biracial and adopted, both her parents are white. This has been a common factor in some of these hoaxes: a biracial person, who is sometimes dismissed as “white” or an “Oreo” thinks being the victim of a racial hate crime will somehow affirm their blackness.

Sounds like a hoax.
If I’m on fire or have suffered burns. I would pull over and try to get help, not drive through to my relative’s house.
Also if it’s true as some posts say, that her story has changed including important elements of the attack, then yes it’s looking like a hoax. Just like that girl who said some racist classmates cut off her hair at school.
I feel sorry for people who instigate hoaxes because they likely have unresolved psychological issues. On the other hand, their need to be victims is being encouraged by the current narrative and social climate promoted by hardcore left. Victim status is mow something to be coveted and proud of, so now we have young people clamoring to claim victimization. It induces some psychologically unbalanced people to commit hoaxes because the desire is so great to be an individual recognized as a victim, collective victimhood aside.

I'm still trying to figure out how she got burned on the right side of her face when she says the guys came up to her while she was driving and threw lighter fluid onto her. That would burn the left side of her face. I find it hard to believe a bunch of racists would come up on the passenger's side of the car and throw lighter fluid on her when they could get to her more easily on the driver's side.
And if they did attack her from the passenger's side, you'd expect her to have burns kind of all over the right side of her face. Her injuries look very concentrated, like they were inflicted at close range.
There has to be surveillance camera footage out there if this really happened.

R48 You're right. I just watched her interview and burns are on the left.
|by Anonymous||reply 49||06/29/2020|
Yes the photos were reversed.
But those are not 2nd or 3rd degree burns regardless. 3rd degree and you would see the skin peeled back in layers all the way down to the yellow fatty tissue and muscle. They’re not 2nd degree either since there is no blistering which is what happens when a burn penetrates the epidermis (top skin layer) down to the dermis (second layer).
They look like road rash. She might’ve fallen while running and hit her face. There were protests in Madison that night maybe three blocks from where she said this occurred. Maybe she was a part of them, the cops came and she and other protestors took off. Seems plausible.
|by Anonymous||reply 50||06/29/2020|
This still seems fishy. In her interview, she did the crying thing where no tears come out.
She said they used a spray bottle on her. A spray bottle would spread the lighter fluid all over her face. If her face caught fire, wouldn't there be burns all over her face and not just in those very concentrated spots? Wouldn't her hair be singed, too? Wouldn't she have burns on her left arm? Wouldn't her clothes have burns on them? Has anyone seen what she was wearing when she was attacked?
She said they tossed a lighter into the car. Was the lighter recovered?

R50 The first thing I thought when I saw the scars was that they looked like scrapes, not burns. Even when I've burned myself, like when my arm hits the iron or I accidentally pick up a hot cookie sheet or something, I'll blister. And when the blistering subsides, the scars don't look like the scars she has.

Watch her in this interview. Tell tale signs of attention seeking.
At the :37 mark, she "cries" without tears and talks about how she can't sleep and has no appetite.
Then at the 1:52 mark, she "cries" without tears again and says she hopes her attackers "see all the responses" (i.e, see how much attention I've gotten and how people love me now?) and that they know "they hurt her" (i.e., I've been hurt and victimized throughout my life and I want people to know it).
I dunno. It could be legit, but she just comes across as very Munchausen-ey.

Lighter fluid comes in a squirt bottle. Lighter fluid drips down and evaporates quickly. Zippo lighters are the only lighters that will stay lit without assistance. I can’t think of any other lighter that will stay lit without manual pressure on a trigger. Any other lighter will go out as soon as it leaves your hand. Zipped aren’t cheap or disposable.
A portion of her hair would have caught fire if there had been an accelerant-based flame on her face.
Fortunately for her, she’s built in her “I’m too traumatized to remember any details”.

The other part of this story that makes me suspicious - she says it was a group of men who attacked her.
Most fake attack stories always seem to involve more than one person or a violent group - rarely a lone person doing the attacking.
It's like she's trying to create the most scary story she can to garner sympathy.

It’s called debridemebt and it is sometimes used in the case of very severe burns, like 3rd degree. It would not be used on the superficial wounds on this young woman’s face. A burn, if it is one, like hers would be treated with gel (KY no joke!) and gauze.

I think the family are setting up their defense if this proves to have been a hoax. They will claim she’s dealing with mental illness or trauma from her past abuse. The media’s angle will be something like, the racist microagressions of being a biracial woman in America caused her to do this!
Interesting to note the family have a spokesman doing their PR.

Another hoax-like statement that she gave was her description of her attackers as typical white frat boys and something about them wearing dark shirts. When dumb people lie about fake attackers they’ll use trite or stereotypical words to describe the assailants while giving nonspecific details like color of clothing as opposed to physical descriptions.
The fact that law enforcement officials have not released any pleas to the public to help find these racist morons who attacked her, this is concerning for her supporters. I also do sense that she may have mental health issues that contributed to her actions. Maybe that is what her defense will be when truth is out.

Much too simplistic and politically convenient. If this was a real attack, it would have most likely been one guy and he wouldn't have done it out in full view. Odds are very heavy that he wouldn't be white, either. White men go on shooting rampages.
Since she claims this happened at a stoplight on a public street, there will security camera footage available to verify. It most likely won't show any white men in her vicinity.
Reminds me of Ashley Todd, the Republican who carved a B into her own face and claimed a group of big strong black men attacked her.

The burn injuries on her face just happened to miss her eyes/ eyebrows and hair. This is nearly impossible in an actual attack and I’m sure the medical staff at the hospital where she was taken for treatment a day later would note this on the medical chart. If this is a hoax her dumbest move was to go seek medical treatment since those records now are part of the official investigation. Medical staff are legally bound to chart their findings and the statements of the patient.

R111 Wasn't it her mother who urged her to get medical attention?

Then the nurses told her to call an ambulance, but the girl ended up driving herself to the emergency room instead.

She also said the hospital staff told her to wait to call the police until the next day when the pain medication they gave her had worn off. No fucking way any hospital personnel treating injuries from an alleged hate crime would tell a patient to wait to call the police.
This story is bullshit. And that pisses me off, because there are people out there who are ACTUAL victims of racist violence. Many of them have died because of it.

R114 My partner is a nurse practitioner who works in the ER, and he said if a person came to the hospital with burns on their face claiming they had just been set on fire in a racist attack, the first thing he would ask them is if they called the police. If the person said "no," the hospital would call and have an officer come to the ER to take their statement, pain medication or not.
My guess is that she lied and told the ER personnel that she had already talked to the police.

I think the only mitigating factor is actual mental illness contributing to false police report/ hoax. That said, she is not mentally ill to the point of not knowing right from wrong. So she should still be charged with making false police report. Just because you’ve got emotional issues it doesn’t absolve you of legal retribution.

The longer time there is between reported attack and law enforcement imploring for public’s help in finding perpetrators, the more likely it’s looking to be a hoax.
I just watched her interview clip on GMA a few days ago. She looked rehearsed in body language. After each sentence describing how she felt and how she’s coping, she would pause to make a sad or emotional expression. There’s something off about her eyes, they don’t match her facial expressions. Her eyes dart left and right as well as open wide in almost astonishment. To me she came off from those clips as emotionally unwell.

R139 It was watching her interview that initially made me suspicious of her story. You're right - her body language and reactions were "off," and the fact that she would cry without evoking tears was a big "tell" for me.
Overweight girl, home schooled, probably doesn't have a lot of, if any, friends, biracial, sees an opportunity to get some attention in the middle of these racially charged times.
Apparently, there are surveillance cameras all over where she says she was attacked. If the attack had been captured on any of those cameras, law enforcement would have released the footage and asked for the public's help to identify the attackers. No word from the police on surveillance camera footage. That's because it didn't happen.

Marc Feldman is one of the world's experts on factitious disorders. This includes factitious victimization (as in, a hoax like this). It screams borderline personality.
It's a fascinating and depressing psychopathology. This book is interesting.
I wrote this on another thread, but factitious disorder is a milder form of Munchhausen syndrome. Real Munchhausen is a severe disorder. Most of its victims are male and homeless, and they wander from city to city in search of hospitals that will treat them. They also develop what's called "gridiron abdomen" -- basically a mass of scar tissue from so many surgeries. One Munchhausen patient (who eventually committed suicide) kept reinfecting wounds. He had had almost all of his fingers and toes amputated as a result.
Munchhausen patients very rarely admit to their behavior. When confronted, they flee. They sometimes kill themselves unwittingly, in their efforts to remain sick. (They have a penchant, for example, of reinfecting their wounds with feces.)
There is a subtype of factitious disorder, Ganser's syndrome, in which patients pretend to be mentally ill. I remember reading some study that concluded Ganser patients who fake schizophrenia have a worse prognosis (after ten years I think) than actual schizophrenics.

This hoax should not just quietly go away and the family should release more than just a cryptic statement of “let her heal”. Althea should apologize publicly for trying to publicly incite violence knowing full well the possible sequelae of racial events fomenting more animus and violence. She may have psych issues but she does know right from wrong. Being a fantasist dreaming of attention for being a victim and perpetuating lies, it speaks to a level of deception that’s consistent with traits of personality disorder, among other possible diagnoses. It does not mean that she’s so incapacitated that she doesn’t know the negative consequences of her lies.

This woman reminds me so much of a girl I worked with many, many years ago when I was just out school and was a bank teller. There was another teller there, a pretty girl who was very nice, but who always struck me as being a bit "off."
One day, she came to work with a big scratch across her left cheek and said she had been out jogging and a guy had run up to her and randomly attacked her, then ran off. Everybody felt awful for her, but I thought it was a weird story.
Shortly after that, one of the other tellers at the bank started getting threatening letters mailed to her home saying someone was going to kill her and that people hated her. There were details in the letters about this teller that I believed only co-workers would have known, and I was immediately suspicious about the odd girl.
I went to my supervisor and said I had a feeling this girl was mailing the threatening letters. My supervisor thought I was crazy, and since I didn't have any proof, nothing could be done. The other teller got the police involved, and within a couple of weeks, they had traced the letters back to the sweet, odd girl.
I remember being at work one day and seeing the girl's father come into the bank and quietly escort her out. She never came back to work. Apparently, the teller receiving the threatening letters had agreed not to press charges as long as the girl agreed to get psychiatric help.
I knew this girl was a little cuckoo from the start, and there's so much about this girl who claims she was set on fire that reminds me of this crazy teller girl - her demeanor, her darting eyes, the cadence of her speech.

This is the latest. FBI is offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who has information that will help them with the case. This article is interesting; it says she was "waiting at a stop light in her vehicle at State Street, possibly while on Gorham Street..."

Also, she's saying two of the attackers were wearing masks. Yet she describes them looking like "white frat boys." How could she tell that if they were wearing masks?

I don’t think her being an ENT at 18 is super unusual. People used to go to trade school and graduate with certification. Even now kids can go to high schools with programs specifically designed to give them medical education and training so they can get jobs right after graduating.
This young woman was homeschooled, so that wouldn’t apply in her case but a home school curriculum might allow her to study to be an EMT.

Her story has changed. She initially said they were throwing lighter fluid on her. In another statement, she said they sprayed something out of a spray bottle onto her.
She said two of her attackers were wearing Hawaiian shirts. Reports on the news that day had talked about some anti-BLM protestors showing up to demonstrations in Hawaiian shirts. Her attack also came the same day there that there had been a televised press conference about protestors trying to topple statues.
And the big question she hasn't answered and no one has asked, to my knowledge - why was she driving to her brother's house at 1:00 am on a Wednesday? She didn't say where she was coming from or why at that hour - just that she was "driving to her brother's." Why would she need to go to her brother's at 1:00 am?

Jumping to conclusions depending on which narrative fits your political persuasions. Cancel first and ask questions later seems to be the m.o. of certain elements of hard-left that cultivate and elevate victimhood as something to aspire to. It appeals particularly to the psychologically unbalanced and vulnerable who see it as the ultimate way to bask in attention and praise. Bubba’s case is very different from this young woman’s case.

Part of me hope she is telling the the truth for her sake and another part hopes it is a lie because it is too awful if true.
I have read different versions of details but I also expect that since reporting is so shoddy. I also expect that since if it did happen people don't always remember all the details right away - especially after a harrowing event. Memory kicking in or remembering new details does not mean you were lying before. People too often talk before they think and also too often are very imprecise in their language. For instance, she did say she was going to her brother's a 1 am but I read in 2 local news articles that she said AFTER the incident she then decided to drive home instead and then called her mother from home. Or for instance, throwing fluid in her face is to me another way of saying spraying it on her face. People are careless with their words and in legal situations it can come back to haunt you.
There are a lot of red flags for me in this event, both factual and some - maybe unfairly - psychological assumptions I make about her from personal details. I know that may be completely unfair. Which is why I'll wait until we know the full details. She seems like such a sweet person.
I will add that the biggest red flag for me is the Molotov cocktail firebombing of the city council building just a few blocks from her alleged location (which I realize is imprecise) and just a very short time before (possibly as little as 15 minutes). If she has any involvement with that or her injuries are as a result of that group's activities even without her involvement, then she may never be willing to acknowledge that.

That's an interesting coinciding event, it does gives one pause as to the possibility that she was injured as a result of participating in the firebombing. Participation can be active or as interested bystander enjoying the show, or perhaps lending moral support to the actual criminals. If she was injured in the process then of course there has to be some sort of explanation for her injuries.

If it was 1 AM when it happened and at an intersection with traffic lights, there should be some videos of the event if it did take place. No law enforcement official is calling news conference asking for the public's help in identifying the 4 typical frat boy racists. The local community deserves a follow up because there may possibly be 4 dangerous men on the streets ready to injure or possibly kill the next victim.

This whole incident is starting to take a very Sherri Papini-esque turn.
For a couple of weeks with the Papini case, the media was all over it, the police were investigating, her husband gave a national TV interview. Then no arrests. No witnesses. No new statements from the FBI or local police. The story just died.
I read an interview with one of the police officers in the city where the Papini incident took place. He spoke anonymously and said the police department was no longer investigating. They all knew her story was bullshit, but they couldn't actually PROVE it was bullshit, and they didn't have the budget or resources to extend the investigation, so they just stopped.
Now I would expect Madison, Wisconsin would have a bigger police budget than Redding, California, and the FBI is involved in this girl's case, but the deafening silence tells me that maybe everyone knows her story is bullshit, too, and they're just choosing to let the whole thing die.

An update from the family yesterday:
Notice the girl herself is no longer speaking.
The family says only, "our family is still asking for privacy at this time so that Althea may focus on healing.”
The only other statement they make can be interpreted in a number of ways:
"The family asked for thoughts and prayers from the community for Althea’s healing and the 'collective wounds of our society whose history of ongoing racial inequity has come to the forefront in recent years.'"
"Collective wounds of our society of ongoing racial inequality..." They're not exactly copping to the veracity of the attack. They could really be saying, "Our biracial daughter has been kind of fucked up because she feels unequal and has emotional and psychological wounds."

An interesting take on this story. Also, a week and a half later, no witnesses, no surveillance camera footage, no further statements from Althea herself:
"Somebody, using lighter fluid, firebombed the City County Building in downtown Madison in front of a number of spectators. The 911 call center had to be evacuated. Fortunately, the fire was put out before the 180 inmates in the jail had to be freed or die fiery deaths.
This arson set off a political struggle between the liberal Dane County political leaders, who said enough is enough with these Mostly Peaceful Protests, and the extremely liberal Madison political leaders.
You might think the authorities might want to get in touch with anybody who ended up in the emergency room shortly after the lighter fluid-fueled arson of the City County Building with what are said to be lighter fluid-fueled burns to see if that person could assist them in their inquiries.
But virtually nobody seems to have wondered yet if there is any connection between the lighter fluid arson at 12:40 am on June 24 and the reported attack with lighter fluid on Ms. Bernstein at 1:00 am on June 24 at an intersection a three minute drive away?
If Ms. Bernstein’s story of a roving gang of four white racist fraternity boys spraying lighter fluid on her biracial body is true, then it would seem likely that the white supremacist Haven Monahans staged a false flag attack on the City County Building to make Antifa and BLM look bad.
Alternatively, if Ms. Bernstein’s story isn’t true, perhaps she was a witness to whoever actually did firebomb the jail?"

Also, this from a paramedic:
"As a Firemedic with many experiences with flammable liquid burns, lighter fluid burns would have drip marks. Meaning smaller towards the bottom. Almost like a teardrop. Fluid runs down. Thanks to that crazy thing called gravity. Also, her hair would have gotten singed. Look at how close the marks are to her hair. If it was fire, I am guessing it had something to do with those peaceful protesting happening that night where people were throwing Molotov Cocktails at police and buildings.
There is a reason the media is not promoting this story much anymore.

No word from the FBI either, so definitely a hoax at this point. Perhaps they're trying to find the right charges to file against her? She should not escape punishment for perpetrating hoax and possible race riots. Maybe Meghan Markle could call Althea again to get the real dirt this time.

Shouldn't she lose her job over this hoax?

We will never hear about this story again. It's clear from the lack of FBI/police updates that there is a lack of evidence.
And nothing will happen to her, so that this trend will continue unabated because there are no consequences.

R330, This incident has been totally ignored by the BLM movement. There would not be any rioting if she's fired from her job.

On to the next one! They'll pop up tomorrow most likely, given that this girl's been out of the headlines a few days.

But she'll keep the GoFundMe, so there's that.

The call she made to report the incident has been released

Well, right off the bat, the story she told on TV doesn't match the call. In her TV interview, she said she didn't go to the ER right away and that the ER personnel told her not to call the police right away. In the phone call, she says she was at the ER all night and they told her to call the police.
She sounds like she's high while she's making the call, and it's interesting that she never said it was 4 white frat boys who did it - just "a group of people." And it was a lighter or a match.
And I'm sorry, but if she told this story to the ER personnel, they'd have called the police and had someone interview her at the hospital. So it sounds like she never told the hospital what actually happened.

This will go on her permanent record.
