In just simple, "101" deception detection, consider that an assault is a very personal, intrusive action of which truthful language will reflect. Passive voice tells us the subject is concealing something.
We also note that police are often good at labeling something "story telling" without always being able to explain why.
It is the Narrative Voice that we note of.
Narrative Voice is story telling, including the logical placement of emotions. In actual attacks, the emotions come after the assault not during.
We may also consider that there are many indicators of deception that can be noted. How many can you find?
Note such things as "story" and "I am sorry" in her language.
Note the gratuitous use of politically correct language as she seeks support from the powerful victim status mentality: "my fellow" and lists "Asian Americans, LGBT community, People of Color..."
Her use of passivity is fascinating about being handcuffed with the usual "police jargon."
Being handcuffed is a traumatic event as it leaves one utterly vulnerable, restricting the natural inclination of self defense (this is even more acute if handcuffed behind the back).
Police departments have denied any involvement with her.
"I was stop in my tracked by a white male, who yelled at me to 'Go back to Asia.' I pretended to not hear any thing and continue on walking since I didn't want to create conflict. Shortly after that moment, I was stopped by that same man who told me 'Don't you know it's disrespectful to walk away from someone when they are talking to you?"
Note the indicators of deception above, including the confused communicative language.
Advanced analysis will search for both content and projection, as well as a psychological profile of Kathy Marah Tu.
In her post, Tu wrote that the man grabbed her wrist and threatened to fight her, so she punched him in the throat. Note the "super hero" status she obtains for herself.
"His friends who were watching the entire situation go down saw that I was going to the win fight and came over to his rescue and accused me of assaulting him and called the police," she wrote.
She said police handcuffed her, checked her criminal history and let her go with a warning.
In its tweet Thursday, UMPD said they did not respond to the incident and asked Tu to contact police. "UMPD was not involved but want to talk to the female who posted this on social media," the 2:45 p.m. tweet said.
Tu's Facebook post had more than 17,000 shares and 30,000 reactions as of Thursday evening.
