Fake Hate: "Cracker" Steven Sampson

EMT lied about being slashed by thugs on Christmas: police
By using the word "Cracker", Steven Sampson attempted to cause the arrest of an innocent black male (or males). 

Can we tell his motive?

EMT lied about being slashed by thugs on Christmas: policeIn a short article with few quotes, it is difficult, but I have included the photo of his injury which is real.  This does, in Behavioral Analysis, give us insight into motive. 

It is not likely a racial motive, though he used a racist tactic. 

An FDNY emergency medical technician who claimed to have been attacked by a gang of thugs and robbed on Christmas actually concocted the whole elaborate story, cops said Wednesday.
Steven Sampson, 41, was charged with making a false statement and falsely reporting an incident for claiming that he was held up by four delinquents in the Bronx, according to police.
The tattooed father of two allegedly fabricated a harrowing account of being assaulted while off duty, on his way to a holiday party.
Sampson claimed to have stopped his car on Bolton and Randall avenues just after midnight when he heard someone shout, “Hey, cracker!”
The 9/11 veteran went on to detail a heroic battle, stating that he put one hoodlum in an arm bar and punched another as the other two grabbed Christmas presents out of his car.
The missing gifts allegedly total almost $3,000, including liquor, toys, electronics and other items intended for his family.

Sampson ultimately drove himself to Jacobi Medical Center, where he received seven stitches for a puncture to his right arm.
But cops say they canvassed the area during the course of their investigation and could not confirm Sampson’s story.
The EMT was arrested after officials say his story fell apart.
“He gave so many different accounts of what happened, he’s no longer credible,” police sources said.
However, “he was definitely stabbed,” according to sources, but it is unclear how he got that injury.


One unnamed officer told The New York Post that “he was definitely stabbed,” but they’re not clear on how that happened.
His wife Michell says that’s ridiculous.
“There’s no false report,” she told the Daily News. “My husband was stabbed and he was robbed. He was not charged with anything.”


Was this a drug deal gone bad?

Steven Sampson, 41, got stabbed in the shoulder. So far, that’s the only credible detail about his story, the New York Police Department says. The fire department EMT told authorities that a group of four men attacked him, and stole $2,500 worth of gifts from his car. It was quite the story. He said he put one guy in an armbar, and punched another, but the others used to the chaos to make off with his family’s Christmas presents.

“’Hey, cracker, we’re going to take your s—t.’ Basically, that’s what they said,” he told CBS New York.

But the NYPD is disputing this story. The New York Daily News reports that Sampson was charged on Wednesday with making a false written statement and filing a false report. Police told the outlet that Sampson kept changing his story, and eventually recanted it under questioning.

We’re working to reach him for comment.

Going to a party well past midnight was odd to me. Stopping on the road to arrange gifts at that time was more odd. He was immediately believed and said he was surrounded by LE while in hospital telling of his heroic altercation. IMO, being overly tattoed is indication of a persons troubled psychology. Its unusual. Attention seeking for sure and can be a sign of rebellion and an uncomfortableness with one self. I did not doubt he was attacked and robbed. But now that his story has been revealed as false makes me wonder sexual or drug solicitation.

Peter Hyatt said...

Anonymous 10:26, your conclusion that it may be drugs or sex is like a statistical safe space. (sorry, I could not resist).

These are the two main reasons why we get non-agenda false claims; to cover something else.

The reason I go to drugs, over sex, is because of the amount of Christmas money/gifts gone, and the stab wound looks more like a larger weapon than a prostitute might carry.

But your two choices really are the two that we should go to in Behavioral Analysis where the language does not show a narrative agenda (racism, attention seeking).

Good post,

Peter

And was the "victim" wearing that prophetic tee shirt during his skirmish?

Shannon Miller said...

I thought the wife's statement was interesting. "He was stabbed and he was robbed". That sounds like two completely separate incidents.
"He wasn't charged with anything".
That doesn't mean he didn't do anything wrong, just that he wasn't charged. She is trying to persuade us with unnecessary information.

The real question is, has the Go-Fund-Me been set up to replace the gifts yet?

That is a lot of gifts to come to that high value to be carrying around.

It got me to wondering if he wasn't robbed but had sold the 'gifts' in return for a little behind the counter medication?

Are we certain the gifts to the value claimed actually existed?

Are we even certain gifts of any kind existed?

He would not be the first person to fake a crime to cover up non existent gifts due to the money being spent elsewhere such as drugs, gambling,ladies of a certain kind, maybe a secret girlfriend?

Fake a robbery, stab himself in the arm, being an EMT means he knows where to hit safely without hitting any vital arteries etc in his arm.
File a false police report.
Play the all american hero fighting off the thugs.
Start a gofundme to replace all the expensive gifts.
15 mins of fame and hey presto, freebie christmas.

He is very muscular which leads me to wonder if he works out.
Does he have ideas about joining the police or armed forces?
Is he ex police or forces?

I wonder about drug use?
Unaccounted meds maybe?
What is the family situation at home?
Fights and rows?
has he showed any hint of racism at work?
What about elsewhere?

This was not likely a spur of the moment thing.
If this was not a genuine assault, it smacks of preplanning.
Him alone or with others?

tania cadogan said...

As an aside, that is a strange place to be stabbed.

Right in the meaty upper arm.

Anyone carrying a knife is going to go for the biggest target if they are willing to use it.
This means the torso.
Lots of vital organs there, easy damage to be done.
Failing that aim for the groin (femoral artery there plus a mans important little parts who he will protect regardless)
Why not the throat or face if wanting to disable someone or to scar them for life in an obvious place as a warning to others.

The arm there i would say if probably one of the safer places plus the scar would be in the tattoo and not stand out as much.

Expected vs. unexpected - Who would actually stop at an intersection in the Bronx to sort gifts, especially after midnight? Wouldn't it be wiser to wait until you got to your destination or at least pull over in a store parking lot?
'Cracker' isn't a strong slur word. A group of thugs who are going to rob you would be using stronger words to get your attention, especially the F-word.

"I caught him in an arm bar and he was like, ‘Please, sir, please, sir, let me go!’ but I knew I had him,” said Sampson, who could play Vin Diesel’s double. “I smashed him in the elbow and felt his humerus crack.” He delivered a round house punch on the next guy who dropped to the pavement. “I caught [him] in the jaw,” said Sampson, who’s a black belt in judo martial arts.
Sampson turns into an action film star when a thug reaches for his phone. Reach is soft language—a thug would grab it, threaten him, brandish a weapon, use force.

Meanwhile, he saw the other two goons run off with his $2,600 in gifts.
4 were thugs and then 2 of them became goons, why the change in language?
He hurried to his Dodge Charger, locked the doors and sped off.
Why not say car? This sounds like he’s telling a story.

He noticed blood gushing from his arm and that he’d been stabbed.
There was no mention of the thugs or goons having weapons. He doesn’t say it so we can’t say it for him. Why stabbed and not cut or scratched.

“I was hemorrhaging in the hospital. My shirt was a soaked rag,”
Thought out words, considering he is an EMT. He wasn’t freaking out, he didn’t call police – no mention whether or not the thug took his phone, how did he drive himself to the hospital in such bad shape? The Borough chief referred to him as Superman- he wanted to be a hero; sounds narcissist to me.

This guy told a tall story. He referenced the thieves (not thugs or goons) by giving them a message to “get a job,” and “Karma Is a bitch.” It would be interesting to know if his job was in jeopardy before the incident and if there were marital problem- since he didn't want to call his wife.

That would be the easiest place/ wound position to stab yourself. He either never had the gifts or intended to sell them elsewhere.

Nic said...

I'm thinking drugs and either a GoFundMe or insurance claim to get what was "used" in the first place.

"$3k" is a lot to spend on Christmas, let alone to have in the vehicle at one time. That would be literally *all* of Christmas down to Wonder Bread for the turkey stuffing, and then some!

"It's the same as every day," Dunn said. "I feel sadness over not having her home yet. I feel anger over not having an arrest yet. I feel anger over somebody not having any remorse to confess. It's always in the back of my mind," she continued. "I just try to keep very busy."

"I still want to believe every time they tell me there's going to be an arrest soon," she said. "I keep that faith."

"It's tough. I'm always with a lot of my family, my close family, on Christmas," she said. "But it's still tough that I don't have my daughter."

"That really warms my heart, I have KTAB contacting me every year," she said. "That we have over 4,000 followers on Hope for Hailey Facebook page that sends us messages all the time of prayers and we're going to keep sharing Hailey's story. It's very heartwarming."

Nothing about Hailey the person. It's the same as "every day" -- Billy Jean, Billy Jean, Billy Jean, Facebook and "story".

He tells wifey he's got the gifts all covered and is keeping them at work so she and the kids are surprised. But he bought dope instead and now its showtime so he stabs himself and concocts the story. Its easy for junkies to lie but hard to keep the lies straight under pressure so he is exposed. That's how I see it and its a damn shame, this opiate scourge that proliferated under Bush, Clinton , Bush and Obama...

It's right arm correct? That would maybe be a wound made by someone in the passenger seat

I was just thinking "Sounds like a lie for the wife", a big fat drawn out lie, with a bonus hero looking, narcissistic steroid filled sob story to go with it.

Update:

FDNY EMT suspended after making up story about four men who robbed, stabbed him on Christmas in the Bronx

The FDNY EMT who made up a story about getting robbed and stabbed on Christmas by a group of men who called him “cracker” has been suspended from his job and faces further investigation.

Steven Sampson, 41, a 17-year veteran EMT, told police and reporters he battled four men who stole nearly $3,000 in Christmas gifts from him at the corner of Bolton and Randall Aves. in Clason Pt. early Christmas morning.

On Wednesday, police charged him with making a false written statement and filing a false report. He received a desk appearance ticket, and faces further scrutiny from the Bronx District Attorney’s Public Integrity Bureau, officials said.

A source told News 12 that Sampson may have been stabbed at a Christmas party and created a cover story because he was there with a woman other than his wife.

Police said Sampson, who was stabbed in the shoulder, gave several conflicting accounts of what happened, then recanted the tale when confronted with the inconsistencies.

Attempts to reach Sampson at his Bronx home were unsuccessful Thursday.

OT - Possible Hate Crime on Austin's Famous 6th Street
“I remember somebody behind me trying to talk to me and then all the sudden my purse was yanked,” Foster remembers.
“It’s scary to think it was, I personally have never dealt with that to that degree, I want to say it wasn’t, but there could be a strong possibility that it could’ve been,” Foster said. “They knew the two of us were alone and they could tell that we weren’t going to be too much to handle, I’d had a few cocktails and I know [my friend] had too.”

This will be interesting to see how it plays out.

On Tuesday, two drag performers were attacked after leaving the popular downtown Austin nightclub, Barbarella. The performers were robbed and beaten so badly, one was left with missing teeth and the other has a broken leg.

Robbie “Serotonin” Foster says he and a fellow performer were walking near the area by the Austin Resource Center for the Homeless and Salvation Army Wednesday morning after the “TuesGayz” themed night at the bar.

“I remember somebody behind me trying to talk to me and then all the sudden my purse was yanked,” Foster remembers.

Police say a car pulled up, one person got out and assaulted the two performers. As the car sped away, it hit Foster’s friend, breaking his leg. The suspects are still on the run.

“I was sitting there on my butt just pouring blood from my mouth and I think maybe my body just triggered into blackout mode where I didn’t feel any pain or anything,” Foster says. “The next thing I remember was being in the ambulance and then at the hospital.”

Foster says he can’t remember how many attackers there were, only a vague description.

“I remember one of them being a little bit taller than me and lighter skinned and curly, curly hair, but that’s about all I remember,” Foster said.

Police have not confirmed anything, but Foster says he can’t help but wonder if their attack was a hate crime.

“It’s scary to think it was, I personally have never dealt with that to that degree, I want to say it wasn’t, but there could be a strong possibility that it could’ve been,” Foster said. “They knew the two of us were alone and they could tell that we weren’t going to be too much to handle, I’d had a few cocktails and I know [my friend] had too.”

Despite the violence, Foster says he won’t be scared away from his own city. “I’m not gonna be bullied or victimized or nobody’s gonna stop me from doing what I want to do I’ll just be a lot more cautious,” he said. “Be safe, you know, take care of each other, travel in packs and know your surroundings.”

Friends of the victims have set up a fundraising page to help with medical expenses from the attack. A local Austin bar is also hosting a benefit drag show, where part of the proceeds will also go to help the victims.

Police have made no arrests.

This just popped up on my Facebook feed:

We were just VICTIMIZED by a HATE CRIME
Last night my home was victimized by HATE. Instead of waking up to see our lighted Hanukkah menorah display on our front lawn, there was a swastika. My husband built the menorah to celebrate the Hanukkah holiday after our kids (3 boys 9, 7,5) asked for their own holiday lights for the season. We live in a great neighborhood with kind and welcoming neighbors. We never would have imagined that someone would spread so much hate here. However, this morning we were greeted with this horrible act of aggression. Our menorah was destroyed and altered to resemble a swastika. This clear act of hate and racism is disturbing and sad. I broke down in tears waiting for the police to come and hoping that my kids would not be awake to see it. The officer helped me take it down, before they woke-up. I’m still not sure how I will explain this to them. I’m not sure I quite understand it myself, nor have I ever understood racism or prejudice in any form. How can people can be filled with so much hate and violence? To think that someone would make such an effort to hurt and vandalize a family, is downright sickening. If you or anyone you know has any information that may help the police, please share and contact Chandler Police in response to 16-148624.
****************************

My natural inclination is to be immediately skeptical, but I know that my SA skills are in no way good enough that I can say with confidence that this is another incident of fake hate.

The major red flag to me is her usage of the words "hate," "aggression," "racism," "victimised," "violence," and "prejudice," but she never once uses the words "fear" or "afraid."

Islam a religion of peace? Don't let me laugh.......Islam is made with violence, Islam is demanded to those who lived there at the time and was taken over by 4 men after the original person, who claimed to get the prophets from "god" (Allah) was banned from the country and lived elsewhere for 10 years before he died....Then these men came and took over and demanded the people in the country to obey the rules.........Nothing peacefully about this religion.....But guess you are Muslim yourself and have to defend your believes if not your world will fall apart and it would leave you to have to think for yourself instead of being brainwashed from birth with believes that were demanded with violence by those who claimed to talk the word of God (Allah), since then there has been nothing peacefull about this religion at all, just look at the world as it is.......

The article talked about Afghan teenagers......There was nothing said about Islam....Still the reaction of Clinton news network claimed it was a rape in name of religion while religion wasn't mentioned at all, only their origin was mentioned.....

About Steven Sampson I would think his use of steroids has led to this false statement. Also wonder if these presents ever were in his car. Did something happend in his life he had to "prove", his physical strength?

Hey Jude said...

Rjb - I saw that and thought fake hate - (especially with additional info that the husband works in construction and they had modelled the menorah themselves) - would take a bit of a passingly casual genius to know that the bits could be taken apart and remodelled into a swastika - and that in the middle of the night on a front lawn, apparently. More though, the mother's keenness *not* to have to tell her kids about such things, whilst making it very public and also arranging a street party round it - she uses passive language, too.

Look at the language used by the media reporting a white male fake hate claim versus a Muslim teen girl's fake hate claim. With the Muslim teen's fake subway attack, the media just reports the facts; that she made up the story and gave the reason. However, in the article above, They use phrases like "actually concocted the whole elaborate story", "tattooed father of two allegedly fabricated a harrowing account", and "heroic battle" (I'm guessing this is sarcasm).
