March 28, 2012 – I have just discovered that the photographs of the 13 year old boy (Allen Goin, aka Allen Coon) who was allegedly set on fire by two black teens are a hoax! I have removed the photos from my blog and in the process of investigating further if the whole story may be a sick hoax. I will leave the stories there for now (without the photograph) until I can determine any new information about this turn of events.
Others are also investigating this story. From the beginning, and as I mentioned in one of my blogs about the incident, things didn’t make sense. Now I know for a FACT that the photograph showing a burned Allen Goin is not him. It is a photograph from 2008 and 2009 of an Afghan burn victim. See Here PHOTOGRAPH.
THE ROYCROFT REPORT will not intentionally report false information and be a party to any reports that are proven to be false. The story itself has been verified, although no new information is available about any false information being reported to police investigators in Kansas City regarding the Allen Goin case.
Right now I can only verify that the photograph is in fact not Allen Goin. -JRoycroft
March 28, 2012 - After all the drama of Trayvon Martin, racism, Obama Care and the rest of the depressing news being shoved in our faces, (guilty as charged) I thought it was time to lighten things up a bit and take a break. I can’t change our messed up society and quite frankly it’s all getting very old, very quick.
In the past week I have heard every spin on the Trayvon Martin case and also the Allen Goin case that you could imagine. The media has been exaggerating the two stories and reporting out right lies and un-confirmed rumors.
They are both very disturbing cases. Martin, being killed by a wannabe cop who will be prosecuted once the investigation is over, and Goin, a 13 year old boy who was allegedly set on fire by two thugs that remain at large. Allen Goin was the lucky survivor.
Unless something major develops with those stories, I’ve decide to step aside and take a break. I don’t want be a part in the media circus.
Now it’s time to turn the dial.
Hope this brings a little cheer.
