After allegedly making up a story about a bias attack, three UAlbany students have been charged with assaulting a fellow bus passenger.

According to the Times Union, three black women who claimed they were victims of an attack by a group of white men Jan. 30 were actually the aggressors in an assault on a bus passenger.

Video evidence refutes their story, the Times Union reported, and it is now alleged they were the perpetrators. The men they alleged were assaulting them were actually trying to break up the fight.

This has turned into a big national story, and even Hillary Clinton tweeted about it recently. Any attack like this, if it were real, is terrible, and false accusations like this are just as wrong.
