There’s been some back and forth on whether Anita Sarkeesian actually reported her alleged death threats to the police. Milo Yiannopoulos of Breitbart.com spoke to the San Francisco Police Department who at first said they had no record of Sarkeesian contacting them. Later, they came back and said that they did but it was transferred to the FBI. While that seems fishy, we can’t say anything definitive until Yiannopoulos gets more information with one exception. Here are Sarkeesian’s tweets where she claimed to talk to the police:
There are at least two lies here. First, Sarkeesian implies she is a “woman in tech”, but that is not the case. Second, she says that she talked to “police” and “local police” after what would have been her initial report to the police. If her case was transferred to the FBI like the SFPD now says, then she wasn’t talking to the police or the “local police”. She would be talking to the FBI. (In either case, they would advise her not to talk about her death threats on social media, making it even more suspicious.)
While we don’t have all the facts yet, we know that Sarkeesian lied at least once (twice if you count the “woman in tech” thing) about her alleged death threats.
