Jussie Smollett Indicted by Grand Jury on 16 Felony Counts

Jussie Smollett Indicted by Grand Jury on 16 Felony Counts

Faces probation to four years in jail for each count.

A grand jury in Cook Country has indicted Empire star Jussie Smollett on 16 felony counts for filing a false police report.

Smollett had only received one felony charge for this last month. He claimed two white men in MAGA hats attacked him, yelling racist slurs.

From ABC 7 Chicago:

The grand jury returned two separate sets of charges. The first set are related to what Smollett told officers about the alleged attack, including that the attackers called him racial and homophobic slurs, struck him with his their hands, put a noose around his neck, and poured some sort of chemical substance on him.

The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day.

Smollett faces probation to four years in prison. However, if he strikes a plea deal, he could possibly miss out on jail time.

Smollett’s case began to unwind the minute the news came out. I mean, Chicago is nowhere near being a MAGA country. I beg my parents not to wear their MAGA hats around town.

From CBS Chicago:

Smollett, who is black and openly gay, had told police he was attacked as he was walking home around 2 a.m. on Jan. 29. He claimed two masked men – one of them also wearing a red hat – shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on them.

Police said, in reality, Smollett had paid those two men, Ola and Abel Osundairo, $3,500 by check to stage the attack. CBS 2’s Charlie De Mar has reported Smollett also directed the brothers to buy the noose at a hardware store and the hat and masks at a store in Uptown. Johnson said police have the check.

Police said the two brothers wore gloves during the staged attack, and did punch Smollett, but the scratches and bruises on Smollett’s face most likely were self-inflicted.

Police at the time said the attack was a publicity stunt because the actor was upset about his pay on the show.

It’s possible he’s lying about being Black. Perhaps in his heart of hearts he self-identified as White, but he’s too afraid to come out of the closet yet.

“self-identifies” (stupid autocorrect)

At least he is no longer upset about his pay on the show, it now being non-existent. I wonder if he will file for unemployment under the New Green Deal? Similarly, I wonder if his disability policy has a clause “for being a total dipshit.”

So, what do we call a black staging a fake “hate crime”? It happens often enough, there should be a word for it. Is it a “Smollet,” a “Tawana,” or what?

A stint in a country club rehab facility, a bought and paid for preacher, throw in a five pound Bible. Presto, change-o, instant credibility on MAGA. Speaking fees skyrocket, life is good. A catchy handle, like Black lives matter or Hands up, don’t shoot and you have the leader of a movement.

    A classic example of Black Liars Matter (BLM). What we have is a growing black con artists problem.

”’what do we call a black staging a fake “hate crime””’

Refer to the godfather of fake hate crimes:

It is a ‘Tawana Sharpton’.
