    Seems agenda driven to me. Who walks around at 2 am in the fridgid cold with a gallon of bleach, a noose looking for a black man?

    Why walk all the way home with a noose around your neck, I would think that the symbol of hate it represents would cause me to jerk it off.

    Who wears baseball caps over ski mask

    Why does the news keep pushing the agenda that Trump is a white supremacists leader and all his followers chant MAGA

    The two suspects in video, I Don't see any bleach bottle, I don't see a noose.

    Actor is pist because of 7 hour delayed flight from NYC, because it was so cold. Was he in a bad mood? Did he sit near someone that was white and a Trump fan on plane

    Why are police spending night and day on this, if like the claims of past stories like this will be proven false and swept under the rug?

    I may be very wrong, but this story stinks to me.

    Right away when I heard about it the story seemed questionable to me as well. I'm not going to pass judgement until there's more information, though.

    I don't know, but it doesn't add up IMO

    No, it doesn't add up. They've been looking at this for two weeks with camera footage everywhere and nothing to be found but two guys walking down the sidewalk. I'm holding off as well partly because if I say what I really think, I'll be kicked off this site so fast and hard I'll have an M6G boot print on my *ss for the next 6 months.

    Check the latest coming out of Chicago local news.
    Chicago PD knew who the "persons of interest" were over a week ago. They are both men of color. One of them is an actor that has previously worked with Smollett. They wre apprehended at the airport - heading to Nigeria. Items, including bleach, were seized at their home. When the PD asked for Smollett's phone records, he downloaded his call records from his phone into a spreadsheet, deleted some numbers and handed the records over. He didn't realize Chicago PD had already gotten a subpoena for his records to his service provider. All they did was investigate the numbers he'd deleted from the records he turned over.

    Ooops.

    This clown should be prosecuted and fined an amount... let's say twice the cost of the wasted police man-hours... and do 6 months in jail for a hate crime.

    I don’t think it smells quite that good.

    I wish faking a “hate (thought) crime” was a crime, too, but it’s probably not.

    This guy needs to do some time.

    Just heard a public statement that the TV show/network he’s on will not be dismissing him! F$&@ Hollywood. That’s a f$&@ing joke! Look at the people on the other side of the agenda...axed! WTF. Typical.

    So, now the grand jury has charged him, he’ll be arrested and probably arraigned tomorrow, he’ll go to trial, he’ll get some ridiculous sentence like 30 days, and he’ll come out the other side better off than he was before he started this crap. And he’ll be able to lecture us endlessly that while his specific escapade may not have actually occurred, it was, nevertheless, “the lie that tells the truth“.

    And may God have mercy on America. We do not deserve it.

    Yeah, just heard this morning he was charged with his fabricated BS. I was watching America This Morning (ABC) and they BARELY mentioned it, then moved onto the next story. Early on when this first came out before they had more evidence (or lack thereof), they had whole segments on it spewing "hate crime" coming out of their yaps. Strange, . . . .not hearing that anymore. Get ready for the "race card" to come into play next.

    My local news just stated this morning that he turned himself in. Chicago police will make a statement this morning at 9 am. He's got a hell of a lot of leftists against his actions right now including African Americans. We'll see how this rolls.

    His attorney says Smollett "enjoys the presumption of innocence"

    Why does that remind me of:

    Evidently, they've also got him on sending the threatening letter to the "Empire" producers which, supposedly, started this thing.

    Getting deeper for poor lil Jussie.
