Jussie Smollett Case: Grand Jury Returns 16 Counts Against ‘Empire’ Actor
March 8, 2019 at 3:50 pm

CHICAGO (CBS) — Jussie Smollett is now facing deeper legal troubles after a grand jury returned 16 federal counts against the actor for falsely reporting a hate crime attack against him in January.

The grand jury returned the disorderly conduct indictment on Thursday.

“Jussie Smollett knew that at the time … there was no reasonable ground for believing that such offenses had been committed,” according to the indictment.

He should have the book thrown at him.  He tried to succeed where Charles Manson failed:  Trying to incite a race war.

He'll plead it down to a misdemeanor charge or two, and get off with a fine and community service.

Or perhaps no more than 3-4 months in jail, maximum.

In his 'Ecstasy' world, he lost focus on 'Reality'.

Same thing, I'd suspect, as the person riding naked on a bicycle in busy Manhattan.

He's going to try and cop a reduced plea for his acute drug dependency.

I'll bet the first cop Smollett talked to had a hard time suppressing laughter.

That's a real nice theory, but let's face facts. Thee have been hundreds of these fake crime hoaxes and a good number have been caught. There are websites devoted to this, but it doesn't deter them. It is like Socialism. They have the idea that they are the ones "that will do it right" and everyone will love them and support them for it.

He won't get 46 months.

If he were found guilty and the Judge orders the sentences to be served consecutively.  That won't happen to Smollett.

They have their narrative.
Facts do not count, only the narrative.
The means justify the ends.
The ends being proving their narrative.

He should have the book thrown at him.  He tried to succeed where Charles Manson failed:  Trying to incite a race war.

He did succeed, in throwing gasoline, on the cultural divide fire.

The mere mention of this hoax, evokes outbursts claiming racism and/or homophobia.

I was told by a leftist fmily member, that the mere mention of it made me "sound like a racist."

Many on the left today, have minds like the college student--"social justice warriors."

Sure because we all know that pointing out the truth about anyone on the left automatically makes you a racist.

He deserves years of jail time, but not 46. Murderers don't do that much time.

Murderers that are executed sure do.
