Jizzie Smallbits should indeed go to prison for perpetrating a fake hate crime, but unfortunately since he is of a "protected class" and has friends in high places (or should I say high friends in places) they will undoubtedly make sure that he gets at most a slap on the wrist.
Hopefully more Federal charges will be coming if in fact he was the one who sent himself the letters with the aspirin powder.
sadly dont hold your breath on federal charges.
how many people (especially democratic politicians) that (to but it bluntly) are guilty beyond any reason to the contrary.
with KNOWN PROOF that if it were not even 10 percent of it you or I would be in the grey bar hotel before our next breath.
Hell one blunt example of hypocrisy on the feds is when some old lady said to then president clinton "you lied those boys died" the Secret service were giving her a proctal exam within less than 12 hours.
But when madonna made a DIRECT THREAT to blow up the white house how long did it take before the feds talked to her?
did anything come of that?...NOPE.
sadly this will be a local wrist slap, no fed charges and he will not be vilified (with facts) like a "cough cough" minor catholic student who was PROVEN INNOCENT.

A local (Chicago) reporter outside the courthouse says Chicago PD has been presenting evidence to the Grand Jury for 3 hours, and Jussie Smollett must appear before the GJ on Thursday.
Maybe that's when he will "flip" on: www.abovetopsecret.com... ???

I think think he should be charged with a federal hate crime charge.
Yup. He should also be banned from all social media. Fair is fair. All sponsors should be boycotted from fox. Fair is fair.
Smollett's lawyers fired back, releasing a statement saying: "Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked.

Now that we have the full facts and not simply speculation then he needs the full weight of the law throwing at him. No pampered celebrity sentence.
I defended him before as i do not like trial by media (which is usually wrong anyway). However, now the facts are out it is a case of wasting Police time, false allegations and has potentially damaged race relations. Just on that last point, how is the news he is being charged been treated in the US by the likes of Al Sharpton? (we don't get that aspect of reporting over here in Blighty). Is anyone still trying to defend him or is he being roundly condemned by all and sundry?
