The story always sounded odd. And the MAGA thing was not alleged until after the media alleged it, then this character said that was part of it too.


...

But conflicting versions of the incident from Smollett himself, and details reported by the media being outright contradicted by Chicago Police have raised questions about what actually happened.

Debra Heine noted on the PJ Media last night that police had found surveillance video of Smollett, but had not been able to find video of the alleged assailants.

...

The Chicago Police issued subsequent statements denying TMZ's claim that Smollett reported the suspects yelling "this is MAGA country." However, Chicago Police later said that Smollett did reveal the detail in a second interview -- taken after the TMZ story had spread ...

...


The Daily Beast later reported that a Chicago Police spokesperson refuted TMZ's claim of the defendants being male and white. The spokesperson stated the gender and race of the alleged assailants were unknown to Smollett because they were wearing ski masks and gloves.

...

Then a police spokesman said that when officers first arrived on the scene, nearly 45 minutes after the alleged attack, Smollett was still wearing the rope around his neck ...

I am still waiting for more evidence but it sure does seem that the story doesn't pass the smell test.


There are numerous threads on this topic was a new one needed?

Maybe he's trying to get a job on CNN...

Hey, he's a victim!

Of what, exactly, is still to be determined.

A Hate Crime, A Fake Crime, or his own stupidity are all still possibilities...

Didn't CNN just hire the alleged criminal from Florida who almost became governor?

CNN has got some real characters working there...

Refusing to turn over cell phone, cell phone records.


Smollett has told police he was confronted by two men who allegedly hurled racist and homophobic slurs just before they beat him up. They are investigating the case as a possible hate crime.

The manager has told police he heard the attackers say, "This is MAGA country," during the assault, officials said.

When police asked Smollett for his cellphone and records to confirm the call, he refused to share them, according to Guglielmi.

I asked this in the other thread, perhaps someone here can answer:


1. Just wearing a sweat shirt in -0 degree temps, 6-8 blocks at 2am, likely or not likely?

2. Two men who both know the minor actor and hate him know where he is at 2am, likely or not likely?

3. Same two men happen to be carrying bleach and a noose at 2am, likely or not likely?

4. On phone with manager, refuses to hand over phone to verify, suspicious or no?

5. Walks past security immediately after attack and says nothing, likely or not likely?

6. Police called 45 mins later, Jussi is still wearing the noose, likely or not likely?

7. Seen in Subway at 11am, was returning from subway at 2am, likely or not likely?


You have to admit there is a whole list of unlikely scenarios in his story.

Rev. Hellhound,

How's this scenario:

How many MAGA guys watch, care about, or even know who is on Empire? Whereas, how many black people watch it, care that there is a black gay person, and know who his is.

If there was an attack, more than likely it is two black guys. I mean who hates gay black people more than black people?
