How does Smollett explain them calling him N and F bombs and calling him out saying this is MAGA country? Are we really to believe these two idiot brothers did all that too? Come on.
That's one of my biggest hang-ups with this narrative. I've met Nigerians while I was in college, you will never mistake their accent with Midwestern American English.

I could buy mistaking single word epithets in the middle of a fight, but not something so specific as, "This is MAGA country."

That, plus the fact that Smollett only had a puffy cheek after he valiantly (according to him) fought them off, it did you see these dudes? They’re ripped and could’ve snapped Jussie like a toothpick. The whole thing just stinks.

Or simply how Smollett was so sure they were white and acted like he didn't know them. If they knew where he was because of the steroids, and Smollett knew them then it makes 0 sense that he wouldn't identify them and make up the whole white dudes screaming MAGA country story.

Sorry but 2 big black dudes who I worked out with and bought steroids from would be pretty easy for me to identify if they decided to give me a light beating.

And there is still the issue that Smollett was adamant about catching the culprit until it turned out to be the brothers and then he refused to press charges.

Yes, Smollett's lawyer's take is that the two brothers legitimately attacked him. They knew where he'd be due to Smollett coordinating with the younger brother to acquire illegal steroids for a music video he was preparing to shoot. The older brother was also known to hate homosexuals as per Empire cast and crew.

I want to reiterate that I don't believe this is what happened, just that I think it's a plausible explanation. This is still a he-said he-said, and I still think Smollett is a piece of shit at best even if he is innocent for his initial claims when he didn't know shit about who attacked him.

At the end of the day I don't have a dog in this fight other than not wanting to see a shithole like Chicago brazenly acting like the mafia after botching a criminal investigation.
The mans job is to come up with plausible explanations to defend his client. That is his job. And he is good at it.

Though they should get their story straight. Are the two brothers gay or are they homofobes?
The lawfirm is being sued for calling the brothers gay. and now they call them homofobes instead?

I assume the FBI is just too busy to deal with this low level shit and it's sitting in a box somewhere waiting to be investigated. That assumption is based on nothing.
I mean What is Mark Gerago's opinion about the letter, since he is spinning so much bullshit about the brothers.

Niiice! At least someone is looking into her conduct here. Maybe nothing will come of it, but it's still satisfying.

Probably just publicly states that the letter was a legitimate threat sent to the studio by some outside party. I don't see him wanting to connect that letter to the case at all.

your mind
Kim Foxx, Chicago's top prosecutor, has just been subpoenaed to appear at a court hearing regarding her handling of the Jussie Smollett "attack."


Probably just a dog and pony show. Like I stated earlier in the thread, they will not drag a high profile black woman through the mud in the year 2019. No one will want the public blowback that entails.

I hope I’m wrong though. I do love seeing justice applied correctly.

Sadly, I think you’re right. Whether discriminating against someone on skin color or treating them as a protected class, it’s still all racism to me.

So, is Jussie getting paid for not working on the show? ”

Juicy is living the SJW socialist utopia. Looks like he won in the end.
