    the dominant geopolitical system is corrupt and criminal. I refer to it as CRAPITALI$M committed to the status quo of WAR HATE SLAVERY IMPRISONMENT LIES & IMPUNITY with many police officers and military personnel on board. consequently, hate crimes should be expected and not a surprise. and it will continue until WE THE PEOPLE stop it, replace it and punish it.

    I Could Be Wrong.... But I still have a 1% alternative scenario where, The Nigerians ran circles around him. They worked for him and set him up. Money could and would be paid to them for legit reason and record keeping. They had the magazines, they bought the masks, (ther has been no DNA done or confirmed on the material) Jussie was not with them. If anyone lusted for more money it would be the marginalized trainers who sought the limelight. The Chicago PD could decide to go after Jusssie because it a far bigger catch for "Them". You can read the Tea Leaves both ways. And Mark Garagos is going to set this town on fire. Just a thought.
