    And this guy is not getting it that one of the legitimate problem with hate crime is that there are many people like smollett who had succeeded in sending investigators on shadow chase, and undue fear to the society. Many people finally acknowledged this fact because now it involved a celebrity. Faking hate crime preserves hate crime just like hate crime itself. Even hating Donald Trump feeds hate crime.

    It’s great they putting this out there so much because if it was any other race on the planet that does something like that, whites, Mexicans, especially Muslims, there’s protests, tv specials, government personalities coming out of the woodwork to push their agenda. This is exactly how it should be done.

    I will believe Jesse until he is prosecuted , remember the six young men that was founded guilty for rape and murder in NEW YORK and none of them was guilty but spent years in prison for nothing so believe I do not trust the police department at all so I will wait and see if he is really guilty

    Yes, hate crimes have always existed in the nation. However, numbers of these crimes have increased since Trump was elected president. He is not to blame, is is merely the spirit animal that awakened the true colors of many US citizens, he would be like the catalyst of this big disaster wich was somehow dormant. He is an excepcional businessman, he has done wonderful things for the economy, true, but nobody is perfect and yet he has his flaws. Indirectly or willingly it has given certain groups a sense of entitlement and superiority that is cause more and more hate crimes.

    This is battle has been going on for quiet some time now. Fortunately more and more people are realizing that we are all one. The human race on this beautiful planet called earth is slowly waking up to a new counciousness,the forces of dark and light are becoming more and more obvious,and unfortunately is going to get uglier,but this is a natural process and we have to go through it. IT'S TIME.

    The fact that Jussie thought this ruse would work is because he knows the hate filled climate is ripe for anyone to beleive it..

    He has friends in high places in politics they were going to use this as a political tool then he got busted. Hate crimes do happen everyday this is true. But Democrats don't really care if it doesn't help their agenda
