    Jussie Smollett: Appropriate punishment

    Found guilty of 5 out of 6 charges
    his threat to public safety is ignored.

    The latest at the moment

    https://news.yahoo.com/jussie-smollett-awaits-verdict-jurors-050128868.html
    Smollett attorney says ex-'Empire' actor
    will appeal verdict

    CHICAGO (AP) — Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was convicted Thursday on charges he staged an anti-gay, racist attack on himself nearly three years ago and then lied to Chicago police about it.

    In the courtroom as the verdict was read, Smollett stood and faced the jury, showing no visible reaction. He and his family later left the courthouse without comment.

    The jury found the 39-year-old guilty on five counts of disorderly conduct — for each separate time he was charged with lying to police in the days immediately after the alleged attack. He was acquitted on a sixth count, of lying to a detective in mid-February, weeks after Smollett said he was attacked.
    . .


    He could have ignited riots!
    And no one notices nor considers the public's safety.
    Any punishment needs to consider the threat to public safety!
    Not just that he lied to police, etc.

    It's not smart to not be truthful when you have a history of postings....

    Two appropriate jury verdicts within 2 months, a good stand for jury power.

    Smollett didn't just make a false police report -- much bigger -- he tried to stain our country, he tried to stain an ex-president, he tried to stain the white race. Sure he tied up police resources but he committed the mother of all hate crimes. Give him 20 years and let it be a lesson to him and anyone else thinking of doing a similar hoax.

    6 months actual time. He'll need suicide watch, though.

    Exact opposite. Some here aren't embarrassed to change our minds with fresh evidence - and, brace yourself - admit when we are wrong.

    I think we use this conviction to refer Jussie to federal hate crimes prosecution. To the federal pen Jussie should go. I bet he'll be a big hit.

    Why? He doesn't seem particularly interested in harming himself. Just the nation that he attempted to defraud by his actions.

    He seems to be a 'sensitive petal' with a knack for creating trouble out of thin air!

    We rarely agree here, but may I point out the humorous irony of both our statements. :aww:

    I could see a 10 year sentence being enough. It's not like we don't already have ******** like him blatantly committing crime and playing the race card, there needs to be a message sent about being responsible for your actions.

    Sad he lost but he shouldn't beat himself up about it.

    Now.. on to Kim Potter. Who, like K.R., never should have been charged criminally.

    He has no prior criminal history, and this was not a violent crime - I mean other than to himself. Unlikely he will see any jail time. My best guess is community service + some probation, and hopefully restitution for the 3,000 man-hours his lies cost the Chicago PD.

    Agreed. I didn't, initially, assume it was a false reporting. But it became obvious that's exactly what it was. And I'm glad he's being held legally responsible. The country has enough problems with out ones being made up out of thin air!

    No one else seems interested
    about igniting race (and maybe
    lgbtetcetc. too) riots.
    Of course with his face stamped
    on such riots to boost his failing career.
    No doubt that was his premeditation
    for his plan.

    Jussie planned it that way, as suggested above.
    And should face intent to start a riot
    consequences.
    Not jus lying to police.
    Which is S.O.P. for some cultures.

    The "details" of the "assault" fabricated by the Lyin King and reported to the "racist police" never added up. It should have been obvious to any objective observer from the word "GO" that this was a cynical ploy to deepen the racial animus that plagues our society, for reasons known only to the new convict.

    I will take any jail time Smollett gets as a nice bonus. I think is ultimate punishment is he is getting exactly the opposite of he so desperately wanted. He craved attention, sympathy, fame and a springboard to rocket his acting career. Instead his career is dead his reputation destroyed and this is not the attention he wanted. I feel justice is served.

    I think if riots did happen you may have a valid discussion. Then you would have to consider how much Smollett urged or egged on the riots like some are doing now with Trump and 1/6. What about the other organizers and actual people involved etc... I do not hold Trump legally responsible for the 1/6 riots so it is pretty hard to hold Smollett responsible for riots that never happened.

    Hmm, I missed the part where Rampart admitted he was wrong.
