I'm Going To Let The Commissioner Say It

I might have added how many hours of police investigative resources were spent on this, but he hits the high points pretty well.

As to the question of why, Jussie understood that he would be immediately believed by the left and the media  making white people, especially Republicans, look like racists. He didn't care about the harm he was causing to our society, race relations, or the city of Chicago, because harming those things was what he was try to accomplish.

I'm now at the point where I'm ready for "falsely reporting a hate crime" to be prosecuted as a hate crime itself.

Let me explain:

Jussie Smollett knew he would be believed. That much is certain.

He also must have known that the "crime" he reported would only increase division among his community and inflame racial tensions, that his report would increase the anger at straight, white people and thus justify future attacks on white people.

In short, it would aggravate the "Othering" that race-based advocacy groups are pushing.

And isn't that "Othering" what hate crimes are all about, and what ultimately leads to more hate crimes?

Well said, Commissioner.
