Jussie Smollett sentenced!

Juicy's been stress eating. Look at him. He's the victim here.:cautious:
 


150 days in county sucks, he'd rather be in a state pen but OH WELL them the breaks.

Guy is obviously a flaming iddjutt the way he keeps denying even though all the evidence, his buddies that helped him, his cell phone, he's one of those liars that believes his own lies. A good quality for an actor to have perhaps. He probably should have refrained from speaking though.
 
Seems a bit extreme of a punishment for crying wolf. Why is wasting the police's time punished more diligently and more severely than actual police brutality?
 
Hopefully he has learned his lesson and will be able to move on once his sentence is complete.

Smollett beat himself up to get attention and he has been successful, be careful what you wish for when you try and scam the public.
 
Only 150 days for a hate crime hoax? Seems light considering he was charged with 5 felonies (last I read).
I agree. Considering that he did not admit to his hoax or show remorse, he should not have been offered probation. In the least, he should serve 30 months in jail. He cost the courts much more then the $120,000 restitution and $20,000 fine. He ended up getting a slap on the wrist.
 
Hopefully, he will get the chance to hang out with some of those uneducated Trump supporters. They will love making his life as comfortable as possible.
Another model citizen on display.

Not sure how things work in that court, but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesnt serve every one of those 150 days. He should though.

His arrogance at the end says to me "I didnt learn a thing!" Maybe the judge will consider that in denying early release. I dunno, I'm glad he was punished what I would call "fairly", I think the guy is an obvious racist and arsehole.

Extreme? This douche lied about a hate crime, staged it and then had the entire nation responding ... all because he was selfish.
 
Sounds like a first class idiot:

He is an idiot for wasting so much police time for what?
More publicity to show he is an idiot?
It's a good thing no black people died in this dumb story.
Otherwise we'd be looking at Ben Crump trying to make millions and Al Sharpton trying to show what a great black leader he is on TV.

And nobody was killed or injured, there wasn't a financial pretense like a lawsuit against the city or anything... in terms of real world harm and moral culpability for it, the dude did nothing wrong beyond actually getting attention. I just don't see why this is a proportional punishment for anything he personally did. Maybe if getting air time for being a douche was punishable by law, they'd have a point with the jail time, but last I checked, that wasn't a crime.

The real world harm is that he gave the talking morons in the media, and the treasonous politicians, something to lie about for a year, smearing tens of millions of Americans in the process and further eroding race relations in this country, all done deliberately, and he has not yet even admitted that he lied for personal gain.

He was found guilty on five felonies, and that should have been three-strikes territory, IMO. He got off super easy.
 
Really? As far as I can tell he's guilty of harming no one.
People go to jail for crimes that do not "harm" people. However, he harmed taxpayers economically. He harmed the TV show he worked on. He harmed the efforts of groups seeking police reforms. He harmed me because I had to watch his BS on the news for a year.
 
Smollet is probably lucky that he isn't a member of the evil blue eyed melanin deprived genetically recessive global minority or he would have had certainly had been given an appropriate sentence. ;)

So anybody should just call the police with fake crimes and then nothing should happen. Really? That is really your position?
