Chicago PD Assigned 24 Detectives to Smollett Case

2019 February 20
by bc3b

There was a time when Chicago was known for afternoon baseball (before the Cubs installed lights); now it’s known for murders.

In Chicago, the odds of a murder being solved are roughly one in six (15.4%). Yet, political correctness dictated the Chicago Police assign 24 detectives to the “fake noose” investigation involving Jussie Smollett. After all, Chicago has its priorities.

Something important has been lost in the embarrassing saga of Jussie Smollett, the tuna fish sandwich-loving actor and anti-Trump activist, and those muscular Nigerian brothers.

And I suppose it’s easy to lose what’s important with all the panic and intersectional hatred and liberal identity politics gone bad in this Smollett story.

(snip)

What’s been lost is this:

I’m told that two dozen detectives were assigned to the Smollett case.

Can Chicago afford that, what with all the unsolved murders and shootings in this town?

No.

There were some 18 people killed in Chicago after Smollett began telling his story in late January, that story in which he cast himself as the hero, about having to fight off pro-Trump racists.

Now it turns out that the pro-Trump racists, who he says put a noose around his neck, may actually be his friends, two muscular Nigerian brothers who may or may not have been paid in this deal.

Either way, his story is he fought them off. Even though he had a cellphone in one hand, a tuna sandwich in the other.

Smollett must be a certified badass. His sandwich survived.

(snip)

A few weeks ago, after Smollett began telling his tale — in which he’s the hero fighting oppression and hatred — a 1-year-old child was shot in the head.

It looked like a street gang may have been targeting his mother. She’s been shot before. The child, Dejon Irving, is on life support.

I don’t think there were two dozen detectives assigned to Dejon Irving’s case. But he’s not a star to be used by politicians in pursuit of power. He’s not a symbol.

Politicians don’t tweet his name. He’s just a little boy from Chicago, shot in the head.

    We have reached a stage when being politically incorrect is considered a more serious crime than murder. Sad commentary on our times.

    Kamela Harris and Cory Booker needed the maximum effort, in order to have a few more days to fan the RACIST fire they helped start.

    by all accounts the Chicago PD knew this story stunk within 24 hours.

    now the scumbag’s attorney has pressured the Chicago PD to hold off presenting their COPIOUS evidence to a Grand Jury. And, being Chicago, they AGREED!!!

    That is the core of the issue isn’t it? A consequence of a PC mindset is that it puts the perceived ‘victim’ front and center and damn the consequences to anyone else. Forget the reputation of an institution you might destroy that feeds you. (Mizzo) Forget the outcomes of others who need the resources more. (Jussie) Ignore the fact that given the right circumstances you might end up in jail as a result. (bobbit)

    There can always be actions of passion and maybe deserves a pass. But ole Jussie, in this case he had time to not only think up this scheme but more than sufficient time to contemplate the consequences. As such I have no F’s to give the man. May he be prosecuted, tried and serve the entire term of his incarceration.

    the Chicago DA added up Smollett’s immunities:
    – Black
    – Gay
    – Democrat
    – Celebrity
    – Close friend of Kamela Harris

    The only box he didn’t check was “Muslim”. Maybe that was the last minute phone call from Smollett’s lawyer: “Did we mention he is a MUSLIM?

    That would win Victimhood Bingo!!

    9 to the 7,

    Yep. Running the tax calculator here’s what I get….

    $15/hr —-> $30600 for 2040hrs —-> $1068 for a Illy state single filer.
    $8.25/hr –> $16830 for 2040hrs —-> $ 551 for same filer.

    State gains $517 if facts on the ground remain the same.

    These suckers down at the state house are getting a raise on the back of the poor. Fewer people will get that new hourly rate thanks to this great thinking of theirs. BC is right too! Caly better start thinking hard cuz Illy is gaining on them for winner of the State Bankruptcy Sweepstakes.

    While I imagine WaPo will wind up settling the case, I hope it costs them somewhere NORTH of $100 million to do so!!

    They were utterly negligent (at best)..and their culpability only gets far worse from there. If discovery shows that WaPo had ANY misgivings and/or actual contrary information prior to or after they published their SERIES of articles, then they are in very serious jeopardy. And should be.

    AOC misuse of campaign funds?

    https://twitchy.com/sarahd-313035/2019/02/20/wapo-journo-who-blamed-conservatives-for-aocs-shady-boyfriend-issues-silent-after-luke-thompsons-expose/

    As Twitchy told you, Luke Thompson has roared back from being punished by Twitter for questioning Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend having a House email account in a big way. After doing some further digging, Thompson discovered that Brand New Congress Super PAC, a liberal super PAC, paid AOC’s boyfriend Riley Roberts $6,000 to be its sole “marketing consultant,” despite the fact that Roberts had no marketing expertise. And Roberts’ two $3,000 payments just so happened to bookend a $6,191.32 payment from AOC’s campaign to Brand New Congress, despite the campaign being in the financial hole.

    In short, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appears to have an ethics problem — with a healthy dose of hypocrisy, of course

    This mofo needs jail time x2, one stint for the Chicago BS and not just a weekend, and another for the letter he mailed himself – which yeah I’m reminded of the movie The Firm – “Do you know what happened when he put a stamp on it — it became a federal offense, mail fraud”.

    Examples must be made to much of this happens on the regular with ZERO consequences. My guess is he walks in the end. At least he’s already being cut out of scene and appearances scaled back in whatever show it is he’s on, or so I read yesterday.

    The media is VERY concerned about the arrest of Smollett this morning.

    – are they upset that he FAKED a Hate Crime?
    – are they upset that he BLAMED “White Trump supporters?”
    – are they upset that he LIED repeatedly…and called anyone who doubted him a “RACIST!” ??
    – are they upset that the Chicago PD wasted hundreds of hours, and tens of thousands of dollars pursing a HOAX??

    Nah. They’re upset because they lost their narrative…and people might trust the media even less (if that is possible).

    What this event really signifies is that real hate crimes are rare in a country with 350 million people. That almost all of these “Hate Crimes” are HOAXES. And it reinforces the FACT that the media doesn’t give a damn about the truth…just the narrative.

    Speaking of Nike, this week’s “game of the century” between North Carolina and Duke ended up being a blow-out when Duke’s star player’s Nike show “blew out” 33 seconds into the game, causing him to injure his knee and leave the game:

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/zion-williamson-injured-nike-vows-investigation-after-duke-stars-shoe-blows-out/
