Jury Selection Begins for Jussie Smollett Trial


Last year actor Jussie Smollett was indicted on six counts of making false police reports after claiming he had been attacked in Chicago by homophobic Donald Trump supporters [click here if you missed that]. 

Jury selection for Jussie's trial starts today...

Jussie Smollett is accused of lying to police about his attack and is charged with felony disorderly conduct. 

Jussie's alleged attackers, Nigerian brothers Able and Ola Osundario, are witnesses for the prosecution and are expected to testify that Jussie paid them $3,500 to attack him. 

Jussie could face up to three years in prison if convicted.

I'm no Jussie fan, but this is ridiculous, especially considering we have YT murderers walking free. All Jussie did was lie about getting his @$$ whooped. YT's always have extra energy to go after Blacks, but somehow the Kyles and Zimmermans of the world deserve less scrutiny. The man's shame is enough but you know kneegrows like Lightfoot have to help crucify Black men. You'd think he did something heinous when YT folks lie all of the time too. We all got a good laugh out of Jussie but the punishment doesn't fit the crime.

Why is Chicago concentrating on Jussie so much? Waste of tax money. They have so much more going on to the point that little kids are carrying guns and doing car jackings. The Chicago government needs to concentrate on that!

Jussie lied and that lie could have started a whole lot of mess in Chicago. All he needed to do was tell the truth but instead, he told lie after lie after lie. Those African brothers are going to tell it all. Jussie should make a deal and stop the humiliation.

I bet he wishes he had paid that $130K now.

I still believe him. Its mad racsists in the River North Area of Chicago. A Black female security guard was attacked in this same area by a Hwite man she was trying to help not long before this incident. Its a lot of racist establishments down there in that area.

Law enforcement has unlimited resources to hang a Black man who told a fib, but they be darned if they waste good "kneegrow hunting" resources on Tamir Rice's killer or other types of violent crimes.

@10:41, you can't prosecute Jussie based what could've happened because that is speculation, plus no one Black believed him anyway, so what race war would it have caused? Lol

If the officials are this diligent about non-violent crime, why aren't they diligent about violent crimes, hmmmm? It's because they don’t mind you killing yourselves but don't dare lie on invisible YT guys. Lol

If he doesn't show any more proof, than what we already know, he will be found guilty with probation.

@9:52 @10:09 My sentiments exactly!

Jussie did more than tell a lie. He told a lie on an imaginary white person, he plotted a hoax (according to the African siblings who carried it out), he said he was victimized because he is Black and gay, and he allowed his coworkers to stand by him as he lied.

Ain't no way they'll sweep this under the carpet.

He also said he was being vilified because he is the gay Tupac lol

Stop deflecting, it's so ignorant. Look over there and not over here face a55. This mf lied time and time again. Made it about race and hatred! Had opportunity after opportunity to right his wrong and didn't. This narcissist was asked to pay back money that was wasted and hasn't. He could have made this go away and chose not to. Ya'll look stupid af defending this clown.

He also never admitted that he lied. He's a pathological liar, and I agree with 3:16--had he at least paid up this wouldn't have gone to trial. Now it's going to rehash his shenanigans.

I just remember when this shit unfolded how funny it was seeing a liar get caught as he doubled down. This was so stupid and it just didn't make sense why he did this in the first place. His career is gone, and now his credibility. He can't even work at a Subway if he wanted to!
