Juror Admits Smollett’s Obvious Guilt Played Decisive Role In Verdict

 

A juror in the Jussie Smollett trial acknowledged to a Chicago news reporter Monday that deliberations never centered on Smollett’s race, sexual orientation, politics, or celebrity status. Instead, she said, what ultimately convinced the jury to convict was Smollett’s obvious guilt.

“Deliberations took nine hours because Starbucks screwed up the foreman’s order,” she said, adding “It’s obvious except to the most blinkered partisans that Smollett was guilty of perpetuating a hoax which caused the city to redirect well over $100,000 in taxpayer funds to investigate a fake crime even as record-setting actual crimes ravage the city, especially in minority communities.”

Since his conviction, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated Smollett for Best Performance On The Witness Stand by a Gay Man of Color. Additionally, the Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter has awarded Smollett a lifetime achievement award for his work on behalf of black immigrants from Africa.

    David Deeble: Since his conviction, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has nominated Smollett for Best Performance On The Witness Stand by a Gay Man of Color.

    However, the Academy declined to nominate him for writing Best Screenplay, Best Director or Best Casting for a Fictional Short.

    According to one critic who requested anonymity, “The script was all over the place, with muddled character motivations, cringeworthy dialogue, and unbelievable premises, the direction was haphazard at best, and who casts white supremecists with dark skinned Nigerians?”

    That interview with Robin Roberts deserves an Emmy nomination.  In what category, I don’t know; however, it was one for the ages.

    Robert’s might win a Golden Globe for best supporting role in perpetuating fake news…

    Still doubt he will be punished.  Maybe a fine.  Some community service at a pet Democrat project for maximum media exposure and on he goes.

    Well, you may be right. A lot going around right now in casting black people in white people roles… 😂

    Smollett’s interview with police inside his apartment after the claimed attack was caught on body camera footage.

    Johnson said victims usually abandon whatever they have with them when they’re attacked “because they’re afraid.”

    “This guy had the sandwich in his hand, never been touched. So that was a real tip and a clue to us that something was amiss.”

    — Eddie Johnson, former Chicago police superintendent

    Subway needs a better ad agency for sure. First this fatso pedophile, then the pink-haired alpha female soccer player, so maybe that slogan would work!

    If for nothing else, the Smollett fiasco was good for some great Ricochet humor.

    I’m still waiting for Dan Rather to pronounce Smollet’s story to be “fake but accurate.”
