    Considering his background of lying to LE before, he is a liability to the network so I hope they don't cook up something like that with him.

    (Much snipped above by me!)

    However, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, there are about 250,000 bias incidents yearly in the U. S., about half of which are reported. Apparently it does national surveys to estimate the number of all crime incidents, including hate crimes, and is the second main government resource for tracking crimes, the other being the FBI resource linked in the post you responded to.

    Bureau of Justice Statistics - Hate Crime Victimization, 2004-2015 Press Release

    [National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS)
    Data collected from a nationally representative sample of households that are interviewed twice a year about criminal victimization.

    WASHINGTON — U.S. residents experienced an average of 250,000 hate crime victimizations each year from 2004 to 2015 and the majority of these were not reported to police, the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) announced today. There was no statistically significant change in the rate of violent hate crime victimization (about 0.7 per 1,000 persons age 12 or older) during the 12-year period.

    Violent crime accounted for a higher percentage of hate (90 percent) than nonhate (25 percent) victimizations during 2011-15. The majority of hate crimes during the period were simple assault (62 percent), followed by aggravated assault (18 percent), robbery (8 percent) and theft (7 percent).

    Findings are from BJS's National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS), which collects data on nonfatal crimes both reported and not reported to police. Hate crimes in the NCVS are defined according to the Hate Crime Statistics Act, which specifies hate crimes as those that manifest evidence of prejudice based on race, gender or gender identity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or ethnicity.

    For Chicago natives they just want this whole story and frankly Empire to just get the hell out. There is so much crime and murder in Chicago that they are numb to it. Just as your post relays, people who live there and have all their lives they are insulted. They know they cannot walk to get a sandwich at 2AM on a good day. They cannot let their children walk down the street alone to their little friends house in broad daylight. Much less what is claimed by this wannabe "star"

    JS is no Heath Ledger. He barely got a scratch (and just a scratch - no broken bones, black eyes, etc). A real method actor wouldn't have played pat-a-cake. It was far too convenient for JS to be barely touched and then off singing so I don't think a jury would buy it.

    Seriously? The truth is the truth. Not something that takes your legal and crisis team three days to create. What new information will come to light, that was not available on Friday?

    I wondered if the scratches weren't makeup.

    I think we should focus on this crime, and Jussie Smollett.

    This is good evidence he was upset about the letter under-reaction. IMO

    Agreed. And the data and links to the prevalence of actual hate crimes perpetrated in the US is relevant and valuable to this discussion and thread, imo.

    It provides balance, perspective and context — and it steers us all back to the topic at hand. Moo

    If the assault on Smollett was staged, then wouldn't his allegations constitute a hate crime against his imaginary "white" attackers? Is it a new era where data and prevalence of hate crimes against white people needs to be brought to the surface? Hypothetically, could a white woman who is raped by a man from any other race also be a victim of a hate crime - hate of women and hate of white people?

    Jussie Smollett Ready to Talk to Police Again, Grand Jury Standing By

    [...]

    Ola and Abel Osundairo were at a Chicago courthouse Tuesday, ready to testify before the grand jury ... according to sources connected to the case, however, that was nixed at the last minute. We're told they got a call that Jussie's legal team -- and possibly Jussie himself -- had agreed to talk to police.

    [...]

    Our sources say the brothers told police they had nothing to do with the letter, and only saw it in a photo on Jussie's phone.

    We reached out to the Osundairos' attorney, Gloria Schmidt, for comment ... and she said, "All the facts will come out soon."

    Ugh. It was pretty clear he was auditioning for a place on the team the other night on one of the videos you posted.
