    Im glad you are having an open mind about the outcome and im sorry for anything affecting your or any community. However, as you know being on this site, we can only go off what was "reported thus far" And what was reported:

    "Smollett took himself to Northwestern Hospital and "is in good condition,"

    investigators canvassed the neighborhood where the reported attack occurred and have found no still images or video from security cameras of the incident.

    The Streeterville neighborhood where the alleged attack occurred has a very high density of city and private surveillance cameras. As of 10 p.m. Tuesday, detectives canvassed and reviewed hundreds of hours of video and have now expanded.

    Unfortunately, thus far we have not found any helpful information on a suspect or a suspect's vehicle to be able to share."

    I too would except and champion against any crime and stand with you. Don't mistake my skepticism for tolerance of criminal activity, however I followed many of these cases, some touted, some not in the media and most are false claims that make it harder on true victims of crime. I believe in evidence before narrative and at this point you can point to the media as to why doubt outlandish claims without fact checking first. Not the other way around..

    Also, this matter is being taken seriously by the authorities. I mean the FBI is involved??? Just because we are both looking for truth in the situation, blindly "believing" is not the rout I take when the facts stated don't add up. Much like child abductions that don't follow the logical path without evidence. Just know regardless, WE ALL are against crime of any sort and look to help others. That is why we signed up on here. Thank you for your point of view and sharing your experience. I look forward to seeing justice served in this situation, one way or another..

    I believe the attack happened, just not sure it was how the media is twisting it. I’ve seen several versions so far. I’m not convinced it’s being reported the way Jussie actually stated it happened.
    Let’s see what comes straight from LE or Jussie.

    I think it's a publicity stunt. There were cameras everywhere, yet nobody was seen anywhere attacking him or being around him. He also ended up only with a small scratch after being beaten and having a noose put around his neck. Just my opinion.

    Nice. I don't like his voice, not a lot of depth. Flat.

    He has been charged with a felony.

    How is he a victim?

    Where am I right now?

    Right, which makes him no longer a victim.

    What in the world

    Can’t say I’m surprised though.

    Jussie Smollett victimized everyone. People who live in the area, and are black or gay, felt on edge, like they could be attacked as well. A noose is no joke. It is serious criminal behavior.

    White people also were victims here, and people who were normally friends, wondered if they could have been the attackers. They were collectively "guilty".

    I won't go onto to the political figures Smollett victimized, or everyone else who believed Smollett.

    Smollett is a sociopath, to plan such a heinous act, for some sort of attention, or profit to sell tickets for his show. He lied to so many people, it is epic. And all for some twisted self aggrandizement. He didn't care who he hurt.

    I'm so glad Jussie is getting justice. He deserves it.

    There could have been even more victims as well. Say cameras captured 2 white men in the area of the “attack”, and police tracked them down and arrested them. What would Jussie have said? I would wager he would have kept the charade going and said those were the people who attacked him

    Great work by the CPD in this case.

    It never ceases to amaze me how certain people preach love and unity, but end up being the most hateful and divisive. They also do their best to segregate instead of include. What irony!
