Six counts of disorderly conduct- Iĺm guessing he wonĺt be sent to the Big House.

They might as well have done six counts of jaywalking.

Yes.  That's the take away.  I misspelled a word.

You've cried for several posts now that Smollett's going to get off "light", despite the fact that no one here seems to have any idea what the baseline is, you're just sure that he's getting preferential treatment because of money and/or SJW politics.

But by all means continue to bloviate uselessly because I misspelled "sentence", in a context to in which my meaning was pretty dang clear.

Smollett's going to get off "light", despite the fact that no one here seems to have any idea what the baseline is, you're just sure that he's getting preferential treatment because of money and/or SJW politics.

While I'm still interested in as you said, "baseline data",  rereading the thread, something Brimic said stood out:

Quote
I thought that it was a horrible precedent to not prosecute someone trying to cause social upheaval by committing fake hate crimes,

That is something it will be hard to "baseline", because it's where his "fame" comes in. His celebrity and political and other connections created a situation where there could have been actual riots leading to property destruction, injuries, or even death. There is no doubt that his celebrity and diversity got this 100x the exposure it would have gotten were he some black, gay guy living in suburbia and working at an IT firm or similar.

I guess a sorta analogy might be the Zimmerman/Martin thing: Had Al Sharpton etc. not gotten involved, or had it been white on white or black on black thing, we wouldn't have had BLM, violent protests, and everyone's routes to work being blocked, causing all kinds of expensive upheaval.

Maybe it's the 24/7 news to blame for "celebrity escalation", and it's unfair to hand a harsher sentence to the famous person, but I think there is little doubt that the damaging fallout to innocent society is greater than if some unknown does the same thing.

This is the unfortunate reality.
I don't think it's wise to try for some kind of famous person modifier assuming you're also opposed to a hate crime modifier.

But by all means continue to bloviate uselessly

I honestly don't know why you'd expect anything else.

dogmush,

Before you got into baseless personal attacks, you were making a good point. It seems like this is an emotional issue for you, but the fact that I countered your argument and mocked your spelling doesnĺt make my 4 short replies into several posts of crying or bloviating, as you claim.

I think youĺre probably right that people reporting fake crimes donĺt usually get the book thrown at them. Still, if one of those cases became as high-profile and expensive as this one, I think itĺs not unreasonable to expect that the city would throw several books at them. I suspect, if I staged a hate crime in Chicago, and it somehow became as big a story as the Smollett case, I would be in far more trouble than Smollett is now. That's because I'm not wealthy, famous, black, or a pervert.
