The verdict is in:
A verdict was reached in the Jussie Smollett criminal trial Thursday, nearly three years after he told police two Trump-loving bigots beat him up, tied a noose around his neck and doused him in bleach on a blistering night in January 2019.
The hate crime Smollett claimed he suffered sparked international outrage, and then disgust, when police said he made the whole thing up.
This isn’t the only fake hate crime in recent years.
This is to be expected. Whenever the market demand is greater than the supply there will be criminals taking advantage of the situation and supplying fake goods.
