These are my posts as AdroitWaterBear and those of others on One America News Network, "Police release Smollett videos, show different events from night of the alleged hoax", 06-25-19.
Drugs and alcohol can provide some horrible motivations and decision making.
He was well paid to do it, remember he's an actor.
@AdroitWaterBear The Staged "Crime" was bad enough, but the Real Crime was in how many people Upheld Him in his actions, prior to, during, and after this event. If he can Admit that he is At Fault, he could get the help that he needs.
@JL Whitecotten Some people upheld Smollett just as they upheld OJ Simpson. During the OJ trial people I thought were "friends" told me that they knew OJ killed his wife and friend, they did not care that he killed them, and they were glad that he killed them. The reason for it being understood and unspeakable. Gave me the heebie jeebies, especially because my "friends" felt free to say such an awful thing to me. They really meant it.
By the way, did you notice that Smollett held up a black leather gloved hand to the cameras when he thought he got away with his race riot baiting? It was just like the glove OJ wore during his murders and that glove was part of what got him off. Most people know that leather shrinks if you get it wet, like OJ's glove shrank when soaked in the blood of his wife and friend, but OJ's defense convinced everyone that glove was too small a size so OJ couldn't have worn it, and that was part of why OJ got free of his crime. America is being played, and Smollett mocks us by waving a black glove in front of our faces. A lot of people knew what he meant: Smollett got away with his race riot baiting just like OJ got away with his murders.
THAT Race Baiting Lying ASSRAG Must Be Put Away A Long Time! IT WAS A HATE CRIME. And SMOLLET COMMITTED IT!
