On Friday, “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett was indicted Friday on 16 felony accounts following his made up Chicago race-hating attack.

This is good news, and hopefully, the trial will end with a lengthy prison sentence for this attention-seeking actor. It’s about time these fake “hate” crimes were penalized because every single fake one (and most are) keeps real ones from even being noticed.

Back in January, Smollett told Chicago police two white men attacked him in masks as he was walking home from a sandwich shop in the early morning. Smollett claimed these masked men beat him, made derogatory comments and yelled, “This is MAGA country,” — an attempt to drum up sympathy for him and hatred toward President Trump and his followers. It worked for a few weeks as Hollywood, and the opposition media formed lines of support behind him, but then the walls closed in as the truth started showing holes.

According to the Chicago Police, it turns out that Smollett paid two brothers, one of them who had worked on the tv show set, Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo $3,5000 via a check for a “phony attack.”

Jussie Smollett has been hit with an additional 15 counts of filing a false police report by a grand jury.

The Empire actor was initially charged with one Class 4 Felony charge of disorderly conduct last month but a grand jury has applied that charge 15 times over in an 86-page indictment that was returned on Thursday.

Each new charge does not pose any additional prison time but carries a maximum probation sentence of four years.

Now, he is facing a maximum sentence of three years behind bars, 60 years probation and a $25,000 fine.

Neither Smollett’s legal team nor Cook County prosecutors have commented on the new indictment which was first reported by CWB.

Plea deal? He needs to be made an example of! We Americans are tired of these racist mobster Democrats attacking us from every angle. It’s time they pay a YUGE price!

Smollett needs to be punished to the full extent of the law. The leftist media will stop at nothing to spin this in a way that preserves the false narrative that the US is a racist, bigoted, homophobic country.

The Smollett case is not a tragedy but instead brings to light a greater problem of victimhood which often uses race as a way to get ahead revenge or attention. Jussie needs to do serious time. How is the federal case progressing on the letter sent?

As a black man, I am no more or less afraid of racism now than I was as a child. Please stop acting like we are still living in the civil rights era. My grandmother and great grandmother did not fight for equal treatment so that people today could claim racism every time they had their feelings hurt. Hate crimes happen, I do not deny that, but they are in the overwhelming minority and not even close to as common as the media would like us to believe, look up the actual numbers and compare that to our population.
