Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson said Tuesday that actor Jussie Smollett would face consequences if found to have filed a fake police report on a supposed attack on himself by Trump-supporting bandits.
The police chief’s remarks could serve as the strongest indicator yet that the Chicago Police Department are treating the attack- in which Smollett claims he was mobbed by a group of men wearing MAGA hats and chanting abuse- with a sense of skepticism.
Police investigating the incident are said to be subpoenaing Smollett’s phone records, as the actor claimed to have been on the phone with his manager during the event. He’s thus far refused to allow police to examine his phone, possibly substantiating or disproving his claims.
Smollett also claimed that the attackers- who told him that “This is MAGA Country” in downtown Chicago- placed rope around his neck and doused him in a liquid substance. Investigators have determined that the rope Smollett claimed was used was recently purchased, and are inquiring with local retailers about sales of similar products.
Thus far no suspects have been positively identified for the attack. Smollett was on surveillance camera footage for all but a 60-second window on the night the alleged attack took place- meaning he was assaulted, doused with liquid, and roped around the neck within that time, all while “fighting back” against his attackers.
Filing a false police report is a class four felony in the state of Illinois, and can get you a jail sentence in addition to hefty fines.
CHAOS: Minnesota Rioters Loot Freely For Second Straight Day After George Floyd’s Death
Apparently, the incident is a chance for theft.
Crowds of rioters continued sporadic looting on Wednesday, two days after a Minneapolis man named George Floyd died after highly questionable treatment at the hands of police during an arrest.
A crowd of unruly “protestors” could be seen ransacking an area Target, compiling expensive TV’s and leaving the store with material goods.
More footage reveals a sizable crowd of looters retrieving whatever they can, without fear of any repercussion from law enforcement.

Supporters of the Floyd riots have claimed that the initial response from law enforcement- which featured police deploying tear gas on protestors- was wildly out of proportion, and racist in nature, comparing the response to that used against anti-coronavirus lockdown protestors.
However, the display of criminality that appears closely related to the Floyd riots wasn’t seen from lockdown protestors, who have protested in a largely peaceful manner.
More footage from local news shows widespread evidence of criminality and riotous violence from Floyd rioters, including throwing rocks at police, breaking store windows, and tagging property with spray paint.
The death of Floyd was in fact highly questionable, and four police officers have already been fired from the Minnesota Police Department as a result of the footage, which revealed an officer kneeling on Floyd’s neck for an extended period. That doesn’t excuse criminal behavior targeting a business, which appears wholly motivated by material interest as opposed to real indignation against the Minneapolis Police Department.
