And Just Like That, The Smollett Story Begins to Unravel

Never underestimate the power of human stupidity. Smollett, two others in “active interviews” with Chicago police; Evidence of police “slow play” emerging.

That story about 2 MAGA-hat-wearing Hillbillies in Streeterville (perhaps the most expensive neighborhood, in one of the Bluest cities in American) never rang true. (Even before the cops said they couldn’t find them on any security camera.) Streeterville is the very definition of the Limousine Liberal Set.

The two “persons of interest” that have been talked about turn out to be African American and known to Smollett. One is an actor he has worked with in the past.

TMZ also reported that police used “rideshare and/or taxicab records” to identify the “persons of interest” and to track their movements on the night of the purported attack.

And if “rideshare” records from Lyft weren’t enough, there is apparently a receipt for the purchase of clothesline at ACE Hardware. (The “rope” in question, apparently.) What? Nobody who is cool uses CASH!

Nothing says “Bonehead” like leaving an electronic trail behind you while on your super-secret, covert operation to discredit people you don’t like.

Smollett this week turned over “heavily redacted” phone records from the night of the alleged attack. Guglielmi said the submitted documents did not meet the burden of a criminal investigation. Investigators already received Smollett’s complete phone records via a subpoena served on his service provider, according to a source close quoted by CWBChicago on Feb. 4.

A source familiar with the records provided by the Empire star states that Smollett downloaded his phone activity into a spreadsheet and then deleted certain phone calls before handing over the records. “He did the [detectives’] job for them because then they only had to focus on the numbers he deleted.”

That last sentence makes me smile. In the words of Bugs Bunny, “What a maroon!”

In other news, Smollett hired the PR firm that handled stuff for Harvey Weinstein. Info on the PR firm being hired via Second City Cop – Paging Mr. Weinstein , and Second City Cop’s original take on the situation is at this link.

There should be a nice hot cup of Schadenfreude ready soon, with a hint of liberal tears added for sweetness.

  1. The surprise here is that the police seem to have done a competent investigation.

    The bitter part is that so few of the “hate crimes” we see on the news are real that it’s not worth your time to pay attention. Just ignore them.

    • They couldn’t blow him off, given his high profile with the media – that would have started a whole other media campaign.

      And not just that it is yet ANOTHER fake hate crime, but the complete arrogance – dare I say insanity – of using rideshare apps to get around, paying for the rope with credit (probably Apple pay or Android Pay, because they are cool) etc. Actors are definitely not rocket scientists, but you would think that they have at least seen CSI or one of the other million cop shows….


  2. The post comments on the intelligence of those involved in this operation, even after noting their melanin content. Come on now! Seriously, what would you EXPECT from this crowd??? Yeah, there are exceptions, but have you LOOKED at “urban youfs” in the hives lately???
