And I'll repeat the comparison example I gave earlier. 

 

If I murdered someone because I wanted to shine a light on racism, should my motives be commended?

Slip of the keyboard. He was not jailed for his alleged crimes. Therefore, like it or not he is entirely innocent in the eyes of the law. Argue all you like, the fact remains everything is an allegation until a court says otherwise.

Now, if he IS found guilty and he DID do what he is being accused of then the full weight of the law should be dropped right in him.

Lol slip of the keyboard?  No, you are just wrong.  You can't say "well why don't they arrest him" and then when bpointout he was arrested say slip of the keyboard, I didn't mean that".

 

You don't have to be jailed to be considered guilty.  He was not cleared, not found innocent.  He accepted an alternative prosecution.  So he was prosecuted for the crime and accepted a punishment.

 

 

You are wrong.

The motives, according to the prosecution (which he and his legal team accepted) were to get a pay rise. 

 

Why do you think his motives were different and what evidence do you have to support your claims?

Dehumanising word. He may have done something wrong, but he's most definitely a human being.

But obviously Trump is not, going by the adjectives you have used to describe him over the last couple of years Lol..

My claim that he is innocent until proved guilty in a court of law?

No, your claim that his motive was to expose racism.

My claim was he probably did it to shine a light on racism. Until a court says otherwise im happy to still believe that.

Perhaps you should watch his heart felt interview not long after the alleged attack.

I have seen a few of his interviews.  I believed him at first.

 

When did he say in his interviews that he faked the hate crime to shine a light on racism in America?  I haven't seen that.

 

It is no longer an alleged attack.

 

You have made a huge number of factual errors on this case, yet you still seem happy to assert opinions.  Defending a black person blindly makes you a racist, not forward thinking.

 

Treat Smollet in the same way you would treat a right winger caught lying about being attacked by Muslims.

Was this the interview you saw?

Perhaps you should read the case files, you’ll find them quite illuminating.

 

That an actor gave a ‘heartfelt’ interview is evidence of nothing. 

 

So you're happy to believe something without a shred of evidence? Why?

Waj , I was courteous enough to answer your earlier post. Would you be so kind as to offer me the same courtesy and answer my question to you in post #75 please ?
