The charging and arrest of #JussieSmollet is devastating on so many levels. I still believe that hate crime victims should be believed and treated as victims until the evidence proves otherwise.
But when the evidence ends in a false reporting charge it is profoundly damaging. There are scores of unsolved violent crimes in Chicago that require & merit the attention of the CPD. The diversion of their resources to investigate false reports harms victims & communities.
There are also those who will use one incident to disbelieve hate crime victims. I reject that out of hand. There were over 7,000 hate crimes reported to the FBI in 2017 - a thousand more than in 2016. Black ppl are disproportionately the victims.

Leaks out of the Chicago PD say that investigators believe @JussieSmollett staged the hoax hate attack with two African men connected to “Empire.” Whatever the end results show, I’d like to chronicle some of the responses at the time the news broke of the alleged brutal attack.
Jussie Smollett has powerful & influential friends despite the victim narrative he clings to. Democratic Presidential hopeful @KamalaHarris said that this was an “attempted modern day lynching” to much applause.
Jussie’s celebrity co-star @LadyGraceByers used the occasion to smear the United States. She wrote that “hatred, inequality, racism and discrimination continue to course through our country's veins.”…
