The rope

They confirmed video shows Smollett walking across the street from the two possible persons of interest. Police said in the video he walks out of frame for about a minute and reappears on another camera “wearing a rope like a neck tie.”

And then 45 minutes later he’s still wearing the rope.

  3. Smollett got burned by trying to paint a victim fantasy story to TMZ. When they called him to discuss by phone that may be when he concocted the story of “MAGA shouting” attackers, which he didn’t mention to Chicago PD in his first talk with them.

    He probably didn’t realize that Chicago PD would hear all of the new details in the news and then call him back for clarification, at which point he couldn’t go back on the claims he made to TMZ.

    This is a case of snowflake media literally drumming up an oppression fantasy out of thin air. I am guessing that TMZ asked Smollett all sorts of leading questions and he simply fed into their “hate crime” narrative because he wanted to bask in the attention.

    • Smollett is probably stupid, too.

      • He’s Jewish so he’s probably not stupid.

      • Stupid is someone who lacks intelligence or common sense, so you never know.

      • We Mischlings are half-wits prone to having our outsized social ambitions being thwarted by modest intellectual gifts & confused self-identity.

      • He’s Jewish so he’s probably not stupid.

        He engages in unnatural risky sex, so he probably is stupid.

  4. They have 12 detectives investigating this?

    He also won’t give over his phone so the police can hear the slurs. Pretty fishy.

    • 19 people got shot (4 fatally) over the MLK weekend in Chicago; I wonder how many detectives worked on each of those cases.

    • There’s almost certainly evidence of all sorts of illegal crap in his phone. Drug deals. Maybe pictures of him boinking an underaged lad. And lots of embarrassing stuff. Not surprising that he doesn’t want the cops looking through it, even in the extremely unlikely event that his story is not total bullshit.

  5. A woman who lives in Jussie Smollett’s apartment building told cops she saw a suspicious man — whom she said looked like a “redneck” — loitering just outside the entrance to the building an hour and a half before Jussie says he was attacked.

    The woman — who asked us not to use her name — tells TMZ, she walked out of the building at 12:30 AM Tuesday to take her dogs out and saw the man near the door, pacing between the parking garage and entrance, looking agitated and smoking a cigarette. She says, “He looked out of place.” He was a white man with scruff on his face wearing a blue winter beanie, a blue zip-up sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans that were too short, exposing “thick, grey hunting socks” with camel-colored dress shoes.

    She says she noticed what looked like a rope, or a clothesline, protruding from the bottom of his sweatshirt, made of white and blue material.

    She says he was staring at another man about 300 feet away, who was standing near another entrance to the building.

    She says she got “creeped out” by the man, and after 5 minutes she retreated back into the building.

    The woman says she went to sleep and woke up at 4 AM to go to the gym, and noticed a lot of security. She says the concierge told her Jussie was attacked, and when she told him what she saw, the concierge implored her to call a detective and gave her two phone numbers. She made contact that afternoon and downloaded a detective.

    • This woman’s description sounds a bit embellished: “redneck.” What are “hunting socks” and how would a NYC-slicker know anything about that? And who notices a stranger’s socks in a very brief encounter?

  6. Some kind of gay thing. Reminds me of when Richard Quest was caught in Central Park walking around with a rope around his neck that he’d attached to his balls.
