    Ohio Supreme Court just made a decision about libel cases: https://ohionews.org/aws/ONA/pt/sd/n..._details/false

    Law minded people (i'm looking at you, Allegro/Cat Mom), what impact do you think this might have in the current political climate?

    This lawsuit is bullshit https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...center-n966701

    Still, the SPLC rubs me the wrong way. Who died and made them king of what's a hate group?

    The whole thing is pretty weird. That’s a pretty safe (and pretty VACANT at night) neighborhood. Considering the mail that Smollett received prior to this incident, it appears that someone stalking him would do this.

    There was a masked KILLER in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago who randomly murdered two innocent people within days of each other last year, and the killer is on several security videos; but there is no way the police can find this scary killer who’s unidentifiable: https://chicago.suntimes.com/news/ro...ouglass-watts/

    Re: Jussie - he also said in the GMA interview yesterday that rumors he told the police the attackers were wearing MAGA hats was false. He said he heard one of the attackers shout "this is MAGA country!" but that was the extent of it.

    At least five people (plus a shooter) are dead in a mass shooting in Aurora, IL.

    What's that? There was another shooting? Ho-hum. Don't you know the Great National Emergency is the border wall? Fuck, it's like you aren't even paying attention.

    Also (this is from a post I saw on twitter): It's really depressing that you now have to clarify which Aurora shooting you are talking about.

    Probably old news to you, but CBS Chicago is reporting that "sources" are again indicating that evidence points to Smollett orchestrating this, and that the two brothers who were arrested have already been released and are cooperating with the investigation. WTF?

    It’s hard to keep up with what’s real and what’s rumor at this point, so I stopped following all developments until the CPD provides official statements. Far too many unnamed “sources” in this story.

    Meanwhile, Cook County State's Attorney Kim Foxx has recused herself from the investigation "based upon familiarity with potential witnesses in the case"

    I don't think there is any evidence "against" him at this point. Two dudes saying he did something is just hearsay. Police would need more evidence than just two guys' accusations. The CPD asked Smollett to return for a follow-up interview re what they discussed with the two other people, but Smollett is refusing. I don't know if that's his own choice, or it's per his attorneys. He's hired some heavy hitter Chicago attorneys.

    There's been a growing outcry in the black community right now because the media and the CPD is spending so much time and effort and resources on this Smollett case, meanwhile people have been shot to death or shot and injured and the cops haven't solved these cases in YEARS and people are demanding justice.

    Emphasis mine, this has been a major point that a lot of folks have rightly taken issue with. There are inconsistencies with Smollett and this incident and the Hollywood press is also reporting on other things, but reporters hitting Twitter and the news with every rumor (the elevator video, which turned out to not be true) has muddied this up and made things worse. They need to be reporting on a lot of the other cases you mentioned and hold the police accountable to those as well.

    HUGE unanimous opinion today from SCOTUS (welcome back RBG!):

    Supreme Court says constitutional protection against excessive fines applies to state actions.

    The court ruled in favor of Tyson Timbs of Marion, Ind., who had his $42,000 Land Rover seized after he was arrested for selling a couple hundred dollars’ worth of heroin.

    He drew wide support from civil liberties organizations who want to limit civil forfeitures, which they say empower localities and law enforcement to seize property of someone suspected of a crime as a revenue stream.

    Charged with faking the assault. I can't imagine - at least, I would really, really hope - that he wouldn't be charged unless there was some pretty compelling evidence.
