Chicago Police Chief did not try to hide his fury when he condemned Yussi Smollett for "disparaging" behavior if he falsely claimed to be a victim of a racist and homophobic attack.
"I just want the seven pistol guns in this city to receive so much attention," said Eddie Johnson.
It seems incredible that the Fox Empire star to blast his car and injure his city by what the police said was an effort to force his bosses to give him an upgrade. And this left his defenders struggling to say.
Johnson was extremely strong at a televised press conference, stating that he should distract valuable resources in order to investigate what was exposed as a hate crime and was hated. 1

It was fueled by a corrosive narrative that some journalists and commentators were too quick to believe that Tramp's supporters roamed the streets with a rope, looking to beat an outstanding black man.
