“Sources: Police investigating whether Smollett staged attack with help of others”. If Jussie Smollet is found to have staged the arrack on himself, should he be charged with a hate crime?

I think having him pay for the investigation is a good idea and I agreed with it below. However, I do think he needs to be charged with filing a false police report.

This was meant to instigate hatred of certain people and should not be tolerated. Nor should any other false allegation.

Just a crime.
The notion of hate crime is nonsense

Agreed. But an example needs to be made to deter copycats. He must be charged.

Never heard of him before this potential crime/hoax.

Yes to an extent, since a hate crime (also known as a bias-motivated crime or bias crime) is a prejudice-motivated crime which occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her membership (or perceived membership) in a certain social group or race.

Trump supporters can be considered a social group and if he is found guilty of staging the attack, he has committed a hate crime where he was prejudice towards this certain group of people because of their beliefs.. However, in today’s day and age especially in Chicago, they will probably not charge him with a hate crime due to his race and sexual orientation and since he did not harm my individuals, but he most likely will see up to a few years in prison for falsely reporting an incident and obstruction of justice to an extent. This is all if he staged it though.

Chicago police are currently debunking reports of a hoax.

If this was staged, I would be OK with him having to pay for the investigation.

I'd support that too but I think he should be charged with making a false report as well.

No but only because hate crimes are bullshit in the first place
