Wrinkle in time of Jussie Smollett

Now to protecting two witnesses:

Law enforcement sources connected to the investigation tell TMZ, the 2 brothers who were arrested and then released are staying somewhere around the Loop in downtown Chicago under the watchful eye of police so no one gets to them. We’re told cops especially want to make sure Jussie does not contact the brothers.

Fearing Jussie will tamper? Apparently.

By the way, may I add that if it was a hoax, we have to give F’s to whoever devised it. Ridiculous on its face. As ‘hood resident told NY Post,

“I don’t believe it happened the way he said it did,” said Agin Muhammad, who lives in the same swank high-rise near the Navy Pier as Smollett.

“I’ve been in this neighborhood five years. I don’t believe it, not around here … Half the people are gay and the other half are black.”

Exaggerating for effect probably. Yet and still . . .

Moreover,

A patron at Lizzie McNeill’s Irish Pub, about a block from the scene of the alleged Jan. 29 incident, said Smollett’s story “doesn’t really make sense.”

“It’s a lie, because Chicago is the most liberal city around,” said the man, who wouldn’t give his name. “They have cameras everywhere … Why can’t they find the attack?”

In sum, the hoax-creator needs or would need a new writer. Not that there haven’t been dumber plots on b-level shows. Or a-level, for that matter.  . . .
