    I guess interesting is a fair word, but this does not surprise me. Exploiting identity politics for personal gain is...fundamental.

    Duke Lacrosse, University of Virginia, Nikki Yovino, Teresa Klein, Tiffany Thompson... In all of these cases, someone (not necessarily an accuser) is using race and/or class politics for gain.

    he took a chance. look at some celebs recently whose careers are over because someone accused them of sexual misconduct or assault. this guy tried to make a career out of an accusation.

    They said he faces up to 3 years, but that he will most likely get probation.

    That's what I was lead to believe as well after listening to Up First cover this yesterday. The charge carries one- to three-years, or probation and fines. My guess is the latter.

    I'm also pretty sure he just torpedoed any chance of salvaging an acting career. At least in the near future.

    He certainly would if the Chicago PD had any say in the matter. Given the statements they've made over the last few days, they're rightfully furious.

    His sentence should be to go read what happened to emmit till in 1955 when he was falsely accused. A dangerous thing for sure

    From a police stand point, think about all the man power invested in a high profile case like this. Then think about all the murder Chicago takes and think about all the man power that was wasted chasing their on this hoax for this clown in lieu of trying to take care of legitimate murders (and lesser, but still serious crimes).

    As a police officer, I really wish there was more done to people who blatantly fabricate things and waste our time.

    I mean, he's facing real prison time. I'd say that suffices.

    (Truly) Punishing him will be viewed as homophobic and racist.

    Besides, courts are soft. He’ll have some closed up plea and do 30 hours community service which will include doing a commercial to bring light to violence against LBGTQRS

    This is ugly atm. Rahm Emanuel just gave a presser slamming the decision calling it a whitewash of justice.

    CPD stands by their investigation.

    He actually took a plea because he has to serve community service and he has to pay $100,000 for his bail to the city. He still got off light though. And his lawyer is involved in the Avenatti scam and facing charges as well.

    Trump is on this now. He went twitter-berserk demanding an investigation. This, I agree with. Just was obfuscated here me thinks.
