Do you remember Johnny Bobbitt homeless veteran, Go Fund Me scamer? How about Jussie Smollett, celebrity actor and star of Empire? Let me show you an example of partisan politics at work. This segment of the population believes that they are or should be exempt from restrictions and standards placed on you and me.
Johnny Bobbitt, Katelyn McClure and Mark D’Amico, It was a group that was involved in the go fund me scam for homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt.
The story goes something like this, Katelyn McClure is coming home from work and she runs out of gas. She doesn’t have any gas nor does she have any money to get gas. Fake homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt notices the distressed Katelyn McClure from where he was standing
panhandling. He walked over to the spot Katelyn McClure’s car had ran out of gas. He asked her if there was anything he could do for her. Katelyn McClure was was out of gas and didn’t have her purse. So Johnny Bobbitt offered her $20 to get gas. This was out of the money he had collected for the day panhandling.
Well the story continues and Katelyn McClure is apparently so impressed with the actions of Johnny Bobbitt. She and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico started a Go Fund Me page for Johnny Bobbitt. When they established a Go Fund Me page their goal was originally $10,000. Since the story went viral they were able to raise approximately $400,000 donated from 14000 people.
Katelyn McClure and boyfriend Mark D’Amico deposited $25,000 of the proceeds into a bank account for Johnny Bobbitt. The remainder of the money that was raised, well that didn’t last very long. McClure and D’Amico spent it on vacations new cars and fancy clothing.
The story began to unwind when Johnny Bobbitt became upset. Yup, Bobbitt only received $25,000 of the proceeds. At this point he was prepared to sue Katelyn McClure and boyfriend Mark D’Amico.
And yes, at this point everything started to fall apart and the scam was discovered. Fake homeless veteran Johnny Bobbitt plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. He has signed a deal with the district attorney for five years probation. Katelyn McClure is scheduled for court on June 19th 2019.
Now we go to Jussie Smollett. Here is a well-known celebrity, stars in the series Empire, fabricated a hate crime. Not only did he fabricate a hate crime but he tried to put a spin on it. His claim that the attackers were Trump supporters.
Now because at this time nobody had realize that the entire event was fabricated by Jussie Smollett. An investigation was launched by the Chicago Police. Police investigations are not cheap. This was such a high-profile case and a hate crime. The Chicago Police Department reassigned 24 detectives detectives that were currently working active crimes. They invested more than a thousand hours, overtime not included. They interviewed over a hundred individuals. Spent hundreds of hours going through surveillance videos from 55 city pod cameras and private cameras. In conjunction with Federal authorities they served 50 search warrants and subpoenas for phone, social media and financial records.
When it was discovered that the entire crime was fabricated. Paid for by actor Jussie Smollett. The reason he gave for staging the crime. He was unhappy with the salary he was getting. He felt he deserved more. He felt that the publicity would create a demand for him as an actor. With all the evidence that was present. You would think that this would be an open and closed case. Apparently you would be correct. This case was opened and then it was closed. It happened that fast.
He was being with 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct. The case was quickly pushed through Court all 16 charges were dropped. The records for the hearing were sealed. Currently Jussie Smollett is facing no time and is in Hawaii with his buddies vacationing.
Jussie Smollett, Johnny Bobbitt you explain it to me. Nothing about this says justice. You and I both know that the amount of protection you get from the legal system is exactly relative to your earnings bracket. I think the most offensive part of this whole case is the way that Jussie Smollett continues to carry himself.
Why would the African American or gay community want Someone Like Jussie Smollett to represent them. Jussie Smollett is everything that is wrong with America today. So many people believe that they are entitled to certain privileges and ways of being treated. In fact they don’t feel entitled to certain treatment they expect it.
I only have one question. WTF RU Doing?
