But TMZ identified the men as Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo and said they have been charged with battery in the alleged attack on the "Empire" TV star.

Wow. I hate those white ------- that roam the late-night streets of Chicago(?!) with MAGA hats, bleach, and of course, the mandatory noose or two. Thank God they got those rednecks, especially that "Olabinjo" guy.

We're they wearing Make Nigeria Great Again hats? Maybe that's where all the confusion started.

Didn't Smollett tell police as well as the media that the assailants were white?

Watch how this is down-played by the media, with maybe the exception of Fox News.

Chicago police are taking this very slowly:

The new statement from Chicago police comes a day after a media report sparked speculation that Smollett was potentially involved in staging the attack because his character on "Empire" was being written off.

Authorities refuted that report and said they have no reason to believe Smollett's story is a hoax.

Police have not seen footage of the confrontation itself but have obtained security video showing Smollett with a rope draped around his neck.

As they should. This is a highly publicized case. They have a golden opportunity to display professionalism and competence. Also, it's critically important they get it right for justice's sake.

"As they should."

Agreed, my comment was not a criticism.

Court records show that one was charged with attempted murder in a 2011 stabbing that occurred in the 4200 block of North Ashland. That is less than a block from the home that police raided Wednesday night, and recovered personal effects including cell phones, a source said.

The one brother reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to aggravated battery and was sentenced to two years of probation and was ordered to pay a $674 fine. His attorney in that case did not respond to interview requests.

I'm outraged at stories that imply that the attack was staged or didn't happen. The Right invents stuff like that but never the Left. We are honest and tell the truth in all cases, even when painful or embarrassing. If you think this was a fake attack, you're as racist and homophobic as the perpetrators.

Not certain, but I think that was the idea.
