Ok buddy, let me get this straight... you want Italy to take in more refugees from your home country/region, and your plan to get this to happen is to act like an insane person?

I'm sure Italy is like, "You know, we really should listen to the guy kidnapping children and setting our public transportation on fire. He seems to have some valid and well-reasoned points. We need more people like THAT around here." :rolleyes:

Italy is getting more nationalistic than the US & UK. I suspect this guy's actions have only hurt his cause.

As the proud ancestor of a man who risked his life for italy in the first world war. I am ashamed of Italy today, up until recently I was considering applying for Italian citizenship thanks to my great grandfather but no longer.

🤨 Why? What specifically are you ashamed of? As nationalistic as they are becoming, I look at them with envy.

Likewise, I’ve generally been pretty proud of one of my European ancestral homelands, Poland, for standing up to the EU at times and choosing reason oftentimes over virtue signaling. The (other) Germans, not so much...

the corruption in the places like tome is rampant. as told by a taxi driver there. the government cut the pay of the garbage men and the garbage men decided to protest by only picking up the percentage of the garbage that their pay was cut by.
Don't get me wrong I am proud of parts of my heritage (like the fact my great grandfather fought in some of the harshest terrain of the great war) and other things, though not my great grandfathers socialist background. I actually am considering getting dual citizenship thanks to him. though I believe then I cant join the US Military. Which is what I am aiming for out of College

My most generous take is that all the media hoopla tainted the well and they couldn't make a solid case with all the leaks/etc. They decided the $10,000 fine and maybe community service was enough penance for the crime and everyone involved just wanted to be done with this.

It will be interesting to see if Trumps Fed decides to do anything about it or not.

This does seem to be typical rich people treatment though, rich and 'famous' do not have to follow regular laws. Look at Lindsay Lohan or any of the other stars who got off super easy.

It's low interest, but MSM doesn't care. They tell ONLY the story they want us to know. If they switch gears and drop one for the other, there's not much we can do about it.
I suppose. But they are also interested in getting ratings. I see people tuning out after a day or so, unless something else happens.

It's not over yet.

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/top-chicago-prosecutor-taking-heat-dropping-charges-against-empire-actor-n987701

A Chicago police union, the Fraternal Order of Police, has now asked the Department of Justice to investigate Foxx’s role in the decision to not prosecute Smollett.
“The FOP is outraged by the decision to drop charges against Smollett, but not surprised,” the union said in an emailed statement to NBC News. “Since Kimberly Foxx has taken office, she has transformed the prosecutor’s office to a political arm of the anti-police movement. We renew our call for a federal investigation of her role in this case and expect the media to conduct a thorough investigation.”

Everybody's got it all wrong. He really WAS attacked by rabid white Trumpsters while walking in the middle of the night through sub-zero temperatures to get a sandwich. Yes. This. Happened. The Chicago Police THOUGHT this was a hoax. They thought they had a slam dunk case against this innocent victim and have rested on their laurels long enough for these thugs to get away. You know, to the place all criminals get away to. Now they're hanging out with Nicole Brown Simpson's real killer and the figure in the grassy knoll. The racist cops won't investigate this any further. They are gonna prove their bitter hatred for my man Jussie by not putting any effort into finding them.
