Do you think people that lie about hate crimes should be sent to prison?
I.e. Jussie Smollett and Bubba Wallace.

No, but if it was on purpose, as in Smollett's case, they should pay a stiff fine to repay what the government invested in a deliberate hoax report.
As to Bubba, it is not at all clear... at least right now... he realized the rope was already there. Rather, in these heightened racial sensitivities, he jumped to the immediate conclusion it was aimed at him. If further information comes out that he was involved in some sort of hoax, then yes, he should be fined for the FBI's trouble as well. But I'm willing to give him the benefit of a doubt... for now.

Filing a false police report is a crime.

Bubba Wallace didn't "lie" about anything, idiot.
He wasn't the person who reported it, and he actually didn't even know about it until NASCAR officials told him.
