Charges Dropped Against Smollett

Once again, money and power triumph over justice.

Cook County State’s Attorney has dropped the charges against actor Jussie Smollett.

Here’s what prosecutors said in a statement:

“After reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including Mr. Smollett’s volunteer service in the community and agreement to forfeit his bond to the City of Chicago, we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.”

So if I volunteer a bit and agree to pay the city a bunch of money, they will drop charges against me? How many other crooks get this kind of pass?

Chicago is being what Chicago is.

    So you’d rather Chicago spend a bunch of taxpayer dollars and redirect prosecutorial resources from violent crime to dick around with a celebrity with a mental problem who staged an attack on himself? To what, send a message that you will not allow your city to be overrun by celebrities who stage attacks on themselves?

    Seriously, be a better conservative. Your take is pretty embarrassing, tbh. Jussie’s a clown who destroyed his own career, and pursuing this is a giant waste of taxpayer resources.

    Lots, everywhere, the more well-to-do ones.

    This guy was willing to put to innocent Trump supporters away for a long time for his greedy fraud!

    This is the most absurd plea deal ever, and liberals should be denouncing this!

    Whenever I hear about any “hate crime” fitting the insane liberal narrative, I am going to doubt it as a greedy liberal hoax now everytime.

    Soros has to be pleased with the ROI on his $408,000 investment in Kim Foxx. Score another win for the social justice warriors. Control prosecutorial discretion and you own he criminal justice system. No need for a judge or jury if the prosecutors become the sole arbiters of social justice.
