Jussie Smollett Indicted!

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but Jussie Smollett has been indicted in Chicago by special prosecutor Dan Webb on Tuesday for allegedly staging the hate crime attack in 2019. Special prosecutor Dan Webb says Kim Foxx’s office hasn’t been able to provide any evidence that the Jussie Smollett prosecution was handled the same way as similar cases.

https://www.fox32chicago.com/news/ju...go-source-says

The Chicago Sun-Times reports attorneys for Smollett were told that they should expect their client to be indicted and that investigators have even gone to California to interview people connected to Smollett. He is facing six charges for filing a false police report and is scheduled to be arraigned in court on February 24.

As Chicago police investigated his claim, they found discrepancies and interviewed two brothers who claimed Smollett paid them to help stage the attack. Smollett was then charged with filing a false report, but State's Attorney for Cook County Kim Foxx's office, after she recused herself from the case, dropped all charges against him.

I love the spin his team is giving it now. "It is more about politics than justice." It was about politics from day one when he decided to fake a hate crime and blame it on a stereotype of a certain political group ONLY to advance his own career. While unlikely he will get jail time I do hope he serves some time and pays back every dime spent on his investigation in addition to some sort of retribution/fine on top of it all. His entitled, privileged hollywood self needs to be made an example of in the times of "cancel culture", it is time the sword cut both ways.

They always go silent, even after the hoax is exposed. You hear it on national news but you only get a minor blip of it being a hoax after investigation.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/hate-cr...nk-11561503352

The bias and double-standard was tremendously apparent when a van drives through a GOP registration booth and no coverage at all on the big media outlets.
If it was the other way around. "Hate on the rise!" "This is DT's America!"

I was just as enraged as you were when the case against him was dropped. This story didn't make sense from the start and the outcome was outrageous (dropping the case).

Another hat tip I give to the tweeter in charge. He has pointed the sun directly onto the MSM and their horrific job of being about actual news.

Trump booth rammed by nut in a van...silence. Snoop doggy threatens a black female reporter for talking about 'our people'/ Kobe...silence.

Look at CNN's ratings.

Agreed. I have no problem with presumption of innocence and withholding assumption of guilt until the trial - but it was pretty obvious that the evidence was point to - at a minimum - that he should have been charged and brought in front of a judge. I believe he admitted guilt at some point and then retracted the statement when Foxx got involved - although I could be mistaken.

Honestly - I am less concerned about him getting punished and more hoping that the politicians surrounding him that ignored the evidence and got him off get punished.

Dig into what the judge, who asked for the special prosecutor, had to say about Foxx and company.

Iirc. "She created a fictitious void to avoid the law"
Paraphrased.

Don't forget about the Obama fingerprints on all of this.

I think Jussie and Foxx should be locked up. Screw the slap on the wrist shit. They intentionally tried to cover this up.

The cover up is always worse than the crime, but lets not forget what this asshat tried to do and the impact that lie could've had.
