The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office will not be prosecuting Jussie Smollett, who was previously accused of faking an anti-black, anti-gay hate crime in Chicago in order to drum up publicity for his role on the TV drama “Empire,” Fox News has learned.
Chiraq was never going to throw the book at a gay black, it’s run by gay blacks. But dropping the entire thing by the prosecutors is what you would expect in Uganda or some other shithole banana republic. They aren’t even keeping up appearances anymore. They could have at least squeezed this dude for 200 hours of community service and 6 months probation at least to make it look like it wasn’t entirely rigged. Nope. We live in clown world now.
Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx asked Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson to let the FBI investigate Smollett’s allegations that he was attacked by two masked men after the former chief of staff to former first lady Michelle Obama allegedly informed Foxx that Smollett’s family had concerns about the probe. YEP , THAT OBAMA ( mike ) the family that divided our nation back at it AGAIN !!!
Smollett attorneys Tina Glandian and Patricia Brown Holmes said in a statement that Smollett’s record “has been wiped clean.”
The two brothers who were interrogated by police investigating the alleged attack on Jussie Smollett purchased the rope that was found around the “Empire” actor’s neck, sources told ABC News Saturday.
Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo agreed to cooperate with authorities after detectives confronted them with evidence that they bought the rope – allegedly used in an attack that Smollett described to police as laced with racial and homophobic slurs – at a local hardware store, sources said.
Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, confirmed by police as those seen in surveillance images from the night of the alleged incident, were arrested on Wednesday night and interviewed by detectives in the following days.
