Those who believe in justice are outraged now that 16 counts of disorderly conduct against actor Jussie Smollett for hoaxing a hate crime have been inexplicably DROPPED by Chicago prosecutors.
Per Fox News, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Emanuel said they were not only furious with the outcome of Tuesday’s surprise hearing but also blindsided by the decision itself, with the officials only learning Smollett wouldn’t face charges for allegedly faking a hate crime at the same time the public found out.
“Where is the accountability in the system? You cannot have – because of a person’s position – one set of rules applies to them and another set of rules apply to everyone else,” Emanuel said. “Our officers did hard work day in and day out, countless hours working to unwind what actually happened that night. The city saw its reputation dragged through the mud…It’s not just the officers’ work, but the work of the grand jury that made a decision based on only a sliver of the evidence [presented]. Because of the judge’s decision, none of that evidence will ever be made public.”
We at OurStand.org agree with Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson 100% and demand an investigation into Kim Foxx and the entire Cook County Attorney’s office for clearing Jussie Smollett.
the wrongs must be made right no one is above the law.
