What a sad day for blind justice in America and especially Chicago. Not since
Al Capone has something so outrageous taken place in Chicago.This
one has to be pursued with all vigor by the FBI. No sane person would have
offered this sort of deal. The prosecutors and the judge need full scrutiny to
find out what their motives were and how this played out.
Heard Alan Dershowitz say the other day something like "we should not
substitute wishful thinking for serious legal analysis".Seems
that wisdom could be applied to many situations we deal with today including
@LOU MontanaRE: "Every city has a budget and prosecuting a trump
operative and spending millions is a waste of time"...---What in
the world are you talking about?Who is the "Trump operative"
being prosecuted here?I mean I know everything is about Trump to you
guys, but what does this story have to do with Trump? I don't get it.Is Smollett now a Trump operative?I mean his whole fake
story was intended to cast aspersions at Trump (with the MAGA bologna). How
would you Assume he's a Trump operative?You saw Rahm Emanuel
was also upset that the charges were dropped. I don't think this guy has
anything to do with Trump (besides trying to play on the left's fears of
Trump and MAGA)Who's the Trump operative in this story?
Every city has a budget and prosecuting a trump operative and spending millions
is a waste of time.
With the preponderance of evidence against him, the outcome of this case follows
the O.J. Simpson case. Evidence seems to be losing its importance when issuing
a verdict. Another sad day for American justice. Celebrity overcommon
sense and indisputable evidence.
That prosecutor has some more explaining to do.
As it is Chicago, no surprise. Some of the most corrupt politics next to
Washington D.C. We have lost our way in this country regarding justice
regardless of what race is involved.
Kinda surprised that Mayor Rahm Emanuel was so incensed at this decision.Good for him.
Complete, 100% travesty of justice. I hang my head more every day in disbelief
and shame at America today. Whoever let Jussie Smollet of the hook is going to
pay for their dishonesty just like Jussie will.You can run from
justice, but you can't run forever.To my fellow conservatives
and patriots: "hang by a thread" does not mean "break". Keep
How can anyone now have a shred of confidence in our justice system after this
There needs to be an investigation into this. Sounds like some sort of
corruption...in Chicago no less, whoda ever thunk it?Let's have
a peek at some kind of justice in the country.
Celebrities can get away with almost anything I guess.
This is clearly a case of racial injustice - just the opposite of what usually
is claimed. Maybe Smollett can be Avenatti's choice for the Vice
President. . . This is truly a sad day for our country - if this travesty
friends in high places
it's not coincidental that this is happening in Chicago.
Could NOT believe this!Must have been some stings pulled....Would someone who was making up a lie that was the opposite of his have
fared this well??I think not. Apparently even some lies
and fake accusations have 'political correctness' that can get you
RE: "It's a sad day for America"...---The sad day for
America was back when he hatched and carried out this plan, to use our
prejudices and stereotypes for people he doesn't like to drive a fake
narrative (that he assumed would sound so believable that we would all just
swallow it. And he would be an instant media-hero in his circles for enduring
this fake attack.That's the sad part. It's just
compounded by the police saying, "it's OK, I guess he didn't mean
no harm", and drop the charges.What will be Extra-Sad is if he
STILL becomes a media-hero from doing this.He's still getting
media attention. And that's what he wanted. So I guess in a way he got
what he wanted (just not in the way he expected).If he's still
insisting he did nothing wrong... then I have no respect for him, and won't
be making a hero out of him.I want to hear an apology if he's
ready to admit what he did.
It's a sad day for America.
Shameful... Absolutely shameful.But predictable in the city of
Chicago... There is one set of laws for white folks and a very different one for
leftest minorities. The left wants reparations and so do I... I want
Smollett to pay for the cost involved in chasing down an anti Trump fake
accusation. The tax payers deserve itHad this guy been white or
conservative the news would be non-stop for weeks about how this country
discriminates... The sad truth is in today's world we do discriminate...
only it's an inverse discrimination.
Are we all in favor of 'unequal justice for all'?? Someone needs to
serve some jail or prison time for this fiasco. The way this has been handled
severely calls into question whether there is equal justice under the law - as
it is practiced in Chicago, at least. Surely the MSM will call for a credible
and rational explanation from the prosecutors, won't they? Won't
they? You don't think they would just ignore this and continue to focus of
the collusion thing, do you?
Now imagine if this was a White person who had perpetrated a hoax crime against
Black Americans. Would he be let off the hook because of *unrelated* community
So why would they drop the charges? Nothing has changed indicating he is
innocent of the charges.Charges being dropped does not mean you are
innocent. Also doesn't mean you are guilty. Just means now we will never
know for sure.I suspect they were dropped if he agreed to go into
mental health treatment And the DA decided adding the stigma of a conviction
wouldn't help his healing process.As long as he gets mental
help, and figures out what's real and what's fake, and doesn't go
around planning fake attacks and involving Real police and real people and real
investigations into tracking down attackers he knows are fake in the future...
we're good.I wonder why he threw the "MAGA" angle into
his fake story? Prejudice? Red meat for his target audience? I don't
know why that would be important to throw into his made up story.
