"“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,” the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office stated in an email."
Yep... Not "he didn't do it" but "we feel he's already paid enough"... smh...

His lawyer sure isn't playing it out that way though:
“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgement,” spokeswoman Anne Kavanaugh stated in an email.
“Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.
“Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

There needs to be an investigation by the DOJ into the state attorney Kim Fox. This has the making of back room deal that got this thing to go away. I mean c'mon, they have video evidence of the two Nigerian brother buying all this stuff.

Just watched his and his lawyers statements. Lawyer said yes the brothers attacked him, then Jussie said he still had no part of any of it and would never do anything like that. Riiiiiiiiiight.
No one believes anything coming out of their mouths.

Hopefully, the feds won't go so lightly. It's interesting watching the police superintendent and mayor-two black guys pissed that another black guy is showing his "privilege".

supposedly his attorney's threatened to bring up the entire past of Chicago police misconduct into the trial and drag it out, and the prosecutor quickly came to a plea deal

If you are opposed to these charges being dropped, then you are a member of the raaayyysis alt.right.
I'm just like "whatever" on the charges being dropped. Doesn't effect my life either way. But..the thing that gets me is that his charges can be dropped and then he stands in front of the cameras still denying he had any part in it. Then his family puts out a statement saying that he's been vindicated and they look forward to pursuing the real perpetrators. So now to the common twitter idiot, it sounds like this was a legit hate crime afterall and the perpetrators are still running lose. When in fact, his lawyer stood in front of the cameras and said the Nigerian brothers were the attackers.

THIS. The statement of the court said absolutely nothing clearing him of wrong doing but you KNEW that's what he/his lawyer/supporters were going to do. They didn't say his innocent, they said looking at the accusations what his contributed in the past and current foregoing his bond money to the dept that everything is "even"...

And yet our prisons are FULL of unfortunates, rotting in prison for extended/lengthy sentences for simple drug possession.





Townie must be livid. :runaway:
