Jussie cleared. How?



Jussie cleared Twitter reacts

All 16 charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped by prosecutors because the most he would have received through prosecution was community service, which he has allegedly already performed.

According to NBC:

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office said Tuesday that after reviewing the case, Smollett’s volunteer service and his willingness to turn his bond over to the city, “we believe this outcome is a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case.”

His family celebrated the decision, saying in a statement that “truth has prevailed and he has been vindicated.”

Conservatives on Twitter haven’t been pleased by this result.

There are a few takeaways in this story. First, the whole story may never be known now. Chicago police were so confident in their case, this seemed like a slam dunk, yet the prosecution buckled. What happened? Did the evidence dry up? Was it misinterpreted? Or was there some deal-making on the backend? Since this last scenario seems like the most reasonable, getting to the truth on this case is pretty much never going to happen.

What does this say about rich people doing crimes versus poor people doing the same? I’m unaware of a precedent to this exact type of hoax, but one has to believe if a similar series of crimes were committed by someone without the money or influence to get out, they’d be in jail.

Whatever happened, it’s such a disgusting display of incompetence, privilege, or both that it has to make anyone who serves a minute in jail for lesser crimes scratch their collective heads.
