oh
so our justice system is to have a sliding scale for fines based on what you can afford?
who are you AOC?


I never said that. What I did say that the fine, to him, is a joke. Since he makes 7 figures annually, a $10,000.00 fine is a joke to him, and similar to an everyday person being charged $10.00. Where did I advocate anything like changing the laws?

Really, get a grip on your paranoia dude. You are the one that lead off with "10k is no joke". To you it's no joke, but to someone making 7+ figures, yes, it is a joke.

America should hit him where it counts, the pocketbook. There should be a boycott called publicly, to not watch or participate in anything Jussie Smollett is attached to in the TV and Motion Picture industry. If his career isn't over already it certainly could be.

This whole case stinks real bad , dont see how they can let a guy walk who staged a hate crime.

They shoulda had this guy prosecuted to the full extend of the law.

the US government locks people up for way less , how can they talk this right ?

So, these charges were dropped by the "Police". Everyone thinks this guy is getting away with what he did. The crimes that he perpetrated were on a Federal level though. Is it not reasonable to assume that the FBI may now get involved? I'm having a hard time believing that this guy is just going to walk. You know how Trump is, he is silent about all of his moves and never gives his plans away. They just drop like bombs. Maybe this will be another case of that.

Its very odd..his layer is now shifting the blame onto the supposed fake attackers. Which makes no sense.

Chicago police say Jussie drove the two brothers to the ACE hardware for ski-masks and lynching ropes.

it just occurred to me that Smollet and his phony rumble schemes & Perjury...

And the Team of Bad Actors led by HRC & BHO and their phoney Russia Collusion/ Fictional 'Dossier' on Trump



are 2 similar and must both be disregarded as serious 'events'....

It is As IF these Bad Actors can pull off illegal and unsavory Acts of Harm to other People's Rights ....
But, Smile at the Victims/Judges/Police and Say :
I had my fingers crossed behind my back so IT doesn't count ...Like in Elementary School in 2nd Grade


Jeeze, these lefties/progressives/socialist democrats are infantile at best ... in their self made Fantasy Worlds

He is GOING TO WALK, because, someone at a much higher level is involved in this. What else could it be? The way this went down with them closing the case is highly suspicious.

Tonight, prosecutor Kim Foxx (who dropped the 16 charges) just told local Chicago TV that she ran on Justice Reform, and was elected to implement a reform of the justice system. Apparently dropping the 16 charges against Jussie is part of her reform plan.

I don't know about other parts of the country, but Chicago politicians really do think the population is stupid. They've been recorded saying so. Obama's chief advisor was recorded saying this on two occasions.

So his loss of his bond is of no consequence?
That is an interesting stance.

If he can "afford it or not" should have no bearing n the application of the law.

What he did is crappy.
People claiming he walked free is also crappy.
At least argue that he paid his way out.

Hating him because he is well off is disgusting.

I wonder if KIM FOXX can be prosecuted, or removed from office?

The District Attorneys Association is strongly condemning Kim Foxx's actions..


The National District Attorneys Association, which claims to represent roughly 2,700 prosecutors’ offices around the country, heavily criticized Foxx in a statement to Fox News.

“First, when a chief prosecutor recuses him or herself, the recusal must apply to the entire office, not just the elected or appointed prosecutor. This is consistent with best practices for prosecutors’ offices around the country,” the statement began.

It added, “Second, prosecutors should not take advice from politically connected friends of the accused. Each case should be approached with the goal of justice for victims while protecting the rights of the defendant.

Third, when a prosecutor seeks to resolve a case through diversion or some other alternative to prosecution, it should be done so with an acknowledgement of culpability on the part of the defendant. A case with the consequential effects of Mr. Smollett’s should not be resolved without a finding of guilt or innocence.”

The statement concluded: “Fourth, expunging Mr. Smollett’s record at this immediate stage is counter to transparency. Law enforcement will now not be able to acknowledge that Mr. Smollett was indicted and charged with these horrible crimes and the full record of what occurred will be forever hidden from public view.

Finally, we believe strongly that hate crimes should be prosecuted vigorously but the burden of proof should not be artificially increased due to the misguided decisions of others.”

This rambling statement from Kamala Devi Harris about Jussie Smollett today, proves she is NOT Presidential leadership material.

But it's "consistent with alternative prosecution". WTF? Our government is so corrupt. If I ever get in trouble I'm asking Judge Wapner for the "alternative prosecution plan".

It seems as though the Cook County prosecutors office is looking for a leg to stand on with their decision:


An internal email from the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx, obtained by Fox News on Wednesday, asked assistant state's attorneys to dig for any examples to bolster Foxx’s claim that the dropped charges in the Jussie Smollett case weren’t as uncommon or shocking as they seemed.

The email read in part, “We are looking for examples of cases, felony preferable, where we, in (exercising) our discretion, have entered into verbal agreements with defense attorneys to dismiss charges against an offender if certain conditions were met...”


Smollett damage control seen in internal email from Foxx's office as she defends 'alternative prosecution model'

I would think they would have had examples at the ready in order to justify the decision they took in this case but based upon the email referenced above, they don't have any precedent upon which to base their decision.
