Jussie Smollett has been given national, if not international attention since he filed a police report alleging a hate crime perpetrated against him - a gay black man. He alleged that he went out for a sandwich on a sub-zero freezing night in Chicago when he was accosted by two white men wearing MAGA hats. Mr. Smollett fended them off while retaining possession of his sandwich all the while chatting on his cell phone. The offenders were somehow able to douse Mr. Smollett with bleach and fashion a noose around his neck. We all know this story.
Police investigated and found that Mr. Smollett had concocted the entire event with the help of two black friends. The friends confessed. Police recovered video of the the two friends buying the red MAGA caps and other supplies at a convenience store. Chicago police charged Mr. Smollett with multiple felonies.
Interesting to note that Mr. Smollett was allowed to turn himself in to police. Yet, a few months ago, President Trump associate Roger Stone was indicted for lying and was subsequently raided at 6AM by some 20 or so members of SWAT with CNN on site to film the action.
Upon submitting the case to the county Prosecutor Kim Foxx, the case was immediately dropped, sealed, and records expunged. Charges dropped. Case closed.
But wait a second.
If Prosecutor Foxx is correct, then Mr. Smollett did not stage this horrific hate crime. Therefore, there are two white guys running around in MAGA hats randomly attacking black folks and simulating a lynching. Why in today’s environment is the city of Chicago and the FBI allowing two people to get away with this crime? There can be no tolerance for hate crimes in America. Why did the Prosecutor drop this case?
Sure, Mr. Smollett is a personal friend of the Obamas.
Sure, the Obamas intervened on Mr. Smollett’s behalf.
Sure, Mr. Smollett is a gay black man.
Sure, the Chicago Prosecutor is a black woman.
Sure, Prosecutor Foxx would never let an actual hate crime against a gay black man to go unpunished, un-investigated, and never spoken of again.
Yet, Prosecutor Foxx closed the case.
But I thought a crime was committed here? Emmett Till was a black man in Mississippi who was accused of unwanted sexual advances toward a white woman some 70 years ago. Mr. Till was beaten and hanged for the accusation. The accusation was of course false. False accusations lead to terrible miscarriages of justice. My recent article on Emmett Till here: http://bmfinvest.blogspot.com/2019/02/.
So, if Mr. Smollett is innocent, then two people are guilty of assault and a hate crime. Yet, the Chicago Prosecutor refuses to press the case. Is she racist?
All this leaves us with one conclusion. That is, Prosecutor Foxx has given us proof that in fact Jussie Smollett is guilty himself of staging a hate crime with the intent of fomenting a race war in America. Like all criminals, Mr. Smollett will live with his guilt the rest of his life. We all know the truth - thanks to Prosecutor Foxx.
Justice in America has died and now lies in a grave next to Liberty and Equality.
