range and confusing earlier today, even CNN was confused because, although they are claiming all charges are dropped, just fill that still had to forfeit ten thousand dollars and they cited him doing community service as a reason for dropping the charges. So they were still punitive action taken against him, which would kind of imply some kind of guilt.

Yes, news charges dropped against Jussie, Smollett attorneys, say all criminal charges against empire actor, Jussie Smollett have been dropped and his record has been wiped clean. His attorney said Tuesday in a statement,
a judge also granted a motion to seal the case. According to CBS Chicago, the Cook County States attorneys office called the development, a just disposition, an appropriate resolution to this case, although it wasn't clear what prompted the move to drop the charges less than two weeks ago, Smallett pleaded not
the two sixteen counts of disorderly conduct for allegedly lying to police, about a hate crime, small, let has insisted he is innocent and said Tuesday. He has been truthful and consistent since the beginning. The state
His office said, after reviewing all of the facts and circumstances of the case, including mister small. It's volunteer service in the community and agreements to forfeit his bond to the city of Chicago. We believe this outcome is a just a disposition and appropriate resolution. To this case. The cook County state's attorney's office said in a statement small. I had posted ten thousand dollars bond to be released from jail after he was arrested in late February. So a lot said he had been truthful and
consistent on every single level since day one. I would not be my mother son if I was capable of one drop of what I've been accused of the story ends by saying on Tuesday Twentieth Century Fox Television and Fox Entertainment said in a statement that Jussie Smollett has always maintained his innocence, and we are gratified on his behalf that all charges against him have been dismissed, but he has not been exonerated with many questioning why he would have to forfeit his bond and white community service mattered if he was innocent. It turns out, according to at least one report New York Times. That is not the case. This may actually be an admission of guilt, Julie, Bozeman of the New York Times tweets new from Chicago Joe Mag. It's the first assistant state's attorney, who made the fun
decision to drop the charges against him. Let says in an interview we didn't exonerate him maggots, the assistant states attorney said he saw no problem with the police investigation or the evidence against small. Let the charges against Mulet were dropped in return for his agreement to do community service, he said and for forfeiting his bond to the city of Chicago the attorney added here's the thing we work to prioritize violent crime,
and the drivers of violent crime, public safety is our number one priority and I don't see just as small as a threat to public safety. We stand behind this investigation. We stand behind the decision to charge him and we stand behind the charges. In this case. The mere fact that it was disposed of in an alternative matter does not mean that there were any problems or
remedies in the case or the evidence. Conservative writer, Karmine Sabia tweets a statement from Rahm Emanuel, saying Mayor
The manual is actually siding with police against Justice Millett, I'm stunned. He did this all in the name of self promotion. This is a white wash of justice in a statement posted by breaking news live Chicago, Police Department says they have far more evidence against small, let hoax attack that they hadn't even released. We were ready to present it all x, while in a rock song,
case, but can't do to the courts decision. The Chicago Sun Times initially reported that this was a plea agreement but
change their reporting later on, when it was made clear that this was actually a dismissal of all charges. I am not a legal expert, I'm not a lawyer, but this,
One hell of a weird story: New York Times reporter putting on a statement from the state
Ernie saying no. This is essentially an agreement to forfeit money, and this is it's basically paying restitution he's not innocent, but because they dismissed the charges
Justice Mulet is saying, he's innocent he's, not because think of the alternative at a press conference following the dismissal of these charges. So, let's attorney
and that it was the Ocean Dairo Brothers, indicating they had attacked justice, Mulet kind of putting it on these guys. We have video of them in a store
I in the ski masks in the red hats. We have a statement from the smaller alluding to the fact that the two people who attacked a more white if you was being truthful the whole time. How was it that was two black men who attacked him I'm. So
Sorry, it doesn't make sense- and I gotta say this- is confusing and strange in a story from February 20th. We can see the brothers buying a ski mask on video, so they presumably did attack him or involved in some capacity.
But if just as well claiming he's innocent, then what was the motivation of the US and I rose, and will they be charged
Certainly you have to assume. If all the charges are dismissed, I'm just isn't guilty of any crime. Then there is someone who is right or actual
according to the attorney, it seems like they're, not exonerating him, but will they come out and say that he actually did this
On January, twenty ninth TMZ reported at the initial attack with an image of justice Malek, looking like he was somewhat injured. The story talks about sources directly connected to two small. Let and that's two men, both white and wearing ski masks, viciously attacked Jesse as he fought back, but they beat him badly and fractured a rib. While it seems like this part was absolutely not true. It was initially reported. They were both white coming from sources close to Jesse was TMZ wrong. Well, according to a statement made by Jesse on good Morning, America, it would seem like he's backing up that claim. On February thirteenth. U s a today around this story: Jussie Smollett Recounts, violent attack on good morning, America. I saw the rope and I started screaming one of his quotes. It feels like, if I had said it, was a Muslim or a mexican or someone black. I
I feel like the doubters would have supported me a lot more, and that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now. He said they add in the story. He also said he believes that he would have been taken more seriously. It was attackers were muslim or minorities. Well, that could only mean he's implying that they were white, as initially reported Amber Athey the daily caller tweeted some
Let's lawyer said today that the two nigerian brothers were the ones who attacked him. Smallett originally claimed the two people who attacked him are white, astonishing privilege for small let to get out of these charges. I would have to personally conclude small light is lying and he's guilty, and this is Essentia Lee some kind of plea deal as I mentioned Chicago Sun Times, initially called it a plea deal but then backed away from that reporting. But now we have the statement from the state's attorney that this was him effectively paying his restitution and because I had already done community service, they were done. The idea of being spread is essentially that it would have been a waste of resources to pursue this case, because even if he was convicted, they were going to give him community service so because he already.
They were gonna, say fine, give up your bond and we'll move forward, but there is still some more important for nation federal charges and a federal investigation rob elegance of ABC seven tweets. What is also noteworthy about this news conference with Chicago police was that Johnson also said small. It was responsible for the threat letter sent to Fox studios in Chicago. That's an f b, I case, still ongoing. It is entirely possible. That's Malek receives a federal indictment over the letter. He said to himself so maybe he's not out of the woods yet, but more people are bringing up SH.
The circumstances around this whole issue. The police are furious. The mayor has said it's a white wash of justice. Why were the charges dropped in the way they work? Now again, we've heard the explanation. It was just simply this way and it's not a pry
already, but there is some other news from the past two weeks on March 14th.

Tauriel, but we have a weird story on our hands. How is it that the mayor and the police are outraged have more evidence, but this is all being dismissed. How was it that it was only a few weeks ago sixteen felony indictments came down on Justice Mulet. Naturally, many people on the right are saying. This is the privilege of being progressive. You won't face penance, you won't
any justice or retribution for your bad axe that they genuinely believe he did this. I gotta say if the state's attorney's assistant attorney is going to say that this is some kind of restitution. It sounds to me like. We have confirmation that small, let did it he's guilty they're acting like he isn't because they got the charges dismissed. But let's go back to the statement from Joe maggots who says that they didn't exonerate him. You know it always feels like the privileged elites, the wealthy they get away with whatever they want.
There are a lot of people who want to claim that it's race based White and the based and I'm gonna have to say when you look at the story, at least in my opinion, it's class face. If you
are super wealthy, celebrity you,
get away with a crime, even when the mayor himself calls it a whitewash of justice, but we'll see what happens. The FBI investigation is apparently
still ongoing? So let me let you in the comments below will keep the conversation going. You can follow me on mines at TIM Cast, stay tuned,
