Police Chief Express Fury As Empire Actor Jussie Smollett Escapes 48 Years In Jail | News

Chicago’s mayor and chief police officer tore through Jussie Smollett and slammed prosecutors’ decision to drop all charges against him as a ‘whitewash of justice’ on Tuesday after the Empire actor jubilantly celebrated escaping a possible 48 year prison sentence.

Speaking at a press conference with the equally enraged Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie T. Johnson on Tuesday, Mayor Rahm Emanuel insisted repeatedly that Smollett was guilty of staging a hoax attack on January 29 and that he did it for a raise. 

He slammed Assistant State’s Attorney Joe Magats decision to drop the 16 felony charges Smollett was hit with by a grand jury, a move he said he took because Smollett is not a ‘violent threat’ to the community.
