Cook County prosecutors drop charges against 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Cook County prosecutors drop charges against 'Empire' actor Jussie Smollett

In a stunning reversal, Cook County prosecutors on Tuesday dropped charges against "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett on disorderly conduct charges for allegedly staging a phony attack and claiming he was the victim of a hate crime.

There had been no clue that prosecutors planned the about-face move before the announcement. A publicist for Smollett’s attorney was the first to notify the news media Tuesday morning, issuing an alert that did not elaborate on the nature of the emergency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Somebody with a lot of juice intervened on behalf of Jussie. This sets a bad precedent that people can stage fake hate crimes and nothing will happen when they are exposed. That means there will be more fake hate crimes.
