Smollett skates on all charges

Not surprisingly, Jussie Smollet skated on all 16 charges placed against him by Cook County, IL today. The shocking part was that he was charged in the first place which makes this drama extra confusing and rather expedient, having only been charged a month ago and in addition to ties with the district attorney. The lawyer quotes from both sides in the CBS article are mind numbing. Where can the rest of us lineup for legal protection and state service like this? $10,000 in exchange for an exoneration of 16 felonies? Thousands of police hours were wasted costing the city millions and $10,000 and community service served foots the bill? And he retains the ability to keep perpetuating the lie he was the hate crime victim the entire time mistreated by racist cops! Blue State justice at its best.
