Judge Appoints Special Prosecutor to Investigate Kim Foxx’s Handling of Smollett Case

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/jud ... lett-case/

A Chicago judge appointed a special prosecutor on Friday to investigate Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx’s handling of the investigation into Jussie Smollett’s alleged hoax hate crime.

Judge Michael Toomin said that Foxx’s unorthodox decision to drop all charges against Smollett absent an admission of guilt was within her authority, but suggested that her decision to hand the case over to her top deputy was improper.

The special prosecutor may end up bringing charges against Smollett in connection with the staged hate crime, Toomin said.

Good, the only way to prevent this in the future as well as reduce any further chance of questionable impartiality on the DA’s part is for there to be a full investigation. Crimes were committed, refusing to prosecute smells rotten.

Of course with that amount of evidence it was open and shut but because he was an actor and far left and in Chicago he gets to skate. I sure hope something comes from this. He should answer for what he did.

The other thread about prosecutorial misconduct in MS resulting in SCOTUS overturning a death sentence is exactly the same - there everyone looked the other way while the DA openly violated the law....and nobody cared because the accused was black. Here a guy staged a hate crime, and nobody wanted to prosecute because it shamed the credibility of black public officials. In both cases, the involved DA staff should at the very LEAST be disbarred. Says a lot about the sorry state of public integrity in both IL and MS.

Exactly.. the system has to make sure that every crime has to be properly investigated, and if the evidence supports it, indictments have to follow. No "A" of any kind should be able to interfere.

Jussie has so many new and creative ways to malign and discredit the special prosecutor to choose from, straight from the president's mouth

Having been born on the West Side of Chicago and raised in the Chicago-land area my first though when this happened was this. Who the hell is Jesse Smollett? When I found out my next thought was the only reason this is getting any attention is because he's a celebrity. If it had been an average person it probably would not have seen the light of day. When I found out it was all a farce I was tad bit ticked off. The resources that went into this investigation would have been better spent on the backlog of unsolved murders in the City of Chicago.

Which brings up this subject. People in MAWA country love to talk about the murder rate in Chicago. However this whole thread shows they really don't care about it. Now if they feel wronged by some celebrity look out! Those long memories come out of the woodwork.
