Rahm Emanuel, Chicago's Top Cop Slam Dropped Smollett Charges As "Whitewash Of Justice"
The State of Illinois filed a motion to dismiss all charges against Empire actor Jussie Smollett. A judge signed off on the motion which was promptly sealed.
Last month a Grand Jury indicted him on 16 counts stemming from an attack dubbed a race crime. He was charged with creating the hoax which led to the charges.
Response to the ruling, especially from law enforcement, was loud and direct. Even Rahm Emanual voiced his displeasure at what took place.
