Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx Puts Out Op-Ed Regarding Jussie Smollett Case

Actor Jussie Smollett Appears Outside Of Court After It Was Announced That All Charges Have Been Dropped Against Him

The Jussie Smollett case made national headlines after charges against the Empire actor were dropped in the alleged racist and homophobic attack he suffered. Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx penned an op-ed that essentially pointed to the Chicago Police Department’s mishandling of the case.

From the Chicago Tribune:

In her letter to the newspaper, Foxx also said she welcomed an independent investigation into the surprise decision Tuesday to drop all 16 felony charges against Smollett, who was charged last month with hiring two acquaintances to stage a racist and homophobic attack on him in order to advance his career.

“Since it seems politically expedient right now to question my motives and actions, and those of my office, let me state publicly and clearly that I welcome an outside, nonpolitical review of how we handled this matter,” Foxx wrote. “I am not perfect, nor is any other prosecutor out there, but ensuring that I and my office have our community’s trust is paramount.”

For the first time, Foxx indicated that the case against Smollett — which has brought worldwide scrutiny to the Cook County criminal justice system — was not as strong as some might have thought.

Jussie Smollett didn’t waste time getting back into the limelight after his alleged attack in Chicago by a reported pair of men who shouted racist and homophobic slurs. During a concert in Los Angeles, Smollett took to the stage ahead of his performance and eloquently stated that he “couldn’t let those motherf*ckers” win.

TMZ reports:

Jussie performed in WeHo at the famed Troubadour in front of a packed audience of 400 and generally addressed the incident in Chicago. He told the crowd he’s okay and still healing.

He asked for solidarity and the crowd was with him, as he said, “I’m going to stand strong with y’all.”

At the end of the show, Jussie lit up the stage with a call to action about being black, being gay and being proud. The crowd went absolutely wild.

Chicago police are still investigating the attack and Smollett says he is cooperating with the authorities in order to bring his attackers to justice.
