Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Regarding Jussie Smollett’s Dropped Charges: “This is a whitewash of justice.”

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office called the development in the Jussie Smollett case “a just disposition and appropriate resolution to this case,” but Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson says he backs his detectives, and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called the action a whitewash of justice. Emanuel said Jussie Smollett was “let off scot free, with no sense of accountability for the moral and ethical wrong of his actions. He also said the $10,000 bond forfeiture doesn’t even come close to covering the costs associated with the investigation.

There was no clear message from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office what prompted the dropped charges.
