Hah that judge is PISSED!

It also raised the specter that Smollett could be charged all over again.
In issuing his 21-page opinion, Toomin couldn’t resist a personal dig at Smollett’s acting chops as he made it quite clear he believes the police account of what happened early on the morning of Jan. 29 near the actor’s apartment building in the Streeterville neighborhood.


“In perhaps the most prominent display of his acting potential, Smollett conceived a fantasy that propelled him from the role of a sympathetic victim of a vicious homophobic attack to that of a charlatan who fomented a hoax the equal of any twisted television intrigue,” Toomin wrote.

Toomin concluded his ruling by writing that the case’s “unprecedented irregularities” warranted the appointment of a special prosecutor “to restore the public’s confidence in the integrity of our criminal justice system."


The next step for Toomin will be to decide who should be the special prosecutor. That choice will bring on a team of attorneys to assist in the probe. They will wield extensive power to follow the probe where it leads, including investigating “the actions of any person or office involved in all aspects of the case,” Toomin’s ruling noted. They could also file new charges against Smollett — or anyone else they reasonably believe committed a crime.

The best part about all this is how fucking stupid he is. Being an actor you would figure he would know how to spot and face a camera. So he pulled this stunt not realizing that the camera he was trying to pull this shit in front of was NOT facing his direction.

To be honest nothing about Smollett screams high intelligence. From writing a check to the brothers etc. It's like what you would expect from a badly written tv show. He can't be that stupid, oh wait he was. Most criminals are not smart people. The smart ones do not get caught.

If you scrape underneath there is definitely a political element to all of this. Which is why this must be followed through as someone tried to instigate a race war. For that alone the people directly involved must face the consequences to put off anybody else trying to achieve the same again.

Left the noose on for the cops to show up, "I just wanted somebody to see it".



If someone was just trying to hang you with a noose wouldn't the first reaction be to pull that thing off? Levels of stupidity with this case.

Bring on the investigation and throw this guy behind bars for a long time.

This is severe mental disturbance on the part of JS. You couldn't make this stuff up.

I hope the cost of paying his lawyers is hurting him financially, at least. I seriously hope they are not doing it pro bono, or that someone else is paying for it.

A Chicago judge on Friday named a special prosecutor to look into why state prosecutors abruptly dropped charges against actor Jussie Smollett that accused him of staging a racist, anti-gay attack against himself.

What a slap in the face this fiasco was to the Chicago PD. I really hope Kim Foxx goes down along with Jussie.
