Doesn't seem like it based on the interviews/comments I've seen reported, no.

So, unfortunately for the new Ms. Mayor - she's stuck dealing with this debacle.

I haven't really followed her at all, but wonder if she has already made any statements on the topic, or the police, for that matter.
No clue. I had never heard of her before the election results were announced. I tend to ignore mayoral races that aren't in my immediate vicinity.

The new "American Dream" is winning settlement or becoming famous for doing nothing.

True, forgot about pulse pay... "have a pulse? you can get paid!"
Our great grandparents must be rolling in their graves.

Imagine one of these iron workers below would've said "are those peanuts!? i am allergic" or "dont use that pronoun when addressing me!"... I suspect they would have been shoved off the i-beam.

Another conflict of interest pops up in Kim Foxx's handling of Jussie Smollett case

https://www.foxnews.com/us/another-c...-smollett-case

and...Foxx has publicly said she'd welcome an independent probe into her office's decision to dismiss a 16-count indictment against Smollett, who is accused of staging a hate crime on himself.

However, she filed a motion on Tuesday opposing the call for a special prosecutor made by O'Brien. Her office filed two other motions that day as well. One seeks to quash subpoenas for Foxx and her top assistant Joseph Magats and prevent O'Brien from requesting additional subpoenas. The other seeks the court's permission to allow Foxx's office and the county inspector general access to records that were sealed at the same hearing where prosecutors dropped all charges against Smollet.

I also heard this morning that Jussie's attorneys are fighting to keep him from appearing. I guess he was also subpoenaed.

I doubt that will ever happen. Unfortunately, I think the Gay 2Pac got off and nothing will happen to him. We can only hope the people who got him off get prosecuted now. I hate this but I think nothing will happen.

In his defense, his attorney isn't hard to look at! (See what I did there?)

After the seal was lifted, Foxx’s office said it was reviewing its records and expected to release more documents by June 3.

Excellent. I look forward to this. The most ironic thing would be is if this became a "lifetime" movie or similar and he stars in it.

The shit he tried to pull pales in comparison to the shit the prosecutor pulled.
