    If the producers and network shut down the Empire cash cow to the economy of Chicago what would be the economic cost to Chicago? These productions pour a lot of "Hollywood" $ into the economy of the City. These days $ means Justice.

    I would be SO mad if I was a person in Chicago accused of a crime without a spare $10K. How can they defend this mess?

    I didn't watch Jussie's speech. While proclaiming his innocence did he speak of concerns about his 2 attackers remaining on the loose?

    Me too.

    What's the difference between this and a bribe?

    Jussie is such a coward.

    Jussie and his relatives really, really wanted the investigation to be turned over to the FBI, considering it to be a huge victory. They seem to have political connections/friends in high places.

    Not many of us can give the former chief of staff to Michelle Obama a jingle and make demands about an ongoing criminal case, and have those demands met the same day.

    Quotes from the article:

    Foxx (the state’s attorney)reached out to Johnson after Tina Tchen, former chief of staff to First Lady Michelle Obama, emailed Foxx saying the actor’s family had unspecified “concerns about the investigation.”

    A relative (of Jussie) later exchanged texts with Foxx.

    [...]

    I spoke to the Superintendent Johnson,” Foxx emailed Tchen back on Feb. 1. “I convinced him to Reach out to FBI to ask that they take over the investigation.”

    [...]

    The same day, Foxx texted with Smollett’s relative, whose name was blacked out in copies released by her office.

    “Spoke to the superintendent earlier, he made the ask,” Foxx wrote. “Trying to figure out logistics. I’ll keep you posted.”

    “Omg this would be a huge victory,” the relative replied.

    “I make no guarantees, but I’m trying,” Foxx wrote back.”

    That’s tge way things work. Remember the DuPont heir who molested his three year old and was deemed too rich to go to jail? Or affluenza Ethan Couch? And on and on.

    Best to be rich in this world

    If you are well connected; if you have means, you don’t play by the same rules as everyone else.

    That’s the lesson here.

    Nothing is being expunged, per se, because the case has ceased to exist. ... There’s nothing left to wipe from Jussie’s record.

    It’s so puzzling! o_O

    Next it will be the college scandal parents. Probably not the coaches, though.
