Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel: Letting Smollett Off the Hook Sends a Message That There Is No Accountability in the System; Calls it a "Whitewash;" Says "How Dare He" as Smollett Continues Attacking Police

The Chicago police are united in condemning this whitewash as well.

Eddie Johnson, the CPD Superintendent (which I think is the top cop), notes that Smollett claimed he wanted a trial so that the truth would come out, but then did his dirty deal in a closed court to hide in "secrecy."

Emmanuel stresses the high cost Chicago taxpayers paid to investigate this hoax. He then notes that the hate crimes passed after Matthew Shepherd's death are damaged by this hoax, and that people will tend to disbelieve them. "And he did this all in the name of self-promotion."

"This is a whitewash of justice. A grand jury could not have been clearer.... Where is the accountability in the system? You cannot have, because of a person's position, one set of rules apply to them, and another set of rules apply to everyone else."

He compares Smollett's sneaky way out of justice to rich people bribing to get their kids into universities through the "side-door."

"This sends a clear message that if you're in a position of power and influence, you'll be treated one way, and other people will be treated another way. There is no accountability in the system."

Asked if Kim Foxx owes the police an apology, Eddie Johnson deflects and blames Smollett.

Rahm Emanuel suggests corruption: "From top to bottom, this is not on the level."

A friend says: This guy's probably going to get his raise after all.



Update: Emanuel won't defend Kim Foxx from charges that this decision was "politically motivated." Only says you'd have to ask her, and that the grand jury was pretty emphatic about what happened on this night.

Meanwhile, the cucks are all defending the non-prosecution (often misstating the facts, smugly wrong as usual) and even attacking Rahm Emanuel for pointing out the obvious:
