All Criminal Charges Against Jussie Smollett Dropped


Earlier this month actor Jussie Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts of filing a false police report after he was accused of staging a hate crime and blaming it on Donald Trump supporters [click here if you missed that].

Today, after an emergency hearing, all the charges have been dropped...

Jussie's lawyers released the following statement:
"Today all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him." 
"Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgment."
"Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result."
"Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

Wow. I was waiting for the twist. I never believed the story but I also thought he was somehow set up by someone trying to create fake drama.

@11:50am & 1201pm: Immediately what comes to mind is:
All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts....
