The Judge Didn’t Hold Back, Watch:
I was kind of worried that people would take it easy on Jussie Smollett.
I think, however, that all those involved feel that Jussie has both betrayed them… and SHAMED their city.
And so no… they’re not being gentle. Not even close.
According to Fox News:
The judge who set “Empire” star Jussie Smollett’s bond at $100,000 gave the actor an earful after Smollett was charged Thursday with disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report.
“As you stand before me we presume you’re innocent but the state read me a proffer that is outrageous. If true, the noose conjures up [the] greatest evil in this country,” Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr. told Smollett.
The 36-year-old actor said little other than giving his name at the beginning of Thursday’s hearing. His attorney, who said the actor denies all charges against him, asked the judge to release Smollett on his own recognizance. However, the judge said that would be inappropriate.
Yes- the evidence against him IS OUTRAGEOUS.
There’s video of the brothers purchasing all the items needed for the hoax.
The wrote those men CHECKS for crying out loud.
The evidence is LOUD AND CLEAR.
