Full stop. The charges against Jussie Smollett have been dropped by the Cook County state attorney general's office. You read that right. Someone can falsely claim to be a victim of a politically, racially, and sexual orientation based hate crime and despite whatever damages it does to the country during a time of great division...he's absolved from any legal responsibility? You've literally got to be pulling our dicks here.Call us old fashioned if you want. Call us whatever the name you want under the sun, but this idea that people of influence or people with money or even the potential for a great future shouldn't be held accountable for their actions like the rest of us is abysmal.Names like Brock Turner, Michael Jackson, Robert Blake, Robert H. Richards IV....just some of the names we're going to forever lump in with Jussie Smollet...not a great list of people to be included on. Spare us the hate for including Michael Jackson on the list, he did nefarious shit. The list of wealthy and influential people is long and dirty. People who have used their wealth and power to get out of paying their debt to society.If we truly are a nation of equal rights under the law, please show us the equality here, because we can guarantee if it was anyone else without his influence and wealth, they'd be in jail.Look, Jussie Smollett didn't commit any sort of sexual offense...no he faked a hate crime based on the current climate of race, sexuality, and politics to make himself relevant. It was all ego.Maybe, we guess if we want to be an important person who is well known, we'll just go shout fire at a movie theatre when there isn't a fire or yell bomb really loud at the airport. It's not like our actions should have consequences or anything like that.The above paragraph is obviously all sarcasm, we don't recommend doing any of those things because aside from just being against the law, it's plain out morally wrong. We wouldn't do it even if it wasn't against the law. We're not trying to get people trampled to death. For f***'s sake does anyone at the Cook County state attorney general's office have a conscience? Apparently not.In a time where this country needs more healing than anyone and everyone is willing to admit, a man receiving no punishment for his crime against our society, using his position of influence and wealth to add fuel to an already volatile fire...dropping the charges makes about as much sense as sticking my dick in a wood chipper.
