Is This Why The Jussie Smollett Case Was Originally Thrown Out?

What many thought would be a slam dunk for the prosecution might wind up being their bigget embarrassment if the facts of this article is to be believed.

And why wasn't this picked apart by the media?

Take a look at this crucial piece of evidence from the video surveillance that turned the case on its head.

If true do you think people would be willing to give Jussie Smollett an apology after years of malignment?

Trial begins next week.

Jussie Smollett’s Singing The ‘B-Boy Blues’ As A Warm-Up To His Trial

The former Empire star has a new film, B-Boy Blues, an effort that marks his directorial debut. He screened the film, which still needs a distributor, on Friday in Harlem, and the auteur appeared in-person for a rare sighting outside the court room.

The B-Boy Blues film is based on James Earl Hardy’s 1994 novel of the same name.

Smollett posted about the film’s screening on Instagram.

“To see all the love for the film is crazy beautiful,” he said. “More to come while I catch up but to everyone who came out last night with so much love and community… on behalf of everyone @bboybluesfilm, thank you.”

Apparently he won a fan award for the film while he was in court.

I guess depending on the court decision will depend on the distribution he gets.

I think his biggest problem will be who pays back the 3,000 hours the police used believing his story.

It looks like they need it considering the hundreds of millions CPD has paid out due to police misconduct.

While its an old article, that video footage of the brothers at the store bound to get thrown out. He just hasnt done anything to prove himself correct. I never understood why he would do this to his career, so possibility of it happening is a 50/50

This case is getting even more weird. So the brothers DID attack him?

I'm just gonna get me a popsicle and sit down and watch. The news keeps saying not much is going to happen to him either way. I don't know if his career is completely over. His sister is slaying it right now, no telling what strong family connections can do since they are a tight knit family.

Yeah I'm really just interested in seeing if they will bring up the date on this tape.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong because that reads manufactured evidence and I can see why Chicago wouldn't want that to get out and therefore dismiss charges.

But I haven't heard it brought up yet so maybe it's a non story.

We'll see.

is he why EMPIRE ended or is this 'altercation' why he was being removed from the show?

I guess if he can fight and had the fear factor behind him, he allegedly fought these two guys allegedly in white face and masks off

New video places Jussie Smollett at scene of alleged hoax

He got fired because of the incident, in hopes that it would increase ratings for the show.

When that didn't happen they decided it would be the last season.

They shot themselves in the foot removing him for people who didn't actually watch the show.

Sadly Empire doesn't work without Terrence, Taraji and Jussie.
