‘Jaw is on the floor’: Asst. state’s attorney offers ‘most absurd statement imaginable’ on dropping charges against Jussie Smollett

A lot of people are understandably pissed off over all charges against Jussie Smollett being dropped. But something tells us they’re about to get a lot more pissed:
Here’s what assistant state’s attorney Joe Magats had to say:
NEW from Chicago: Joe Magats, the first assistant state's attorney who made the final decision to drop the charges against Jussie Smollett, says in an interview: "We didn't exonerate him."

Magats, the asst state's atty, said he saw no problems with the police investigation or the evidence against Smollett. The charges against Smollett were dropped in return for his agreement to do community service, he said, and for forfeiting his bond to the city of Chicago.

More from the asst state's attorney: "Here's the thing -- we work to prioritize violent crime and the drivers of violent crime. Public safety is our number one priority. I don't see Jussie Smollett as a threat to public safety."

"We stand behind the investigation, we stand behind the decision to charge him and we stand behind the charges in the case. The mere fact that it was disposed of in an alternative manner does not mean that there were any problems or infirmities in the case or the evidence."

So, Magats is admitting that Smollett may very well be guilty of the crimes of which he was accused? But that it’s OK because he’s not “a threat to public safety”?
Maybe tell someone else, while they’re at it:
Though it’s not as if Stelter will care.
It certainly looks that way.
Chicago’s really working overtime to hold onto that reputation for corruption.
Evidently.

Join the club.
