An Illinois judge blasted crooked DA Kim Foxx for her preferential treatment of Jussie Smolett. The Daily Wire reports:
A Cook Country judge ripped into embattled Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx for allegedly giving special treatment to TV star Jussie Smollett, a transcript obtained by FOX 32 revealed.
According to the Chicago Police Department, Smollett “orchestrated” a hate crime hoax against himself in January. However, Foxx’s office dropped 16 felony disorderly conduct charges against the actor for having previously served a mere 16 hours of community service and forfeiting a $10,000 bond.
Twenty-one-year-old Candace Clark, who faces a single felony count for allegedly making a false police report, is not getting the same treatment, argued Cook County Judge Marc Martin.
“I’d like to know why Ms. Clark is being treated differently than Jussie Smollett. It’s a disorderly conduct case. A lot less egregious than Mr. Smollett’s case. I have a problem with it,” Judge Marc Martin said of Foxx at an April 11 court hearing.
Why should ordinary citizens be subjected to the full force of the law when celebrities who do worse get to escape justice? Unequal justice is no justice.
