  1. “prosecutors in Chicago dropped all charges”

    Apparently the mayor and chief of police were blindsided by this and are furious about it (I would be too in their position).
    On the other hand, an FBI investigation is ongoing so….


  2. Another case of the “too important to lose” phenomenon.
    Smollett is obviously pulling in a lot of profit for the network who employs him, and they don’t want to lose “their” precious “asset” and will hang onto him any way they can.
