For 1st Time, Cops Release Video Of Jussie Smollett With Noose Around Neck & His “Attackers”
The saga of Jussie Smollett’s allegedly staged “attack” seemed all but a done-dada, after his 16 felony count indictment for filing a false police report was dropped. Only for that same case to gain new steam after a judge recently decided that Cook County State Attorney Kim Foxx had no authority to appoint her replacement, after recusing herself from the case. As a result, not only is Jussie facing the possibility of new charges for the crime, but a new videos have now been released of that fateful day in January.
Cops’ Body Cam Footage Of Jussie With Noose…
Chicago P.D. has just released body cam footage of the responding officers who showed up to investigate Jussie’s “attack” on January 29th. As we all know, Jussie claimed that he was attacked by two White dudes in MAGA hats, who poured bleach on him and placed a noose around his neck, as he was walking home from a Subway restaurant in Chicago.
In the newly released body cam video, Jussie can be seen with the noose wrapped around his neck approximately 40 minutes after he said the attack happened. The officers can be heard asking Jussie if he wanted to remove the rope from around his neck, to which he stated that he’d left it there for them to see it first.
Many of you may recall when the investigation began to unravel. At that time, Chicago law enforcement revealed they first had suspicions about Jussie’s story when they went to his apartment. One of their initial red flags was that the rope was still oddly wrapped around his neck for 40 minutes, before they’d arrived.
Prior to the cameras being turned off, Jussie made it clear that he didn’t want the neighbors in his building to witness the drama, so he immediately invited the cops to his apartment. He told the cops he didn’t want to be recorded. So before turning off their cameras, the two officers asked Jussie if he was sure he was cool with them shutting the cameras off and he agreed.
