Chicago mayor demands Jussie Smollett pay for hate crime investigation

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Thursday Jussie Smollett should pay for the department’s hate crime probe. His comments came following county prosecutors’ sudden decision to drop charges against the actor accused of faking the attack. Speaking at a rally later, President Trump called the case ’a terrible situation’ adding that this was one of the only times he agreed with Emanuel.

That's the least Smollett could do, he really shouldn't leave them hanging especially since he had this case bleached

Excellent. The 10k he 'forfeited' sure won't cover it!

As an observer from outside America I would suggest that if you tolerate this type of blatant corruption perpetrated in plain view and with such swaggering arrogance you will start to descend into a terminal free fall toward something resembling a failed African state. Those Zimbabwe and South African type hell holes all began with the undermining of the rule of law by those who felt themselves to be above it and by acquiescence of those too concerned with political fear to make a stand.

Word is that Smollett's lawyers are saying that the police owe Smollett an apology. What scumbags.

Arrest his ass, and arrest Michelle Obama too. This is a clear miscarriage of justice.

So now Trump is criticizing someone over an embarrassing scandal that could cost $130,000. Somebody call Alanis Morrisette... see if she can add this to the song!

I don't see on what grounds. Unless now city is going to be charged everybody who's involved investigation the cost of said investigation. Chargers were dropped which is bullshit but I don't see how the city has a standing to send him a bill
