Kim Foxx publicly ‘recused’ herself, but pulled strings as the newly elected Cook County States Attorney. Just a few weeks ago she welcomed an investigation into her office over the Jussie Smollett case. A few days later, she claimed that racism was leading that investigation into her actions.
This whole thing stinks and calls for an audit by the Illinois Inspector Generals office to intervene and investigate.
She was elected to bring criminal justice reform? She was elected to prosecute people the Grand Jury indicts for the laws and counts the Grand Jury found that they violated. Besides, how is allowing a criminal to walk without his day in court or pleading guilty reform? Is it necessary to reform the reformer?
Now Foxx’s text messages are coming back to take down the prosecutor. Text messages, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request, also show that a supposed “recused” Foxx continued to consult with her team.
“One assistant in Kim Foxx’s office on the day those charges were dropped she wrote, just wish I could have anticipated the magnitude of this response and planned a bit better. And we also do, Jim, get an inkling of why those charges were dropped.
Kim Foxx says, you know, I’m recused but when people accuse us of overcharging cases 16 counts in a class felony becomes exhibit A. She goes on pedophile with four victims ten counts, washed up celeb who lied to cops, 16. Just because we can charge something doesn’t mean we should.”
I keep Foxx’s office say they didn’t exonerate him. What do you call dropping all 16 charges against him? I remember perfectly what the police commissioner of the city of Chicago said once the police investigation was complete, for example, the overwhelming evidence against Smollett including the sworn statements of the Nigerian brothers who staged the alleged “attack,” video footage, etc. Am I the only one sensing foul play here? Or is this the so-called “celebrity” justice?
The investigation should not be limited to this case. Her office should go through a complete internal audit to see just how far this sort of action goes into other cases. This can prove any motives that are really behind what is happening.
Total miscarriage of justice. Anyone else would have the book thrown at them and then buried under the jail for something like this.
