    Relationship Between Police and Prosecutors Tested By Dropping of Jussie Smollett Charges I5Bn3

    From The Chicago Tribune

    Annie Sweeney and Jeremy Gorner of The Chicago Tribune wrote:The Chicago Police Department's dress-blue graduation ceremony was winding down at Navy Pier on Tuesday when Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Mayor Rahm Emanuel hurried off the stage for some jolting news: The case against Empire actor Jussie Smollett, meticulously pieced together by more than a dozen detectives, had been abruptly dropped by prosecutors.

    Both Johnson and Emanuel were infuriated, not just because the charges were dismissed but because prosecutors had not informed investigators first. Johnson said the decision allowed Smollett to hide behind a secret deal. The mayor was more blunt: "This sends an unambiguous message that there is no accountability."

    The relationship between the Police Department and the state's attorney's office has always been uneasy and often tense as investigators gather evidence and prosecutors decide whether it's enough for charges. Over the years, Chicago detectives have complained their work has resulted in too few defendants being charged or the charges being reduced or, as in this case, dismissed altogether.

    But the Smollett case now threatens to deepen the distrust and suspicion.

    "It could be that there was some kind of reasoning, but that needs to be shared with the public now and particularly with police, who spent so much time on this case," said veteran defense attorney Tom Needham, a former prosecutor who once worked as general counsel for the Police Department. "I would imagine their confidence in the state's attorney's office is going to be shaken a bit."

    Officers interviewed by the Tribune were not as measured, with a detective calling the decision to dismiss the case "reprehensible." He said officers were especially "hot" because of the painstaking review of video surveillance that helped solve the case. As a result, he added, the state's attorney's office "can't be trusted."

    Still confused?  Good.  It's safe to say that you're not the only one.  Still a lot of questions left unanswered.  Still leaving my comments until we know what the truth is in this case.  As of right now, to quote WWE Hall of Fame Superstar Sting, "The only thing that's for sure is that nothing's for sure."

    Just Saying.
