In Chicago the fallout of the botched legal case of actor Jussie Smollett continues as Chicago police officers are protesting the judgement.
Off-duty Chicago PD joined a group of nearly 300 people in protest. They assembled outside the office of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx and called for her to resign. Foxx was responsible for dropping the charges against Smollett.
Smollett, is a black and gay actor that was charged with staging a hate crime against himself and filing multiple false police reports.
Foxx led the prosecution that dropped the charges, stunning local law enforcement who had not been notified of the decision.
So Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police organized the protest. President of a local chapter of the police union Kevin Graham shared that, “We are here to let people know that we want justice in Cook County.”
Protestors bore pins that read “Foxx Must Go!” while carrying sign that read “Resign now” and “Who let the Foxx in the henhouse.”
