Chicago Police: Jussie Smollett’s ‘Redacted’ Phone Records Not Enough for Criminal Investigation

Breitbart: The Chicago Police Department said Monday that it does not have enough evidence to launch a criminal investigation into the alleged assault of Empire actor Jussie Smollett after he turned over “limited and redacted phone records” to detectives.

“We are very appreciative of the victim’s cooperation however the records provided do not meet the burden for a criminal investigation as they were limited and heavily redacted,” Chicago Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a statement. “Detectives may be following up with him to request additional data to corroborate the investigative timeline.”

Smollett alleges two masked men attacked him along a street in the Streeterville neighborhood as he was walking home from a restaurant on January 29. The 36-year-old alleges they punched him, hurled racist and homophobic insults at him, poured an unknown chemical substance on him, and wrapped a rope around his neck. Guglielmi said the actor told police that the alleged attackers shouted he was in “MAGA country,” an apparent reference to President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” slogan.  more here

  1. The police are being very politically correct but saying “he’s lying and we are asking for full phone records which will corroborate our theory. He won’t give them to us so we are acting like we really, really want to find his attacker, but are really gathering evidence against him.”

  2. The phone thing really, really seems to suggest something funny going on.

    Like something very different took place than what was claimed, or maybe the whole thing was just a planned hoax from the start.

  3. why. why.. it’s. it’s as if it just never happened.

    Because. it. didnt!

    just more free publicity for this back door thespian.

    Come on, yeah.
    Yeah, come on, yeah.
    Oh, yeah..

    I am a … yousa back door thespian.
    I’m another back door thespian.
    The girls don’t know,
    Butt the little boiZ understand.

  4. Waterboard this fruitcake, he will talk.

    I do wonder however, what was all the sick gay shit their phones pinged that had to be redacted?

  5. The queer kid Smellit is loony enough to have hit himself and put the noose around his neck.

    Maybe the cops should arrest him for beating himself. If suicide is considered to be a crime (yes, in some places), maybe beating yourself should be a crime also.

  6. Sure. Some agent was just up at 2am talking to his client while he got him a Subway sammich.

    If you’re my agent I better be getting something better than that or you’re fired. At least deliver it in the freezing cold after midnight in Murderville ffs.

    I’m a rich TV star. Never made sense. And if they subpoena his records and he deleted texts that implicate him, that’s destroying evidence isn’t it.


    He will pretend there was a hate crime, and the police will pretend to continue to look for the attackers without calling him a liar and charging him.
