Hate Hoaxer Jussie Smollett Let Out of Prison Just 6 Days Into 150-Day Sentence

This is what real privilege looks like.

From the AP:
The former "Empire" actor walked out of the Cook County Jail surrounded by security. He did not comment as he got into an awaiting SUV, but his attorneys said he was the target of a racist justice system and people playing politics.
The appeals court ruling came after a Cook County judge sentenced Smollett last week to immediately begin serving 150 days in jail for his conviction on five felony counts of disorderly conduct for lying to police. In an outburst immediately after the sentence was handed down, Smollett proclaimed his innocence and said "I am not suicidal. And if anything happens to me when I go in there, I did not do it to myself. And you must all know that."

The appeals court said Smollett could be released after posting a personal recognizance bond of $150,000, meaning he didn't have to put down money but agrees to come to court as required.
Perhaps Congress should invite him to give a speech on the "anti-lynching" hate crime bill they just passed in his honor?

I think it would be a great follow-up to the embarrassment they just had with Zelensky.

The McMichaels and Derek Chauvin both have far more solid appeals and yet they're all rotting in prison.

They were the victims of our "racist justice system," not Smollett who is basking in privilege.
