JUSSIE SMOLLETT IS GOING TO BE RELEASED FROM JAIL ONE WAY OR THE OTHER
Pac – a few stints in jail Remy Ma – 6 years in jail Lil Kim – 1 year in jail DMX – 90 days in jail Martha Stewart – 5 months Lori Loughlin – 2 months
these are a random array of celebs who have spent time in jail.
they all did their time and moved on.
you didn’t hear a peep from them while they were in jail.
some came out of jail and became bigger stars. jussie smollett, who was sentenced to 150 days, has been making a ton of peeps since he started serving his sentence.
his family has “#freejussie” on all their socials. taraji p. henson has even compared him to emmett till:
yeah. emmett till.
a little boy who was draggedout of his home, beaten, tortured for hours,
and dumped in a river while being chained to a heavy metal object.
he is even said the judge put him in jail ( x because he is black ).
so the problem i’m having with jussie isn’t the sentencing. it’s really…
He has come off so insufferable that it’s hard to root for him.
he is a celebrity who isn’t even gen pop with the regulars.
he is getting the “celeb” jail experience,
he would have gotten out with good behavior in like 2 months. the latest is his fears he is gonna catch covid and be killed per tmz:
Jussie Smollett‘s lawyers have wasted no time demanding his release from jail — at least while his appeal plays out — claiming he risks being harmed (physically and microbially) every second he stays behind bars.
The ‘Empire’ actor’s legal team filed an emergency motion Monday asking a judge to spring Jussie from behind bars while his appeal is pending — arguing that the potential cons of him staying locked up in Cook County far outweigh any benefits.
The crux of their case here is that Jussie’s family has been on the receiving end of what they say is a barrage of harassing messages and phone calls aimed at Jussie … which they say is emblematic of the harm that might actually befall him if he remains locked up.To hammer this home … Jussie’s team offers up a video taken by the Smollett family which they say shows a stranger calling them with disgusting sentiments about what should happen to their brother as he serves his 5-month sentence.They claim the clip — which is laced with racist and homophobic slurs — is just one example of what they say has been a deluge of hate sent their way — and they fear that’ll translate into real-world violence against their brother on the inside.
There’s other reasons they say he should be out … for one, they attach a sworn affidavit from a doctor who states Jussie is at a higher risk of catching COVID due to a compromised immune system … while citing positive case rates in jails and prisons across the country.
On top of this … Jussie’s lawyers argue that because he’s being held in protective custody — which they say is akin to solitary confinement — his mental health will deteriorate.
we are gonna hear about jussie from now until his release. welp! the jussie smollett saga is going into round 3.
lowkey:why do i feel if this saga involved a regula degula, there would be no outrage?
