Deroy Murdock: Jussie Smollett's real victims? 5,520 killed, assaulted or robbed

Fox News - 05-20


The cast of "Empire" wants Jussie Smollett back on TV. The victims of 5,520 serious crimes would beg to differ — at least those who still can speak. In response to my Freedom of Information Act request, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) told me that criminals perpetrated 5,520 offenses in the Windy City between January 29, when the black, gay actor first reported that he suffered a racist, homophobic beating, and February 20, when prosecutors indicted him for concocting the whole thing.
