And it’s not just ordinary citizens, either.

Jussie Smollett

As the Jussie Smollett fiasco begins to fade from our view, the people of Chicago are furious, still.

And they have every right to be.  In their city, a city that they love, a young, rich, famous man committed an outright hate crime hoax and got away scot-free.

The explanations from the prosecutor in the case has been tepid at best, further infuriating those who see nothing more than the privileged gaining even more privilege.

The anger has boiled over now, with even Chicago’s bravest men and women taking to the streets in protest.

Prompted by prosecutors’ handling of actor Jussie Smollett’s alleged crimes, The Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) Chicago Lodge Seven sponsored a protest of Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx. That protest was held in front of the Cook County Administration Building on 69 West Washington, where the CCSA has offices.

You know things are bad when the police are protesting.

And it wasn’t just the Smollett case that had the police group angry, as one officer explained to the Daily Caller.

Police and their supporters who spoke with the Caller said the reaction to the Smollett case was the result of pent-up frustration over numerous issues.

“The Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office has been smoldering for a while, and this is the case that was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Enough’s enough,” said Tony, a CPD officer.

From their days as a prohibition-era smuggling center, the Windy City has long been rife with corruption.

Maybe now, the city’s brave men and women are drawing a thin blue line in the sand.

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
