Chicago police decided to release 70 hours of video connected to the Jussie Smollett case in which he claims to have been beat up by someone, had a noose tied around his neck, and bleach spilled on him.
Footage from one officers body cam shows members of the police walking up to Smollett’s apartment where the Empire actor then greets them with a noose still tied around his neck. Wheen asked if he was ever going to take the noose off, Smollett replies, “yeah I do. I just wanted you to see. There’s bleach on me. They poured bleach on me.” Then the officers are asked to turn off their body cameras.

Another video shows the Osundairo brother wearing what people are claiming to suggest to be hazmat suits inside of a taxi where they will then allegedly begin staging the attack.

There is a possibility that Smollett may be charged again as a special prosecutor is currently looking into the matter.
