4 arrested for live stream abuse of young man
 
From Chicago. The Police picked up a physically and emotionally traumatized young man who they describe as mentally challenged. His abuse and torture had been live streamed on Facebook by his 4 eighteen year old amused tormenters who were critical of white people and Donald Trump. Besides being forced to drink from the toilet, he was roughed up and terrorized.
It is suggested at the end of the article that these adults are "kids" who make stupid decisions.

CHICAGO Two men and two women are in custody after police found a missing suburban man who was allegedly kidnapped and tortured on a live-stream video on the West Side.
Denouncing violent acts against a helpless man as "sickening," Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson on Wednesday night credited beat officers in the 11th District for ensuring the victim's safety and working to bring in the alleged attackers.

Tuesday afternoon, officers found a disoriented man while on patrol in the 3400 block of West Lexington Street. The man, whom officers said had mental health challenges, was taken to an area hospital for treatment, police said.

The victim was so distraught, it took most of the night before he could speak with officers, police said. The man's condition wasn't known, but he was listed as "stable," police said.

"He's traumatized by the incident, and it's very tough to communicate with him at this point," Area North Cmdr. Kevin Duffin said Wednesday.

Around 5:26 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to a battery at a home in the 3300 block of West Lexington. They discovered signs of a struggle and damage to the property and were able to connect the home to the missing man, police said.

Officers were later alerted to a video of the man being assaulted and are questioning suspects, police said.

"You hear the narrative that police are backing down and not doing their jobs," Johnson said. "This is a perfect example of them doing their jobs. They cared enough to take the case and continue the investigation, and it brought us to where we are right now."

In the live-streamed video, the man's clothes are torn, cigarette ashes are thrown on him, and his hair is cut with a knife until his scalp bleeds, according to CBS Chicago.

The victim was held for one or two days in the West Lexington residence after he willingly came to Chicago with one of his alleged attackers, whom he knew from a suburban school, police said. Eventually, they unbound him and let him go, officers said.

NBC Chicago reported the man was bound and gagged while the attackers shouted "F--- Donald Trump."

But some of the comments could be chalked up to mere "stupidity," and were unlikely politically motivated, Johnson said.

"I really can't say what's in the mind of four individuals that would do something as sickening as this," Johnson said. "But I can't connect what these folks did" with Trump's comments about Chicago violence.

"It's people just ranting about something they think might make a headline," Johnson added.

The victim was reported missing and endangered, police said. He did not report being under the influence of any intoxicants, but a toxicology report will take a few weeks, police said. He is believed to be from suburban Crystal Lake, CBS reports.

Prosecutors expect to file charges Thursday against the four people arrested, police said. Kidnapping and committing a hate crime are among the charges being considered, officers said.

The accused assailants three from Chicago and one from Carpentersville were teenagers, which police said they would factor into the investigation.

"Although they are adults, they're 18. Kids make stupid decisions," Duffin said. "That certainly will be part of whether or not we seek [to charge them with] a hate crime, to determine whether or not this is sincere, or just stupid ranting and raving."

WTF is with this "benefit of a doubt" bullsh*t?...:mad

If someone who didn't vote for Hillary or had a homeschooled child did 1/10th of this, they'd be representing every Trump supporter who ever lived, but these savages have no motive until they make a statement, in triplicate, and have it notarized...:rolls

I love these "if" suggestions. These are some sick fuqs I don't care their politics. I wouldn't jail them though. I would make them do community service until they bleed and also make them all pay the victim at least 5k EACH. jailing them just creates perpetual criminals. Now, if they don't pay the guy within a year or two I would jail them.

How many calories do you burn fantasizing about how victimized you and people who think like you are? :thumbsup

Perhaps you think Jerry Sandusky got away with it as long as he did because his victims were Republicans?
:sar3

I hope Duffin loses his job out of this.
These "kids" need to go away for a long time.

Duffin's statement reminds me of how some people will try to look the other way when the jock breaks the law cause they're thinking about the team. How a girl can get raped by the quarterback and then a good chunk of the town automatically assume she's a whore.
Some people have a profoundly screwed up sense of "value". The "boys will be boys" mentality is what sympathized with Brock Turner being inconvenienced cause he raped somebody. :rolls

What charges would send them away? Assault and possibly kidnapping? Is it possible that little if any jail time will be served and only probation and community service?

Not me. I would kick the crap out of them on a daily basis, until the zombie apocaplyse arrived. P*ssyfooting is for snowflakes.

Facebook Live video shows disabled man tied up, beaten as captors yell 'F--- white pe
 
But it's Trump and his supporters who are racist....

Maybe Loretta Lynch will investigate.

Just kidding. Wrong color victim for her to care.

Facebook Live video shows disabled man tied up, beaten as captors yell 'F--- white people!' | Fox News

Chicago police on Thursday were considering filing hate crime charges after a mentally disabled white man was bound, duct-taped and tortured by four African-Americans who yelled anti-Trump and racial slurs while broadcasting the heinous ordeal on Facebook Live.

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson told reporters Wednesday that two males and two females -- including the woman believed to have shot the video -- were in custody, though no names or ages of the suspects were given. Formal charges were expected to be filed Thursday, FOX32 Chicago reported.

"It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that, Johnson said. "I've been a cop for 28 years and I've seen things that you shouldn't see. It still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn't."

"I'm not going to say it shocked me, but it was sickening."

The woman who allegedly recorded the video posted it on her Facebook account and Chicago police were made aware of the footage on Tuesday afternoon. Authorities later found the 18-year-old unidentified victim, who appeared to be disoriented, walking down a street wearing only shorts despite the cold weather.

Police believe the incident began when the victim, who lives in Crystal Lake, met acquaintances in Streamwood, a neighboring suburb. The group then drove to Chicago in a stolen vehicle, FOX32 reported.

The victim was kept tied up with his mouth taped shut in an apartment on the city's west side. The video showed him cowering in a corner while someone yelled "F--- white people!" and "F--- Donald Trump!" At one point in the video, the victim was held at knifepoint and told to curse the president-elect.

The video shows the victim being repeatedly kicked and hit, while his scalp was cut. The group also forced the victim to drink water from a toilet.


The suspects can be heard saying they want the video to go viral.

Investigators said late Wednesday the victim was a classmate of one of the suspects, and added he was held in the apartment for at least 24 hours, possibly as long as 48 hours.

Johnson said authorities currently don't believe the crime was politically motivated, despite the disparaging remarks about Trump.

"I think some of it is just stupidity, people just ranting about something that they think might make a headline," Johnson said. "I don't think that at this point we have anything concrete to really point us in that direction, but we'll keep investigating and we'll let the facts guide us on how this concludes."

A Facebook spokesman told The Associated Press the company removed the video because it does "not allow people to celebrate or glorify crimes on Facebook."
