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."

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.

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

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."

Let's take just kidnapping as an example.
That's a felony. :yes
720 ILCS 5/10-2 defines aggravated kidnapping. A person commits the offence of aggravated kidnapping, if s/he kidnaps another to obtain ransom, inflicts body harm armed with a dangerous weapon and armed with firearms. Also, a person who kidnaps a child under 13 years or a mentally retarded person commits the offence of aggravated kidnapping.

....
In Illinois, kidnapping is a Class 2 felony. Aggravated kidnapping is a Class X felony. For a Class 2 felony, the sentence of imprisonment shall be not less than three years and not more than seven years. For a Class X felony, the sentence of imprisonment shall be not less than six years and not more than 30 years.
https://kidnapping.uslegal.com/state...bduction-laws/

It's possible a judge could "Brock Turner" these guys. :shrug Prosecuted for jaywalking instead of aggravated kidnapping. Cause Duffin already indicates he doesn't see this as important. Perhaps it should have been somebody in his family as the victim instead. :sar3

It would be a grotesque miscarriage of justice for community service. Just hearing about how the victim reacted should be enough to make one realize this shouldn't just be swept under the rug... :mad
The victim is going to need a LOT of help to get through this.

And when they do nothing of the sort, HJ won't even bother recognizing his mistake... :shrug

This situation is akin to what anti-abortion groups do when you have an abortion clinic attack.
Not much...
Although I guess anti-abortion groups do try to weaken the laws implemented to protect abortion clinics from attacks...

BLM will probably just ignore this.
Nobody has shown how this has anything to do with them... :rolls

Here's another one which ties in to what I was talking about.
Idaho high school football player accused of raping black teammate spared jail | Daily Mail Online
A football player rectally rapes a mentally disabled teammate with a coat hanger.
John R.K. Howard, 19, of Keller, Texas, was originally charged with forcible sexual penetration by a foreign object after prosecutors said he kicked a coat hanger into the victim's rectum during the October 23, 2015, incident at Dietrich High School involving three male students.
And what's the outcome?
The criminal REFUSES TO ADMIT HE DID ANYTHING WRONG ...
... BUT he gets only probation and potentially the crime wiped from his record in the future. :mad
According to the paper, Howard submitted a modified guilty plea, in which he acknowledged he would be found guilty in a trial but maintained his innocence.

....
If Howard successfully completes probation, he could have his conviction dismissed.
:mad

So the guy refuses to admit he did anything wrong (maintaining innocence) and will likely have the conviction removed from his record in the future. :eek

4 charged with hate crimes, kidnapping

Chicago torture video: 4 charged with hate crimes, kidnapping - CNN.com

(CNN) Four suspects have been charged in connection with the attack on a special-needs teen that was streamed on Facebook Live.
Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper; 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanishia Covington, 24, have each been charged with a hate crime, felony aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Hill, Cooper and Brittany Covington also face charges of residential burglary. Hill also faces charges of possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Video of the torture has stunned the country, not just because of the graphic abuse, but because of the comments made by some of the assailants.
"*F*ck Donald Trump!" one attacker shouted in the video. "F*ck white people!"

The teen was tied up for four or five hours, Cmdr. Kevin Duffin of the Chicago Police Department told reporters. The victim will recover from his injuries and is at home with his parents, police said.

Duffin said the department sought hate crime charges because of the victim's diminished mental capacity, the fact that the four suspects tied him up and the racial epithets heard on the video. The victim apparently is white; the suspects are African-American.
The suspects will appear in court Friday.

Wow, talk about throwing the Stephen King sized book at them. Good. I am very glad to see that they will be charged with all that including hate crimes.

The victim was dropped off for a sleepover and got kidnapped and tortured. Imagine him being all happy that he's gonna spend the night with a friend and then being f-cking kidnapped. Nothing really hit me as hard about this story as that, totally f-cked up. And now he'll spend his days with the burden of the psychological damage that comes with such heinous acts, long after his body heals. :sad

Useful quotes pertinent to the subject at hand -

"Life in prison. No parole. I'm not interested in whether these kids had a tough life, whether their parents loved them enough, I don't care.

Whether this is a hate crime is a distraction and irrelevant - THIS IS THE COLD BLOODED TORTURE OF AN INNOCENT HUMAN BEING. That's bigger than a hate crime, it's bigger than racism (saying F*ck white people is racist by definition), its bigger than politics.

Life in prison. No parole. If you can do this to another human being once, you can't be trusted to not do it again.

My prayers go out to the young man in this disgusting video"

Montel Williams

--------------------
Also weighing in on the now-infamous Facebook video Thursday was civil rights icon Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr.

“The hateful assault of the victim – a white 18-year-old man with special needs, cowering in a corner in the video as four young African Americans torment and torture him – is a moral and spiritual collapse,” Jackson said in a prepared statement.

He said minorities find themselves to be targets in today’s racially charged climate.

:rofl2

Since when did that sop Obama from speaking out on ongoing investigations. He's done it on virtually all white-on-black crimes, but is speechless when the tables are turned.

If Obama had two sons and two daughters....

Perhaps he will now since the Rev. Jackson did.

The victim was dropped off for a sleepover and got kidnapped and tortured. Imagine him being all happy that he's gonna spend the night with a friend and then being f-cking kidnapped. Nothing really hit me as hard about this story as that, totally f-cked up. And now he'll spend his days with the burden of the psychological damage that comes with such heinous acts, long after his body heals. :sad

On the news tonight. The victim had mental health issues, the perpetrators where well aware of that. They beat him for over five hours when he finally was able to break away. The guy in the apartment below them started to get upset with the noise in the apartment above and threatened to call the cops. The four perpetrators went down to harass this guy and the victim was able to get away out into the frigid cold temperatures in Chicago will very light clothing. This kid had mental issues before all this. I can't imagine what his life ahead will be. Sad story

Obama already spoke out on this. Maybe the problem is where you go for news.
