    The white man is bound, gagged and repeatedly assaulted as the gang of racist black thugs force him to say "**** Donald Trump" and "**** white people". The victim in question has special needs and was described as "high-risk missing person from northwest suburban Crystal Lake". Four people, two male and two female, aged 18, have been arrested.

    I'm rather surprised this rather horrific story isn't getting more attention from the media. It's not fake news, it wasn't a hoax, it actually happened. But only a handful of papers and broadcasters are talking about it.

    The poor guy was mentally disabled, too.

      I thought this was fake news at first!

      From the BBC:

      Four black people face hate crime and kidnapping charges for the Facebook Live-aired torture of a mentally disabled white man, who was made to drink from a toilet bowl, had part of his scalp removed with a knife, and was bound, gagged and beaten, while the assailants can be heard making derogatory statements against white people and Donald Trump.

      Police said the 18-year-old victim was dropped off by his parents at a McDonald's restaurant on 31 December to meet his friend, Jordan Hill, who later became one of his attackers. The pair drove around for two days, sleeping inside a van that Mr Hill had allegedly stolen without the victim's knowledge, before ending up at the Covington sisters' home.

      Chicago Police Commander Kevin Duffin said the victim finally escaped when his attackers went downstairs to confront a resident who had called police because of the noise.

      Cdr Duffin said the racial slurs and references to the victim's mental capacity, depicted in the video, led to the hate crime charges.

      One of the female attackers allegedly kicked in the front door of the neighbour's home, resulting in burglary charges for three of the suspects.

      The escaped captive was found disorientated and traumatised, walking the streets. The victim, who had difficulty communicating with police, was taken to hospital for medical treatment, and discharged.

      Several people can be seen drinking, laughing and smoking, while their captive cowers in the corner of the room. In other videos posted online the young man is forced at knife-point to say: "I love black people".

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-38525549

      Despite the police's confusion over the motive, the Cook County State's Attorney's Office have now charged them with a hate crime.

      The official ruling is "All four suspects were charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Hill, Cooper and Covington were also charged with residential burglary. Hill was additionally charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, according to the attorney's office."

      It doesn't fit the narrative that it is white people who are the only violent and racist group

        I get that there are a few bad apples and all ... but what really concerns me is that a woman with over 700 friends on FB live streamed this for THIRTY MINUTES and no cops come busting the door down. Why did no one report this as it happened? Her sister comments on the stream, "this isn't funny" as it's happening, but apparently doesn't call the cops nor does anyone else.

          Perpetrators: "**** white people, you deserve this for voting Trump!"
          CNN: "We have no idea at this point if it is racial or politically motivated."

          lol

          Regardless of whether or not the jury can identify them, it seems like police might not treat this as a hate crime. Here is the transcribed quote from the investigator:

          "Kids make stupid mistakes, I shouldn't call them kids, they are legally adults, but they are young adults and the[sic] make stupid decisions," Duffin said of the vulgar remarks about Trump and white people. "That certainly will be part of whether or not we seek a hate crime, determine whether or not this is sincere or stupid ranting and raving."

          Edit 3 Here is a video of Duffin making the statement: https://twitter.com/tml103/status/816866814428934145

          Edit 5 I don't want to editorialize too much, but a minor today was charged with "ethnic intimidation (a hate crime)" for making a video where he called a black student the n-word and made references to him being on welfare: http://www.mcall.com/news/breaking/m...103-story.html

          Two individual cases don't make a dataset, but it shows just how low the bar can be for a hate crime charge.

          They are not kids. They are thugs and should be in a cell. As for the media, they continue to prove themselves unworthy of the name.

          For me it's 2nd top story on the BBC...

          The article mentions the racial aspect.

          Police did call it a hate crime, albeit "possible". Which at this stage sounds a bit like calling someone an alleged murderer rather than murderer, before a possible conviction by a jury.

          Removed without reason. I wonder what could possibly be the motive behind this...
          It truly is a mystery.

          How many cities are in flames as a result of this vile racist attack? Many shops have been looted and cars burned, I would imagine...? :moon:

          Imagine for a moment that a young black man with special needs had been kidnapped, abused and tortured by a gang of smirking white youths?

          Imagine watching a video of this black man’s horrific ordeal streamed live on Facebook?

          Imagine seeing and hearing the white assailants systematically torment their black victim, physically and mentally?

          Imagine watching them kicking him, punching him, scalping him and flicking burning cigarette ash on the wounds they inflicted with their vicious, sustained assault?

          Imagine hearing one of them shouting ‘F**k Barack Obama! F**k black people!’ as they did so?

          Then imagine the video of all this emerging and hitting TV screens and news websites across America.

          All hell would rightly have broken loose.

          There would have been instant huge protests, and probably riots.

          The #BlackLivesMatter group would have lit up social media demanding ‘justice’.

          Black celebrities, led by the likes of Beyoncé and John Legend, would have made statements expressing their fury at the incident and their solidarity with the victim.

          Police, under the huge pressure of such concerted public outrage, would have undoubtedly confirmed this as a hate crime.

          Yet as I write this, I don’t see any protests, riots, social media campaigns or celebrity statements.I don’t even see the police having the guts to call this attack what it is.

          Stuff like this is caused by the racist system that oppresses PoC daily. There's no doubt that this is disgusting but it hasnt came out of nowhere. If the racist system isn't working for you white people, help us to dismantle it so **** like this doesn't happen to anybody of any background or race.

          ... Black thugs kidnapping and torturing a mentally disabled man is caused by structural racism? No, it's caused by violent racist ghetto thugs who have nothing to look forward to in their lives (other than drugs, prison, and death).

          exactly. they have nothing to look forward to because they're are so disadvantaged in society. Race also plays apart on the war on drugs and in prisons which further leaves black people in horrible situations. If people feel that they have nothing to live for and result to crimes like this, we have clearly messed up somewhere. Let's face it if you leave people disadvantaged in society for too long, they're going to take extreme measures. This is a cry the system is broken.

          You act like black people protest and riot whenever there is a crime against them. There's a difference between protesting unlawful killings by the police who are supposed to protect you and protesting every other crime that's committed by a different race.

          When Dylann Roof killed those black people in a church there were no riots or looting that took place. He was widely condemned and rightly so and has since been found guilty. These 4 disgusting imbeciles will get the book thrown at them and rightfully so too.

          The only people to have "messed up" is the 4 black racist thugs who will hopefully be serving very long prison sentences (it is a shame there is no death penalty in Illinois).

          Let's face it if you leave people disadvantaged in society for too long, they're going to take extreme measures.
          There are more White children living in poverty in the U.S. than Black children.
