|East Garfield Park|
But the victim is a white man, with special needs--and the perpetrators are black. But that of course doesn't mean he suffers any less.
Nothing to see here, liberals will say, move along.
From Fox Chicago:
Chicago investigators are questioning four African-Americans after a Facebook Live video shows a group of people torturing a white mentally disabled man while someone yelled "F*** Trump!" and "F*** white people!"More...
Chicago police were made aware of the video Tuesday afternoon. A young African American woman streamed the video live on Facebook showing at least four people holding the young white man hostage.
Throughout the video, the victim is repeatedly kicked and hit, his scalp is cut, all while he is tied up with his mouth taped shut.The atrocities occurred in the hellhole called East Garfield Park, which I visited about a year ago in one of my urban exploration trips. It is one of Chiraq's most violent neighborhoods--and there is stiff competition there.
At one point, the victim is held at knife point and told to curse President-elect Donald Trump. The group also forces the victim to drink water from a toilet.
The four alleged torturers are in police custody.
UPDATE 1pm CST:
From ABC Chicago:
Four people were accused Thursday of committing a hate crime, in connection with the apparent torture of an 18-year-old man with special needs that was streamed live on Facebook. They each face several other charges.So far there is no statement from President Barack Obama about this hateful torture spree that happened in his hometown. Next week the lame duck will give his farewell address in Chicago.
Jordan Hill, 18, of Carpentersville; Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago; Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago; and Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago were each charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary. Hill was also charged with robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle.
Racial animosity is at its highest level, in my opinion, since the early 1970s. Obama owns it. His embrace of radical groups such as Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter fueled the fire. His collectivist style of ruling--dividing people into groups and subgroups, so he can be their savior--plays a role in the rise of racial hate. The lame duck quickly inserted himself into the Trayvon Martin shooting and the Ferguson, Missouri unrest.
Why so silent, Obama? Because the victim is white and the alleged attackers are black?
I just visited the White House web site. There is a statement on the official delegation that will be sent to Ghana for the inauguration of Nana Akufo-Addo. There is nothing on the attack and kidnapping of the Chicago special needs man as of this hour.
