Following the disgusting images broadcast live on Facebook of a teen white male being kidnapped, gagged, scalped, kicked, slapped and abused by several African-American youths yelling “F*** Donald Trump,” Chicago Police confirm the four people, who are all 18, were taken into custody but have not been formally charged.
The video has since been removed from YouTube but this is a clip:

As I reported, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson tried to downplay this as mere “stupidity”, referring to them as kids.
Police said the young man was tied, gagged and beaten.
The superintendent added that the victim has “mental health challenges.”
But, as AP reports, earlier Police were stating it’s too soon to determine whether the attack was racially or politically motivated. So despite clearly forcing the victim to shout
“F**k Donal Trump! F**K white people!”
Despite these actions, the police were somehow struggling to charge the four black thugs with a hate crime. Imagine if this had been reversed for a moment. Imagine the justified public and media outrage at a young mentally handicapped black man being tortured by four white thugs being forced to shout “f**k white people”. Imagine the riots that George Soros funded BLM group would instigate
Investigators will “determine whether or not this is sincere or just stupid ranting and raving,” Duffin said when asked about the language used in the recording.
What I find particlary disgusting about this case is not only the act itself but the reaction from certain elements on the left. Black lives matter leader Shaun King has said he “wont fight for justice ” for the disabled young man that was tortured on account of his skin colour. Is this not the definition of racist from an oprganisation that claims to be fighting for equality?
Shaun King’s stance on the matter has not changed. But most likely due to public concern and the power of social and alternative media mounting pressure on the Chicago police department has caved and labled this a hate crime. However, in a cowardly move, they are using mental illness as the reason not race.
Conservative Newt Gingrich has chimed in, warning that the U.S. was “at the edge of a terrible period” after a Facebook Live video surfaced in which a disabled Chicago teen is seen being tortured amid chants of “f— Donald Trump.”
“If this had been done to an African-American by four whites, every liberal in the country would be outraged and there would be no question that it is a hate crime,” Gingrich said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.”
“We are right at the edge of a terrible period — which I know President-elect Donald Trump wants to avoid — of having a deep bitter division in the communities in a way that makes America very hard to govern.”
The victim, while traumatized after his 48-hour ordeal, is back with his family and slowly recovering.
