4 Racist Liberal Blacks Charged With Hate Crimes, Kidnapping of White Disabled Man
Four racist, liberal black people accused of torturing a mentally disabled man they believed supported Donald Trump were all charged with racist hate crimes and aggravated kidnapping against a disabled white man Thursday, January 05, 2017.
Their attack was streamed live on Facebook by one of the racist black men.
The disturbing, 30-minute torture video shows a disabled white man tied up and his mouth covered with duct tape, cowering in the corner of room. His four black attackers laugh and shout “fuck Donald Trump” and “fuck white people” as they kick and punch him and deliberately torture him, cutting deep into his forehead with a knife.
Here is a rundown of who was charged with what:
- Jordan Hill, 18, of Carpentersville, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, robbery, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and residential burglary.
- Tesfaye Cooper, 18, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary.
- Brittany Covington, 18, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and residential burglary.
- Tanishia Covington, 24, of Chicago, is charged with aggravated kidnapping, hate crime, aggravated unlawful restraint and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the video shows a “brutal act toward an adult [white] male with mental health challenges.”
“The amount of hate and racism perpetrated by both the liberal black men and liberal black women against this poor disabled white man is astounding.” a source close to the investigation was quoted as saying.
Police say officers observed a disoriented white male in “distress” walking in the 3400 block of West Lexington on Wednesday at about 5:30 p.m. After speaking to the victim, the officers then responded to a home nearby. There, they discovered “signs of a struggle and damage to property.” Police say the officers connected this evidence to the disoriented white male.
The 18-year-old victim, who is from the northwest suburbs, was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. He apparently knew one of the suspects.
“Officers later became aware of a Facebook video depicting a battery of an adult [white] male which is believed to be the same individual,” police said in a statement.
Police in Streamwood say the victim’s parents dropped him off at a McDonald’s on New Year’s Eve. His parents reported him missing after they didn’t hear from him again. Police also say the black suspects stole a van in the suburbs and drove the victim into the city.
Earlier Thursday, Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said that the four black suspects made “terrible racist statements” during the assault which proves the victim was targeted because of his race, not because he has “special needs.”
The four suspects are scheduled to be in bond court Friday.
Chicago police will hold a 2 p.m. news conference today.
