The country was stunned yesterday when footage emerged of four Chicago thugs kidnapping and torturing a disabled, white homeless man while they yelled things like “F*ck Donald Trump!” and “F*ck white people!” Now, the four thugs have learned their fate…
Daily Mail reported that three teenagers and a 24 year-old woman were charged on Thursday morning with aggravated kidnapping, aggravated unlawful restraint, aggravated battery and a hate crime. The four have been identified by the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office as Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; Brittany Covington, 18; and Tanisha Covington, 24.
In addition, Hill was charged with robbery and possession of a stolen motor vehicle. The four are scheduled to go before a judge later this afternoon.
This comes after tortured a disabled homeless man in a sickening, 30-minuted Facebook live video while hurling offensive epithets at him. The victim has not yet been identified, but police found him wandering the streets disoriented on Wednesday after his captors set him free.
The four reportedly tortured the man on Tuesday at an apartment on the 3400 block of West Lexington on Chicago’s West Side. The livestream video of the attack was initially posted online by Brittany Covington, but she later deleted it.
It is believed that the four kidnappers held the man hostage for a total of one to two days, during which time they sent a text message to the man’s parents. The victim’s parents in turn reported him missing on Monday.
The group were filmed kicking, punching, and cutting the victim’s hair until his scalp bled. They then dumped cigarette ash over the wound on his head and made him drink toilet water while they continued to beat him.
All the while, the group chanted “f*ck Donald Trump!” and “f*ck white people!”
“It’s sickening,” Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson said on Wednesday night. “It makes you wonder what would make individuals treat somebody like that. I’ve been a cop for 28 years, and I’ve seen things that you shouldn’t see in a lifetime, but it still amazes me how you still see things that you just shouldn’t.”
The victim has been treated and released from the hospital into his parents custody.
We’re glad to see that the perpetrators in this case have been charged with a hate crime. SHARE if you think they got what they deserved!
